Audio channel spliting and relinking???

Hy folks,


last week I got an annoying problem or maybe I didn't know how this function works or if it's even possible.


I'm a convinced premiere CS6 user but some features are better in Final Cut - sorry that I have to admit it.

Last week I got an Premiere CS6 project to finish up (it was already edited 90%). I recognized this sequence got 1 Audio track with an L and R channel and just the R channel was useful (the L was trash).
I just couldn't throw the L channel away. I had to go back to the project window, modify the clips, place the R channel beneath the stereo channel, sync all the audio tracks manually and then replace the stereo track with the R channel. It worked, but I had to wast time to fix that. There could be an easier solution in my opinion.


First I tried in the timeline to deactivate the L channel and than (like in final cut) pushing a slider from the R side to the center that the R mono channel is balanced to right and left equally, BUT there was no such slider. Something like this would be a big future improvement and a time saver if you set up a project in a non useful way .



My question is: Is there an easy way (I don't know yet) to split a stereo channel into 2 mono channels in the timeline? OR, can I balance the right or left channel after turning off one channel (so the output isn't just on one side)?


Another question: After syncing MANUALLY the audio clips again, I wondered if there is a feature where I can relink an audio clip (the same or in this case the momo clip (coming from the same AV-clip)) to the video clip after deleting it???
Because sometimes you delete an audio clip (from an AV-file) and later you recognize this was a bad mistake - and you have no IN and OUT points set on the source file so you can just overwrite the clips? A feature like right click on the video clip and restore audio file from this video clip, and if you got an L/J edit for instance an window pops up and ask you if you want fill the empty audio space on the track (J/L edit stay untouched) or overwrite it and the video and audio clip have the same length???


Is there a feature somthing like that I don't know???


Because sometimes you work on a project with a few people and they are doing something what makes your life harder or a director/producer changes there mind like I'm faced everyday???



Thanks in advance for helping and for clarifying!!!

    There is.  Just add a track level Fill Right effect in the Mixer.  Maybe five seconds worth of work (if you're lazy about it ).

    Match frame the video.  This will open the clip in the Source Monitor with In/Out points set.  From there you can just drag down the audio and relink it to the video.
