Audio volume and mixing

The audio levels and stereo positioning of individual clips can be adjusted either directly on the Timeline, or with the Volume and balance tool. Each technique offers its own advantages. Adjusting on the Timeline gives you a good sense of time versus volume or balance, whereas the Volume and balance tool facilitates mixing – separately adjusting the volume and stereo balance of each of the audio tracks.

For disc authoring, the Volume and balance tool lets you choose to create a surround soundtrack, rather than stereo. The tool lets you dynamically position any of the audio tracks from front to rear as well as left to right.

Availability: Surround sound is supported in Studio Ultimate only.
