    Re: Import Audio into one Track

    Not exactly sure what you're asking but here are 2 things to try:

    1. In the Audio Project setting you can set the default pan settings for dual mono tracks as either L/R and Center.

    2. If you want to import a track as Stereo, click on the MultiChannel Audio button on the Audio Tab in the Import Settings.

    If you are looking for a 50 50 mix of l/r on one mono track like in sound forge you cant. But you could do a center pan mono mix down of the l/r tracks

    Re: Import Audio into one Track

    As a rule you can't convert sources on import.  You can take multiple audio tracks and group them into Stereo or Mulit-Channel audio but you can't combine multiple tracks into fewer tracks.  The principal here is to bring in sources unmodified and then do any conversions within the timeline where the work can be both apparent and modifiable.  If you did this combining of the audio tracks from dual mono to single mono there would have to be some way to make it repeatable if it had to be done again...but there isn't.  Modifying the tracks before importing also makes the process repeatable because you're importing the modified media rather than the originals.

    But if you've got 2 mono tracks that are the same, bringing in only 1 track, center panning it and boosting it +3 db gets the same result.

    Hope that helps.

    Re: Import Audio into one Track

    Thank you for your help. I do not understand how I get it in just a mono track. Of course, I could only activate a track in the player but there is no setting that he just inserts a mono track?

    Re: Import Audio into one Track

    If it’s a single mono track, no problem. If you need to do some conversion to make it a single mono track first, you’ll need to do that before bringing it into Media Composer.

    Re: Import Audio into one Track

    I'm sorry for the silly questions but how do I get a simple mono track? I always have two mono tracks for l / r. Unfortunately, I have very little idea of ​​audio and Premiere / final cut was synonymous never a problem.

    my client has a master sequence and that only contains single mono tracks. how does it work? Thanks for your help.

    Re: Import Audio into one Track

    Are you saying you want to have dual-mono - ie 2 mono sources 'voices' on one track in the timeline? If so, why? Surely it's better for each mono source to occupy its own track so that it's independently manipulable.

    But if you really want to do it...

    A 2-track mono clip can be converted into a Stereo clip by using the Clip/Modify/Modify Clip/Set Multichannel Audio command. This will combine the 2 channels into one stereo, panning them l and r.

    You can then re-centre them, by using the Clip/Audio/Centr Pan command. This will give you 2 mono channels in one 'Stereo' track....
