Stretching dialog and SFX by applying Logic’s Flex Audio feature
- [Instructor] One of the powerful options…for modifying sound effects in Logic is elastic audio.…So it's this little icon right up in here.…I'm going to activate it on, not the music track,…on this track,…by clicking this button.…And instead of cloning…and cross-fading a sound effect,…I might just want to choose Flex Pitch,…and just drag it out.…
Actually I don't want to select both of them.…I want just this first one.…And let's see what this sounds like.…(buzzing)…All right, so you get that really granular thing…that you get by time stretching.…And so you're really going to have to experiment…to see if this is useful on any given sound.…(low rumbling)…And how much of it.…
So those are selecting the lengths now.…Because I selected the track,…it grabbed everything in the track.…I just want this one, and I'm going to make it…a little shorter.…(low rumbling)…So there are time and pitch adjustments…in elastic audio that you can make.…
And it's really available on any track.…We could do elastic audio on our dialogue.…Of course, it'll throw it out of sync with the picture,…
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.
