Working in CS6 I brought in a stereo audio track that previews great but when I adjusted the levels (on the layer itself or using an effect) and preview it, it only plays back in the left channel. As soon as delete the stereo mixer effect or set the db on the layer back to zero it previews in stereo. This is a preview error only since I rendered out a section of the audio with the db increased in AE and it plays back fine in stereo. Why is preview only rendering one channel after I change the db levels?

The same is with me. It renders the file as Stereo when db level is at zero but if we alter it it previews only one channel.

There is no sound in the second channel.

But if you render the file, it will render as Stereo only.

May be this a bug in CS6.

This is happening for me too. Is this a glitch?

It definitely appears to be a bug.
