I'm learning about the Audio Mixer panel and effects. I set up a Bass effect in the Effects and Sends panel as a test. On page 341 of the Premiere PDF it states:
To bypass a track effect, click the Effects Bypass button near the bottom of the effects list until it appears with a slash.
I tried turning off the Bass as described, and it worked. I then went to the Timeline to hear if the effect had been turned off, and it was. However, at the top left of the audio timeline there is a box saying Effect 1: Bass, and two items appear as a sub menu: Bypass and Boost. So I chose Boost and the little box now said: Effect 1: Bass: Boost. But the bass wasn't being boosted.
It appears that you can turn off an effect in the Audio Mixer, but the Timeline still indicates the effect is operating.
Am I missing something, or is this a flaw?
The little box in the Timeline appears to indicate Bass is operating when it is not. If Bass if turned off in the Audio Mixer, I would have thought the Bass option in the Timeline should not be there. It is not operational, yet it is clearly there. Doesn't look right to me.
But, when you try to adjust the Bass level (by moving the yellow line) a little note pops up: "Bass off". So all is well and good.
It's there in the timeline because it's a keyframe selector, and that's all it is. Both Bypass and Boost can be keyframed individually in the timeline, so you need a way to select which keyframes you're seeing.
