How can I make the waveform larger without adjusting gain or volume?
If I set my speakers half way it would blow out the windows when I played back something averaging -6dBm.
Play something from Yahoo news, or ABC news, or something to help you find a good spot on your speakers.
The visual representation show me that you have a very low signal. Look in the Audio Mixer to see what the peak values are.

The workaround for your situation is to right-click on the audio track, select Audio Gain, Adjust Gain by 9 dB (or an amount that is satisfactory), click OK. This increases the amplitude of the visible waveform.
Now, to return your audio output back to a desirable level, select the audio clip in the timeline, in the Effects Controls lower your volume to counteract the Gain adjustment (i.e. -9 dB)
It's not a efficient workflow, but it does achieve the specific attributes you requested.
Wow its amazing that expanding the waveform window does not adjust the zoom of the wave form itself. Mabye in CS_NEXT
Thanks, but I'll just stick to the small waveforms I guess. I don't want to make the mistake of not returning it to the original gain.
Did that as you can see by the image. It does not ajust the size of the waveform.
Stretching the audio track height does increase the waveform visual amplitude. Your levels are so low it's hard to see the change, but it's there.
If you offset the Gain (used to increase waveform amplitude) by adjusting Volume in the opposite direction, you don't have to "return it to the original gain", it will be at the same output level as the original.
Thanks. I see that I could do that, I just didn't think that was not a Zoom feature on the audio waveform. It would be like streatching the video and not having those frames show bigger. It does it with the video keyframes, just thought it would do it with the waveform as well. Oh well, maybe in CS_NEXT
