    The beep means that you have to render the audio via Menu Bar > Sequence > Render.

    Or you convert the .mp3 file to an .aiff or .wav file via QT Pro, as .mp3s are compressed and .aiff and .wav files are not.

    Btw, you could also take a look at the manual, as my answer came up first via searching for "beep" in the FCP. See page 628.

    Use QT or iTunes to convert the MP3s into 16bit/48k AIFFs.

    Yeah, convert to .aiff, FCP doesn't like MP3s too much. command (open apple) R will let you render

    If you have the latest Compressor, you can make droplets for fast conversions. I made one to convert audio files to AIFF 16/48.
    I uploaded it at http://www.sendspace.com/file/t632zf in case you want to use it.
