Export mixdown of several stereo tracks as one mono track

How can I select a few stereo tracks in STP and export them as a single mono track? either back to FCP or as a standalone file?
Thanks!

Oops, i posted this in the wrong discussion group. can this be moved to STP?

On the Channels Strip (of the Audio Track with the Audio Region), ctr+click on the left segment of the Input Button. That opens a popup menu where you can select Left (only the left channel of the Audio Region is played as mono), or Right (only the right channel of the Audio Region is played as mono).
Once the signal flow of the Channel Strip is mono (one channel), you can use the "Mono➤Stereo" version of some plugins to convert the Channel Strip to a stereo channel.
About your second question. If you are referring to the little blue "Catch Playhead Button", that automatically scrolls the Workspace when the Playhead reaches the right border to keep the Workspace visible. You also can also enable  the "Scroll in Play" mode in the local View Menu. That one locks the Playhead in the center and scroll the Workspace "underneath"
However if you are referring to that little Play icon in the left upper corner of the Region Header (only visible in the Editor), that one, the "Solo Play Button", only plays that Region in solo mode. It is basically a combination of "Play " and "Solo" in on button. You can find all those little informations and much more in my graphically enhanced manual "Logic Pro X - How it Works".
Hope that helps

  • Importing Stereo File to Two Mono Tracks?

    I have a stereo audio file. I'd like to put it into GB2 with one side of the stereo file as one mono track and the second side of the stereo file as a second mono track.
    Is there any way to do this?
    Thanks,
    Leon

    Leon, Here is a file explaining what Monomaker does.
    Monomaker is a simple mono-merging and stereo-recentering utility plugin.
    You can use the mono merge parameter to progressively merge your stereo audio channels into a single mono signal. Turning mono merge all the way up to 1 will make your sound completely mono. Turning mono merge all the way down to 0 will leave your audio unaffected.
    You can then recenter your signal using the pan parameter. The panning is equal power (meaning that as you move further over to one channel, sound from the other channel is copied over to the first channel in order to keep the total volume consistent).
    Also, in case it's useful, you can re-route the 2 input streams in a variety of ways by using the input selection parameter. "Left-right" means that everything is normal, "right-left" means that the left and right streams are swapped, "left-left" means that you lose the right stream and get the left stream copied to both inputs, and "right-right" means that you lose the left stream and get the right stream copied to both inputs.
    Monomaker's signal path is input selection first, then mono merge, then pan.
    I have just downloaded it myself and have not looked at it yet. I apologize in advance for not checking it first before posting it. It may or may not help you, and I do not know if it works in Garageband.
    Here is the site I got it from

  • Stereo audio tracks missing - have mono track only

    After recently downloading DV footage, I find that there is only a "mono" channel shown on the timeline. Several subsequent "test" takes and downloads continue to produce only the mono channel. Imported "aiff" files appear in timeline with stereo tracks, but material from my DV camera continues to only contain a single mono track. (All settings on camera have been checked and re-checked and appear OK)
    Is there some setting in FCE HD that needs to be re-set? If so, where is it??
    Any input/advice will be appreciated.

    "Mayday, Mayday" ! I've had my camcorder bench-checked for the stereo audio signals (it's operating fine), replaced the firewire cable between the camcorder and the iMac, and reloaded FCE HD. Test clips still show only a "mono" channel for audio - no stereo audio. Test clips made with a different camcorder produced the same results (mono channel only)
    After downloading yet another test clip, the FCE HD software responds with the following message:
    "The audio sample rate of one or more of your captured media files does not match the sample rate on your source tape. This may cause the video and audio of these media files to be out of sync. Make sure the audio sample rate of your capture preset matches the sample rate of your tape"
    Is this why I am only seeing one (mono) audio channel ? Can anyone tell me what this means and how I should fix it ?

  • Replacing stereo mix with original mono tracks in edited program

    Hi there,
    I've edited a 2 minute program with the stereo mixdown of 6 lapel mics on 6 different speakers. I'm now finishing the project and am wanting to isolate each speaker's audio, but can't seem to figure out how to do this.  Using the Replace edit function loses my ins and outs.
    Please help!
    Thanks in advance.
    Pete

    You may enjoy the new Source ch mapping in CS3.
    IF you clip is stereo with one voice in the lft and another voice in the right ch, BEFORE importing it change you preferences thusly:
    Edit > Preferences > Audio Set Source CH mapping to Mono.
    Import your clip.
    Drag it to the timeline and you will see it will be two linked mono tracks.
    That is a global method.
    To do an individual audio clip:
    Import it and before you put it on the timeline; select it in the bin and choose Clip > Audio Options > Source Ch Mapping and set it to Mono. This will accomplish the same thing, except for a single clip.
    Re your 2nd question; If you do the above you can use the audio mixer to mix the voices.
    I often shoot with a wireless in 1 ch and a shotgun in the other. So these options are quite handy.

  • Create 2 stereo tracks from 2 mono tracks

    If I send a FCP sequence to a STP mulitrack project it opens with a left channel (A) as the on camera mic and the right channel (B) as the wireless mic. Since I want both to come through both channels I assume I should make the edits/corrections on both, then insert 2 new blank tracks. I'll then copy/paste each of the previously mono tracks so I have 2 stereo track, right and left A and right and left B. Does this sound correct or am I missing something here?

    No. One work around would be to create a stereo sub mix channel, this would at least give you a single fader but it won't help you when editing. You could try grouping the video and two audio, then they should be easier to select.

  • Best Way To Add Stereo Plugin To 2 Mono Tracks

    i have acoustic guitar on track 1 and 2 . panned left & right.
    i want to put 1 stereo uad neve comp on guitars. but not from a bus because i don't want to deal with pdc. so i want to add it to the track. i know i can bounce but want to avoid a bounce. so how would i add 1 stereo uad plug to a track but have both mono signals go through it.
    thanks

    Check it out...
    If you normally work with Universal Track Mode "On", turn it "off" while you track vocals.
    Audio menu>Audio Hardware & Drivers>Universal Track Mode
    Make track one a stereo track, by clicking on the circle at the bottom of it's channel. This will cause track two's channel to become blank... because it is now being controlled by track one.
    If you put a UAD stereo compressor on track one, it will be compressing both tracks one and two.
    The downside of this, is depending in how much elaborate routing you have in your autoload, or current song, UTM set to off might cause some problems, but if you have a pretty simple set up, it should work without a hitch.

  • How to merge different comp track into one comp track?

    Hi
    I use logic studio 9
    I have recorded two different comp tracks for lead singing of project
    And now I have two different tracks with a lot of takes to choose from in each one of them
    I would like to merge the two into one comp track with all the takes so it will be easier to edit
    Is there any way to do that?
    By the way, there is no reason why I made 2 tracks for the same singing part. Now it seems to be a mistake...
    Thank you very much

    Hi
    Basically, you need to unpack one (or both) sets of Take Folders, and then merge the two together:
    Working on the basic assumption (for discussion purposes) that you have two tracks, each with Take Folders on them.
    Method 1:
    Select each Take Folder on track 2 and click-hold on the arrow top right of the folder. Choose Upack to new tracks. Carefully select the new regions and drag/drop them onto the Take Folders on Track 1.
    Method 2
    Unpack ALL Take  folders on both tracks, Select all the regions and use the Region:Folder:Pack Take Folder function to re-pack into a new Take.

  • Stereo Track Showing as Mono Track in Edit View

    Yup...
    Go to View>Waveform Channels and take the check out of 'Layered'...
    Incidentally, the clue was that you have both channels displayed at the top of the screen - Layering is the only thing that will superimpose them.

  • How to make dual mono output from one mono track

    Please forgive my complete ignorance of music mixing/sound board terminology: I'm only using Logic Pro X because Apple deliberately made it impossible to use Soundtrack Pro as part of a roundtrip with FCPx. Soundtrack Pro is what I've always used for editing audio for video.
    I recorded two tracks with the video: microphone on the right and and lavalier on the left. The mic was just a backup and the lav track is what I want to use.  I imported the audio into LPx and now I want to use only the left channel but I want it to output equally on both channels. I've searched all over for a simple explaination (at least one who is not a music editor can understand) and haven't found one.
    How can I do this? Thanks.
    Second question: I found the little icon that lets makes the timeline scroll to follow the playhead (ridiculous that FCPx doesn't have this) but I can only make it work for one clip at at time. Is there a way to turn it on permanently?

    On the Channels Strip (of the Audio Track with the Audio Region), ctr+click on the left segment of the Input Button. That opens a popup menu where you can select Left (only the left channel of the Audio Region is played as mono), or Right (only the right channel of the Audio Region is played as mono).

  • How to separate/split different drum tracks from one recorded track

    Hi,
    Pretty hard to explain my intentions in the title, but i've recorded drums with one mic (so there's only one track), and i was wondering whether or not it's possible to separate the hi-hat, snare, toms, etc. from each other? So basically i want to create separate tracks for each of these sounds. I know it's a tricky and pretty specific question, but this would really come in handy since you can replace the drum sounds.
    The biggest problem, if this were possible, is to separate tones that are recorded at the same time.
    And yes, i tried the manual, but i couldn't figure this one out.
    Thank you very much

    You are right: This is impossible.
    The next best thing is to use Flex Time to find the attack transients and then split the audio at those transients, so you can move the individual snippets to different tracks.

  • Making multiple tracks from one big track

    I've got a CD that has 7 songs on it, but only shows as 1 long track (54:06) when I try to import it. I'd like to edit it so it imports/plays as 7 songs and not 1. I've figured out how to mark/edit the first song, but that's all. How can I reimport the original song so that I can do the other 6 tracks? I've looked at a lot similiar postings, but there were no answers. Apparently this is a problem a lot of people are having. Any suggestions would help. Thanks.

    As i mentioned earlier, by selecting to convert the original song it is just making a copy of the song, and you do not have to have the CD to do so. Just select the song you want to duplicate and then select convert to...(whatever file format you want).
    Hope this helps

  • Making two mono tracks from one stereo track?

    I've used the M-Audio MobilePre USB device to record  vocal and guitar at the same time. In GarageBand, this inputs as one track, with guitar on the left channel and vocal on the right.
    I'd like to separate this one stereo track into two mono tracks for further mixing and editing.
    Any ideas on how to do this?
    Thanks!

  • Stereo to individual mono tracks?

    GB doesn't seem to be able to split out a stereo sound file to left only mono and right only mono. I've gotten around this issue by creating a copy of the file and panning one track left and the other right. Selecting Mono channel 1 or 2 input in Info just merges the both tracks together into one mono track (for some reason), panning just sends the combined signal to the L or R. This solution is fine while editing in GB, but is bad for the final output where not only would I like to preview the combined audio tracks to set levels, but also export them so that the left channel material is on both tracks of the final stereo file. Here's what I'm dealing with so there is no confusion. I am e-mailed a stereo file with vocals on L and temp music on R. I replace the temp music with several new options. Then I want to export the new mixes back to a stereo file with vocals centered to send for previews. GB does not seem to provide e with a way to do that. In other words, there does not seem to be any way to get the L channel of a stereo file to the center of a new stereo mix without also combining it with the old unwanted R channel material. I'd love to find a way. One solution would be to flip the L/R orientation of the copied track and play the vocals back panned respectively on two tracks, but that's also something that seems beyond GB's capabilities. So there's a new one ... how to flip the stereo field of a track, which would be an easy fix to this problem ... I'll post on a separate thread.

    One way to do it would be to
    1) pan the stereo track full left, and export.
    2) set iTunes' prefs to convert to a MONO AIFF file, do the conversion
    3) drag the new file into GB.

  • Stereo to 2 mono tracks conversion problem

    The problem I'm running into is that once i've split the stereo track into 2 mono tracks, and bring the one mono track back into logic express to use, it still recognizes plays as though it's a stereo track.
    The stereo track that i'm using basically has the music on the left side and a metronome on the right side so we can use it for backtracks through an ipod in a live setting.
    I've also ran into a similar problem after i edited some audio tracks I was using in a sample, after i edited it and brought it back into the proram, it didn't want to recognize the origional track that i had...
    has anyone else ran into this or knows what i'm doing wrong?

    Is this possible in iMovie 9?
    Yes, it is.
    In iMovie choose Share>Export to QuckTime. Choose Export: Sound to AIFF then click the Options button.
    From the Channels dropdown menu select Mono. Click OK and then save the file to the Desktop.
    Detach and delete the original Project and drag in the newly created file and place it on the video in the timeline so it imports as a connected clip and not just in the background.
