  • Having mastered the workflow to separate the tracks into separate folders for each take with appropriate naming conventions (tedious but workable) I was now wondering how others are handling transfer to Final Cut Pro X and/or Logic Pro X. Do you guys convert the audio to 24 bit using a third party app like Audacity, take it into Logic Pro X, mix and then export a bounced stereo track to Final Cut for synching or do you take it into Final Cut, synch, and then roundtrip to Logic using XML? I'm having some trouble getting an exact synch with multi-tracks in FCP. Just wondering what others are doing.

  • You can also use the free version of PreSonus' Studio One DAW software. It natively understands 32-bit floating-point audio files, then you can export from there.

    Thanks. I'll check it out. Does it have any advantages over Audacity?

  • Haven't used Audacity in a while, but I remember its UI being somewhat less than obvious. Biggest problem I've found with most Open Source apps is that the interface design is done by coders, not UI experts.

  • I've been using Touchmix SET (developed by a forum member) to manage my files.
    It works GREAT! You point it to the folder on your QSC hard drive/thumb drive and tell it what to name the tracks and where to store them and you can choose No conversion, 16-bit, or 24-bit conversion and it converts them on the fly and they end up nicely named and sitting where you told them to go. Wonderful tool!

  • That would be great if we were talking about Windows machines. There's no Mac Version yet.

    Besides, I'm increasingly leaning towards just doing the whole session in Studio One, as it handles 32-bit Broadcast Wave files natively, with no problems.

  • I'm getting ready to do some video shoots using the TM-16 and a Zoom Q8. Is FCP the recommended editor, or will iMovie do the trick? If I need to buy FCP I will, but would prefer to keep that $300 in my bank account :shock:

    Depends entirely on what you're trying to do. If you haven't used either, start with iMovie.
