  • Voice Isolation for audio with multiple tracks in FCPX

    Posted by Saki Bergh on November 16, 2023 at 2:47 pm

    When i receive audio with multiple audio tracks and i use Sync-a-Link to sync the audio with the video the option to use voice isolation is not there

    the only way around it is to detach my audio track on my timeline from the video clip and then make the audio clip a compound clip

    when i then click on the audio clip in my timeline, voice isolation appears in the inspector

    does anyone have an idea if there is a better way of doing it and why does voice isolation not work when there are multiple audio tracks in the metadata

    You need to select a audio component (=track) first in the Audio Inspector to apply Voice Isolation effect. The Voice Isolation works on audio track basis.

    One of the more frustrating things about Voice Isolation is that it does not work on Dual Mono audio. If you switch the clip audio to stereo it will work. If you’re using Dual Mono you have to use it on the audio component level. The thing is I often want to use Dual Mono because the audio summing increases the volume when both channels have the same content.

    If both channels have the same content, mute one, only use one as a mono channel. Why do dual mono?

    As stated, summing increases the volume and is easier than working around FCP limits on increasing the volume.
