On the right side of the screen, there is the “Entries” column under which you can find all of the sound configurations that you have assigned and used within a specific Volume Schedule.
As a next step, click on the “+Add” button, and a new window appears called “New Event”. Move the Volume slider to choose the Sound output of your players (as a percentage).
