Advanced Audio Mixing Techniques
The Larry Jordan webinar -- Improve Your Audio Using Soundtrack -- introduced the power that Soundtrack Pro brings to your audio. This session picks up where that session left off.
In this on-line training, we will send a Final Cut Pro project from Final Cut Pro to Soundtrack Pro for the mix then bring it back to Final Cut for output. This presents the entire workflow of audio mixing a project. We will cover sending projects between applications, reorganizing clips, labeling tracks, spotting sound effects, adding tracks and submixes, adding and modifying filters, setting levels, and exporting the completed mix back to Final Cut Pro for final output.
You should have a basic knowledge of both Final Cut Pro and Soundtrack Pro. If Soundtrack Pro is new to you, download #8: Improve Your Audio Using Soundtrack Pro to learn the interface. This session discusses the process of mixing. It does not cover audio conforming, and we will only cover a few audio filters in this session. We will cover both more detail in an upcoming session.
