More about audio tracks and audio selectors

You use audio selectors to associate input audio with output audio. You can set up a single audio selector to represent one or more tracks from the input. After that, you create audio tracks in the output and associate a single audio selector with each output track.

Associations between input audio tracks, audio selectors, and output audio tracks follow these rules:

  • Each input track can be associated with one or more audio selectors

  • Each audio selector has one or more input tracks

  • Each output track has one audio selector

The following illustration shows these relationships. In the illustration, the input file contains three audio tracks. Audio selector 1 selects input track 1. Audio selector 1 is associated with output audio track 1, so track 1 of the output has the same content as track 1 of the input. The second input audio track is not selected by an audio selector, so it isn't used in the output. Audio selector 2 selects input tracks 1 and 3. Audio selector 2 is associated with output audio track 2, so output track 2 contains the channels from input tracks 1 and 3.


					Use audio selectors to associate input tracks with output
						tracks.

For workflows that require channel-level control, use the audio channel remix feature, which supports the following workflows:

  • Changing the order of channels in an audio track

  • Moving audio channels from one or more input tracks to different output tracks

  • Combining the audio from multiple channels into a single channel

  • Splitting the audio from a single channel into multiple channels

  • Adjusting the loudness level of audio channels
