Have an audio track ("storyline") with several volume edits made throughout.

 

Simply need to reduce the volume of that entire storyline by a few DB.

 

Can this be done?

 

Only way I can see to do it now is go through & manually tweak each edit.

    just shut down FCPX ...

    but you can add a new audio efect on top of the edits already there and this effect could be a volume control...either before or after .

    If you had several different audio clips can you make a compound clip of them all and add an audio volume effect to that?

    Select the clips and use Control-minus to reduce the level and Control-= to raise the levels. You can do this during playback and the levels will be lowered and raised relative to the current position including keyframes.

    my post readslike a suggestion to shut down FCPX ..which of course is not good advice to solve your problem...%-(

    what I meant was I have just shut down my Fcpx and so am advising from the top of my head...either way ignore me...

    I did the following with success: I clicked on the first clip then  holding down the shift key and marked the last clip and lowered the volume in the Audio Pane. For some reason, "select all" did not work.

    Drag the cursor over the audio clips to select them - and ise Ctrl+(minus or plus key) as Tom suggested.

    Maby I misunderstand something I selected the video clips (including the audio), not detached audio clips. I thought that was he was asking about not separate audio files.

    I took this to mean audio only. Maybe the OP will clarify.
