Hi there. My name is Zach, and today I'm going to be explaining how to adjust audio levels in Final Cut Pro. First you're going to start off by recognizing whether your levels are okay or not. There's a pretty neat tool over here that actually shows you how many decibels your audio currently is. The general rule is to stay between negative 12 and negative 6 decibels. So let's see what's wrong with my audio clips. As you can see, she is very quiet here, not even close to negative 12 or negative 6. Now obviously she is way high on her audio levels. One way to adjust these audio levels is simply just double click your audio. You can pull your audio up with the level tab, just by dragging the slider. A second way is to go down to the mountain peaks, aka, the toggle clip overlay. And once you click that button, you're going to have little lines that are pink on your audio clips and here you can actually just adjust like if you double clicked it. And now when I play through my clip, the audio levels typically stay between negative 12 and negative 6. My name is Zach and I just taught you how to adjust your audio levels in Final Cut Pro.
