Product Description

From the Back Cover

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. Finally, you'll score a sophisticated multitrack montage sequence, and mix and conform it to professional standards. Whether you're a seasoned editor or just getting started, this book shows you how to use Final Cut Studio as an integrated package to produce superb audio and sound design.

HASH(0xb6020f9c) out of 5 stars Not much good with enclosed DVD that won't fully load May 29 2012
By Canada John - Published on
Format: Paperback
Was looking forward to tackling "Sound Editing in Final Cut Studio" Peachpit Press' book by Jeff Sobel but didn't get far. First task is to install the information and media files on the accompanying DVD. I tried (several times) but always get the message: "The Finder can't complete the operation because some data in 'The Blind' can't be read or written (error code-36)" I've just written the publishers. Hopefully they'll send me a preplacement DVD or show me how I can download the missing file (1.02 GB in size). If they do I'll accept their apology and the inconvenience, if they don't Amazon gets the book and DVD back and I'll look to places other than Peachpit in the future.

great book if you do the lessons, I only wish it was a little easier to navigate when looking for a specific function to apply to editing (to use as a reference text).
