First of all, let me start with the fact that I'm a switcher from Final Cut Studio to Production Suite, so I'm not sure if I'm just not looking at this problem correctly. I have a finished film, and have received 5.1 audio stems (5 surround channels plus a LFE channel)and stereo master stems for broadcast. I need to create a finished file that has both the 5.1 audio attached and the stereo master. In FCP, I could set the audio to output 8 channels of audio, which I could then assign using QuickTime Pro 7. Can anyone suggest a workflow using CS6 Production? I'm trying to get away from the Apple product because I expect that sooner or later, new OS's won't support the old software.
Thanks in advance

Here is a PrPro CS 6 Audio tutorial, but it's pretty general: http://tv.adobe.com/watch/learn-premiere-pro-cs6/explaining-audio-edit ing/
Here is the AdobeTV tutorial, on mix-downs, in PrPro CS 6, that I was looking for: http://tv.adobe.com/watch/short-and-suite/mixdown-option-for-stereo-an d-multichannel-in-audition-cs6/
Hope that helps, and good luck,
Bill, close, but not really what I need to do - I have 8 mono .wav files, each represents a fully mixed down channel of 5.1 surround AND stereo, which is how the broadcaster expects to receive the file. What I need to be able to output is a video file that contains the 5.1 surround and stereo in the same file - not a mixdown of the combined files. Again, I'm sure there's something obvious I'm not seeing, but the output mapping only seems to be hardware based, and doesn't apply to file output.
I can get multichannel output, but there doesn't seem to be a method to assign those tracks as L, C, R, Ls, Rs,LF,Lt and Rt. Currently I have to do that in QuickTime Pro 7 (a discontinued product). I'm trying to figure out if I can do this inside of the Adobe Suite, or if I am going to need to look for third party solutions for this, as we have to supply media in this format on a regular basis.

You can't with PP tools. Your export options are Mono, Stereo, 5.1 and Multichannel. Choose one.
(Or rather, you can choose as many as you want, but only one at a time. You'll have to use other software to combine those exports.)
