Book Description

10 Sep 2007 0321502663 978-0321502667 1
There’s no better way to learn to create professional audio files for film or video than this self-paced, Apple-certified guide to Soundtrack Pro 2—the only digital audio tool designed specifically for Final Cut Pro users. Audio producer Martin Sitter created all-new projects and completely revised this best-selling book to take advantage of the software’s new streamlined interface, surround mixing features, revolutionary ability to synchronize changes between picture and sound, and new dialog track tools. After introducing readers to the Soundtrack workspace and showing them how to work with audio clips and tracks, Sitter moves quickly to the essential task of audio restoration and clean-up. Readers then learn to arrange, edit, and mix multi-track audio projects; record and edit voiceovers and narration; and experiment with advanced mixing and effects. Each chapter presents a complete lesson in an aspect of sound design or editing, with step-by-step projects for you to complete as you go. DVD with project and media files included.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too basic 21 Oct 2007
By Vladimir Nagorniy - Published on Amazon.com
I found this book less informative than other Apple Pro Training Series books. You learn only basic moves (like, creating fades and moving clips around), but not an efficient work flow or any more trickier tips. In general, you learn pretty much nothing worth going from FCP to Soundtrack.

It seems like book was written with video editors in mind, and that's fine... why then explain us what the SMTP stands for? I'd rather read about the difference between four types of cross fade or other theory of sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars I don't have Final Cut ...can I play too?!! 30 Jan 2009
By Marc Balbirnie - Published on Amazon.com
This book is well written and the author manages to be both technical and witty at the same time. I have learnt a lot from this book and I would recommend it for anyone interested in upgrading their skills. The only issue is that I bought the software as a bundle with Logic Pro and not Final Cut and a lot of the lessons rely, not only on you being able to use Final Cut to a small degree, but primarily owning it (in order to render Soundtrack Pro projects from the supplied Final Cut projects). I am studying this course on my own and I am a composer not a video editor ... I don't have FCP and probably won't ever .... most inconvenient!

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't make sense why Final Cut Pro isn't in the requirements 28 Sep 2008
By C. Bledsoe Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
You know... Soundtrack Pro 2 comes with both Logic Studio and Final Cut Pro.

If you have Logic Studio, you cannot use this book (even though SP2 comes with it). Why? Because like mentioned previously, some of the lessons you MUST open with FCP before proceeding to the next steps. It would've been nice if there was an option for us Logic Studio users. Perhaps an extra media file on the DVD that has already gone through the FCP process? A work around? I thought that would be the case but obviously not.

I'm a bit frustrated that the book does not state that you NEED Final Cut Pro to do the lessons. Afterall, this is for Soundtrack Pro 2. Logic Studio is hardly mentioned.

I enjoyed the previous Logic Pro 8 Level 1 and Level 2 books, and I know this will get me going in SP2, but I need to get access to a computer with FCP.
4.0 out of 5 stars Soundtrack Pro 13 Jan 2013

I had absolutely no audio background when I bought the FCP suite that included Soundtrack Pro. This book helped me to learn enough to be able to make corrections in faulty audio that we filmed in church services. Soundtrack Pro is not an easy program to use, but this book helped me to do what I needed to do. I don't believe I would have been able to use Soundtrack Pro at all without this book.
4.0 out of 5 stars Apple Pro Training Series: SoundTrack Pro 2 5 Sep 2011
By Bruce E. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I specifically bought this books to learn to clean up audio... not mix new tracks ...unfortunately the majority of the book is about creating new material .... which I can not comment on as I barely read
For what chapters that do cover cleaning up audio it does a good job of covering the basics ... however it does not go into the advance level of cleanup that I had hoped.
This is a great start to audio clean up (definite recommend to buy) but it is not the complete subject and should be followed with an advanced level book.
