Problem with audio effects - Final Cut 7
on May 31, 2016 at 10:25:35 pm

Hello!

I'm currently editing a project on FCP7 and have a problem with the audio effects.
I'm trying to lower the pitch on certain clips but when I do some of them seem to fall out of sync or go completely silent.
What can I do to circumvent this?

if you lower the speed of the audio clip, it will also lower the pitch, BUT it will be a different duration (longer),
so maybe that's what made your clip go out of sync?

adding the Pitch Audio Filter should not affect sync
(actually i've seen it slip the sync by a frame on export)
this filter CAN NOT be scrubbed, so when it's applied, if you try to scrub the audio, it will appear to be silent
it can only be played in real time.

a tip for this filter:
it takes a few frames to settle in. the first few frames will sound scratchy and crackly,
so trim the clip back 12 frames, say, or a second,
and volume graph that extension down.

Lower the pitch in Soundtrack Pro. You should have it. Just export an aiff from it and cut it into your timeline. Done.

Dave, is the pitch effect in STP better than FCP?

ok i just tried it..
surprisingly, i think the FCP one is better.
much better in fact

I've always changed pitch in STP by making the audio clip's duration match the intended duration in FCP. Very good results. I've never used the Change Pitch effect, or whatever they call it.

i see.
i hardly ever use STP,
but i just tried using the Audio Stretching Tool.
could only make my file shorter not longer for some reason,
still it didn't sound as good as the FCP AUPitch effect.

but i think the OP wants to change pitch with changing duration.

It may also be possible the OP just needs to render the audio and the problem goes away. No mention made of rendering audio.
