Chapter 11. Working with Audio > Adjusting Volume, Balance, and Fade on the Tim...

Adjusting Volume, Balance, and Fade on the Timeline

You can use the Timeline to modify the adjustments you made using the Volume or Balance controls or create your own adjustment handles and edit them manually. This section shows you how to do both (and how to delete unwanted adjustment handles).

To adjust audio volume

1.
Touch the target track.

Studio turns the track blue. Note that the cursor has two states for audio editing. The cursor resembles a hand when hovering over any part of the audio track except the blue audio level line (Figure 11.45). In this state it's called the Location Adjustment cursor, and it lets you move the track to a different location on the same track or to a different track.

Figure 11.45. When the pointer looks like this hand, you can move the file to a different location on the track or a different track.


When you hover the pointer over the blue audio level line, it converts to a speaker and becomes the Volume Adjustment cursor, which you can use to create or adjust the levels of adjustment handles (Figure 11.46).

Figure 11.46. When the pointer looks like a speaker, you can create and move the adjustment handles.


2.
With the Volume Adjustment cursor, do one of the following:

  • To create an adjustment handle and adjust the volume, touch the audio line and move it to the desired volume level.

    Studio creates an adjustment handle and adjusts the level (Figure 11.47).

    Figure 11.47. You can create an adjustment handle by touching the volume line, and dragging the volume down.


  • To adjust a previously created adjustment handle, touch and drag it to the new volume level (Figure 11.48).

    Figure 11.48. Here I've increased the volume.


    You can drag the adjustment handle in all four directions: up, down, left, and right.
