- [Instructor] Don't worry, our mix is safe, … and we'll get back to it in a minute. … We're not mixing our project for TV, … it's not an ad, and many of you aren't in the U.S., … but I did want to devote one short movie … to showing you Logic's loudness meter. … Years ago, people complained that the audio for the ads … was always louder than the audio for the TV program. … So in 2010, the US Congress … passed the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation Act, … the CALM Act. … So if you need to comply with those standards, … Logic has a handy tool for that. … So in your stereo bus, … after any other processing you might have, … like this limiter, Add, Metering, … Loudness Meter, and Stereo. … As I'm recording this, Pro Tools and iZotope … also make loudness meters, … which work by analyzing your finished mix. … So you would have to bounce and then import … the audio into those apps, determine what needs fixing, … and then go back to your mix and fix it. … So, the beauty of Logic's loudness meter …
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.
