I'm trying to level out Audio in my Premiere Pro CS 5.5 timeline.
Here's what I've done so far, and it sounds OK.
I laid my 12 minute on a timeline. I then went into Soundbooth from Premiere Pro. I wemt to Process ------ Hard Limit.
It brought up the levels a lttle bit.
I saved it, wemt back in Premiere Pro and clicked on my AudioTrack, I went to Audio Effects and raised the volume to 6 DB. It was still a little low so I added another volume effect from the Audio Effects folder onto the Audio Clip in the timeline. I then raised that up to 6DB as well. Now it sounds good.
The first time I did this I put the clip on the timeline, went into SoundBooth and put a Process ------ "Equalize Volume" on the clip.
I went back into Premiere and when I played it back, the levels were perfect, but the audio would go up and down when someone was not speaking. It was annoying.
So that's why I did the "Hard Limit" I described above.
Now my question:
Is there a way to level out all of my Audio to -6 without going into SoundBooth? I would like to do it only in Premiere if possible.
If not, How can I get the best possible sound that is level and does not go up and down when someone is not speaking?
Thanks in advance.

Apply an effect in the MIxer ton the tracack that you want to contyrol.
You have t olook a little for the Effects Twirl down Triangle thingy. Adobe HIde this stuff a bit. ( Check the Manual).
Next . It s perfectly normal to "ride" the levels of any audio. ( Music,FX and Voice). Do it in the MIxer.THe MIxer in PPRO is morte powerful than many realise
.BTW - Sound Booth is a dog - compared to Audition or ProTools or even Premiere (for most people)
