The process of selecting all tracks to make a composite mix
- [Instructor] So we're making our composite mix,…and I think the loudest spot is what I'm going to queue from.…(woman screaming)…And I've sort of been watching this…as we were working on it.…And the loudest piece is at minus seven and a half.…So I think that's a good spot.…If I wanted it to be exactly minus six,…I would go to my mix window, I would select everything…and that green instrument track…helps me find everything.…
I would just click here and including…the aux pauses, shift and click.…That highlights everybody.…And then I would kick this up from zero…to a DB and a half.…And that should've brought everybody up…the same amount.…Let's go back and see if the peak now…jumps from seven and a half to six.…
(woman screaming)…Okay, 6.02.…I think I'm okay with the .02.…So that's how you would do that…and just sort of finesse your overall level…while keeping all the balances between…the individual tracks the same.…

Award-winning sound designer Joe Godfrey has developed a system for handing off the dialog, music, and effects mix from a Final Cut Pro timeline to Logic Pro. Why Logic? Many of the tools the Final Cut editor is using began there, and Logic has great tools that can be applied to dialog, music, and effects, as well the final mix. There are some things you want to do—in the right order—and some common mistakes you want to avoid. This course covers them all. Learn how to import audio from Final Cut Pro X in Logic Pro X, fix any syncing issues, edit dialog to perfection, add special effects such as pitch shifting and automated EQ, enhance music, and bounce out the final mix, either as a composite track or stems that can be mastered separately.
