Soundtrack Pro


(Music playing.) Hi! I'm Rick Allen Lippert and I'd like to welcome you to Soundtrack Pro 3 Essential Training. Soundtrack Pro is a powerful audio editing and creation application that is part of the Final Cut Studio Suite. You can use it by itself to create music and other audio projects or you can use it in combination with Final Cut Pro to enhance your video projects. In this course, I'll show you how to round trip from Final Cut Pro to Soundtrack Pro and back to perform a very cool noise reduction of a single audio file and also to sweeten an entire sequence with a music bed, music loops and sound effects, using assets that come bundled with the app.

I'll cover the workflow, from setting up your system to the final mixdown and exporting. We'll explore recording and editing single take and multi-take voiceover recordings and we'll see how easy it is to create podcasts with Soundtrack Pro. As a 30-year video veteran and an Apple Certified Final Cut Studio Master Trainer, I'm excited to have this chance to show you how easy it is to make your projects sound the best they can. Now let's get started with Soundtrack Pro 3 Essential Training.

Q: In the “Introducing the editor” video, the instructor says to Ctrl-click on a sound clip in the Final Cut Pro timeline and select Send to > Soundtrack Pro Audio File Project. On my screen, the option is grayed out and cannot be selected. How can this be fixed?
A: It is possible that a problem occurred when the software was installed.  Uninstalling and then reinstalling the Final Cut studio could fix the problem.
