    Enjoying the Course

    I’ve been following along, applying some of the skills as I work on a low-pressure (no deadline) project.

    I got down to a mix down stage, using roles etc. I have a 2 minute music track, with a few seconds of voice at the head. I kind of made my own solution for dropping in the EQ Carve to allow voice and music to co-exist and play along nicely. It kind of worked, but I’m concerned this is a botch-job, and would be considered a little unprofessional, with a potential for phase. Here’s what I did: took the mix down track (essentially a compound clip) with audio tracks displayed using index and roles. Applied a Blade Cut at star and end of voice, created a cross fade at the music track blade points. Applied the EQ Carve to the music track. Essentially, the EQ Carve cross-fades in and out on the music track.

    Applause or throw rotten tomatoes?

    Your workflow does not sound bad. If you are worried about phase you could apply the EQ Carve to the entire Music Role. But because it is a role on a compound clip, and I can see the through edits, you have not changed the timing at all. Therefore there should not be any phase issues, everything should be lined up correctly.

    Thanks, Travis. Yep, I didn’t get any phase issues, but just seemed to be inviting them, using this method. Good on ya – and Happy New Year!
