Streamlining Audio Editing in Adobe Premiere for Multi-Person Podcasts

I'm currently editing a podcast recording featuring three individuals, each equipped with their own microphone. While the setup ensures clear audio for all speakers, it presents a challenge during the editing process. Each microphone captures the voices of all participants, making it tedious to manually mute/unmute audio tracks based on who's speaking.

With hour-long footage to sift through, the process becomes highly time-consuming as I must listen closely to discern who is speaking at any given moment, as it's not visually evident from the audio track alone.

I'm seeking advice on how to streamline this editing process within Adobe Premiere. Are there any features, techniques, or plugins available that could help automate or simplify the task of muting/unmuting audio tracks based on speaker activity? Any insights or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

The audiotrack screenshot is attached for reference. 

Thank you!

I'm with Peru Bob ... this is specialist work and the Audition users are better experienced at such things.

 

Are they using perhaps counter mics in front of them or something? Lavs frequently don't have this issue unless the people are really close. If counter-mounted mics, with multiple people side by side, they need to be really close to the mouth of the speaker.

This is more a tip for simplifying the task (but it would still be manual):

You could set up a multicamera edit with four "cameras" for your 3 audio tracks (and if you only have one video track, make the video identical for all three cameras). Then you can switch from one audio to a other one with only one click. Normally the multicamera edit features are used to switch between different videos, but it can also switch audio with the video.
