I am sending L and R audio into Toaster, I can see inputs for both channels but only see the left on the output side!!!!
Need this to work NOW because I have a deadline to meet in studio

power your system down

reseat the audio cables

power back up

Rebooted a couple of times.
I have determined that the audio is getting into the SX8 in stereo
but somewhere/somehow inside the software it is not being output on the right channel. I have swapped cables to verify this.
Everyone has left in disgust. I just knew that the problem wasnt the toaster but alas, I have been proven wrong

I have panned the inputs and it is clear that the right channel input of the toaster is disabled or not functioning properly. Clips with L/R audio playback from DDR just fine but I cant get L/R audio in!!!! Have rebooted more times but still no effect!!
To be more specific, input meters on channel 2 show left and right
have signal, but the main VT3 in shows only left channel. Is it possible to re-assign this somewhere in software??

Play an external stereo source, while you -gently- slide the audio input cable in and out. The cable can sometimes be pushed in too far, causing one of the channels to lose connection.

Should'nt there be two waveform clips for left and right audio? It would make things alot easier. Apparently VT3 merges the L&R channels onto one waveform. The only way that I've found to control the channels individualy is through the clip properties pannel but I still can't separate them visually. I find this very confusing and hard to work with. I hope the upgrade adresses this problem.

If you really need to see left and right on the timeline, you could copy your audio clip (unlock A/V, ctrl-drag) and set the pans for left and right...

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

Sorry, but what you suggest will NOT give you L and R waveforms.

The lack of separate L and R waveforms has always been a thorn in my editing, and I really, really hope it is fixed in the next upgrade.

The way it currently is, there is only ONE waveform generated, and it is a MONO sum of the L and R channels, so doing what you suggest won't give you separate L and R at all.

There is NO way to do that in the VT[3] currently, unless you actually RENDER out a wav of each channel separately and then bring them back in as separate WAV files.

Audio support has always been a weakness in the VT[3].

Oops, he's right again. Thanks for the correction Eugene.

Rendering out and re-importing seems to be your best bet.

Thanks for the helpfull info. Sure hope Newtek improves this for us. All in all though, VT3 is a great system. I'll admit I've never had experience on any other non-linear editor, but for ease of use and stability it's been great.
