Join Joe Godfrey for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Final Cut Pro X & Logic Pro X: 2 Mixing Dialog, Music, and Effects.
- [Instructor] My partner in this title is Mike Towe, … who created the Final Cut companion to this Logic title. … We produced this title because we were convinced … that there were Final Cut editors … who wanted to do more of their audio post, … and want more tools than Final Cut offers. … We were also convinced that there are composers … who want to start doing more audio post, … and people currently doing audio post in another app … that are interested in moving to Logic. … So, you might be seeing Logic for the first time, … or you might be very familiar with it … in a musical context, but not for post. … So, we'll going to assume a basic understanding … of timeline editing and audio tracks. … I'm using Logic 10.3.1, running on Sierra 10.12.6 Beta. … So, you don't need a high performance, maxed out, … whizbang computer for this work. … If you're used to Logic 9 or older, … Logic 10 will look very different to you, … it's a complete overhaul. … Our setup would accept audio … from any of the exchange formats, AAF, OMF, or XML. …
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.
