I accidentally recorded microphone audio while I was recording a call with the system audio recording. Is there a way to split the two audio tracks? 

Thank you!

These should actually be separate tracks. You might need to right click the main video track and choose to split the audio and video.

Cheers... Rick :)

Hi Rick!

Thanks for the quick reply :) I would expect them to be separate tracks, but they're one inseparable track. I wonder if it's because I didn't record a screen, just the two audio tracks...? 

It doesn't offer to separate the two (see screenshot).

Ahhhh, so sorry. My bad. I neglected to notice that this was on Mac.

I'm a PC and that's how it works on PC. So many things are the same for Mac. Too bad this doesn't appear to be one of them!

I must need more coffee!

Hm, no, that's how it works on Mac as well. You shouldn't need the "separate audio and video" because as you pointed out, this is all audio. Still, if you really did record it with both mic and system audio, when you drag it onto the timeline there should be 2, already separate tracks... Maybe it doesn't actually have both? Or did you record it with something else like Snagit?

Hmm, it must have been user error. I must have switched the wrong audio on because nothing else seems to explain the behavior. Bummer. 

I really appreciate the input from everyone!
