Just tested my brand new iMac 27" 2017.
Radeon Pro 580
8 GB ram
512 GB SSD
Result: 19 seconds
Have you tried to right click on the clip and choose open in timeline?
There is a MS AU plugin for the Zoom H6 made by Zoom: www.zoom.co.jp/products/h6/software/
Unfortunately it is only 32 bit and therefore it will not work in FCPX. Let's hope they release af 64 bit version.
The are many differences between any old Mac Pro and the new Mac Pro. One of them is the Intel AVX instruction set. FCPX uses this when available.

Received my iMac 27" with 5K retina display today.
BruceX exported to ProRes 422 = 35 seconds.
8 Gb ram (Will upgrade to 24 Gb tomorrow)
512 Gb Flash drive
4.0 Ghz Core i7
AMD 295X 4 Gb
Amazing display by the way!
MsJustine, we have a term here in Denmark that roughly translated says something like this: "Everybody wants development, but nobody wants change".
I would definitely put you in that group
Funny thing is that you already have a scrolling timeline if you press the "K" and "L" keys at the same time to play the timeline in half speed.
After importing the clips in FCPX you could try to apply a Custom Name preset. That gives you the option to add "date modified".

I have a MacBook Pro 15 mid 2011 Core i7 with a 1 GB graphics card (and AVX). And FCPX runs fantastic on this machine. Although i haven't tried with any Red 4K footage. But did try 4K h.264 from a GH4 and that worked fine without optimized media or rendering.
So you should really consider upgrading to a newer Macbook
Ronny. There is a difference. The 2010 MacBook pro does not have avx. Your Mac mini does.
Ben, I've tried to replicate this by changing a Library from managed to an external folder and then consolidate a project to that external folder. In my case, the media gets moved, NOT copied. I don't see any way to control this via the project settings.
