Stereo files that need to be dual mono

Recommended Posts

I jumped in to help a small non profit with their documentary program that had audio problems. Mostly it needed to have the audio balanced between two on camera talents shot outdoors while demonstrating with small animals. Each talent was mic'd separately, but I received a stereo audio track where one was left channel and the other on the right. The project was done in Adobe Premiere which cannot change stereo to mono once edited into the timeline. There are a lot of edits, so recutting it was going to be huge.

I tried a round trip to Adobe Audition and it appears the problem is the same there.

I'm told Pro tools can handle this easily, but I don't have it or know it.

Is there a workaround that I'm overlooking?

Finally, the video with audio file is a mp4 format, not an editing format.

True. A major limitation in Premiere Pro.

But, if I understand your problem correctly, there is a hack you can use that might save you some trouble. Read this, starting at post 36.
