Ryan Green, a YouTuber & Audio Engineer joins Dylan Bates to demonstrate sound mixing in Final Cut Pro.
Audio quality is often neglected by editors when it comes to editing, so it is always good to see new tutorials on how to improve audio in Final Cut Pro.
In this new video from 'The Final Cut Bro' Dylan Bates (I'm thinking I need a nickname now) is joined by Ryan Green who runs through five FCP audio tips.
Now a couple of comments on this-
1) We have found that using the Loudness feature in the Inspector can mince the quality of voice, it is great for levelling out B-roll audio, but use with care. We much prefer to use the Dynamic Processor plugin for compression of speech.
2) The audio EQ plugins are great, but you can do the same without applying a plugin (and the processing overhead) by simply adjusting the graphic equaliser that is available for every audio clip in the Inspector. You can save presets too.
We do like the music EQ notch, we use that (using the graphic equaliser) on music that has a lot of guitars for example that can clash.
