Audio Leveling

Community / Guides
All audio within Lightworks is routed through the audio mixer which can be found on the Audio tab. The sequences can have up to 32 individual audio tracks, these can all be disabled, solo’d, or routed to different outputs, including the spatial positioning.

2. The Audio Mixer displays all the available audio tracks, each with its own sound level indicator.
3. The track for the mixer output is labelled LR.
4. To adjust the sound level for each track, slide the adjacent (blue) volume control up or down. Left-click on the track to reset it to its default level.
5. To adjust the overall sound level, slide the LR volume control up or down. Left-click on the LR track to reset it to its default level.
6. Click the track indicator to alternatively enable or disable its output.
