Chapter 10. Mixing Audio

Chapter 10. Mixing Audio

Whether you use all 99 possible audio tracks or only two, you will probably need to make subtle adjustments to them to achieve the best overall effect. This process, known as audio mixing, can be accomplished by manipulating audio clips in the timeline or by employing the new Audio Mixer window.

If you thought the last version of Premiere expanded its audio features, you'll be that much more impressed with the improvements you'll find in Premiere 6. In addition to the real-time Audio Mixer window, Premiere 6 includes an extensive list of audio effects from After Effects. In the timeline, audio pan and fade controls are easier to see and select, and you can toggle the waveform display on and off. And though you could keyframe effects in the last version of Premiere, now keyframes are visible in the timeline.

You'll be happy to know that you can hear the results of audio mixing right away, in real time. Although multiple layers of audio or audio effects must be previewed to be heard (see Chapter 9), previewing audio doesn't take nearly as long as previewing video effects.

In addition, Premiere provides a wide range of audio effects you can use to correct or enhance audio—a process called audio sweetening.
