Audio Guidelines

Whether you are cutting in Avid or Final Cut Pro, you should approach your audio work with a plan. When adjusting audio, prioritize your work by starting with the tracks that are meant to be heard above all other tracks, such as narration, and work your way down the list.

Keep these guidlines in mind when working with DIGITAL AUDIO:

- The volume of the combined tracks should not exceed 0 db.

- Set primary tracks well below 0 db (-12 db - -6 db) to compensate for your other audio tracks.

- Set music track to -15 db or -18 db. Be mindful of your mixed levels. You may be able to either bump your music levels up or bring some levels down in order not to exceed 0 db.
