Refining the volume and EQ of the music supplied by the editor
- [Instructor] It's finally time…to tackle the music in our mix,…so I've un-muted the regions…and set up a Cycle starting just before the music,…and let's just see how it lays at this volume.…- (speaking foreign language)…- "The crimes I have committed were not against God:…"they were against evil men."…(gloomy music)…- (speaking foreign language)…- "Murder is when you kill a human being.…"These were not human beings."…(woman whimpering and screaming)…- (speaking foreign language)…- "The humiliation you feel when you are punched…"and thrown facedown on the floor..."…(woman screaming and sobbing)…- (speaking in foreign language)…- [Instructor] All right, so we're losing…her last line there, completely.…
So, you know, I do have the option of equalizing--…That's the, really the wrong word to use.…I'm normalizing the volume.…I guess, what's the right word?…Leveling the volume, so that this region…is as loud as that region,…and this region gets softer...…To match that region, except that I see that…my editor has made some edits in the music,…
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.
