Chapter 13. Sound Tracks and MPEG Audio ... > Converting a Music Track to a Sound ...

Converting a Music Track to a Sound Track

You’ll rarely convert a music track to a sound track, but this technique is useful on a few occasions. For example, you may want to use a QuickTime editor that doesn’t handle music tracks. Or you may not like the way QuickTime lets you alter music tracks (see Chapter 14), preferring instead to convert the music to digital sound.

To convert a music track to a sound track:

1.
From the File menu, choose Export (Figure 13.24).

Figure 13.24. Choose File > Export.


A Save dialog box appears.

2.
From the Export pop-up menu, choose Music to AIFF (Figure 13.25).

Figure 13.25. Choose Music to AIFF.


3.
If you want to specify sound-format settings, click the Options button.

The Sound Settings dialog box appears (Figure 13.26). This dialog box lets you select sound-format options, such as sample rate and size. You cannot, however, pick a compressor when you are exporting a music track as AIFF.

Figure 13.26. If you click the Options button, the Sound Settings dialog box appears, allowing you to specify properties of the sound that will be exported.


4.
When you’ve finished setting sound options, click OK to return to the Save dialog box.

5.
Click Save.

Exporting the file may take a while.

6.
Open the exported sound file as described earlier in this chapter, using the Open Movie command in the File menu.
