Audio linked in stereo
When I transfer my shots into FCP7, they're coming bonded together as stereo files.

Is there a setting that will change that, so that channel 1 and channel 2 come in as independent monaural files?

Re: Audio linked in stereo
You can unlink them once they're on the timeline. Alt - L I think.

Yes, but still a lot of extra steps. Unlink, then shift each track back to center channel. I've had a choice with other cameras.

Re: Audio linked in stereo
You're right it takes a little longer, but only a few clicks? Here's four possible methods.
None are automatic though... sorry if you already know this.

1. You can use the track tool to select everything on a track, unlink the whole lot, then use Control - . to make them all centred.

2. Make the master clip's audio centred in the viewer before you edit with it - setting the pan to zero, then unlink the audio channels once in the timeline.

3. Change the file properties in Quicktime player to dual mono, then re-save the file.

4. I expect this could also be Apple Scripted, or batch processed using that OSX atom thingy?

This may not be what you're looking for, but this might also work. Just select dual mono in your sequence settings like this:
