You can use Adobe Audition to easily work with multichannel audio up to 32 channels. In the Waveform Editor, you can individually edit and process specific audio channels. You can also work with multichannel files in the Multitrack Editor as a single clip or with the channels split across multiple clips.
If you have multichannel audio or video files, you can edit each audio channel separately in the Waveform Editor by following these steps.
To use multichannel audio or video files within a session, you can bring each of the channels of the file into the Multitrack Editor as one single multichannel clip (default behavior). You can also automatically split each channel or groups of channels into different clips by holding Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac) while dragging.
- Select and drag the channels you want to import to the Multitrack panel. You can also select multiple channels and drag them to the same track or different tracks.
- To add channels to different tracks, hold Alt (Windows) or Option (MAC).
To channelize the clip according to the channelization of the destination track, use the double-modifier behavior using Command+Option (MAC) and Control+Alt (Windows).
You cannot modify the number of channels in a clip you have added to a track. You can, however, replace one channel with another.
