    Convert dual mono tracks to stereo audio tracks in media composer

    Hi all, Is it possible to convert existing dual mono tracks in a sequence to multichannel stereo audio tracks?

    I need to convert every audio clip on this sequence to stereo multichannel:

    Ah good. Another thing I have to get used to. Control surfaces don't work well with dual mono in MC because you can only have one gang at a time

    Thanks Job :)

    Painful work-around:  Export the clips as a stereo wave file. Reimport and auto sync (if it was from a video source).

    That makes no sense. Turning the source clip to stereo is easy in MC(clip-modify-set multichannel audio). Changing a clip already in the timeline from dual mono into stereo (maintaining clip levels etc.) is what cannot be done. Export/import won't solve that.

    To be clear, you can modify the source clips to stereo, but then you'd still have to manually replace your existing cuts.

    Dooh ...  I totally misread the original post.  Sorry.

    Yeah I've long wished we could go both ways...merge two timeline tracks into stereo. Why can we break them up but not merge them???
