Introduction to Audio Ducking

Introduction to Audio Ducking

By Roger Wambolt

This tutorial shows you how to use Audio Ducking in VideoStudio X8 to balance the levels of two audio tracks. Audio Ducking is a powerful new feature in VideoStudio X8. Audio ducking correlates two audio tracks, so that as one increases, the other automatically gets quieter. A common use of audio ducking is for voice-overs; the music fades as the speaker begins. Similarly, it is often used in translations. The original speaker grows quiet but continues in the background as the translation is played over top.
