Multi channel audio not exporting from fcpx xml as mono to logic always comes in a mixed surround

I have a long edit cut with 24 bit multi channel wav files (i.e 6 microphones on separate tracks but in a single wav file.)
This is very a very common production practice.
when i import into fcpx it defaults to seeing the files as surround. I change this to mono so i can mix and spit the audio between each mic.
The last step in the edit is to hand the mix off to the sound designer in logic.
however no matter how i export the xml file for logic. it always comes in as a surround file again instead of mixed mono files.
it shows up in logic as 6 tracks but all but generally only the top track has a mono mix of all 6 and the rest are blank.
it shows that all 6 are seen as 5.1 surround indicated by the icon.
interestingly if i just import the file directly into logic it comes in as 6 mono files. (the icon for mono showing and all are separate microphones)
Any ideas on how to get fcpx not to export the audio xml as surround? (it seems that it is locked to that on import no matter how i modify after)

Ok so i order to help anyone who is interested.
The only ironic solution to this problem i found was to use a plugin called xto7 to convert the xml to the old fcp7 format.
i then imported this into premiere pro.
this was then able to export an OMF that when imported into logic 10 that was using the correct 6ch mono setting as separate tracks.
Insane but it works until Apple fixes the incorrect meta data import in FCPX that sets the xml export to the default import that is always surround.
this is the only way i was able to send stems with all the edit points and fades for the sound editor.
If you don't have premiere lying around you maybe able to do it with fcp7 too we just didn't have it in this studio.
Fingers crossed Apple fixes the fcpx xml export.

  • Strange glitch in my audio when exporting from FCPX.

    I just finished my short film in FCPX today, and exported it. I used Apple's ProRes 422(HQ) format to export it using the "Export Using Compressor Settings" options. I was content with the video quality, however the audio was I believe to have been corrupted. I played my video in QuickTime X and on both my iMac and my MacBook Pro I can hear really annoying and distracting glitches that keep cutting up my audio and making the bass sound extremely weird. In the end, I put my video in iMovie, silenced out the audio and put on a track of the same song I was using in the original video. And just like I expected, the audio of the file that came out of iMovie did not have any of these weird glitches. Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong in FCPX that is casuing this problem or it might be something to do with the software itself? Perhaps bugs?

    No, they are AAC audio files, 256kbps that I got from my iTuens library. So they need to be AIFF at 48k? Does the convert option to AIFF in iTunes satisfy this criteria? I am relatively new to audio formatting and related issues.

  • Audio not exporting from Keynote to Quicktime

    I have recorded a 50 minute slideshow with a voice-over narration in Keynote. There are mp3 sound files on some of the slides, i.e. short clips of various sounds. When I play back the recorded slideshow in Keynote, my voice-over and the sound clips and visuals work perfectly fine. However, when I export my recorded presentation to Quicktime, only my voice-over and the slides are included in the movie, the sounds clips are missing. All of the transitions and effects work perfectly fine in the movie, it is just the sound clips that are missing. No matter how I save the file in Quicktime I cannot get the mp3 sound clips into the QuickTime movie. My computer is a MacbookPro running OSX 10.9.4 Mavericks, using Keynote 6.2. I just bought Quicktime Pro7 to see if that would help, but it did not. Would greatly appreciate advice on how to get all of audio into a movie, I've spent more than a hundred hours on this presentation. Many thanks.

    Yeah, me too. Bump. Can anybody explain this behavior?!?

  • Problems exporting from FCPX

    I can not export from FCPX. Get stuck on 95% and I give up after 45 min. It´s about 15 min fotage that I tried to export in Apple TV3 format.

    I've had this issue weekly with a show I produce.  It bugs me for hours.  In my case, I have to wait until the entire timeline is rendered, and then I have to export it to ProRes 422.  Any other codec requires a re-render, which provokes the problem again.  The problem starts when I take a few clips from my P2 and use the stability function along with any color correction topping them off with titles.  It seems as though part of the rendering process involves re-analyzing the entire clip during rendering, and if I don't allow it to completely render the clips, I get missing video with graphics on top.  I have a 12-core machine with 16GB RAM, and yet it still takes about two hours to render my 30 minute show after I'm done.  This doesn't include the hours it takes to analyze the P2 clips as I import them, which also hinders me during editing and causes continual crashes.  I'm hoping this new update I'm about to run addresses some of those issues.

  • Multi channel audio outputs from a laptop such as 5.1 or 7.1

  • No multi-channel audio from DVD Player or Quicktime?

    I have the A52Codec 1.7.6 installed. The codec preferences are set to output multi-channel audio. I have my Audio MIDI setup speaker configuration setup for multi-channel audio and the speaker assignment tests are all perfect. VLC plays back files with AC-3 soundtracks in perfect 5.1 multi-channel sound. Final Cut plays multi-channel audio properly as well.
    When I watch a DVD, it is decoded to stereo. The dialog on 5.1 always comes from the left and right speakers and never from the center channel. It doesn't matter whether I remove the A52Codec and try again the result is aways the same, 5.1 audio in Quicktime and DVD Payer gets decoded to stereo. It is not that extra channels are missing, if that were true I'd get no dialog at all.
    What do I have to do to make the DVD and Quicktime multi-channel audio decode as multi-channel audio and not stereo.

    I'm not sure if this will resolve your issue or not, but have you configured it using /Utilities/Audi MIDI Setup ?

  • Multi Channel Audio Instrument [Kontakt 2]: Auxes not working?

    Hi,
    I've searched the forums and come up with several posts about using multi-channel audio instruments, but none seems to exactly address the issue I'm seeing (and being confused by). I'm trying to set up Native Instruments' Kontact 2 sampler in multi-channel mode in Logic Pro 7. I perform the following steps:
    1. On an available audio instrument object, I click the input drop-down, select Multi Channel -> AU Instruments -> Native Instruments -> Kontakt 2.
    2. When Kontakt 2 opens, I load, say, three different instruments.
    3. In Kontakt 2's Outpus area, I create three outputs, labelled "st. 1", "st. 2", "st. 3". I cable these to "Plugin Output 1" and "Plugin Output 2" for st.1, "Plugin Output 3" and "Plugin Output 4" for st.2, "Plugin Output 5" and "Plugin Output 6" for st.3.
    4. In Kontakt 2, I assign the output of instrument 1 to st. 1, the output of instrument 2 to st. 2 and the output of instrument 3 to st. 3.
    5. Back in Logic Pro, I create two new (stereo) audio objects and assign them to channels Aux 1 and Aux 2 (and name them accordingly).
    6. In my Aux1 object, I select its input drop-down and choose Instrument1 -> Kontakt2 3 & 4.
    7. In my Aux2 object, I select its input drop-down and choose Instrument1 -> Kontakt2 5 & 6.
    Okay, so basically I'm set up now, right? So to test this out, I set the MIDI receive channel of all of my instruments in Kontakt 2 to omni and click on the built-in keyboard in Kontakt 2. I can see the volume level indicators on all three instruments light up. I can also hear all three instruments coming out of my speakers. However, when I look at the environment page where I've created these objects, I find that they're all coming as a stereo sum from the original audio instrument object. The Aux1 and Aux2 objects are just sitting there doing nothing.
    What gives?
    Dual 1GHz PowerMac G4 (Quicksilver)   Mac OS X (10.3.9)   MOTU 828

    Okay, I found the solution to this, and it's odd enough that I figured that I'd post it just in case anyone else ran into it.
    It turns out that the multi-channel thing does not work at all when you play Kontakt 2 from the built-in keyboard (in K2). Visually, K2 still shows all the audio going out on the corresponding channels, etc., but I guess it's summing it and outputting in stereo only when you do that. If you send it data from Logic, it works just fine. So I had this setup correctly all along.

  • Wanted: Multi-Channel Audio Interface for iMac & GB (USB)

    I am looking for an affordable multi-channel audio interface for my iMac for use with Garageband. My goal is to playback old songs from my old computer (Atari ST) through my Yamaha gear and record the audio into GB so I can mix it. (READ: Not interested in transferring MIDI.)
    My goal is to get at least 4 and ideally 6 channel/track recording in GB. I’m not sure if the multi-channel units I see, such as the Alesis MultiMix 4 or the Behringer Xenyx Q802USB send all channels to the Mac or if they mix it down to two channels first.
    I’d prefer to mix all the channels in GB rather than pre-mix it. Also, I’d prefer to have 1/4” jacks; XLR would be a nice bonus. USB; since Firewire is going away and Thunderbolt is too new.
    Any suggestions? I’m trying to keep this under $100. (Also, I know I can use multiple low-budget devices and aggregate them in Audio/Midi, but I do NOT want to go that route.)
    Thanks.

    As you imply, keeping it below $100 makes it tough.
    Generally only the two channel interfaces are close to $100.

  • Can PCM multi-channel wav (not DD or DTS) be sent over SPDIF

    <Can PCM multi-channel wav (not DD or DTS) be sent over SPDIF? --- X-Fi Elite Pro SB055A and Audio Creation Mode ---
    If I understand correctly, SPDIF format can support uncompressed MULTICHANNEL wav format (within the limitations of its bandwidth) as well as the more usual DD or DTS encoded format on SPDIF.
    One of the neat things about Creative's Audio Creation Mode in the Recorder section is the ability to actually record to a multi-wav format (but the sample size seems to be fixed at 24 bit). This means it is quite simple to have several mixer inputs and record a mixed multi-channel wav file in one go. Great and this works as expected with a 5. ?24 bit/48 kHz recorded test file.
    My question is when one plays this recorded multi-channel wav file back, the mixer monitor (playback) shows the various 5. (say) channels with their separate content. Can this multi-channel *uncompressed* wav data? be sent over the SPDIF output as is to preserve the PCM quality? (so no DD or DTS encoding used)? I have tried this and I?ONLY seem to be able to get a STEREO (2 channel mixed down) version received at another SPDIF-in sound card (my Audigy 2ZS PCMCIA). I tried almost all selections at both ends involving SPDIF.

    @? In answer to my own question, and I think I had known this a while back, SPDIF standard only supports transmission of either 2 channel PCM (uncompressed) stereo with up to 24 bit resolution per channel and up to as much as 92 kHz sampling frequency, or compressed (DD or DTS) multichannel audio up to 5..
    Since each frame of SPDF is 64 bits in length (with a single sample of L and R channels plus extra bits of status in each frame), at 92 kHz max sampling rate, this translates to about 3 Mbits/sec bit rate. However most SPDF don't support the 92 kHz rate (which for 24 bit would be the stereo rate for DVD-Audio) for various copyright protection reasons.
    Here is short demonstration of SPDIF transmission of 24bit/96 kHz between two sound cards with and without "bit accurate for playback" enabled:

  • AAC and multi-channel audio

    Can AAC be used to encode multi-channel audio, such as DTS-HD Master Audio?
    DTS-HD Master Audio is an optional audio format in Blu-Ray. It uses lossless compression.
    There are other audio formats from Dolby Digital, for example, that are used to encode HD audio in Blu-Ray. Can AAC be used to encode those as well, without any loss of information?
    Is there any work in progress to make HD audio such as DTS-HD Master Audio available discretely on disc, like what the older DVD-Audio format made possible for 5.1 channel surround sound on disc?
    Thanks.

    What adjustments do you want to make?

  • Multi channel audio output

    i am trying to output a wav file from a avi file.
    this file has multi channel audio, in this case 4 channels, though when outputting the audio by
    After Effets, mono or stereo is the only available choice.
    In this case, which channel will be extracted from the avi file?

    I'm 99% sure that only the first 2 channels will be imported. I've seen some weirdness where multichannel audio has been bounced to a stereo pair on import causing a jump in levels. Your best bet is to use Soundbooth (or Premiere) or an audio/editing app to do the conversion.

  • Multi Channel Audio Setup

    I've been trying to follow various tutorials for setting up multi channel audio insruments and I always get stuck at the point where you select Output 3-4, 5-6 etc. from the Aux 1, 2. 3 etc. objects. I never have more than Output 1-2 to choose from. I usually use the built- in audio or sometimes a Lexicon Omega. Do I need another interface to accomplish this or am I doing something wrong. I've accomplished quite a lot of things with Logic, but this has been hanging me up for a year now. Any thoughts?

    multi channel audio instrument doesn't require a special card or interface
    any interface with stereo output should work
    you need to make sure your audio instrument supports multi channel
    logic pro only has Ultrabeat and EXS24 as multi channel
    under the plug-ins choose multi channel instead of stereo or mono then choose what ever is under multi channel
    example BFD, RMX, KORG LEGACY and other 3rd parties that support Multi

  • This is a very simple question about multi-channel audio playback

    I have an mp4 file that i made and i made it 7.1 surround sound, and i'm pretty sure that this 7.1 surround sound works, as it can be played in VLC. i'm using netstream to load my files now. How do i make it so that flash can playback all 8-channels of sound? I suppose kglad would know the answer

    Flash doesn't support multi-channel audio (yet?)
