Adapting Logic’s toolbar to work efficiently for audio post
- [Instructor] Now let's customize the toolbar…and the display.…So Control click somewhere in this gray area here,…and we get customize control bar and display.…So let's go through these four columns…and see what we want to change.…I don't find that I need quick help, really,…but everything else here I think is important,…and I would leave it, in the views column.…So, for…transport,…you may have your own preferences,…but I find that go to position,…play from beginning,…and play from selection…are the ones that are most useful to me.…
I don't need…play and stop, or the space bar,…record, I'm not going to be doing much of,…so those are the three important ones to me.…Now if we're sequencing it's very important…to see tempo and key and time signature…and other musical information.…For mixing,…let's change beats in project to time,…and there's a giant SMPTE clock,…that's pretty much all we need.…
If you find that you need locators,…then go to custom,…and you can take off…position, tempo, time, midi activity, and load meters,…
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.
