    Reversing a mixdown

    Done a silly thing. Mixed down loads of layers & forgot to make a unmixed down copy of sequence.

    I can step into the mixdown & adjust - but is there any way I can actually reverse the mixdown & create new sequence of the underlying layers?

    Re: Reversing a mixdown

    If you can step into it, you may not have done a mixdown, rather you collapsed multiple tracks into one track.  Step in and mark in and out over the entire duration and select all tracks.  ALT+C (or the MAC equivalent -- I'm on a pc) copies all the selected tracks to your source monitor, then you can drag the sequence icon from your source monitor to a bin.  Voila, you now have a multi track sequence... you can then edit over the submastered/collapsed effect

    I would suggest making a copy before you try all this...

    If you did do a mixdown, and cannot step in and see the individual layers, then you attic will be your best bet.

    Good Luck!
