Join Paul Trani for an in-depth discussion in this video Normalizing audio, part of Premiere Pro CS4 New Features.
A common issue you will run into as a video editor is the variance in volume…from one clip to the next, because basically what you would have to do is go…into each one and then normalize it on a clip by clip basis. Well, this gets…painful and tedious when dealing with a lot of clips.…Luckily, I can actually normalize the master tracks to a specified volume. So…actually what I have here, is the master track volume that I can then go ahead…and adjust and I'll raise or lower the volume level of all of the tracks pretty…much for the whole sequence here.…
What I actually want to do is I want to normalize this. So I'm actually going…to go to Sequence and I'm going to go to Normalize Master Track. So I want to…basically raise or lower the volume of each clip to this specified value. So it…can be as high as zero or I can just make it -6 decibels, kind of making…it a little lower but in general, normalize all the tracks to this decibel level.…I select OK and it normalizes the tracks, the Master Track volume. I can go…
