Third‑party plug‑ins let you extend the already powerful effects provided with Adobe Audition. The application supports VST plug-ins on both platforms and Audio Units plug-ins on Mac OS.
Applying plug‑in effects is identical to applying built‑in effects. For information about plug-in features, consult the documentation provided by the plug‑in manufacturer.
To access third-party plug‑ins in Adobe Audition, you must first enable them. By default, all third-party plug-ins are disabled. To optimize performance, enable only the plug-ins you plan to use in Adobe Audition.
If effects are being used in a multitrack session, close the session.
If a third‑party effect is incompatible, Adobe Audition adds it to an Unsupported submenu in effects menus.
