  • How to Mix CH1 + CH2

    What is the best (and simply) way to mix CH1 + CH2 in 2 channels (left/right) ?
    CH1 mic : ambient sound
    CH2 mic : HF (speak)

    (Edius 6.03).

      I dont quite understand what you mean by mixing the two channels, but if you mean that you want them to sound like a mono , or that you want them to come through both speakers, just add the pan pot/balance filter, and when you open the dialog box, slide the two uppermost sliders to the center....You will notice that the one on the left is set far left, and the one on the right is set far right...just slide them to the center, while checking that they both come to the same number, and that the meter overlay are well balanced....You can later save this as a custom preset for future use....If I understand you correct, this is what you need to do.....

      I record some functions this way......so in my final edit, I have to do this to create the right atmosphere...

        Thanks Alade and Rando.
        It's just the right tool for this purpose (CH1 + CH2 mono in both channels).

          Use the Panpot and Balance filter and center both channels. Then don't forget to save it as a user preset (we call it Centered Audio) for future use.

            It sound like you are recording sound much like I do. I also use the Pot-Pan filters to control my L/R channels independently. Usually for my wireless (speak) track, I just make it mono. But if I'm at a reception and want to have great music sound, but I only have the one left channel (mono), I will copy the track place it in the audio area. I then use the Pot-Pan filter to pan the audio to the Right, while keeping the left track where it was. Now the sound will not be any better than if you just made the single left mono track out put to both L & R. I then will off-set the right channel by about 2 frames. If you wanted to, you could also sweeten one of the tracks, make it sound a little better. Because the L/R channels and just a little out of sync, it will sound a little more like stereo.

              The free Kjaerhus Classic VST audio filters also have the ability to add stereo separation to a mono channel:

                Somehow, I just dont like using VSTs, as many do not work well in Edius, plus, Edius has so many things, if we take time to examine the built-in items, we would not want a lot of things we burden Edius with, and our PCs as well......I hardly use any plugins to et what I want, not that O dont use them, but if I find an alternative in Edius, why should I use a third party plugin that may cause problems

                  Pan pot problem

                  I am also trying to spread my mono channel from right (or left) to center using pan pot. This worked well when applying to a channel in one of my clip sequences. Then, after dragging that sequence into the main sequence1, the pan pot effect is gone. If I remove the pan pot from the clip sequence and then add it to the audio track in the master sequence the pan pot centering works until I click ok in the pan pot dialogue then the audio reverts back to left or right as before I applied the pan pot. I am using Edius 5.5.

                    what about alt+enter on the clip, audio tab, set mono2, this will make the right channel appear on left and right with the same level
