    You need to make sure you're sound is at the native DV resolution: AIFF, 16bit, Stereo, 48khz. Otherwise you'll have to render everytime you make an adjustment. The easiest thing to do is use iTunes to convert your audio to this setting. What type of file are you viewing? Is it an .mpg, .mov, etc.? Final Cut Express works in real time with raw DV footage only.

    do you have quicktime pro? if so, export the audio seperately at the correct bit rate and settings and use the new file. if not, you can make the conversion directly inside final cut express. it's all in the manual.
