Today we have three reader QuickTips for Adobe Premiere Pro that take us from the relatively new Library panel to the Effects panel to the Modify menu. Thanks to the PPro-using readers for sending in these tips! And here we go…

Modify Audio Channels in PPro from Steve Tarlton
One trick I use all the time in Adobe Premiere is Modify Audio Channels.
So much of the time we are recording multichannel audio either into an external recorder or our camera. Most times that audio comes into Adobe Premiere with one audio source in the left channel and one in the right. I’ve seen people duplicate their audio in the timeline and then use the Fill Left and Fill Right audio effects to get mono audio from those files, but of course one of those audio clips won’t be connected to the video. In order to make those both mono channels, I’ll select my clips in the project window, Right Click and select Modify and then Audio Channels.
In the Audio Channels window, I’ll change the Clip Channel Format from Stereo to Mono. The I’ll change the Number of Audio Clips from 1 to 2. Usually that’s all you need to do. Once you click OK and then drag your footage to your timeline, you have a clip with dual mono audio.
Editor’s Note: If you have the default PPro keyboard shortcut setup you can just hit SHIFT+G and get direct access to the Modify Clip > Audio Channels.

quick 13:42 screencast video for his tip. Take it away Taran:
