Lesson 6. Working with Effects > Adding an audio effect to change balance

Adding an audio effect to change balance

Audio is an important part of all video projects and with Premiere Elements you can improve or enhance the audio portion of your video project. In this exercise, you will change the balance of an audio track.

1.
Make sure you are in the Advanced Effects workspace. If you are not, choose Window > Workspace > Advanced Effects to enter the Advanced Effects workspace. In the Contains field of the Effects palette (located at the far left of your screen), type Balance, and the Balance audio effect will be shown below.

2.
Click and drag the Balance audio effect from the Effects window onto the audio clip in the Audio 2 track. Because you are in the Advanced Effects workspace, you will see the settings appear in the Effect Controls window.

3.
Click on the right-facing arrow next to the Balance effect in the Effect Controls palette to reveal the Balance controls. You may need to scroll down the Effect Controls window to see the controls.

4.
Click on the arrow next to the Balance value to reveal the Balance slider.

5.
Click and drag the Balance slider to the left to approximately -80. This will shift the stereo effect of the man speaking to the left, thereby matching its position on the screen.

6.
Place the current-time indicator at the beginning of your timeline by clicking and dragging it, or by pressing the Home key, and then press the spacebar to play the project.

If you want to experiment with positioning the sound of an audio track in stereo space, you can drag the Balance slider as the track is playing. Your changes will be heard in real time.



7.
Choose File > Save As and name your project 06_End. You have completed this lesson.
