Work with Limiters & Expanders
Limiters are used as a hard cut off for taming the peaks of your audio, while Expanders allow you to push or pull the audio signal at the top or bottom to give your voices more brightness or remove unwanted noise. In this tutorial you’ll learn how to work with both of these audio effects for making the voice tracks stand out in your mix.
Work with a Noise Gate
Final Cut Pro X’s built-in Noise Gate Effect is a great tool for quickly removing unwanted breaths and other audio transients in your dialogue. While it works wonders, it’s possible to go too far with the controls, and this tutorial will help you understand the best approach for achieving the cleanest voice tracks.
Work with a Denoiser
We’ve all had to deal with unwanted background noise and hiss in our voice tracks. You’ll learn how to work with a Denoise effect that will help you visually isolate, then reduce these distracting sounds.
Work with Space Designer
One of the coolest audio effects is Space Designer. You’ll learn how to record the reverb characteristics of any room then add that reverb to your voice tracks as an Impulse Response (IR), in the cases where the room or location is unavailable for your talent to record in.

Very clear and precise explanation and implementation of the basic but essential FCP X/Logic X plugins inside FCPX. Please check out first before you spend a bunch of money on audio plugins. I definitely would have saved some money if I had known.

This webinar taught me which tools I can use to address problems that commonly arise when working on jobs that utilize various locations, talent and mics. Even though I already learned about FCP’s Compressor and Channel EQ from previous tutorials, this webinar still shed some light on how to use them properly, as well as covering some effects that are completely new to me. Very informative-I’ll definitely be trying out some of these workflows in the future.

I missed the live webinar streaming at 2:30 am local time so was keen to get the replay. I don’t have formal training and use the built in FCPX tools for audio. This tutorial is like having the lights turned on dealing with the major issues I deal with in improving audio in my videos. It’s pretty thorough with a clear workflow. Thanks, Travis.
