Thanks Bret. You are absolutely right about picking the best channel and using it exclusively. I would just want to add something about using this exclusive channel, which I have learned the hard way. Probably someone reading this in future could find it useful. Don't forget to correct me if I am wrong.

There are two ways of using this exclusive channel.
1) Use it on a mono track.
2) Using on a stereo track by applying fill left/fill right effect and convert to a stereo file with 2 identical channels.

Most people blindly suggest, method 1 is the correct one. However I think that is not always right. If the master track of the sequence is already set to stereo, I think method 2 is preferable, since most NLEs in this case would apply Pan law and attenuate the mono track's volume by 3db. So for a sequence with a Stereo Master Track, using stereo tracks EVEN FOR VOICE (with identical channels of course) is more preferable.

If the master track is set as Mono or Multichannel, then without question, method 1.
