Join Joe Godfrey for an in-depth discussion in this video Bouncing the composite mix, part of Final Cut Pro X & Logic Pro X: 2 Mixing Dialog, Music, and Effects.
- [Instructor] Let's perform the bounce. … We have two options, you can look at the main window … and watch the audio files go by, … we could switch to our full mixer view … which we set up in Screen Set Two a while back, … or I can just X and overlay the small version … of the mixer and kind of keep an eye on the stereo out. … So I usually just look at the files … and keep an eye on the stereo here, … but if you did want to watch your overall levels … and your internal levels here, … watch them all at once, you could do that. … So I'm going to X my way back to the main window … and just kind of keep an eye on everything here … and play head back to the beginning, … We'll keep these meters up just because … it's a new thing to the mix … and I just want to kind of make sure … that I'm not seeing anything that distresses me here, … but I think we're ready for the bounce. … So I've already set my levels using the two pops … for start and end, … I'll go ahead and do it in real time, … it's only two minutes, so we'll do that. …
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.
