Deleting three of four audio source channels

I'm trying to expedite my transcoding workflow for this particular project, with scores of clips to review.

My HPX170 records up to 4 audio channels, and in this case I i have my current preset configured to take channels 1 and 2 as mono tracks, and 3 and 4 as stereo. On testing this is working properly.

However, we now know that we ONLY want source channel 2 (cleanest audio) on the output files.

I can't figure out how change the preset to map source channel 2 to a single output track. I can delete 3-4 without issue, but when I delete track 1 in hopes of keeping only 2, the resulting output has source channel 1 instead of channel 2 as the lone track.

I may be missing something obvious to a more seasoned user.

Thoughts?

I don't think this is possible to do directly from Media Encoder. You can set this up on Premiere Pro, however, and then transcode using AME. Have you tried that?Thanks, Kevin

This does work, functionally speaking, and it's where I started, but it didn't seem terribly efficient for 80-plus clips. If it's the only way to do it though I guess that makes it efficient
