Keyboard shortcut for raising/lowering ducked audio level
on Mar 6, 2015 at 9:23:33 am

Hello. Maybe it's a silly question, but I have looked around a bit and I could not find a way to adjust volume on a ducked audio other than dragging the bar with the mouse, which is often not precise enough for my liking. Am I missing it or is it just not there?
Thank you.

Just as with legacy, hold down cmd to limit the sensitivity.

Thank you Brett! This solved the problem. I used it a lot on Legacy, I don't know how I did not think of it on FCPX.

You can adjust the volume in the Inspector's Audio tab...while playing if you want.

[Scott Witthaus] "You can adjust the volume in the Inspector's Audio tab...while playing if you want."
Thank you, Scott. However, it seems I can only lower the whole clip volume from the inspector or single keyframes, not the part between two keyframes. Even if I highlight the bar, if I enter a value in the inspector, a keyframe will be placed where the pointer is, and no change will apply to the bar, unless I'm doing something wrong. I work mostly on long form documentaries containing a lot of background music and voiceover. I lay the music and duck the audio while I place the temporary voiceover, and I need to refine levels when I receive the definitive one. So the second passage involves a lot of raising and lowering bars by even just one or two db, sometimes, and I feel clumpsy when doing it manually even with clip appearance set to high.

If you highlight the keyframes on the ends of the bar, you can use CTL +/- to raise and lower that section. You can use the range tool (R) to lasso keyframes.
