Why does my stereo audio track become two mono tracks?
When Premiere imports XML, stereo audio becomes split in to mono channels. PluralEyes will make sure they are linked, and for most purposes that is good enough. I
f you need to work with them as stereo, you can create a stereo submix:
- Suppose the linked mono tracks are Audio 1 and Audio 2.
- Create a stereo submix (Submix 1).
- Set the Track output assignment for Audio 1 and Audio 2 to Submix 1.
- Pan Audio 1 all the way to the left; pan Audio 2 all the way to the right.
- In the Audio Mixer panel, twirl down the triangle at the upper left to show the Effects and Sends view.
- Add track effects to the submix in the standard way (using the drop downs in the Submix 1 column).
- Make sure the audio track is expanded (click the triangle next to the track name to expand)
- Click the Keyframes icon, select Show Track Volume from the fly-out menu
- Add keyframes on the timeline or drag the yellow line to adjust volume
- Select Effects (Shift 7) > Audio Effects>Mono
- Drag and drop the "Volume" effect to the clip on the timeline
- Right-click on the clip, select Show Clip Keyframes > Volumes > Level
- In the Effect Controls panel, click the stopwatch in front of Level to ON to make the Add-Remove keyframe button active
- Add keyframes in the Effect Controls Panel or on the timeline to adjust the volume
