X2Pro Audio Convert integrates Final Cut Pro X into the professional audio workflow

X2Pro provides a smooth workflow between Final Cut Pro X and Avid Pro Tools, allowing users to take full advantage of the functionality of these world-class products now and in the future.

X2Pro integrates Final Cut Pro X into professional audio workflows, converting the exported Final Cut Pro X XML into an AAF file, which Avid Pro Tools can open as a session, delivering seamless integration between the two applications.

Using the enhanced metadata in FCPXML 1.4 from Final Cut Pro X, X2Pro provides a high fidelity conversion to a Pro Tools session, with support for audio gain and key frames.

Taking advantage of the innovative metadata-based organizing features in Final Cut Pro X, unlimited numbers of audio Roles in Final Cut Pro X are converted into Pro Tools tracks, allowing sound designers and mixers to start working immediately.

Marquis Broadcast, specialist in content workflows and media integration software, today announced the launch of an enterprise version of X2Pro, its cutting edge conversion application for delivering Final Cut Pro X projects to Avid Pro Tools for audio finishing. The enterprise solution will be available direct from Marquis for large numbers of users.

    With X2Pro Audio Convert I'm finally confident that my projects transfer as they should to Audio Post.
    X2Pro´s smart use of Audio Roles keeps my audio well organized all the way to Pro Tools.

    Jari Innanen, Editor/Sound Designer

  • man2

    I chose X2Pro for a short film I was working on that needed a lot of audio work and it easily handled my project’s
    more than 32 audio tracks. I think that all professional editors who use Final Cut Pro X and Pro Tools should get this plugin
    — it's an essential part of my workflow.

    James Gribbins, Director/DP of Gribbins Films

    When Electric Entertainment transitioned to Final Cut Pro X, we needed to re-engineer our whole workflow.
    X2Pro became the missing puzzle piece that allowed us to work with Apple's software and still maintain the highest quality production standard. X2Pro's ability to work with referenced media greatly increases our efficiency in moving from FCP X to Protools.

    Brian Gonose, Electric Entertainment

    I love X2Pro. Editing in FCPX has changed the way I work but it's your product
    and others like it that have genuinely made FCPX a viable option for me.

    We are finishing up our first feature film that we cut on FCPX and as we moved into our sound mix X2Pro was fantastic.
    We were lucky enough to take our audio mix to Skywalker Sound and everything about the workflow has been really great.

    Geoffrey Orthwein, Producer • Director • Editor • Colorist

  • man1

    We needed to send an AAF to the mixers and we had to come up with a solution quickly. I asked around,
    and X2Pro was the number one recommendation from every editor I spoke to. I now understand why.
