Multitrack clip improvements

New in Audition CC October 2017 

When recording punch-ins or layering sounds, clip Z-order is now maintained when selecting stacked clips so that smaller clips don’t get lost behind longer ones. Commands in the clip content menu make it easy to move clips to the front or back, and preferences allow users to customize the behavior. More improvements allow for symmetrical clip fades, or adjusting fade curves or duration independently.

For more information, see Arrange and edit multitrack clips with Audition.

Support for Mackie HUI capable devices

New in Audition October 2017 

This release of Audition includes support for the Mackie HUI control surface protocol. To control your mix, transport, and automation in Audition, use HUI emulation mode with almost all modern control surfaces.

For more information, see Control surface support.

Dynamic effects

New in Audition CC October 2017 

A new, modern version of the classic, but discontinued Premiere Pro Dynamics audio effect has been introduced to Audition and Premiere Pro. This simple, yet powerful plugin offers a compressor, expander, limiter, and noise gate in one easy-to-use tool.

For more information, see Amplitude and compression effects.

Other enhancements

This release of Audition lets you view session and media timecode overlays in the Video panel. You can also lock your video output to your external display.
