This would be handy

There is only one thing that I feel VisionLab really needs that it doesn't have. It would be nice if we could hear the audio from the clip[s] that you import into the program [VisionLab]. You know what I mean? It would help at times where I would want to sync an effect with a sound in the clip that your applying the effect too. Just a thought... unsure Other than that, I love VisionLab. I actually use it more than After Effects just because VisionLab is easier to use for me at least.

Generally that is kind of a backwards way to do it. It frequently works better to get the visuals done first, then add the sound to match them. This is fairly standard procedure in post-production work.

You are right, that the professional way is to add sound afterwards. But it is difficult if you're making a quick 2 minute movie that isn't worth doing a complete sound processing of.

I discovered recently that a sound option would be useful when I was editing a scene where a character shoots a gun. The gun in real life makes a "click" so it was necessary to add sound effects to disguise this. It was then necessary to synch up the flashes to these sounds.

It would be amazingly helpful if a sound preview could be created in Fxhome products, or a wave visual representation of the sound to synch up to.

Maybe the program could have an option where you could play the clip in real-time, pre-effects, and just be able to click and attach bookmarks to the places where you want effects, which are then findable in the effects timeline.

That is EXACTLY what I'm talking about.
