Set the project playback volume

You can set the basic project playback volume by dragging the Volume slider in the control bar. The Volume slider acts as a master volume control for the overall project.

Generally speaking, you should adjust the output volume to a level high enough to eliminate background noise, but not high enough to cause clipping. You can check for clipping by watching the clipping indicators in the master level meter.

  • Drag the Volume slider left or right.

    Option-click the slider to return it to a neutral value (0 dB gain).

You can also show the master track, and adjust the overall project volume using the Volume slider on the master track. Additionally, you can add a fade-in or fade-out, and make other volume changes to the overall project using the master track. For information about the master track, see Work with the master track.
