I a editing a video and I want to add some sound effects ie by some places add some small Bits of audio. Is there built in audio files in fcpx like in iMovie? Or do I need a plug-in? And if that is the case, what plugin?

Thank you


Make sure you do “Download Additional Content” under the Final Cut Pro menu. Download and install if you haven’t.

Left top corner next to the Library Sidebar icon is the Photo and Audio Sidebar Icon. When you in this sidebar you can find “Sound Effects” with lots of sounds you can use for free.

  • Doesn’t that reform the sound of people speeding? If yes, I don’t mean that. I mean sound like a peep or something longer or else – BSM Mar 30 '20 at 18:49
  • You can search in it and always alternate what is in there to fit your needs. – German Dude Mar 30 '20 at 18:53

  • I want to have some sound by a specific part of the video, but fcpx only allows me to put the sound effect by the whole video – BSM Mar 30 '20 at 19:19
  • You can search on the top of the sound effects column. – German Dude Mar 30 '20 at 19:24
