Query regarding sound in avid tracks A1-4 appear to be muted/rest of tracks okay
I have inherited an avid project and there are a few issues that i am trying to get to the bottom of, and i am hoping someone here might have experienced the same issue, and will be able to help.
In my timeline A1-4 is generally the Dialogue tracks, A5-6 FX, then A7 is the dialogue Stems (the film has been mixed) and A8 is the FX Stem and A9/A10 is the music stem.
Everything seems to be working okay. We are mainly only working with the stems and adding dialogue etc where changes are being made to the picture. However, what i have discovered is that tracks A1-4 appear to be muted. If i solo them i can’t hear anything at all. However If i go to the audio mixer those tracks don’t appear to be muted, they are all on 0. Another strange thing is that if i try and match back one of the audio clips on A1-4 it won’t match back at all. they appear be ’empty’ clips. If i add new clips to the tracks then I can hear those fine, and those match back okay. It just appears that all the old clips are linked to the Dialogue stems in some way and silenced.
has anyone experienced this before? and if so how do i undo it so i can hear everything and match back.
