What is the best Premiere workflow for importing and editing multiple audio clips?

40 viewsSoftwareediting Premiere workflow

I am considering the purchase of the Tentacle hardware but it’s not clear to me how I would work with the audio for . Here’s the case and the sub-optimal way I am doing it now:

Current workflow:

Single camera shoot with on camera boom, 2 DJI lav mics recording locally for subjects 1 and 2.

  1. Concatenate audio files so I have one for each lav (DJI audio files are split after about 20 minutes)
  2. Import video & audo
  3. Sync using premiere – quite easy for 2 mics and 1 camera
  4. Use “merge” command to link video clip and all 3 audio tracks – easy IF you have a single long take

This gets super complicated, super fast if you have multiple cameras and short takes. Regardless, even if I had timecode sync from Tentacle, I am not sure how it would help me link the video and audio tracksĀ for this workflow.
