FCP X destroys my audio
on Feb 12, 2014 at 5:30:45 pm

This is now the second time that FCP X has burned me on audio. I have a 5 min. project with audio sources coming from a 4-channel WAVE file (mono mic tracks) and stereo music cues. Stereo mix.

Everything sounded fine through the mixer, but it was impossible to get an export that was clean. Every export attempt resulted in a file with an intermittent crackle/distortion on the right channel. And at peak volume! Tried various audio/video and audio-only formats. All the same.

I ultimately had to download and install Soundflower, so I could hijack the audio stream. This let me record the audio playing in real-time using QTX. I then resynced that audio file audio and the video mixdown in FCP7 and then exported a clean version. Sheesh!

I still have no idea what's causing the crackle in the export and is therefore still a problem. I've pretty well lost trust in anything FCP X does with audio.
