Remapping 7.1 audio with Premiere and/or Audition?

Hello all,

I'm hoping someone can give me some guidance on a problem I'm having with remapping/retaining audio channels. 

My specs: 2015 MacBook Pro, updated Adobe CC suite

Here's the scenario:

I help run a small local cinema where we show short films and promos, but I often have to adjust the video to make it work with our projection system.  The problem occurs when I'm sent a ProRes mov file with pre-mixed 8-channel sound.  I have to modify the video, but I want to retain the audio as it was delivered (or as close as possible).  However, when I drop the file into premiere, it unmaps the channels.

When I drop the file into my timeline, this is the sequence it creates:

I've tried creating a new sequence with 8 mono tracks, multichannel tracks (with panning done in the mixer), etc., but nothing quite works.  I usually end up loosing the rear surrounds.

Does anyone have any experience with this?  Is there an obvious solution?  Do I need to be going into Audition?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Josh

You have to click on the ‘output assignments’ in Richards screen grab above, or the same little icon in the track mixer, and route 3&4->3&4 etc. Default is for them all to route to A1&2

Hi Richard,

I can do that, but I think the issue comes in when I export.  If I'm exporting to ProRes with uncompressed audio, how does it know to map the channels to the correct speaker locations correctly if I'm only panning left and right in the mixer?  This is normally how I'd export.  What do you think?
