“Help!,” read Tricia’s email. “Audio is a world of unmentionable demons and nowhere to learn it. Could you do a webinar on post-production audio workflow?”

We did better than that, we created three webinars and bundled them together to create our new Audio Secrets for Final Cut Pro X training.

In these three sessions, host Larry Jordan explains key audio terms, then shows how to apply them in Final Cut. The second class builds on this foundation and moves into advanced audio techniques, including audio filters and using Roles.

Then, when real audio power is required to either repair poor audio or create more complex mixes, the third session shows how to move Final Cut projects into Adobe Audition, repair audio, create a mix, and bring it back into Final Cut Pro X for final output.
