It would be nice to increase the volume of an entire media clip without having to adjust each audio point

In v8.6 I could adjust the volume of an entire media clip by increment.  I could also adjust the volume of individual audio points in a media clip.  In v9 I can only do the latter.  That really hurts when you add a lot of media clips at a volume you think is good, make a bunch of edits (e.g., silence coughs and such), and then find out that the volume is now at the wrong level.

have you tried selecting all the audio clips then using the "gain" slider on the audio properties?

I'm interested in gaining understanding.  In CS8 I select 2 or 3 frames on the timeline, select the sound track, and change the volume.  The change may be to silence the section or, if there is a lot of background noise, reducing the percentage to near silence.

How does that now effect the entire track in C9?  Yes, I know I'm missing something!

I also think it would be a great idea, as sometimes we need to adjust visually the volume level matching another clip we have aside. If we had a lot of editing like the previous video from kayakman, we have to go and edit different portions. Something like pressing shift key while moving the green line up and down to adjust all audio on the same clip altogether would be just fine :)
