    I have a feeling apple already knows about it, but I think I found a workaround if it’s still giving you trouble.

    Double click your problem compound clip so it opens up in the timeline.

    Adjust the volumes of one of the tracks, like lower the volume half way down. See if there’s audio in the event browser now. If there is, set your audio back, and you should be good to go! (for now…)

    Hi Loren,
    No, your workaround doesn’t make any difference for me, the clip in the event browser is still silent.
    I mailed apple about it though and they asked me to upload the files and the event and the project so they could examine it.
    So they are looking into it.
    I’ll wait and see!

    I’m having the same problem. I have a synchronized clip in the event library that I was subclipping using “favorite” commands. It was working fine until about halfway through the clip. Hopefully this is a bug that will be fixed! Anyone have a simple solution?

    This is the first time I’ve edited with FCP X and it seems a bit idiosyncratic and buggy.

    Here I am, almost a decade later, still experiencing this exact problem. So if Apple knew about it, they haven’t done anything about it.

    I just stepped into what might be another variant of this same issue: I have a simple 2 camera interview shoot – Subject off angle, subject close eye line, Camera audio ( crap) 2x tentacle track E audio files, interviewer and subject. I made a multicam clip of all 4, 2 camera angles 2 audio tracks. All good so far. In the angle editor all clips line up, play back ok sound and picture wise. When I drop the multicam clip into a project, which is pretty standard, A-roll, B roll etc, the multicam clip is silent, I see picture however the inspector only shows clip, color correction tabs and Info, no audio. I just burned through 90 minutes of trying to get audio to play back in the multicam clip in my project, No change in audio status. I quit FCP, re opened the troubled time doodled a bit. Pulled the multicam out of the project and then put it back in. Now suddenly the multicam behaves as expected. I can designate the audio I want and switch angles and its playing nice for the moment. I have done quite a few multicam projects and this is the first one I’ve seen that exhibited this behavior.

    And just like that- suddenly Multicam clips behave normally again.
