Ask The Expert: How Can I Delete or Change Volume of This Small, Tiny Audio in Audio Mix Menu?

QUESTION: I have a tiny bit of sound on one of my tracks which I want to remove. It is so tiny, that nothing happens when I click on it... I cannot even select it. Is there some other way to get rid of it? It's a serious issue because it interferes with an entire track.

ANSWER: This tiny piece of audio is what Casablanca refers to as a 'skinny'. And it's a skinny because (usually) it is small relative to the length of the video scene above it on the Storyboard.
It is difficult to explain in words so I have prepared a short tutorial video to deal with this topic. This should help:

Length 5:26
