About Audio Output Presets
An audio output preset contains saved audio output bus groupings. Final Cut Pro
includes two audio output presets:
Â Stereo Monitoring: L+R: This is the default audio output preset. This corresponds to
your computer’s built-in headphone jack or stereo speaker output. However, you can
also use it with an external audio interface.
Â 5.1 Monitoring: L+R, C, LFE, Ls+Rs: This preset is used for monitoring completed
5.1-channel surround sound mixes you receive from applications such as
Soundtrack Pro. For more information, see “
