Using iTunes To Import 48K Audio

If you are using audio derived from different sources within your project, you must make sure that all of those files have a sample rate of DV quality such as 48khz. One way to make sure your sample rates are uniform is to use iTunes to convert your files to higher quality 48k DV files before you import them into Final Cut Pro.

Usually, when you insert a CD, iTunes will automatically launch, but if for some reason it doesn't, click on your iTunes icon to open it.

- In the iTunes menu bar, select preferences and a window opens.

- Click on the Importing icon in the top row of the menu bar to access importing options.

- click the Import Using menu and select AIFF encoder.

- In the settings pop up menu, choose the Custom option to access the AIFF encoder window.

- Select the option for 48khz as the desired sample rate in the drop down window. Set the sample size to 16 bit and the channels to stereo, then click ok.

- Click the Advanced icon in the preferences window.

- Within the iTunes Music Folder Location, create a new music folder for convereted files.

- In the song list window, click on the CD icon, which will in turn open up the cd contents > select the tracks you wish to import by checking the box next to it and deselecting the other boxes > click the import button.

The files will be saved in the folder that you created with the parameters that you have specified.
