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 :)

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!

I have the same problem. I recorded camera audio one one track and microphone on the other. On the time line there is no way to separate them. i usually use camera mic as a backup and mute that track in editing. That is with other editing platforms. I thought Camtasia would do this.  Maybe not.

Yes, you can separate them, and mute them independently as well. Right-click (two-finger click on mac) and choose "Separate Video and audio"
