Chapter 10. Mixing Audio > Adjusting a Clip’s Overall Gain

Adjusting a Clip’s Overall Gain

You can adjust the overall volume, or gain level, of a clip in the timeline by using a menu command.

To adjust the overall gain:

1.
Select an audio clip in the timeline (Figure 10.5).

Figure 10.5. Select an audio clip in the timeline.


2.
Choose Clip > Audio Options > Audio Gain (Figure 10.6).

Figure 10.6. Choose Clip > Audio Options > Audio Gain.


The Audio Gain dialog box appears.

3.
To adjust the gain, do either of the following (Figure 10.7):

Figure 10.7. In the Audio Gain dialog box, adjust the gain manually, or click Smart Gain to have Premiere normalize the gain automatically.


  • Enter a value for the gain.

    A value of more than 100 amplifies the audio; a value of less than 100 attenuates the audio, making it quieter.

  • Click Smart Gain to have Premiere calculate a gain value automatically.

    Smart Gain normalizes the audio, attempting to boost the volume where it’s too quiet and limit it where it’s too loud.

4.
Click OK.

The audio clip’s overall gain is adjusted by the amount you specified.
