Source material should ***** to timeline track selection not vice-versa
It is mind boggling that Premiere is set up this way compared to every editing system going back to Sony tape to tape editors. If I'm working on a sequence that has x amount of audio tracks and I load a clip that has 8, 16 or more tracks I shouldn't have to go make sure all the ones I don't want are shut off especially if my audio in my sequence is locked and I'm just sourcing video clips. Also, to make it worse, PP automatically adds audio tracks I don 't want based on source material. It's completely *** backwards! When working with film material with multiple audio splits it's a major headache to constantly be managing your timeline instead of working on your edit. I literally have a hot key to delete unused tracks.Please fix it as it's a major flow breaker, and time suck. At least make it an option in preferences. -Thank you

Crickets! How about someone from Adobe actually explain to me how the current work flow for audio patching makes sense? I dare you! It's ridiculous!!
