    Just got a Mac Mini and I have loaded FCP X. While there is a decent selection of effects, I haven't seen a ton of background music. Where apart from Jingles is there any additional audio

    Also wondering if it is possible to leverage the audio from iMovie, have it on the Mac Mini and the iPad. I like the one peppy one that is good for home movies with kids. Can't think of the name of it off the top of my head. There are some good options that I am hoping I can pull into FCP X.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Create a movie with the audio that you want in iMovie. Share it to the Media Browser. Open garage Band and import your movie from the Media browser. You will get separate movie and audio tracks. Delete the movie track, and share the audio to iTunes. It will now be available for FCP, depending on how you can add audio to FCP.
