In the past, when finishing an edit, I was able to duplicate a sequence and change my audio settings so I could make a multi-channel, 8 track split export of the cut without much effort.
It seems that altering audio sequence settings are no longer as easy as it once was and I can not figure out how to unlock it. I've tried everything I can think of to resolve the issue. I'm sure it's something obvious but I need help to resolve this.

I thought it was always the case that you couldn't change an existing sequence to Multi-channel. For that reason I would either start with a multichannel, or copy-paste all the clips in my sequence into a new multi-channel sequence.
I created a new sequence and followed your instruction. It solves my issue. However what I can't understand is why I haven't run into this before. I'm fairly sure Adobe updated something recently and changed what a user is able to do with audio channels.
Right click sequence in the Project Panel > audio channels.
That method only allows you switch between Mono, Stereo, 5.1 and Adaptive. It doesn't let you switch to Multi-channel.
I don't believe there is any other way other than the copy/paste method.
You are right: no multichannel.
