Applying gain to to multiple instances of audio track in timeline...

Hi all. I have a problem(s) for which there may not be a solution yet. Perhaps someone here knows.

 

I am cutting together a collection of several captured zoom interviews. I have already sequenced my clips in the timeline. Now I want to apply different amounts of audio gain to different interview subjects, as they were recorded at various volume levels. Is there a way for me in Premiere to apply gain to the master audio file of say, Deborah, so that I raise it +5b, and then it automatically ripples through every instance of a Deborah clip (and only Deborah) in the sequence? In other words, I'd like to avoid having to search and manually select every clip of Deborah in the timeline because there's so many clips of her interspersed and it would be easy to miss one. I want to be able to basically tell Premiere: "Wherever Deborah lives in this sequence, boost her level by Xdb!"

 

I should say for the record I already tried right-clicking the audio file in the project panel and applying gain. It raises the volume visibly in the waveform in the source panel, BUT has no effect whatsoever on the clips already in the timeline.

 

Also, if you take the above and substitute basic motion fx on video for audio gain, is that possible? In other words: "Wherever Deborah lives in this sequence, scale her up 150%!" Or "... reposition her to XY."

 

Is any of this possible?

 

Thank you!

You can apply Audio Gain to clips in the project panel and this will apply to every instance of these clips on your timeline. However, this effect will not apply to the clips which are on the timeline already.

Thanks so much for your response. So to clarify, if I were to use that workflow, I would be locked into whatever gain I apply beforehand and could not adjust that later? (Unless I select the clips manually.)

ya know, it would take you about 5 minutes to test this behavior:  select a clip in the bin, adjust the gain, edit into a sequence, go back and adjust the gain in the bin and see if the clip in the timeline reflects the adjusted gain .  Why don't you try it and then help others by posting back with the results.

You're right. I can confirm this is the case. There appears to be way to adjust gain across all instances of a master clip in the timeline w/o manually selecting those clips. Would love for this to be proven false!
