I am editing a series of concert I filmed. I noticed when I am making cuts (multicam project), that there is a noticeable click in the audio. I have attached a small portion of one of the concerts. At a loss here, would appreciate any help.
I appreciate the workaround. However I was hoping someone would have an idea of what is causing this. This issue comes in that I cut out dead time during the performances so it is not as easy as taking the first audio clip and expanding it across the timeline. Plus with about 60 groups, this is a tedious step I don't think I should have to be doing.
Yes it will make the sound at the edit points, but it won't make the sound every time you switch in the multicam clip, so you get a lot fewer times presumably where you have to cross fade. If you're cutting so often that the expanded audio doesn't help you, then it's not worth it for you and you will have to cross fade the overlapped audio wherever the problem is heard.

Yeah, I kind of thought that was a bit of a glaring omission on their part.

This is not isolated to multicam. Depending on what the audio waveforms are like on each clip, It may happen anytime you cut audio.
There are available commands to toggle audio in/out fades, and you adjust the default duration of these fades under Preferences>Editing>Default Fade Duration. You can easily program a shortcut key to do this with a single keystroke. See under menu Final Cut Pro> Commands>Customize, and search on "fade".
