    I am a FCP user so when a friend asked me this question and spending 2hours trying to find out how to do it, in the end I am no better off.

    What my friend wanted to do is:

    Timeline: 1 video track, 2 pair of stereo audio track.

    Stereo track 1 is output via SDI and assigned to Track 1 & 2 on the digital betacam


    Stereo track 2 is outout via SDI AT THE SAME TIME but assigned to Track 3 & 4 on the digital betacam.

    What is the setting and where can I find it to do this? I know how to do it in FCP but on Premiere Pro, I am lost.

    Sorry about multiple post here, the server return an error and I tried posting again and again but apparently the 1st one already got posted.

    make a 5.1. project and assign Stereo pair 1 (for Ch 1 and 2) in the audio mixer on the front speakers
    and Stereo pair 2 (for Ch 3 and 4) on the back speakers.
    Now you can playout 4 different audio channels with SDI.

    Good luck 🙂

    Ok, will try this method. But is there not a more correct way to do this rather then this workaround? It’s strange I can’t tell Premiere which audio channel a certain track is supposed to be output too. It’s very easy on FCP.
