Let's say I have the following arrangement of my audio tracks:

x ---------- 
y ---------- 
z ----------

and I want to have them arranged this way instead:

x ----------
z ----------
y ----------

What's the easiest way for me to make this happen?

(As an example, in Reason, I would grab the audio track I wanted to move and then simply place it where I want it. This does not seem to work in Premiere.)

As you have discovered Premiere Pro doesn't let you move the tracks as easily as that (I wish it did!)

Fastest method would be to create 1 or 2 empty tracks (right click on a track label and select Add Tracks) then use the Track Select Tool ('A' on the Keyboard) to quickly select an entire track:

Premiere Pro Track Select tool

(Click and hold lets you select and move the track at the same time).

You could also select an entire track, Cut it, move your other tracks around, then Paste it back into a new track (you can choose which track it gets pasted into by clicking on the Track labels, Premiere will paste into the top most highlighted track)

  • @speldosa fingers crossed it has been improved in CS6! – OrangeBox May 7 '12 at 2:45

On Mac, select footage that you want to move. Hold down ALT, use Up or Down arrows to move the entire track.
