Soundtrack Pro 3 helps you edit and mix faster than ever, with new multitrack editing tools and easy ways to fix common audio problems. Whether you're enhancing a single clip or crafting a feature-length soundtrack, you'll find all the tools you need to create perfect sound for picture.
What's New
Version 3.0.1:
  • Voice-level match: Sometimes the dialogue in a take you want to use is much softer or louder than the dialogue in the rest of your project. Now you can use the new Voice Level option in the Lift and Stamp tools to seamlessly match dialogue volume in just a few clicks. Soundtrack Pro instantly identifies and analyzes vocal content in both the lifted clip and the clip you stamp. It automatically adjusts the amplitude of the stamped clip to make the dialogue levels match.
  • Advanced time stretch: Stretch and compress audio with unprecedented precision using three Apple time-stretch algorithms as well as popular third-party plug-ins (sold separately). Native support for Serato Pitch 'n Time, iZotope Radius, and SoundToys Speed lets you seamlessly switch algorithms as you work. Use the Actions list to edit, suspend, and reorder time-stretch operations. A new option in the Time Stretch window lets you specify duration as a percentage with up to four decimal places. The window displays the number of samples added or removed as you stretch or compress audio.
  • Noise reduction enhancements: Two new features make it easier-and more precise-to repair and restore damaged audio with problems such as background noise or power line hum. The improved broadband noise reduction feature uses a high-resolution noise print to reduce unwanted background audio with even more precision. In addition, the Power Line Hum feature allows you to adjust the number of harmonics you remove when repairing recordings that have picked up hum from ground loops.
  • New multitrack editing tools: New features designed for audio post make it easy to save time and work with greater precision. Fly through editing using new commands for trimming and extending clips and adding fades. Record directly into the Multitake Editor, so you don't waste precious time with separate recording setups in the Timeline. The enhanced Normalize function lets you select Peak or RMS algorithms when making level adjustments. Use the new Waveform Zoom function to closely inspect low-amplitude audio clips right in the Timeline.
  • Faster navigation: Now you can speed through editing sessions using new, special-purpose commands. Work efficiently with new options for playhead scrolling, multiple concurrent snap levels for playhead and clips, user-definable nudge, and additional playback options for auditioning changes. Support for Multi-Touch trackpad gestures lets you zoom, toggle windows, and control playback without reaching for a mouse.
  • Related-file access: Previously when you wanted to evaluate an alternate take or mic placement, you had to root through the Bin or file system to find the files. Now Soundtrack Pro puts related audio files at your fingertips. Just Control-click any clip in the Timeline to call up a menu of related files. Soundtrack Pro instantly inserts any file you select while maintaining existing clip boundaries.
  • Improved application performance: Soundtrack Pro 3 has a vastly reduced memory footprint and a redesigned architecture for faster performance. Automatic Audio Unit validation on launch helps ensure that your third-party plug-ins function smoothly.
  • Clear gridline mapping: Gridlines in the Timeline intelligently adjust to your zoom level, so you always maintain a clear view of frame boundaries and clip locations.
  • Improved notification when exporting large files: Soundtrack Pro now notifies you when you attempt to export AIFF, WAV, and SDII files that are larger than the 4GB maximum allowed by these three audio file specifications.
  • iXML support: Soundtrack Pro now reads iXML metadata, which is used in audio field recording to capture details such as project name, scene number, take number, and notes. You can view the iXML metadata in the Bin, in the Details pane in the Multitrack Editor, and in the Project pane in the standalone File Editor. In addition, Soundtrack Pro uses iXML tags behind the scenes to help identify related files and display channel information in the "Replace with Related File" pop-up menu.
  • Spot Timeline clips to playhead/timecode: Easily shift clips across the Timeline by spotting to the playhead location or timecode value.
  • Record, Mute, and Solo shortcuts: Instantly access commonly used track controls using new menu items and keyboard shortcuts. Just type R for Record Arm, T for Mute, and Y for Solo.
  • Streamlined cycle region control: It's now especially easy to create and modify cycle regions. Create a cycle region by dragging in the lower ruler. To remove the region, simply double-click the lower ruler or drag the cycle region to zero duration. Deep integration with Euphonix control surfaces With new support for the EuCon protocol, Soundtrack Pro lets you experience tactile control through an attached Euphonix control surface, from fully equipped Pro Series consoles to portable Artist Series units (sold separately). Choose the Euphonix MC Mix for desktop mixing or select the MC Control, which now features a high-resolution touchscreen interface designed specifically for surround panning in Soundtrack Pro 3.
  • Improved DC offset detection and repair: DC offset can significantly impair audio quality through reduced headroom and related artifacts. Soundtrack Pro now detects and repairs audio with variable DC offset as well as fixed DC offset.
  • Quick Look support: New Quick Look support lets you instantly audition Soundtrack Pro Audio File Project (STAP) files from anywhere in the Finder. Just tap the Space bar to play the STAP file without opening Soundtrack Pro.
Version 3.0.1:
  • Voice-level match: Sometimes the dialogue in a take you want to use is much softer or louder than the dialogue in the rest of your project. Now you can use the new Voice Level option in the Lift and Stamp tools to seamlessly match dialogue volume in just a few clicks.

Those of you angry that you can't convert the songs you buy from the iTunes music store to mp3 to save disk space or can't use them in your home FinalCut movies should get Hear Your Music Anywhere 0.6. This free app converts the m4p songs that you buy to m4a format. With this app the digital hub lives on !!

I've heard a lot of great things about Reason, but "easy to get your head around" is not one of them.

Find your program, open the "content" (right button), then select Info.plist and open it with texte edit (yes that easy), then u just choose and change the limits.
IE for me its something like this
AELMinimumCPUSpeedDual
400
AELMinimumCPUSpeedSingle
400
AELMinimumQuickTimeVersion
6.1
AELRequiredCPUType
G4


Choose 300 mgz if u wanna or G3 u choose.

This report of a downloadable updater appears to be premature. Soundtrack 1.1 does not appear in Software Update yet. I have a fully working copy of Soundtrack 1.0.1, FCP 4.1 and latest versions of their companion apps.

I'm a newbie and have a few questions... could somebody tell me the difference between the following software: protools, logic, cubase, acid pro, reason, phrazer, sonicfire, cakewalk, nuendo?

which software should I pick if:
• i want to imput and record using a midi controller (keyboard) which plays virtual sounds from a sound library (one-shots)
• i want to be able to use actual recorded audio as well (such as a voice recording)
• i want it to have a virtual drum machine
• i don't have a need for a lot of effects and sophisticated features
• don't have a need for loops or loop editing

thanx

I agree with the previous bloke - Reason is a very good starter app. More than you could want, Been using it for ages now from a background of using Pro hardware and still haven't unlocked all it's features, but it's still easy enough to get started with. It's not the best at mixing together long audio tracks (e.g. vocals - unless I haven't worked out a better way - the loop machine in Reason is the only way of doing this), but I'm buying this app for that purpose - Get Reason! (You can also download a trial version (I thiink at www.propellerheads.se)

That tip about editing the plist works for my 400 Mhz G4. It was just below the requirements before (Says it requires 450mhz+). I changed it to 400 min. in the plist and all is well - runs perfect - I don't know why it doesn't support it by default (It's not slow at all).

But, when I tried to change the plist "Processor Type" to G3, it didn't load...so it might be a G4 min. in contrast to what the poster below said. Anyways, should at least work on any G4.

I'm dissapointed that the program does not support analog audio inputs. Kills its vocal capibilities.

Warren, your iTunes app will play .aif files---just drag and drop them from the desktop to anywhere inside the iTunes window (preferably your main Library list) and wait a few seconds.

Then if you want, you can convert the .aifs to .mp3s by highlighting them and selecting 'convert to MP3' from the menu.

Unfortunately, this program only works on a G4 or higher running mac OS X (10.2.5 mind you). I had to spend about $130 updating my OS, but I guess I would have to do that at some point.

The program in itself is great, though. It's like a cleaner version of ACID for windows. It also has a way better automatic transposer. My only complaint is that after I edit an AIF file in Peak, it causes some kind of error and won't re-open in Soundtrack.
