Thanks for using the Video Editor!

This feature is available under the Custom Audio tab.

Add your audio file to the right hand pane by selecting the + button or dragging and dropping it. 

Then select the Audio icon in the bottom right corner of the audio tile that pops up. That will open a menu where you can adjust the volume of the clip, and toggle whether you want it to fade in and out. 

Hope this helps!

My vision must be slipping: I don't see an "audio" icon in the lower right hand corner. I clicked on the square box in the exact corner, to the right of the date/time info. But I don't see anything remotely like an "audio" icon.

Hello Jakubw78, click Custom Audio in the top of the screen to add audio tracks. The fade in and out is available for audio tracks added there, and is what is depicted in my previous screenshot.

If you are trying to fade out a video (possibly so, from your screenshot?) you could actually achieve this by importing the video in Custom Audio as an audio track, then selecting fade.

The Video Editor does not currently have an audio ducking feature as you describe. Here are two potential workarounds:
- Make the background music quieter throughout so your speaking can be heard

- Use Custom Audio to add the same piece of music several times. You can trim very precisely by selecting a card on the storyboard to move your playhead, and then back in Custom Audio, drag the music trim handle to snap to the playhead location. Once you have the music in segments you can control the volume of each individually.

Hope this helps.

No, there's no way to access the background music as an mp3 somewhere on your computer--it is programmatically assembled based on the length of your video! 

One idea for a workaround is to export a video of the same duration with that song as background music, then import that video in custom audio.
