Do you know Multi-track?
is a method of sound recording that allows for the separate recording of multiple sound sources to create a cohesive whole. Multi-track became possible with the idea of simultaneously recording different audio channels to separate discrete "tracks" on the same tape.

Apple Aperture 3---works with a wide varity of videos formats, but not all QuickTime-compatible video formats are supported. It gives your photography the professional treatment it deserves, with more sophisticated tools to perfect your images and powerful ways to browse and choose your best shots. And now that Aperture is optimized for the Mac Book Pro with Retina display, it’s a whole new way to see everything.
