Mute channel of audio clip

Sep 4, 2012 1:20 PM

Is it possible in Premiere Elements 10 to mute one channel (l or r) of a particular audio clip on the timeline?

    In Sceneline view, clickk on the Track Header to the left of the audio track and a slider will appear.


    Unfortunately, Sceneline view is limited to only one video and a couple of audio tracks.


    You can also, in Timeline view, just drag the yellow lines across every clip down -- but there's no way to do it to an entire track at once.

    There are two ways using which we can mute the audio.



    1. Do one of the following in the Timeline:
      • If the clip is linked to video, Alt‑click the audio track of the clip in the Timeline to select just the audio portion.
      • If the clip is not linked to video, click the clip to select it.
    2. Choose Clip > Enable. (When you disable a clip, the check mark disappears next to the option in the clip menu, and the clip name dims in the track.)


    Hope it Helps

    If you want mono-sound, rather than channel mute, you can use the fill left or fill right audio effect.

    When I need to split channels in a 2-channel Audio file, in PrElements, I Share just that Audio to an intermediate file, and edit that in Adobe Audition, however, the free audio-editor, Audacity, will do it too.


    In PrPro, one can Split Audio in a 2-channel, or 6-channel Audio file, and then edit each channel independently. Maybe PrE 11 will add that capability.


    Good luck,
