Do you have music or audio file that you want to add to Final Cut Pro? The following steps will guide you on how to accomplish that with ease:

Step 1. First and foremost, get to know if your audio file is supported by Final Cut Pro. Compatibility is very vital for the music to play and the format used must be compatible with the program before you can proceed. Look at the audio formats supported by FCP and compare that with what your file has.

Step 2. Open Final Cut Pro from your computer and then click to open the "project library". You will locate the icon for that on the bottom-left side of the program. You can now freely navigate to locate the project that you want music added to and double-click to open.

Step 3. When you browse through the timeline, it will be easy locating the icon marked "music and sound" which you will click to open up the music or audio files. From that, choose the music file that you are going to use.

Step 4. Once you have noted the music file to use, click on it and then drag all the way to the timeline. Make sure it is positioned at the exact point where you desire it to play and then leave it free. Your project will now play together with the music and you can do some testing to be sure it is added successfully.
