I am trying to time some particle animations to a song and I imported the song into my timeline, but I cannot see the waveforms. I was wondering if there is anyway to see the waveforms that way its really easy to time just right.

See this section of After Effects Help for the keyboard shortcut for showing audio waveforms:

Just select the layer and type "LL". There are numerous other shortcuts as Todd pointed you to.

...and I've also found that scrubbing the audio and using layer markers on the audio layer really help. Both are VERY useful techniques.

Thanks guys, I actually figured it out right after I made this posting. All I did was open after effects and I realized it was right in front of my eyes haha.
