Lesson 13. Mixing Audio Tracks > Mixing Tracks in Real Time

Mixing Tracks in Real Time

Now that you understand how to set keyframes and mix audio manually in the Timeline, you're ready to mix tracks in real time using the Audio Mixer tool. When you play the sequence, the Audio Mixer tool responds to your touch as you control audio faders to fade a track, or tracks, up or down. In the process of fading tracks, Final Cut Pro adds keyframes to the overlay line automatically, to reflect how and where you changed the sound levels. These keyframes are added to the Timeline when you stop playing the sequence. You can choose one of three levels of keyframe complexity. You will perform a mix using each setting.

Working with the Audio Mixer

You can access the Audio Mixer in two ways. One way is to select the Audio Mixing window layout, which incorporates the Audio Mixer into the interface. You can also choose the Audio Mixer under the Tools menu. This opens the Audio Mixer as a separate window that you can place wherever you like.
