A Tour of Adobe Premiere > Adding audio

Adding audio

Now you'll add some music to the project by importing and placing an audio file in the first audio track. The music in the audio file was recorded in a studio, digitized, and then assembled and rendered in Premiere.

1.
Choose File > Import > File, and double-click the Music.aif file in the Clips folder within the Tour folder. The file appears in the Project window.

2.
Drag the Music.aif icon from the Project window to the Audio 1 track.

3.
Click the arrow to the left of the track to expand it.



The expanded view shows the waveform of the clip. The waveform displays the volume of the audio over time. Higher peaks in the waveform indicate greater volume. In the next section, you'll come back to the audio track to synchronize events in the video with the music. For now, you'll lock the track so it doesn't get repositioned later.

4.
Click in the box next to the speaker icon to lock the audio track.



5.
Click the Program view Play button in the Monitor window to preview the video and the audio together.
