The latest update to the 2014 release of Adobe Audition CC provides a refreshed user interface with HiDPI support, enhanced Speech Volume Leveler, MediaCore support, and more.
Read on to learn more about the new features.
The user interface in Audition is refined and updated to provide an improved user experience across devices, including support for HiDPI Windows 8.1 displays.
With HiDPI support, Audition provides a higher resolution user interface that displays text, icons, and other user interface elements in greater clarity. Audition also supports resolution scaling factors, ensuring user interface elements scale optimally and continue to appear sharp and clear.
The new Target Dynamic Range option in Audition provides better control over volume leveling for spoken content.
In previous versions of Audition, amplifying speech also amplified any background noises. Target Dynamic Range helps you minimize background noises while amplifying and leveling only speech.
The Target Dynamic Range option is available under Effects > Amplitude and Compression > Speech Volume Leveler.
For best results with most content, specify a Target Dynamic Range value between –45dB and –60dB.
Audition is now a native MediaCore client resulting in expanded video file format support, faster loading time, and improved playback of video content.
This support removes Audition's dependence on the Dynamic Link Media Server (DLMS) to export and import video.
Audition can now import and export any format supported by the third-party MediaCore plug-in. Some of the newly supported formats include MXF, ARRIRAW, and Soundbooth ASND preview.
Audition can now read, modify, and generate iXML metadata.
iXML metadata is typically captured by audio recording devices or on-location audio recording software such as Metacorder for Mac. An important feature of iXML metadata is the ability to select and mark the best takes, and record on-set notes.
iXML is an open standard for location sound metadata. iXML supports data such as Project name, Scene, Take, Tape, and Timecode data, as well as custom comments.
You can now preview Soundbooth project files in the Adobe Sound Document (ASND) file format directly in Audition CC. This functionality mirrors Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Flash Pro allowing you to import the mixdown preview into the Waveform or Multitrack timelines.
