How to Add Custom Music to the Final Cut Pro Browser

How can you add your own custom music to Final Cut Pro so you can easily access it from inside the interface as you're editing a video project?


This video demonstrates the steps to set it up:

Once you have this set up like I show in the video, you'll be able to get easy access to all your own custom music files from within the Final Cut Pro interface, inside the Photos and Audio Sidebar.

I hope the information is useful to you!

Thank you Izzy. Used this method some time ago after watching this tutorial (or maybe an earlier one) and came back again just now to refresh my memory of the technique. Very useful, and works just as you have demonstrated so clearly. Thanks for all that you do for us - very much appreciated! Cheers John

FWIW, I did not see the alias folder inside FCPX until a subfolder had contents. Only a subfolder that has contents is visible inside FCPX, at least ver 10.4.10. I discovered this because, yeah, I was dumb enough to try adding a sound effects folder containing no sound effects.
