After more than two years of regulary updates/upgrades of FCPx ... why is there still no good audio sweetening possible with FPCx, if you compare it with Premiere Pro & Audition. Yes, I know you can work with Logic Pro X .. but it's a way around. Is it so difficult for Apple to understand that a good NLE like FPCx has a need of a dedicated audio editing tool like it was with Soundtrack like with FCP7 in the past? Or is there a huge upgrade in the pipeline in the near future. I think, it would level up FCPx in the professional world.

And what exactly are you missing in FCP X regarding audio sweetening?

I think he means "mixing", which means a "mixer". Sweetening tools (improving the quality and shaping the character of sounds) is there in abundance. But yes, we do lack a mixer.

Although the round-trip to Logic Pro X is super easy now, very efficient, and LPX is super easy to learn and use, especially since the latest release.

Hi, If you compare it with Audition ... or with Soundtrack (FCP 7)... Only adjusting levels is not pleasant to use in FPCx. And so many other things. When you want to mix on 5 tracks or more .. FCPx is not the right tool for it. So, there is a need of additional software that corresponds with FCPx in a direct way.

It's very strange that there is a need of a roundtrip to get a mixer and almost endless tracks. Trust me, I'm a real believer in an NLE like FCPx although, everyday I met editors who don't like FCPx.. but there is one thing that is not just build in like it should be for professional use : and that's the audio part in FCPx. But, we hope ... ;-) I have LCPx, but it is more a music composer than an audio editor .

"... If you compare it with Audition ... or with Soundtrack..."

You can't compare a dedicated video editing app, with dedicated audio editing apps. That's apples to onions. STP required a round trip, as does Audition. I must be missing the point.

What do you mean by audio editor? Do you know about its File Editor functions? It is a fully professional DAW, which is meant for music recording, mixing, mastering.

I'm sure Apple will give us a mixer in FCPX, and when they do, it will be done right, not fast. A lot goes in to these things. If it were easy, I'd think we'd have gotten it already.

I have no issue now doing a round trip to Logic for my more serious audio work for my videos. But that said, 99% of my audio work for video is done nicely in FCPX. And a mixer would be nice to have. As long as it is implemented in the same manner as the other great tools Apple has designed in FCPX.

Fill out the feedback page, let Apple know what you'd like to see.

I’d like to have a Waveform monitor for audio like the Channel EQ give it and not only a Vu-Meter. It could take place in the "Video instrument" frame or be separated.
