no idea if it would work, but First thing I'd try is:
drag all the organist talk clips to the end of the timeline,
use the 'show track volume'(instead of default clip volume) to re-level them differently to the main music clips,
then drag/drop the organist intros back between the main music clips.
Or -this one's better-
create new audio layer(s), (rename them 'organist intro channel') then you'd sort of be dragging a project long audio config down to zero/razoring them out when not used, instead of dexterity intensive fine tuning.
Have you tried the audio transitions in Premiere Pro? Constant Power for a cross fade suits me best. Saves lots of time fiddling with the mixer or volume rubber bands.
Thank you, JackBarber and David J. I take it, from your responses, that the answer to my question is "No" :-) Shame! Perhaps generating custom audio transitions is something Adobe could add to CS4.
David, it's not just the volume that needs adjusting - the 5.1 mix and EQ have to be changed too. Jack: That's certainly a good thought. It's given rise to another one: (1) render the sequence optimized for speech; (2) render the sequence optimized for music; (3) razor between the two rendered versions; (4) apply constant power audio transition between clips. Anyway, I'll try all three ideas and see how I get on.
