It’s a fact: Video editors work with sounds as much and sometimes even more than they do with images. That’s why knowing the ins and outs of audio editing is so important when working with any video editing system.
Fortunately, Avid has packed Media Composer 6 with lots of professional sound manipulation tools. In this tutorial, Jeff Greenberg shows you what audio in MC is all about! He starts out with a zoomed-in look at tracks and goes over the various display options. You’ll learn how to build an efficient audio workflow by using multiple tracks in the MC timeline.
Jeff continues with a deep look at the mixer: you’ll get a primer on audio mixing, panning and how to adjust clip gain. With the mixer demystified, you’ll expand your audio knowledge by learning about fades and cross-fades, as well as keyframing and automation of the audio clips on your timeline.
The final section is all about adding audio FX: You’ll learn some EQ-ing techniques and discover the powerful AudioSuite plugins that are included in the MC6 package. So join Jeff as he demystifies sound in Media Composer 6.

It's great to know that MacProVideo breaks it down so easy for us — those who want to us the Standard NLE of the movie industry. I am definitely enjoying this. I am later hoping to see how we can tie Media Composer with Pro Tools.
