Exploring a Limiter and Logic’s new real-time Loudness Meter on the Stereo Output
- [Instructor] Now it's time to talk about levels.…So I'm going to make a composite mix,…that means that the dialogue music and effects…are all going to be in one track at levels that I chose,…and I'm going to hand that back to my editor…and probably, hopefully, the editor's going to love it…and put it in against the picture, and we're done.…In the next movie we'll look at…an option that we need for flexibility,…but for now we're just going to do…a composite mix with all this dialogue,…all these sound affects, and all this music.…
Now because I'm doing it that way,…let me switch to number two will switch me to my mix window.…Because I'm doing it that way, I have the option of…putting a compressor or a limiter, or a loudness meter,…on my stereo bus.…Now I just wanted to point out that my output,…my master output, is minus eight,…just so I don't blow the doors off this movie…that I'm making for you, when I do playback.…

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.
