I found that the sound from the video recording of a live band worked pretty well for my purposes (listening for problems). But I don't need the video itself for some things. Is it possible to just grab the audio from the video and save it as just a sound file? I tried messing with iMovie but couldn't figure out a way yet.

You can detach the audio then copy and paste it around if you have other clips in the time line but if you want all the audio from a clip or group of clips put them in a project and do a custom QT export and export "Sound to AIFF file". Import that as an audio track in iTunes or drag directly on to another movie clip.

    Thanks - just the audio was what I wanted and your instructions worked perfectly.
