Lesson 13. Mixing Audio Tracks > Adding and Organizing Audio Tracks

Adding and Organizing Audio Tracks

How you organize your audio tracks will depend on the type of project you are editing. For example, if you are editing a music video, the mixed music track would most likely be on tracks A1 and A2. But if you're editing a narrative piece, such as a documentary or news story where dialogue is important, you might organize your audio clips by building downward starting with the dialogue. Generally, dialogue clips are on tracks A1 and A2 because they are attached to the video clips on the V1 track. The stereo music tracks might go on the lowest available tracks because they are often added last to the final sequence. Sound effects clips can be grouped together on middle tracks. The important thing is to make sure you have a plan.

  • Look again at the different audio tracks in the Audio Mixed - Finished sequence.

    The dialogue tracks are on A1 and A2, different sound effects are on A3 and A4, and two music clips are on A5 and A6.
