Extracting Separate Files From a Six-channel wav

I have a six-channel (surround) wav file I need to extract into individual mono files. I've been using SF forever but have never needed to do this, and have no idea how or if it's possible to do without simply copying and saving each channel. Is it? I'm on SF 10.

I don't assume that you can do this in one step
But: Below the process menu there is a tool called channel converter. Set the channel number to 1. Then set all tracks in the columns to 0% but the channel you want to export to 100%. Then do file -> render as with setting mono for your choosen file type. Beware of overwriting your original multi channel file. I would suggest doing this only with a copy of your multi track file.

Thanks for the suggestion, Rev. I looked through the channel converter options but didn't see a quick solution, so I just copied each channel to its own window and saved them individually. It would be nice to have an extraction option, but for 5.1 audio it really doesn't take that long.

Yeah, seems to be the most simple solution.
If you'd have this to with a lot of files then it would get tedious.
