Importing split stereo

I’m having trouble figuring out how to import existing split stereo (from another ardour project, for example) into an ardour stereo track.

I always end up having to import left and right into their own mono tracks.

Is there a better way?



oh, and this will all be greatly improved post-2.0, when a major redesign of the way import/embed works will be done.

the files have to be named in a way that follows protools conventions: foo%L.wav and foo%R.wav. select both in the import/embed dialog, and embed them (not import) as a new track. you will get a new stereo track. i think it might work if you embed into a track, rather than as a track as well.
