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?

  • Mixing Four Tracks To One Stereo Track

    In Logic 7.2.3,if I have recorded four backing vocal tracks, all doubled up, and I want them panned across the track, from left to right, is there a way that I can submix them to one stereo track, still keeping their pan positions, so I can apply processing to all of them together.
    I tried doing this via a buss to aux track, but it only picked up one side of the stereo spectrum, which is no good.
    I remember this was easy to do in Ableton Live, as you could directly output from one track to another track, but I cannot find this option in Logic.

    Send them to a bus. Buses are stereo in Logic and you can apply the same effects to the bus that you can to any track. The output from the bus is normally the main ouput (though you can change it) so it gets back into the mix.
    Perhaps the easiest way is to route the I/O of the selected tracks not to Output 1/2 but to Bus 1 and do that for all your backing tracks.
    Another way is to click on the Send button on the vocals track and route to Bus 1. Then ramp up the send pot, but check your levels since you are now sending both the original track and the bus to your output. If you don't want the originals to go into the mix, set the tracks to no output or use the first method I mentioned.
    You'll probably want Bus 1 in your arrange window. To get it, open the track mixer, click on Global (to display all the objects in your system), scroll to to the extreme right and double click on the label Bus 1.
    Hope that helps!

  • 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

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

    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.

  • How can I extract the two channels from a stereo track?

    I am writing a class that is able to draw an audio signal. It seems to be working well but I have a question. If I load a mono audio file I am able to draw it on a graph by using the byte[] array and everything is ok until now. That's the code:
    void Draw(byte[] x)
                Graphics g=getGraphics();
                Graphics2D g2=(Graphics2D)g;
                g2.setRenderingHint(RenderingHints.KEY_ANTIALIASING,                     RenderingHints.VALUE_ANTIALIAS_ON);
                for(int i=0; i<x.length-6; i++)
                    g2.draw(new Line2D.Float(((i*(getWidth()-6))/x.length)+5, (getHeight()/2)-          ((x*(getWidth()-6))/x.length), (((i+1)*(getWidth()-6))/x.length)+5, (getHeight()/2)-     ((x[i+1]*(getWidth()-6))/x.length)));
    The results is correct only if I have a mono track. Obviously when I get a stereo track the array becomes very large so here the question. How can I extract the two audio channels from a stereo track?
    Thanks in advance.

    A mono audio stream is stored [sample, sample, sample, sample], so just a list of samples in an array.
    A stereo sample is interleaved in the same manner, so you get [left-sample, right-sample, left-sample, right-sample]
    So every nth sample is the 1st channel, every nth+1 is the 2nd channel...

  • Merge two mono files to one stero file

    i want to make two mono tracks into one stereo track where one is the left part of the the stereo track and the other the right part...i thought i had done that a long time ago...if possible, how do i do that?

    Split Stereo files can be converted to Interleaved files. Do that in the Audio window (Copy/convert file).

  • Convert two mono tracks into one stereo?

    I've imported a clip from my DV camera into Final Cut. For whatever reason, the clip audio is two mono tracks rather than one stereo track. Is there a way for me to convert this to a stereo track after the import?
    Thanks very much,
    G5 Dual 2.5 GHz   Mac OS X (10.4.6)  

    Select both clips in the Timeline, then go to Modify->Stereo Pair (Option L). But if both clips contain the same audio information, it won't really be stereo ... just two tracks panned left & right.
    If you want the audio to come in as stereo when you capture next time, make sure that you have the Capture settings for the audio set to "stereo."


    Does anyone know if this is possible: How to SPLIT ONE STEREO TRACK'S L & R CHANNELS INTO TWO MONO CHANNELS?  There's got to be a way, but I just can't find out how.
    I recorded a podcast -- me and a guest, with each mic going to its own mono channel. When I opened it in Audition it mixed them into one stereo channel. 
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    You're a big help! Thanks very much.  Simple yet I must be going blind because I didn't see that in the menu.
    Take care and THANKS AGAIN.

  • Export MXF Op1a XDCAMHD with one stereo track?!

    I need a MXF Op1a XDCAMHD with only one stereo track as a master file.
    If i choose "stereo" in the export settings I always get two mono files.
    I know, that it is not a standart in a MXF with XDCAM to use stereo, but
    I know that there are some broadcaster out there who use such a file as master file.
    Does anyone know how to create it? That would be very helpful.

    That's right I checked the file in the VLC Player.
    I exported an MXF IMX30 file and it worked with stereo file, in VLC as well!
    I send the "stereo" MFX XDCAM to a broadcaster and he said it is not a MXF with a stereo track. So the same like I recognized after my export.
    So it seems to be possible to export MXF's with stereo files, but not in XDCAM.
    Does anyone use it? Or has a similar problem / workflow?!

  • How can i move a podcast track from one podcast to another?

    I subscribe to a number of podcasts and  recenly some of them have started downloading to new podcast folders (One of them underwent a slight name change, and the others I'm not sure why). So now, some of my podcasts have two folders: one with the old podcasts and one where the new podcast download to. I want to keep all the tracks, because I reference them from time to time, but I hate having these extra folders. Is there some way to move podcast tracks from one podcast to another so I can consolidate these tracks?

    Use export/import.

  • Move tracks from one project to another?

    I'd like to know if there's a way to move tracks (with or without inserts, automation and other stuff) from one project to another.
    I have a project containing a working mix of a song that I've spent many hours assembling. One of my bandmates sent me parts he tracked in GarageBand, two audio tracks and one track using a MIDI instrument. I imported the GB file into LE and made some edits. I'd like to bring those three tracks into my current mix.
    I understand that I can bounce each track out individually, then re-import them on new tracks in the mix project, but this means turning off all the inserts and EQ on each track and blah blah blah, it seems like there must be an easier way. Being able to directly move or import the tracks would preserve my editing flexibility in a way that bounces won't.
    Please, any suggestions may prove valuable.
    Thank you for your time.

    ...let me also re-emphasize: the GB2 file was imported and converted and tossed. I am trying to move tracks from one Logic Express project to another Logic Express project.
    Just to be perfectly clear.

  • How to create MS (Mid Side) tracks from a stereo file

    Hi everyone.
    Can anyone tell me how to create MS tracks from a stereo file?
    I used to do it on old analogue desks but can't figure how to it in logic.
    Would appreciate assistance.

    Hi guys. Here's what I'm really trying to do...It's to do with digital - DAB - radio.
    I've noticed on DAB radio that certain songs exhibit weird and severe loss of stereo image. e.g.
    When listening to "Riders on the Storm" by the Doors the keyboard solo goes missing. Totally vanished, bar a weak reverb remnant.
    When I first heard this problem it reminded me instantly of an experiment I made with MS encoding on an analogue desk with that very track some years ago: which I mentioned in my first thread.
    I'm not attempting to use MS here for a positive purpose. Quite the reverse! It is the INCONPATIBILTY that I am after.
    DAB is broadcasted in the UK using MP2 encoding, which divides the spectrum into 750Hz portions. That makes 13 portions, roughly, if you divide 750 into 10000. I've just set up 13 versions of Riders on the Storm and have bandwidth limited each accordingly: 20 Hz-770 Hz, 770 Hz-1520 Hz, 1520 Hz-2270 Hz etc.. Low and behold, weird things are already starting to happen to the stereo image. Jim Morrison's vocal exihibits a 1.5 second time delay (i.e. loss of reverb intergity, reverb transformed into a discrete one beat time delay) when all thirteen tracks are played together. Now I'm going to try MS encoding this to replicate the way DAB would send these chunks across the airwaves.
    If you've got time, try it too! And please give me some more tips on how to create MS from stereo files.

  • Copying an entire software instrument track from one project to another

    Is it possible to copy or import one entire software instrument track from one GB 3.0.2 project to another? At the moment I've got to copy a region from one project, open another project, paste it in the 2nd project, and open the other one again (which appears to close the 2nd project) to copy the second region. This is incredibly cumbersome because I can't have both projects open at the same time.
    Has anyone found a less tiresome method to do this?
    Powerbook 15" Hi Res 1.67 GHz 2 Gb RAM   Mac OS X (10.4.6)  

    The easiest work-around I can imagine is to join all regions of the track and copy that. Another option is to freeze the track, which will turn it into normal audio. You might also add your MIDI parts to the library. That will avoid the need to switch between projects, but does require one or two more actions.

  • How to make 48 mono tracks into 24 stereo tracks

    When I opened a Final Cut Pro project in Audition 5.5 the Final Cut Pro project had 24 stereo pairs.  The Audition project has 48 mono tracks.  How do I convert every pair of mono tracks into a stereo track?

    The FinalCut XML format that is used to send this only accomodates mono clips on mono tracks (just like FinalCut itself). If it supported Stereo clips on Stereo tracks like most DAWs or PremierePro, then it wouldn't really be an issue.
    That being said, the linking between two adjacent clips in a stereo pairs in FinalCut doesn't transfer over because this version of Audition CS5.5 doesn't have the ability to group clips.   If the source audio files are originally stereo, you could save the session as a SESX, and then perhaps make a script to modify the XML to change all the tracks to stereo, and find and combine 2 mono clips referencing a stereo file, and just make a single stereo clip.  I'm not sure if that explanation helps (or even makes sense).
    Perhaps you could post the session, and I could give more direct advice.

  • Moving Tracks From One Session To Another

    I have a two DVD project that has one session for each. I wanted to know if there is a way to take a menu and track from one session to the other without having to build the track and menu buttons again. Somewhat like importing session data in pro tools if that helps. Thanks.

    You can export the descriptions of the items then import them into the project you would like to bring them into. May have to relink items, but alot of it will be bought it.
