Keyframing Multiple stacked audio tracks

Hi Everyone, I'm trying to use the pen tool to manually create fades on my audio tracks for a sound edit I'm prepping. I have four tracks of audio for each clip and I want to keep them all for my mixer because I don't know what is what. Right now, when I create a key frame it only creates a key frame in that one track instead of appearing in the same spot in all four tracks. It's super tedious and not precise. How do I get the keyframe to show up in all the tracks?



p.s. Running FCP 7

I haven't tried this trick, but give it a shot: link all the audio clips together, use the pen tool for the fades, and unlink them. I'm pretty sure it will work.

That's the thing. I did link them. (Command+L) but somehow I still have to keyframe each track separately. I do recall on some past project creating a keyframe in one track and then seeing that same keyframe in all the tracks below it but for some reason that's not happening... I've looked through the User Preferances and can't find a fix for this :((

no, it's very boring, but you cant do this.

you can on a linked stereo pair, but that's it.

you CAN add a keyframe to all tracks if they are selected, and you use the add audio keyframe command (option apple k, is it?)
but then you have to drag each one manually.

best is to keyframe one track, copy & paste attributes into others.
and simples way to do that is: keyframe top track,
select clip, copy, paste attributes, you get a warning about only copying first tracks attributes, you say yes, and continue.

still very boring!
sometime i get fed up and simply add a transition!
