I don't do any sound stuff in Premiere and have only Premiere CS3... but I have been doing some sound outside of Premiere and have been reading up on using Premiere for doing some sound editing. Does this portion of the help file on mapping sound do you any good ? The bold I put there to more or less ask if you have that enabled or not since you might have different setting since upgrading to 64 bit ??
Map audio channels
You can define how a clip’s audio is mapped to channels, audio tracks, or both when the clip is added to a sequence or viewed in the Source Monitor. You can determine how different types of clips are mapped, by default, by setting Audio Output Mapping preferences. Mapping is applied to clips in the Project panel using the Source Channel Mappings command. You can simultaneously apply the command to multiple master clips. When the command is applied, the following controls are available in the Source Channel Mappings dialog box:
- Track Format
- Defines the type of track in which the clip’s audio channels are grouped—mono, stereo, mono as stereo, or 5.1 surround. When you change a master clip’s track format from stereo or 5.1 surround to mono, Adobe Premiere Pro maps each channel to a separate mono track. When you add the clip to the sequence, the clips on the separate mono tracks are linked together. For more information on multi‑clip links, see Linking multiple audio clips.
- Enables or disables an audio source channel. When you add a clip to a sequence, only the enabled channels are added to the Timeline panel. Disabling a source channel also prevents you from swapping its output channel with another source channel.
- Source Channel
- Lists the original channels of the clip’s audio.
- Displays the order that the channels are placed into the Timeline panel.Note: Under Track, the numbers don’t correlate with the actual audio track numbers.
- Displays the channel type that the source channel is mapped to.
- Playback button and slider
- Lets you preview the audio of the selected source channel. You can preview a source channel whether it’s enabled or not. The playback button and slider is unavailable if you’re applying the Source Channel Mappings command to multiple master clips.
You should map source audio channels before adding a clip to a sequence. If you apply the Source Channel Mappings command to a master clip that’s been added to a sequence, you can swap only the output tracks and channels between source channels. The Track Format and Enable controls are unavailable, preventing the master clip’s overall configuration from becoming out of sync with instances of the master clip already in a sequence.
Thank you! There were two selections under Audio Output Mapping preferences. One was Stereo and one was Digital. The only one checked was Digital, so I unchecked that and checked Stereo and it worked. Was probably changed somewhere along the line when they did the upgrade.
Thank you again for sharing this information and getting me back on track!
