    Working with 2 tracks of Audio from a wedding, Groom Mic and Ambient?

      Hi,

       

      I am working on a wedding where the Groom  is at the Alter and he is wearing a Lav. Mic on his jacket.

       

      This is plugged into Channel 2 on the camera.

       

      Channel 1 channel is just ambient.

       

      I brought the footage in as 2 Mono Tracks ao I can separate the channels.

       

      When they were on the timeline, I Unlinked all of the tracks. I then deleted Track 1 off of the timeline (Ambient), I copied and Pasted Audio Track 2 onto Audio Track V1 so both tracks are now the Mic on the Grooms jacket.

       

      His audio was up and down so I had to make razor blade cuts before he spoke everytime to fix his levels. I then went into Audio Gain and, depending on how loud or soft he was, I adjusted the Audio gain volume in the dialog box for everytime he spoke.  

       

      Was this the best way to do this?

       

      Is there a better way to separate the channels and do what I just did to get the levels right?

       

      Is there a way to Highlight all of his clips, His clips only, and tell Premiere Pro CS 5.5 to make all his levels at -6?  That would be the best option. Then, if neccessary, I can just go in and tweak a few that still were too loud or soft.

       

      I come from FCP 7

       

      Thanks in advance
