Forums Adobe Premiere Pro Audio Issue – combining all tracks into one

  • Audio Issue – combining all tracks into one

    I’m having a problem I’ve never experienced before. When I drop my video clip onto a timeline I’ve been working on, all 4 tracks are combined into one single audio track. I can’t move it off the audio track on the timeline it puts it on either. It’s like I’m locked into this. I’d like to separate them somehow. All the other video clips are behaving as normal.

    Right-click the file in the project bin and go to Modify>Audio Channels. There you can customize how the tracks are interpreted when you drop it onto a timeline. You’ll need to do this before adding it to a timeline. For simplicity you can choose the “Mono” preset, which will create 4 mono clips on your timeline instead of one 4-channel clip.

    Just make sure you pan the tracks left and right accordingly in the Audio Clip Mixer panel (or the sequence settings) — Otherwise stereo audio will all be centered.

    Thanks, that worked! Checked the settings of the other clips and they were set to “Use File”. Switched to that, problem solved.

    Thanks Chad.
