    I have a video and a background song. I'd like to decrease the volume of the song during the video when a person is speaking. Can I do this in Vegas
    or do I do this with an external app?? TIA

    You don't mention which version of Vegas you have, but in most video editors
    this is usually accomplished by creating a target point on the audio
    timeline - usually by simply clicking on the spot where you want to make the
    change, then you can drag the level down. Remember to create another point
    and drag the rest back up, or the rest of your video will be quiet.

  3. I have a video and a background song. I'd like to decrease the volume of the
    Highlight the track you want to adjust by clicking on any event for that
    track or the track header on the left. Now you can apply a "audio volume
    envelope" by hitting shift+V or via the insert menu. You'll see a blue bar in
    the middle of the track. Double click on it to add keyframes. Drag the
    keyframes up and down to adjust volume.
    Right click to delete or change fade types.
    Make sure to keep your final output level below zero db.
    Check out the help menu, contents & index, search, type "audio track
    envelopes".
