When you're doing a small or a big project, you simply must get this right in my opinion. Currently, i'm working myself on a project with [URL="http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolby_Digital"]5.1 surround sound[/URL], and it started out as a big mess. I'm working in Adobe Premiere CS6, so you can imagine the GUI.
I started out with the clip and audio on track #1. I use track #2 as another audiotrack for voice, when it is underneath another clip. track #3, #4 and #5 are ment for music. Track #3 is 25% more audio on the left, track #4 is 25% more audio on the right and track #5 is 100% on both the left and right. Track #6, #7 and #8 have the same purpose, but for SFX.
At the moment it's working out fine for me but i'm not really using the full capacity of 5.1 surround sound. Nonetheless, I hope I gave you a tip or two on how to manage your audiotracks. If you're already managing your own audiotracks aswell, please leave a reply on how you do it.
