Discord track is the same wave forum as mic track?

What is your operating system?
Windows 10, 32GB ram, 4gb vram

What is your Shotcut version (see Help > About Shotcut)? Is it 32-bit?
20.07.11, I think it’s 64 bit

Can you repeat the problem? If so, what are the steps?
I’ve been recording with voicemeeter potato for a while to record separate audio tracks for the game, my mic, and discord. So when I put my video into the software and separate the audio tracks the game audio is fine, but the discord audio wave forum is the same as my mic audio when it obviously shouldn’t. I have to do a lot of editing on my friends side and this is making it difficult. Is there a fix for this?

In the picture my mic is A1, discord is A2, and game is A3.
(Please be specific and use the names as seen in Shotcut, preferably English. Include a screenshot or screen recording if you can. Also, you can attach logs from either View > Application Log or right-click a job and choose View Log.)

I see you have a video file in an MKV container. Maybe you have several audio tracks inside the video.
I do some recording for a course (I use OBS Studio) and set up a video with 3 audio tracks, where the first track is the desktop audio, the second track is just the electric bass input, and the third track I reserve for the webcam microphone.
The resulting recording is an MKV video with three audio tracks.
So when I import into Shotcut, I can choose which audio track I’m interested in.
In the example, I have added the same video to the three tracks V1, V2 and V3. Then in “properties” in the “audio” tab I can choose the audio track.

I don’t know if this will help with your problem.

Sorry, but no. When I put in my tracks, I use the one video track then detach the audio for each channel which works the same as putting in three of the same videos and changing the channel on each. The problem, which looks like its the same for your example, is the shown waveform. Assuming that they aren’t supposed to be the same audio, they show the same tracking when they aren’t the same audio. Which can make editing difficult. I did try your method of importing though, but it still didn’t change anything. But thank you for helping.

Did you try the “Rebuild audio waveform” option?

I did not reproduce this on latest beta or version 20.07.11. I only a clip with 2 audio tracks, but I doubt that makes a difference.

You did not provide steps as requested. You wrote “detach the audio for each channel,” but you cannot detach the audio from the video more than once. I had to copy the audio clip object, add an audio track, paste it, and then change Properties > Audio > Track.

I just noticed in your screenshot that you are using proxy. I tested with both proxy on and off.

I also see in your screenshot that audio waveform for A3, which comes from the clip IS different than A1 and A2. So, it seems to be working. Select the audio clip on A2 and look in Properties > Audio > Track. Repeat the same for A1. If they are indeed different and set correctly, then you should verify the audio between them are actually different.

This fixes the issue thank you.

I am glad it worked. :grinning:
