Problems Increasing Audio Levels in Quicktime 7.0.3/7.0.4 Pro

Recently I had problems trying to increase audio levels in QuickTime 7 Pro. If I increased my audio levels to +6 db in the Audio Settings under the Show Movie Properties window using QuickTime 7.0.3/7.0.4 Pro and saved my movie, then closed it, the adjusted audio levels didn't remain. The audio levels instead returned to the +0 db default settings. If you're using the latest version of QuickTime 7 Pro you'll probably have the same issue.

A work around solution for this problem is to increase audio levels in your non-linear editor. Many times you can increase your audio levels in your NLE to the point right before it peaks. Make sure it doesn't sound distorted when you export your videos or record to tape.

Of course another work around is the revert back to the Quicktime 6.5.2 Pro version but then you wouldn't have all the great features of QuickTime 7 Pro. I think it's worth it to find a temporary solution for now. I'm hopeful that we will see a solution to this audio level adjustment bug in future QuickTime updates. I'll post another blog when the audio level adjustment bug is fixed.

Note: I have not tested this issue on a PC using QuickTime 7 Pro.
