Forum Question: Audio Adjustment in Detached Audio

So i am making a video and and I have detached the audio so i can have part of the audio overlapping a silent video clip. In the background during the entire movie, I have a song playing. When the talking part begins, I would like the song to be reduced to like 25%. So I have gone into the audio adjustments of the talking clip and next to ducking, adjusted the sliding arrow to 25% and made sure the small box was checked. It seems to not only be adjusting the the music to 25% but the voice as well. In other parts of the movie it worked fine so I know this is possible but I can not seem to get this specific audio clip to work. What is causing this?

    Instead of using ducking, adjust the audio exactly as you want it. If you have iMovie 11, there are a lot of new audio features. You can see them in this episode:
