Ninja PT Workflow: Dual Mono to Stereo

Going from multi-channel to mono tracks in Pro Tools is as easy as selecting your track and choosing “Split into Mono” from the Track pulldown. However, going the other way, from mono to stereo, isn’t as simple. For me there’s always a doubt that I may be accidentally moving audio left or right on the timeline and opening up a new can of worms. The method below quickly and accurately moves mono tracks to stereo giving you access to multi-channel plug-ins while slimming down your mix window.

1. Make a new Stereo track to the right of the dual mono tracks you wish to move

2. While holding Shift, use your mouse to select the audio regions and Copy them with Command + Cscreen-1-pt.jpg

3. Turn on Keyboard Focus (see pic –>)

4. Use “P” to move selection UP or “:” to move selection DOWN into your New Track

5. Command + V will copy the regions into the moved selectionscreen-2-pt.jpg

6. Delete or deactivate mono tracks and move them off the Show/Hide list
