Stereo Pair Audio in Final Cut Pro

There are times when you want to unlink two channels of stereo audio. The most common reason is that there were two different inputs at the time of recording, and that the audio was accidentally ingested as a Stereo Pair. Once a Stereo Pair of audio is in the timeline it appears as if the tracks are linked, because they are acting as one. Linking is actually the term when video is paired with audio. When two audio tracks are acting as one, this is called a Stereo Pair.

To break a stereo pair into separate tracks, you need to uncheck Stereo Pair in the Modify menu. The keyboard shortcut to accomplish this is option > L. Once two tracks are unpaired, you will have independent  control of the separate tracks. Now if you recorded an interview on channel 1, and the nat sounds on channel 2, you will be able to change the levels individually.

To avoid this situation be sure that the Audio setting in the Clip Settings in Log and Capture is set to bring in dual mono, and not stereo.
