Publisher Comments:

Audio producer Jeff Sobel is your guide to the only professional audio post-production application designed specifically for the Final Cut editor: Soundtrack Pro 3. Working seamlessly between Final Cut Pro and Soundtrack Pro, you’ll master audio restoration and clean-up, build and edit multitrack projects, record and edit voice-overs and narration, and experiment with advanced mixing and effects.

Using footage from the hit TNT show Leverage and the gorgeous HD documentary OneSixRight, this step-by-step, Apple-certified guide starts with sound editing and mixing basics in Final Cut Pro, and moves on to the fine points of fixing audio files, working with the frequency spectrum, recording and editing dialogue, and spotting sound effects in Soundtrack Pro.
