Grouping Sliders Using the Gang Feature

There are many instances where you want to adjust more than one slider at a time. You might want to select all of them to “ride the levels” and globally raise and lower all tracks equally. There also might be situations where you want to select certain groupings of sliders and adjust multiple tracks together without affecting other tracks. In either case, grouping two or more audio tracks so that you can adjust them in unison is known as ganging tracks. For example, if you want to adjust the levels for tracks 1, 2, 4, and 6 simultaneously, gang those tracks. As you move one of the sliders, the other ones move at the same time, at the same interval, regardless of their starting point. Therefore, if you increased the volume by a certain percentage, all the other tracks would also move up by that same amount from their original starting points. Premiere allows you to gang up to four unique sets of tracks. As you assign gang levels 1 through 4, each track grouping is color-coded for easy identification. To gang tracks, do the following:

Open the Audio Mixer window (if it isn't already open).

Right-click (Windows) or Option-click (Macintosh) each slider you want to adjust in the Audio Mixer window.

Select one of the four groups (Gang 1-4) from the pop-up menu. Select No Gang to ungroup that slider from being part of a ganged group.

Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for each track you want to associate with a grouping of sliders.
