CreativeCOW presents Changing Audio From Stereo to Dual Mono -- Adobe Premiere Pro Tutorial

Sometimes when you record you use different microphones on each audio channel of your camera. But, when you get into Premiere Pro, you find that you have one stereo channel and not two mono channels and so you can't edit them as you would like! So how can you change a single stereo channel into two mono channels? In this quick tip tutorial, Andrew Devis demonstrates how to make that change into two mono channels or even two 5.1 channels, as well as how to change a mono track into a stereo track and how to use the preferences to make it automatic if you have lots of clips changing from one thing to another.Changing

Hi Andrew,
I hope this isn't a dead thread ...
I'm coming from Avid and have taken your advice re importing as mono, but I'd like to change the default way that my sequences are set up so that I don't have the first couple of audio tracks as stereo, I want everything mono from the beginning...
Is this possible ???

thanks in advance

Alan

Hi Alan

Just so you know, PP now uses what it calls 'standard tracks' which are capable of holding both stereo and mono tracks - so you don't actually need to change the settings. However, if you want to you do that in the sequence settings.

So, when you create a new sequence, go to the Tracks tab and in the drop down change the Track Type from standard to mono. Then, at the bottom of that box you can save a preset for sequence settings which you can then select each time you start a new project/sequence.

Hope this helps
All the best
Andrew

Robert,
I had an assistant bring in hours of video/audio. She also did a ruff cut on the video/audio. I always change my clips to Mono as Stereo, however this step was not done and I have 9 hours of a ruff edit that I need to manipulate the audio with. I understand I cannot change it on the timeline. BUT can I start a new project, set the perferences to Mono as Stereo and pull in the current sequence??? If not is there ANYWAY i can fix this without starting over???
thanks,
Shannon

Hi Shannon

I had a check and with CS5.5 if you have production premium and you can do this through Adobe Audition. When you do is right click on the audio waveform and chose edit in Audition. Then, with the file in Audition you select Edit>Extract Channels to Mono Files and then save them in the right place, import them into your project and add them to your sequence. NOTE: If you present audio tracks are sterio you will find that the mono tracks go to the bottom and then automatically create new mono tracks.

Unfortunatly, this isn't so easy with CS5 and below.

Hope this helps

As America's Test Kitchen enters its 15th season on PBS, they've made the switch to Premiere Pro Creative Cloud. Post-production Supervisor and director Herb Sevush has been with the show from the beginning, and confessed some trepidation moving away from FCP 7, but has found it to be a great fit for their data-intensive, increasingly 4K multicam production, and his work with remote editors. Here, Herb offers some insights into both the why and the how of their switch, with special attention to Premiere Pro CC's approach to multicam.
