Can't hear audio when importing in FCP.

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I've used iMovie for about and year and love it. But I keep doing more and more video work, so figured it was time to but Final Cut Pro. So I did. But when I import footage from my Sony Digital8 camcorder, I can't hear the audio through my iMac while importing. I have never had this occur when using iMovie. If I open up the LCD screen on the camcorder, I can hear the audio on the footage through the small speaker on the camcorder, though. Am I missing somthing? Thanks for all your help in advance!

    Believe it or not, this is by design. You're supposed to hook up an external monitor (or use your camcorder) to hear the audio. Strange, I know, and something I hope they fix.
