Join Joe Godfrey for an in-depth discussion in this video Dialogue ambiance options, part of Final Cut Pro X & Logic Pro X: 2 Mixing Dialog, Music, and Effects.
- [Narrator] Sometimes you encounter dialogue lines … that for whatever reason, … just don't fit together well. … Maybe they were recorded on different days, … maybe a different technician, … maybe a different microphone … and they should sound similar but they don't. … So here's a trick to get them to sound more similar, … by putting them in the same space together. … So to do that we send them both to the same ambience … and now they have something in common. … Now I'm not completely convinced we need that … on these tracks, … but lets do it on these tracks, … so then you know how to do it if you need it. … So if we overlay the mixer on top of our main window … we see that we don't have an aux bus set up already. … So we could go through the process of doing it … but there's really no need to do that. … Let met type the letter X and make that go away. … Lets just pick our first dialogue track. … Lets close this triangle, … and we'll "Send" to "Bus 1" … and when we do that, … now let me lay that Xmixer again …
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.
