I'm editing for the first time for broadcasting, so I never had to work with 12 audio channels for sound. 

 

I've loooked around and figuared out the setting for the numbre of tracks but not sure where should I place everything on the tracks. 

 

Music, in the music track, but I have two tracks for music R+L, should I put it on both? 

Where should I put the dialoge? I have 3 people talking at the same time (different mic and track for each person) and two tracks for dialoge


Would love if someone could tell me what needs to be in each track: 

Ch. 1+2: Stereo Mix

Ch. 3+4: Dialogue

Ch. 5: Left

Ch. 6: Right

Ch. 7: Center

Ch. 8: LFE

Ch. 9: L Surround

Ch. 10: R. Surround

Ch. 11+12: M&E

@Sheer29130809alo1 Is this list you gave what you have been given as a delivery spec? If so, that is written as if you are receiving a final mix from a sound mixer, who will usually give you back WAV audio files timed exactly to the length of your edit and they will give you usually 12 mono WAV files, one for each of those tracks. Then you just pass them through as 12 mono tracks in your deliverable.

No, this is what I found online searching how to do it. 

All I was told is that I need 12 channel for global distribution, and I'm trying to figure out how to do it

Got it. You'll need to get this answer from whoever is receiving your delivery. They will have delivery specs regarding what audio configurations they expect, and those are usually extremely specific and you should not guess about them. They will want certain audio stems on certain channels, exactly.

 

The normal flow is then you have your editing timeline with audio on whatever tracks, and you then send that to an audio mixer using the AAF interchange format (File > Export > AAF). The mixer then does the audio mix and based on the delivery specs will render you out WAV files, one for each of the required channels on the delivery specification. You then duplicate your timeline, delete all the edit audio, and cut in the stems from the mixer. You configure your sequence like your screenshot, and then export to the delivery format and make sure in the Audio export settings to export as mono channels.

What if there is no sound mixer, and they want me to do the mixing?

Even if you're doing the mixing, you'll need the delivery specs from the people receiving your deliverables to know for sure how they want the audio channels laid out.

 

Once you have those, you can do the mix in your timeline in Premiere Pro and map your sequence tracks to the sequence output channels such that the right elements are sent to the right outputs. What would be tricky is if your delivery spec requires the 5.1 channels (the 5,6,7,8,9,10 channels in your example) as Premiere Pro isn't really set up to mix 5.1.
