Convert Audio to Mono
I want to be able to split my audio. In premiere there is the Fill with Left or Fill with Righ effect - that could suffice or if I could just convert the clip to two mono tracks from one stereo track that would be great.
I have a camera that only records audio to the right channel so I only get audio out of one speaker in Rush.
Thanks Jared, this is a great suggestion! We will see how we can work a solution into Rush. Out of curiosity, are you using an external mic that only records to one channel? If not, what camera are you using?

hello! i dont see this feature incorporated yet - was it, and I can't find it, and if not - would love this feature! I have old footage with damaged one side audio and I would love to be able to edit in rush for certain projects (rather than premier. Thanks!

Yes, If we had the ability to fill audio / dual mono then it looks like Rush would be very well suited to my needs. I always shoot with two channels - camera mic on channel 1 for environment and back-up - and a cabled or wire-less on Channel 2 for the dialogues/soundbites. I have just started playing with Rush (ummm... yesterday... I normally use FCPro) and it seems like it would be great... if I can get the (good) audio to play out of both ears!

This is very important for me since I use two channels of audio. The left channel is 10 dB lower than the right channel so I have a backup if an audio track is clipping.
This feature is a must have!
Yes, this is really useful especially with camcorder audio where the main audio is speaking/narration. If the camcorder records in stereo, then the audio wavers back and forth between L and R depending where the speaker is.
Also helps when you are adding SFX and you need to quickly 'de-stereo' a sound clip to make it more subtle.

Awesome. Thanks for trying to incorporate this.
As far as the camera I'm using...funny story. I have a Canon 60D with an external mic. The mic jack is a little broken so it only records to the right channel with an external source. Needless to say, when I eventually upgrade my camera the issue will be fixed.
