Stereo Track Showing as Mono Track in Edit View

I know this is probably something ridiculously simple :-)...but, I CANNOT figure out why a stereo track I'm working with is looking like a mono track in edit view.
What am I missing?

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.

  • 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?

    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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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 ?

  • 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?
    Processor  2 x 2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
    Memory  32 GB 800 MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM
    Graphics  NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT 512 MB
    Software  Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4 (11E53)
    Final Cut Studio 7
    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

  • 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.

    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.

  • Splitting stereo tracks to mono for separate editing?

    Does anyone know of a way to split a stereo track into two mono tracks inside of Logic Pro 8?
    I'll explain my problem, I have a track made from samples of a song. In the track that I recorded, there is one particular sound that I can't get rid of no matter how hard I try. I recorded the passage with the ESX24 in stereo and I noticed that the noise is only on the left track. My first solution was to pan the track all the way right, create a duplicate of that and pan it hard left. Unfortunately, it loses a lot of clarity and texture when I use this method..
    Looking on the forums, all I could find was instructions to bounce the tracks to split stereo, but I need them to form separate tracks within Logic so I can apply a LowPass filter to the problematic left track, then mix them back together as one stereo track later....
    Any suggestions?

    You guys are talking about different things. The OP says he's using an exs24 instrument with a sample that has a noise on one side of the stereo field of a SAMPLE not an audio region recorded into logic. Samples used by the EXS24 are not added to the audio bin, only into the EXS24's RAM. You could pan the instrument track to the side without the noise, and then output the result to a bus track that is set to MONO. That will pan your one sided sampler back to center. You can also bring the sample into logic (using the browser) and then split it as eriksimon suggested, and then create a new EXS24 instrument using only the good side of the sample.

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 2 Mono tracks instead of 1 stereo?

    Is there a way to break out a stereo track into 2 mono tracks? Namely I want to import a split-track and then be able to mix it how I want.
    --Daniel L

    That is the same thing Karl. I know how to split files in Audacity and Wavepad. Seems like you should be able to separate the stereo tracks in Garageband and skip the export.
    Ohh and for both of you, I NEVER export to iTunes. It really puts a dent in my work flow and junks up itunes. Id have thousands of things more in my iTunes account if I exported everything to it... I mix for others not myself
    Soo yeah seems like GB is lacking in that department, but I still prefer it over Adobe Audition.

  • Stereo -- two mono tracks

    I had a question about importing a stereo track. I'm in a stereo multitrack right now, and open a stereo track in that, but 
    I'm still not sure how to split the stereo track into two mono tracks.
    Right now it's just playing on the Left side of the headphone. How do I get it so that there are two tracks - one on top of the other?
    Thank you for bearing with my training wheels here!

    I'm not sure why you want to do this. If you put a stereo track into a stereo session, then it will play in stereo. If you want to alter the relative left and right levels of the track, you use the Pan control in the mixer. If you can't hear both channels, then you need to check the mixer's master output options (where it says Default output at the top) and make sure that you have a stereo option selected - if you don't have this selected properly, you'll definitely only hear one channel.

  • Stereo audio export showing as mono

    I've been encountering an issue with exporting stereo audio from Premiere CS6 (v. 6.0.5) and After Effects CS6 ( When I export a clip with stereo audio from Premiere or After Effects (usually to ProRes or Uncompressed QuickTime), the resulting file will show as having dual-mono audio in FCP7. When I check the file in QuickTime 7, QuickTime 10, MediaInfo, Premiere, After Effects etc., the audio is tagged as stereo. But when I bring the clip into FCP7, the audio shows as two separate mono tracks.
    While this isn't a problem if I stay within Premiere/After Effects, it does become an issue when I need to work with the clips in FCP7 (they have to be relinked as audio pairs in the timeline), and one of the external distributors I work with has come back saying the file we delivered did not have the audio properly linked as stereo.
    Am I doing something wrong here? I don't want to have to workaround by putting everything through FCP7, as we are really trying to keep our workflow within the Adobe suite and retire FCP!

    Hm, not from what I've seen. Anything that's been exported as stereo through FCP, Compressor, MPEG Streamclip, Episode etc. shows up as properly linked stereo in Final Cut.
    I just ran one of my Premiere exported files through MPEG Streamclip to the same format (ProRes, uncompressed stereo audio) and it showed up as having a linked stereo pair in FCP7, while the original showed 2 mono tracks. I am definitely exporting from Premiere with the stereo option selected (and stereo source audio).
