Huh? Split has nothing to do with the volume, all it does is split the event into 2 events on the timeline.. If you want to adjust the sound level of either of the split events, use the volume envelope associated with each audio event.

I am not sure if this is a question or a statement, but I think Marco_Raffa means that when he needs to drop the level of music during a VO, he will split the music at the beginning and ending of the vo and use the dissolve as the transition to lower audio. I used to this trick all of the time before I started using envelopes. It works very well.

If you highlight the section of the music you wish to 'duck' (attenuate), just drag the music track volume envelope downward, envelope points are inserted automatically. Takes about 5 seconds.. 10 if you are slow. The 'V' key shortcut, shows/hides envelope.

Many thanks to Dexcom, Dot and Raud, quick answers that solved my small but useful topic to my next question!
Good evening

rraud's method is another I use a lot. Very quick.

Yes, rraud's method is the one I use as well for ducking under VO.

@antbarron you have to insert an audio volume envelope.
