Mix to Mono in Screenflow 6

Just updated to Screenflow 6 and I don't see the "mix to mono" button.  I see you can adjust with this weird slider, but not input an absolute value. 

 

 

And then when I have selected multiple audio tracks, I used to be able to mix all to mono at once. Now I can't!

 

 

This is frustrating because my microphone only records one channel and I need to mix all tracks of mono. Since screenflow doesn't have an option to do this when you record like most programs, I need to do it after the fact. Now you have taken this away all together. 

How can I fix this?

  • The pan pot can Center Pan it to both channels equally.
    Perhaps a button or click that automatically center panned (mixed to mono) would help.

    Please do request a Click to Center Pan button.
    Or maybe Mix to Mono on Input option.

  • So are you confirming it is not possible to mix multiple tracks to mono at once?

  • Although it isn't true mono when dealing with stereo tracks, it does currently snap to centre pan. I would be more concerned about not being able to use the panning controls for multiple tracks at once like the OP pointed out. Even when two tracks share the same panning values selecting them at the same time still results in "Multiple values"

  • Currently you can only act on one clip at a time. Please do request support for multiple selected clips.

  • I have submitted it, but it seems this isn't a "feature" but a regression.

  • I want to be able to mix audio to mono in several tracks with one button. This surely is a regression, I hope the functionality comes back soon.

  • Feature in that it may be implemented in a new way given interface.

  • Matti Pekkarinen Joel Can you also submit a request so this shows up on their radar?

  • Yes the number of requests can influence development priority. Each person should submit a request. The advantage of having a forum and posting is that others uses can see a good feature request and jump on it as well.

  • If you submitted you'd get a case number. Given it's a change in the program it may take some time to determine how it might be handled.

  • Okay - hopefully "put the checkbox back" isn't a huge undertaking - I'll look to hear back soon.

  • For anyone reading this, I have very little faith this will be implemented anytime soon as I have not heard anything.

     

    I ended up buying Loopback which lets you create virtual microphone interfaces:

  • Ouch. I'm going to get lots of angry people in my production environment. The same here - our sound cards have always recorded on one channel. The first thing is always "select all clips and switch audio to mono"

  • Fill out the feature request form I posted. The more requests the more it can influence developer priority.

  • If any of you want a different (potentially cheaper) solution other than https://rogueamoeba.com/loopback/ then I have created a tool in Keyboard Maestro that mixes the currently selected track to stereo, as desired.

  • Alas do request the feature and explain if you feel there's an urgency for it. Evaluation and time to implement a feature has many considerations and the developers tend not to reveal road maps because things come up.

  • I just upgraded to Screenflow 6 and it´s not acceptable that the mix to mono check box is gone. Why should I use the weird sliders instead?

  • Yeah its a pretty huge oversight - still haven't heard anything at all from Telestream. Did you submit an issue?

  • Matthias Hombauer currently you have to center pan the channel. Please do make the feature request (see the link on my first post).

  • Matthias Hombauer You're welcome of course. Obviously others are asking about it so the developers are investigating. The number of requests can influence the decisions.

  • Agreed that this is frustrating. I submitted a feature request.

  • One workaround I found: if all of your audio needs to be mixed as mono, you can check the "Mono" option in Export > Customize > Channels (see attached screenshot). Granted, this issue still needs to be fixed inside of the editor as sometimes you need to have both stereo and mono audio tracks in one project, but this should help for now for those of you like me who only have one mono mic and always want to mix to mono.
