My Voice is Drowned Out By Music?

  • Hi. No matter how much I lower the music, it always drowns out my voice.  How do I correct this?  

  • The volume controls in the voiceover and music track do provide a great deal of flexibility. You can maximise the volume on one and minimise the other to create quite a contrast. If you are still struggling to find the right balance it could be that the voiceover you have recorded is quite quiet or that the music track selected just doesn't work well with voiceover. 

  • Hi Thanks for the reply.  There aren't any volume controls for the voice over.  I record mine with an AT2020 mic.  Do you mean I should turn up the volume on my speaker as I record my voice over?  I see the control volume for the music though.  

  • Once you have recorded your voiceover (or imported it) there is a large volume control slider. 

    But yes you could also turn the volume up on the input Microphone when recording the voiceover as well

  • Hello I have the same problem. I record my voiceover in Adobe Audition and if I increase my decible level when recording than I have too much distortion. I record at a -6 decible level which is about as far as I want to go.

    Is there some way to make the background music have more of a range? The minimum level is still very high for all the projects I work on.

  • Can you export the project as a .scribe file and attach it here, along with your so we can see your audio settings?

  • Hi Mike,

    I went and downloaded my own music which helped. And I overwrote the original.
