This is a feature in other DAWs such as Pro Tools. You just drag a stereo clip onto 2 mono tracks and it explodes the stereo clip into 2 mono clips.

The current way of having to go to the Files tab in the browser is honestly ridiculous

There's an even easier way in Protools, and ideally there would be the same in Studio One: Right click on a track name then select "Spit into Mono"

There can be 2 alternatives which should take very little time for S1 devs to implement, test and release:

A. Add the "Split to Mono Files" feature to files in the pool. This way, we could Right-clic the stereo event/ Audio / Select in Pool then use the feature.


B. Add event Right-click / Audio / Select in Files. Hence, we could use the "Split to Mono Files" with ease.
