yes but how do i set key frames so I can mute a few seconds of audio. every time i ask about key frames i get no help or info about products i am not interested in . I am in Elements. Have patience I will keep searching for the proverbial needle in the haystack
You simply create keyframes on the audio clip.
To do this, click to select an audio clip on your timeline and position the CTI over the spot you want the change to occur. Click on the Make Keyframe button on the Track Header to the left of the audio track.
Create as many keyframes as you need. The higher you raise a keyframe, the louder it will be. The lower you set it, the quieter.
I've got an illustrated article on Basic Keyframing on Muvipix.com.
You can also find illustrated step by step instructions in my book, if you'd like a thorough how-to for the program.
I can now add the keyframes but when I try and drag the yellow line down to lower the sound, the
Entire line for the whole clip is lowered not just the bit between the key frames.
Also I tried to register on the muvpix web site to read your article and buy your book but
1 after entering my details it asks for a code but none is visible despite me pressing the button
2when trying to fill out their contact screen it again asks me to enter a code which I did but it
Repeatedly told me it was invalid
So if you have contacts there could you perhaps forward this to them to report the difficulty that I have in registering

Initially though it is easier to Ctrl-Click directly on the audio timeline to create the keyframe points and drag them around plus raise/lower volume. You can then use the keyframe panel to fine-tune if necessary.

Unfortunately, some users have experienced issues with the two Fixed Audio Tracks: Narration and Soundtrack. Those issues seem to be very Project-centric, and will crop up later, in a Project, that worked well for a long time - sometimes they crop up immediately in one Project, but others will be just fine.
When one encounters issues, when using Narration, or Soundtrack, the workaround is to find an empty, "regular" Audio Track, say Audio 2, or Audio 3, then Move the Clips from either the Narration, or Soundtrack Audio Track. That has always fixed those Audio problems, related to the two Fixed Audio Tracks.
