About the Audio Mixer

The Audio Mixer provides faders, panning sliders, and solo and mute buttons for each
track in your sequence. There are also Master meters for each audio output channel in
your sequence (determined by the audio output preset of the sequence).

As you make audio level and pan adjustments in real time, you can record these
adjustments as keyframes, allowing you to automate your mix when you play the
sequence back. You can also use a hardware control surface to control and automate
multiple faders at once. For more information, see “

After you record audio level and pan keyframes, you can fine-tune them in the Timeline
or the Viewer using the Pen tool to adjust the clip overlays. For more information, see
