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).
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

  • How to create a mono output from a mono aux send?

    Trying to create a mono output from a mono aux send but option available is only a stereo output. Any way to force a mono output?

    Yes - I'm aware of the mono vs stereo. Let me outline more precisely what I'm attempting to do. (By the way, I know this can be done as I do it easily in MOTU's Digital Performer.) The desire is to create a mono send inside Logic that I can then send out through my MOTU interface into a Lex 300 reverb unit. I then take the analog outputs from the Lex 300 and bring them back into Logic. I want the send to be mono as I am mostly sending from mono recorded instruments and voices. So chain would look like this:
    Track 1
    Send Bus 8
    _Bus 8 Mono output_
    MOTU 2408 Input
    Patch Bay cable
    Lex 300 Mono input ///
    (now coming out)
    Lex 300 Stereo Out
    patch bay
    MOTU Stereo Inputs 15/16
    Logic Stereo Input 15/16
    Mix.
    The problem with the chain is that I cannot select a _mono output_ - it only allows for a stereo output. I can pan it one way or the other but it still does not seem to function correctly and toggling the mono/stereo button does not change the fact that this is still a stereo output. I hope this does not make it more complicated - it seems like there should be a simple solution. Any ideas? Thanks.

  • How to make a JDialog scrolling from one position to the other.

    Hi all,
    I want to move a JDialog from one position to the other(actually I want to scrolling/moving as messenger notification appear on top of the system tray) on the desktop.
    Anyone of you can give me a clue.
    Thanks

    Ok here what I have try up to now. First make the initial position of the JFrame as follows.
        private void SetWindowLocation()
            final int screenHeight = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize().height;
            final int screenWidth = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize().width;
            final int frameHeight = this.getHeight();
            final int frameWidth = this.getWidth();
            int _y = (screenHeight - frameHeight - 32);
            int _x = (screenWidth - frameWidth);
    // Initial location
            this.setLocation(_x, _y); 
    }This code place my Frame in the lower-right corner on top of the system-tray.
    Then as you guys says, try to work on a Timer. Now I'm stuck with the action listener. I try to move the frame to upper-right corner.
        private void SetWindowLocation()
            final int screenHeight = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize().height;
            final int screenWidth = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize().width;
            final int frameHeight = this.getHeight();
            final int frameWidth = this.getWidth();
            int _y = (screenHeight - frameHeight - 32);
            int _x = (screenWidth - frameWidth);
    // Initial location
            this.setLocation(_x, _y); 
            _timer = new javax.swing.Timer(100, incrementYPosition);
    ActionListener incrementYPosition = new ActionListener() {
            public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent evt) {
                       while(_y > 0){
                            // do the processing here.
                            // reduce the _y value and set the new location with _x
                    };I'm stuck with that how to involve with the ActionListener here. :(:( After set the initial location how to deal with the ActionListener.
    Any help.

  • How to make different print jobs from one PC

    Bothe print 1 and 2 is PDF file.Print 1 is for invoices - print 2 is for labels
    Is that posibel with Adobe?

    Hi and welcome to the RoboHelp forums. You may be better placed to ask this question on the Acrobat forums as I expect knowledge about printing PDFs would be limited here. However I suspect that you'll need to set-up different Print Options inside Acrobat to do what you want. This is not my area of expertise though.

  • Howto make created folders/ files from one teacher, read only for other teachers?

    Hello there,
    as an admin @ school I was wondering how to make created folders/ files from one teacher, read only for other teachers?
     - In a 2008domain, created a group "teachers"
     - created a folder "teacher data" where all teachers have read/write permissions
    ideal,a teacher who make's a folder in "teacher data" should be the only oen who is able to add file's to that folder and dele that folder or files. Other teachers may be able to read the content of the folder.
    Is this possible to set up and how?
    many thanks.
    Nico.
    rds

    Hi Nico,
    You could set the permissions below to resolve the issue:
    For the root folder "teacher data": give the full control permission to CREATOR OWNER – "Subfolders and files only" and give the read/write permissions to the group "teachers"– "This folder only".

    If your computer is on one minute before it freezes, than you have one minute to secure your serial number.
    click the apple----->click about this Mac ------> click on version----> until you see the serial number.  You may have to do this a couple of times if it freezes before you have all the numbers.  A camera might help.
    Good Luck

  • How we can get the values  from one screen to another screen?

    hi guru's.
         how we can get the values  from one screen to another screen?
              we get values where cusor is placed but in my requirement i want to get to field values from one screen to another screen.
    regards.
      satheesh.

    Just think of dynpros as windows into the global memory of your program... so if you want the value of a field on dynpro 1234 to appear on dynpro 2345, then just pop the value into a global variable (i.e. one defined in your top include), and you will be able to see it in your second dynpro (assuming you make the field formats etc the same on both screens!).

  • How do I move imove content from one user to another on the same computer?

    We bought our Macbook pro about six months ago. We made the mistake of creating two users for it (my husband and myslef) but bow we only log in under my user name. The problem is we originally imported all of our video camera content to his "log in" and now it is in his imovie folder, and not mine. I want to make a movie on my log in with the fottage that we imported to his. So, how do I get video content from one users login on the SAME computer to the other log in users? I cannot seem to move it for the life of me. I did not expect this to be so difficult.

    Hi,
    You need to log into his account and look, under the Movies folder, for iMovie Events. Inside, you'll find folders with the events names and still further will be the movie itself. Copy each to an external media or use the Shared folder so both accounts can reference them.
    Another option would be to attach an external HD and via iMovie (Events Library pane) move them to the new disk. You would preserve the thumbnails and analysis already performed on the videos.
    Good luck!

  • Hi I have 2 apple id's one which has pulled through everything except my calendars and one which has pulled through just my calendars. How do I move my calendars from one apple id to another?

    Hi I have 2 apple id's one which has pulled through everything into icloud except my calendars and one which has pulled through just my calendars. How do I move my calendars from one apple id to another so that I can see everything in icloud with one apple id?

    Having read some other posts I think I have answered my question. If I was somehow able to terminate my old (unwanted) account and Apple ID I would no longer be able to access the material I bought with that ID-  so I'm stuck. I have to learn how to manage that situation.
    This is unfortunate for Apple consumers. Life is complicated for families these days and this "rule" although it is in place to prevent cheating and fraud makes things unnnecessarily difficult for me and my family as in my niaevity (sic) with the online world I bumbled into this situation. Not everyone is out to rip off Apple - one of the worlds richest corporations- or the entertainers who market their work through iTunes.I would just like to be able to enjoy the entertainment I pay for where and when I like to on whichever computer is available to me. And I'm not terribly computer literate.   
    It would have been nice to have had the opportunity to speak just once to a real person in the employ of Apple to explain my situation to them.

  • How do I move a file from one catalog to aanother?

    How do I move a file from one catalog to another?

    The ambiguity in your first question was that you didn't state which product you were on about - Photoshop?, Lightroom? Bridge? Elements? and which version of these? As I said you clarified this in your second question. I did say that I felt that you have a hidden agenda because you escalated in to insults about Adobe within 5 minutes or so of your first question. It appeared to me that what you were wanting to do right from the outset was to vent your anger at Adobe. That wasn't stated directly in any of your posts hence my opinion that you had a hidden agenda.
    As Silk rooster said we are not employees of Adobe just users of their products (look for the word staff next to a users name to identify if they are a forum member or a member of staff).
    Incidentally before you correct my spelling (ambig(e)uous) make sure that your own post is free from spelling and or grammatical errors. I am dyslexic and therefore rely on spellcheckers, which aren't always perfect, but hey - thanks for pointing out my shortcomings.
    Cheers

  • I have a seagate 1tb hard drive and a 16gb memory stick, how do i transfer avi files from one to another as the click drag and drop wont work, please help?

    i have a seagate 1tb hard drive and a 16gb memory stick, how do i transfer avi files from one to another as the click drag and drop wont work, please help?

    Greetings,
    What happens when you drag it?
    Make sure the drive you are moving the files to has enough available space to receive the file:
    Click on the movie file and go to File >  Get Info and note the "size"
    Check the drive to which you are moving the file to make sure it has enough available space: https://idisk.me.com/madisonfile-Public/web/finder-drive-available-space-and-for mat.html
    Also note the format of the drive you are copying too.  If it is not Mac OS Extended or FAT (not recommended unless you are taking it to a windows computer) then that may be the issue.
    Hope that helps.

  • How to make manager approve more than one request in one time in SSHR

    Dear All,
    Anyone has an idea on how to make manager approver more than one request in one time in SSHR??
    for example, manager is having 20 requests to approve on Change Pay Function, he don't want to check one by one and approve it, he want to approve the 20 requests directly from one time, is there any solution for that??
    Thanks and Regards

    Hi Adel,
    As Vignesh has mentioned we don't have any standard functionality which will allow bulk approvals. We had same kind of requirement in performance management where the business was asking for a bulk approval feature which should be available to Skip level manager for approving the rating suggested by line manager. We had created a custom page which will list all the notifications and user can select the ones which S/He wants to bulk approve and click submit button. Internally we had called the workflow with item key and other required parameter and do the approval.
    You can have a work with your technical guy and can work on the same lines.
    Thanks,
    Sanjay
