Lesson 5. Audio Sweetening > Bussing in Final Cut Pro

Bussing in Final Cut Pro

Many dedicated audio editing tools provide a feature called bussing that allows you to direct multiple tracks to a single special track where you can perform one effect that modifies all of the bussed tracks. For example, let’s say your show had several different shots that all needed to sound like they were coming through a telephone. You could apply an EQ filter to each of the clips individually, but if later you decided you wanted to change the “telephone” sound, you would have to go and adjust each clip’s filter setting separately. It would be difficult to tell which ones had the new or old version of the effect and it would be easy to miss one. Using a bus, you could apply the filter once and then any settings you changed would affect all of the clips together.

Final Cut Pro doesn’t specifically have this ability, but you can use the Nest Items command to achieve the same result.
