Sorry to keep bothering you over something probably so simple but I want to make sure that I learn this and get it right. I looked at the link that you gave me and that was very helpful but now I am stuck again.

Here is my waveform that I converted my audio into:

Looking at this I really can't create a threshold to write an expression around so I pose this question:

How would I write an expression that would change the color one layer to white only on the peaks of the audio? Basically ( and I know this isn't java)

if(the waveform peaks, flash contents of layer white, do nothing)

I was looking at another effect, change to color, would that work if I just set it to each key frame that the audio peaked manually.

Thanks for the help and again I am sorry for asking so many questions about something that seem so simple. I really want to expand my knowledge here not just pump out crappy videos.
