When editing your videos, you may need to work with the audio tracks to enhance the experience. Editing audio tracks for your clips is now easier and more accessible. With the Audio View, you can focus on editing your audio tracks while your timeline remains intact.
For easier access, the tools, transitions, and effects that are available to you from the action bar, are now categorized into video and audio categories.

When you want to focus on audio tracks, click Show Audio View  at the top of the Expert view timeline (or press Shift+A).

The Audio view enables or disables audio functionalities for users who are focussed on audio such that all the tools are handy and available to use, with minimum impact to the timeline.

In Audio View, all audio tracks appear expanded while the video tracks are collapsed. This means that it is now easier to focus on editing your audio tracks while your timeline remains intact.

Master volume

The master volume control appears on the right side of the track. If your project includes particularly loud audio clips on multiple tracks, clipping (a staccato distortion) may occur. To avoid clipping,drag the level control down to reduce the volume of the entire project.

Note: You cannot keyframe these controls.

Audio recording

Click Add Narration to directly record onto a track. The Narration dialog is displayed and the recorded clip is placed on the target track. The Narration dialog can also be invoked from the Tools panel. Using the Narration option from the Tools panel will place the narration clip on the Voice track. You can than choose to move it to another track if required.

Solo track playback

Click Solo track to play a particular track without having to remove clips that overlap the track. When you select Solo for a particular track, the other tracks are muted and will not feature in the output.

Note: Enable Solo track for multiple tracks if you want to play them simultaneously.

Display style for video and audio tracks

Select a display style for video and audio tracks that best suit you, from the right-click menu options.

Note: By default, audio tracks are displayed as Half waveform while video tracks are displayed as First and last thumbnails.

Stand-alone audio clips are displayed in green while audio clips that are linked to a video clip are displayed in blue. When you unlink an audio track from its video, it is displayed in green.

Disable audio and video tracks

You can now choose to disable specific audio, video, voice, and music tracks by clicking the corresponding toggle icons. Tracks that are disabled will not be present in the final output that you create using the Export & Share panel.

Video and audio categories

For easier access, the tools, transitions, and effects that are available to you from the action bar, are now categorized into video and audio categories.


When in Audio View, the Action bar opens up with Audio categories selected. You can choose to switch to Video categories and continue using the Video feature if required.

Beginning Premiere Elements 14, the Audio Meter will no longer be available. The Master Meter instead provides the functionality of the Audio Meter.
