How to loop audio track and how to replace audio tracks.

Hello. I am using premiere pro cs6 win version.

I have two noob questions.


Can I loop audio tracks like After Effects in Premiere Pro? AE can loop audio tracks by using simple expressions.

For example I have a audio track whose duration is 10 sec and I want to loop it and make the total duration 1 min.


And can I replace audio tracks at once?  In AE, I can replace layers with other footages at once, if I hold alt and click footages from project panel and drop them onto layers in timeline. I mean I placed 100 same "sound effects A"(0.1 second)  in audio track 1, and I want to replace all "sound effects A" with "sound effects B" at once. Do you know how?


Thank you in advance.

    No to both questions. can still get the end result, just in a different way.


    For the loop, you'll have to duplicate the clip over and over until it reaches 1 minute.  Easily done with keyboard shortcuts for Copy and a whole bunch of Pastes.


    For replacing that many clips, it's easier to do this outside of PP.  Close the project, rename sound effect A on the hard drive to something else, and then rename sound effect B to sound effect A.  When you reopen PP, it will think effect B is effect A because it has that name, and all sound effect A clips will be using effect B.  Take note that this process will affect all A clips in the entire project, not just one sequence.  If you want to do this for just one sequence, or if you still need to use effect A somewhere else, then you'll need to do things the hard way by replacing every clip you want changed manually.

    yes to the second question,

    if only copies of this one sound effect A are in track 1, just lasso them all, if not, shift-select them all.

    then alt-drag effect B on them and it will change all selected A clips to effect B.

    you might have to nudge them all together a bit for the right timing afterwards, since PR takes the in- and out points from the original edit, just like AE.
