Using Envelopes in Soundtrack Pro

In addition to being able to adjust the pan and the overall volume of an audio track by way of slide controls in Soundtrack Pro, you can also use what are referred to as envelopes to adjust these parameter. Think of envelopes as a graphical representation of audio values much like the ones you would find in Final Cut Pro when you toggle on clip overlays in the Timeline. Click on the Automation disclosure triangle located to the far left of the track. You can then choose to Show All envelopes or just the Volume or the Pan Envelope. The default state of the volume envelope is 0db and the pan is set to center.

To create gradual shifts in volume or pan values, double click on the envelope at the point when the change is to occur in order to create a new point. As you adjust the volume or pan, you will see an overlay in the form of a numerical value informing you of the current db or the percent by which the track is being panned to a respective channel.
