Tip #1515: A Faster Shortcut to Audio Levels
Use the Volume slider in Audio Inspector to adjust multiple clips at once.
Normally, we adjust clip volumes by dragging the volume line in a timeline clip up or down. But there’s a faster way.
Select all the clips you want to adjust in the timeline. Then, in the Audio Inspector, drag the Volume slider. This makes an absolute audio adjustment, setting all selected clips to the same level.
NOTE: An “absolute” audio adjustment sets all clips to the same level, regardless of the level at which the clip was originally set.
This is much faster – and more accurate – than changing each clip individually.
