Opening Audio Clips

The source view works the same for audio clips as for movie clips, except that instead of showing the current frame of the video, it depicts the audio as a waveform—a kind of graph of the audio's power over time. A mono phonic track appears as a single waveform; a stereophonic track appears as two waveforms (Figures 5.12 and 5.13). Often, you can identify particular sounds by examining the audio waveform. Powerful beats in a song are depicted as spikes in the waveform; silence or pauses between lines of dialogue result in flat horizontal lines in the waveform.
