    Anyone know of any type of easy software method to "switchboard" individual audio channels from a 5.1/7.1 mix of an .mkv movie?

    I'd like the ability to easily switch through the audio channels of a playing movie file -- without too much trouble. In other words, I'd rather not have to extract and dissect the audio from the file, but rather, have a sort of easy-access "switchboard" to mute certain channels at-will.

    I currently use MPC-HC, fyi.

    Bitstream for me, this would be controlled by my audio processor, not computer.

    What's wrong with using a custom channel mapping in MPC HC's internal audio switcher?
