2. In the Inspector, click the “Generate Music” button to launch Sonicfire Pro as a plug-in.

3. Select or Purchase the music you need inside Sonicfire Pro; the length is preset from the placeholder and Sonicfire Pro allows you to easily customize other aspects of the soundtrack such as the variation and the mood or mix of the track.When ready, click the “Send” button to import your customized soundtrack into FCPX.

4. In Final Cut Pro X, drag the newly imported SmartSound Music Clip onto the
existing SmartSound Music Placeholder. There you have several options to
manage your new soundtrack with your video.

SmartSound’s plug-in also offers an XML import capability for more detailed work using
Sonicfire Pro’s powerful timeline features.
