    Does Avid have a Copy and Paste Attributes feature for audio?

    Lets say you change the volume of one audio clip to -15 db and you want to do that to the other 100 audio clips on your timeline. Doing that manually for each clip could take a long time. In Premiere/FCP you can right click on an audio clip and click copy, and then highlight a bunch of audio clips at once and paste volume attributes across all those clips at once. 

    Can you do that in Avid?

    The work around I'm using for now is to highlight all my audio clips at once holding down option and lassoing, then I right click on my lasso'd selection and click the mute feature.

    Mute the whole track? or with the audio mixer open you can apply gain changes between in and out points.

    Re: Does Avid have a Copy and Paste Attributes feature for audio?

    I tried what you just said. I made an in to out point across the whole timeline, and I only have tracks a3 and a4 selected. My curser just happens to be parked on ONE audio clip. I opened Audio mixer, and dragged down audio for A3 and A4 to -90 and it only changed the volume for the clip I was parked on, it didnt reduce the volume of all the other clips that are within the in-to-out points. It didnt work for me :( not sure what I'm doing wrong.

    After changing the level of the clip you are parked on, go to the hamburger menu at the top of the audio mix tool and select Apply Level In/Out.  (It might say "gain" or "volume" instead of "level" - I can't remember off the top of my head.)

    "Set Level On Track - In/Out" <--- That did it! :) 

    I made an In point at the very beginning of the timeline and an out point at the very end of the timeline. Then I highlighted tracks A3 and A4), then took one audio clip on my timeline (on Tracks A3/A4) and brought the audio down to -90 in the Audio Mixer. Then I went to the hamburger menu within the audio mixer and clicked "Set Level On Track - In/Out" and it made all of the audio tracks on A3 and A4 have matching audio levels of -90!

    Thank you so much!!

    You can adjust the pan across In/Outs as well using the same method, FYI.
