Here’s a quick and easy way to roughly sound mix music with dialogue without the use of keyframes and rubber bands. This method is fast and easy to use with keyboard shortcuts, and also very easy to adjust later on!
Before I start editing, I add colored markers to the music cues I might be using. This system makes it very easy for me to know the exact structure of the music cues so that I can find the section I need quickly and efficiently.
This technique is very useful for multiple scenarios, whether you want a music cue to "ring out" whenever you'd like, or to add reverb to a sound effect. This tutorial is for all major editing platforms!
