Using Audio Waveforms in Final Cut Pro

When video editing in Final Cut Pro, it is the audio that drives the pace of the project. In many cases it is easier to see the audio, than to listen to it. In the Viewer we can go to the audio tab (either stereo or mono), and see the waveform. This will for example let us set an in point right before the audio picks up.

If you need to see the audio waveform in the timeline, you can turn this on in one of three ways. The first, and most effective is the keyboard command. OPTION>COMMAND>W will toggle the audio waveforms on and off in the timeline. There is also a popup menu located in the lower left of the Timeline, that you can choose to Show Audio Waveforms. Last of all you can go into the User Preferences, and make the change in the Timeline Options tab. If you want the Audio Waveforms to always be on when you start a new sequence, you will want to check the Show Audio Waveforms box under Timeline Options in the Final Cut Pro User Preferences.
