Chapter 8. Basic Audio Editing > Changing the Volume Level for an Event

Changing the Volume Level for an Event

While you can use the two blue triangles in a selected event to create fade-ins and fade-outs, you can use the blue square to graphically edit the overall volume level for an event when it is played back. This option, in combination with the fade-in and fade-out options, gives you deep control of dynamics for any event in the Project window.

To set the overall volume level for an event

1.
Click an event with the Arrow tool to select it.

2.
Position the pointer over the blue square in the middle of the event (Figure 8.35).

Figure 8.35. The pointer is over the blue box and can now set the overall volume level of the event.


The pointer becomes two opposing vertical arrows.

3.
Drag up to increase the overall volume level of the event, or drag down to decrease the overall volume level (Figure 8.36).

Figure 8.36. Dragging down decreases the volume level.


4.
When the volume level is set where you want it, release the mouse.

The blue square will show the relative volume level of the event, and the waveform will update to show the result of the change (Figure 8.37).

Figure 8.37. After the mouse is released, the waveform changes to reflect the new, lower volume level of the event.
