Playback volume in Premiere Pro

Is there any way to change the playback volume levels independently in Premiere Pro--I don't mean changing levels in clips or mixing--I mean simply a basic volume control contained within the application. as for example you would have on VLC media player?

Right now, I am listening to Lynda.com tutorials, and if I get the volume comfortable on Lynda, I find the playback in PP very loud.  If I lower my system volume to a comfortable level for Premiere Pro, I will have to have the independent Lynda volume to max, and it is still very soft.  No amount of jjigging around seems to make both comfortable.

Is there a feature I don't know about?

Thank you for your thoughts.

No, there is no 'general' volume control for PrPro ... nor would I expect there to be. Sound being a natural part of the editing process, and many of us setup the sound systems in our suites and computers for proper 'volume' or loudness levels and leave it there.

In lynda, as in most players, there is that volume control ... what do you have that set for? If you can lift the value there, that would perhaps solve your issue.

It surprised me to see that Resolve 14 has such a feature.  I actually find it quite useful, especially for the Source Monitor which isn't affected by the timeline audio adjustments.

I agree. Aside from the Lynda thing, clips in the source monitor can seem very loud compared to the timeline for various reasons, and if you are working back and forth between the two, it would be nice to not have to change the master computer volume all the time. This is especially true if you are using headphones.

For me it makes a difference in volume is I use MME or Asio setting.

If I have it set to asio the volume is very high within Pr.

Hi Anne,

In looking through the preferences, I don't see anywhere that offers playback volume adjustment.

Either this Correct answer is wrong, or I'm misunderstanding. At least in Windows, you can just right click on the volume icon in the system tray (bottom right corner) and hit Volume Mixer. There you have independent master volume on a per-app basis. Take Premiere down a notch if you like. Just as people have mentioned, make sure you have a good sense of your actual output levels in Premiere! Keep your eye on the audio meters; I always have mine visible while cutting. Of course the wave forms of the clips are a clue as well.

I'm sad this was never resolved. I work with videos in an industrial setting and my actual video is soft with voiceover and background music. My clips (I usually have about 100 per project) are always clipping and when I have to scrub through one it's blaring if I don't remember to lower the volume and turn it back up when I'm listening to the timeline. Sound is part of the editing process but how does that solve the problem of source clips being way louder than our timeline?

This could depend on the sequence audio track types and settings. Though I've never had any clips that were dramatically louder in say the Source monitor prior to adding to a sequence and compared to playback after being dropped on a sequence.

If I am interpreting correctly, my workflow is significantly different than yours. I create training videos on how to work on machines and 99% of my final audio is created in post. Sometimes I will use the sound of a machine running or some horns from lift trucks but generally the audio in my source clips are terribly loud and clipping (it's factory ambient noise). So I usually use the video clip without the audio and create a voice over with some music. I also like to listen to the source clips to what we were talking about because it's kind of like "notes" to where I am at in the filming and helps me understand the task I am filming. I can't imagine this workflow is so unique for Adobe to have overlooked how to preview very loud files more quietly.
