Audio Mixer

Adjusting with the Audio Mixer

By using the audio mixer, you can adjust the volume and pan of the track or clip on the timeline, or the clip being played on the preview window while playing it back. The level meter display can be switched between peak meter and VU meter.

When the fader is operated with learning, after a point is added to the rubber band the point can be edited.

Operation setting

Switch the volume adjustment learning mode (operation setting) or the subject of volume/pan adjustment from the list.

The master operation setting can be only [Master] or [Off].

[Master]

Adjust the volume of a whole track.

[Track]

Update individual tracks with pan control and fader operations. Learning is not implemented.

[Clip]

The clip where the timeline cursor is positioned is updated with pan control and fader operations.

The rubber band is updated with operations. If a rubber band point is set, pan updates as “Move All” and volume updates as “Move All On Scale”. However, if the value is -∞ at the beginning of the operation, the setting will be updated as “Move All”.

Learning is not implemented.

[Off]

Lock the pan control and fader.

[Latch]

Implement learning from the time point where the fader starts to be dragged up to where playback is ended.

[Touch]

Implement learning from the position where you start dragging the fader until it is released. Release the mouse to return the fader to the original volume automatically.

Implement learning through the entire playback.

Differing from [Latch] or [Touch], all the previously used volume values are overwritten regardless of dragging/releasing the fader.
