 Audition on M1 does not currently support EUCON control surfaces or CEP extension panels. CD Burning is not available. For video workflows, these codecs are not currently supported in Audition on M1: DV, XDCamEX, FastMpeg, DNX, Sony F65, and Cineform.

Strip Silence

May 2021 (version 14.2)

Strip Silence allows you to identify and remove silent or inactive regions in recorded clips, without losing synchronization in multitrack audio. Use this feature for cleaning up voice recording, interviews, and preparing multi-track edits, such as podcasts or audio documentary content. Strip Silence parameters can be adjusted for unique scenarios, such as noisy backgrounds or different volume levels between participants, to easily identify and remove regions in the track that have no content, saving editors time. 

For more information, see Remove silences from your audio recordings.

New Loudness Meter

May 2021 (version 14.2)

The new Loudness Meter provides industry standard ITU-based loudness monitoring for broadcast, podcast, and streaming media content. The new Loudness Meter, which will replace the previous Loudness Radar, transparently measures program loudness for full mixes, single tracks, or buses and submixes. Presets support common regional loudness requirements, like EBU for Europe or ATSC for the Americas, while new presets ensure compatibility with online destinations, such as Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Netflix, and YouTube.
