Move your Final Cut Pro X projects to the audio suite simply and quickly. X2Pro Audio Convert takes your FCP X XML and creates an AAF with embedded or referenced audio media which Avid Pro Tools can open as a session, delivering seamless integration between the two applications..
The AAF has also been successfully imported into Steinberg Nuendo, Merging Technologies Pyramix and Apple Logic Pro X.
X2Pro Audio Convert is a cutting edge conversion application for delivering FCP X projects for audio finishing, it is easy to use directly from within FCP X.
Taking advantage of the innovative Roles features in FCP X, X2Pro allows you to choose how these are converted to tracks; their order, packing and whether they are included, allowing sound designers to start working immediately.
Media can be embedded in the AAF (and trimmed with handles to minimise file size) to create a single, simple to transfer, file. Alternatively the AAF can reference external media which is ideal when FCP X and ProTools have access to the same shared storage.
Those who do not need the advanced functions of referenced, trimmed media, or close control of the conversion of Roles, can look at the cost effective X2ProLE.
X2Pro faithfully translates your audio timeline along with L-cuts, J-cuts, transitions, levels, automatic gain and fade handles, as well as the incredibly powerful FCP X compound clips. Transitions are converted into linear cross fades. Audio media can be any QuickTime supported audio, non-PCM audio is converted to PCM at either 16 or 24 bit.
R3D media is supported.
Multicam Clips are effectively translated taking across the audio of the selected angle.
X2Pro gives a clear warning when it comes across elements of a sequence which it cannot translate such as time maps and effects.
We recommend rendering an off-line or proxy version of the flattened video and exporting that if a reference is needed within Pro Tools. Only audio media is translated by X2Pro.
• FCP X, 10.0.4 or later and XML from 1.1
• X2Pro runs on OS X El Capitan (10.11) and later
• Pro Tools v7.0 or later for AAF import (not LE versions, v7 and v8 require Digitranslator for AAF import)

Better warning message when encountering problematic media.
Notes et avis
From FCPX to ProTools and others DAWS
After having sent two feature length documentaries to audio post-production, I can say that this app meets the expectations we can have for this kind of workflow.
Since last version, we can choose to reference or embed audio files, consolidate media with handles…etc.
The file created is AAF, not OMF.
In FCPX if you set a role for each audio channel, then audio engineer will retrieve named-tracks in ProTools based upon the roles names.
It's way better than that we had in FCP7.
Also good to know, support team is great, you can check the forum on their website for more.
indispensable pour mixer du FCPX sur ProTools
Super, quand on monte comme moi des reportages TV sur FCPX il faut cet outil pour pouvoir fournir les fichiers aaf indispensables pour le mixage de l’émission sur ProTools. Mon seul regret : tous les filtres et corrections de niveaux audio faits dans FCPX ne sont pas pris en compte dans la sortie caf, le mixeur doit donc tout reprendre à zéro. J’espère que les prochaines version de X2Pro changerons cela.
