Learn about new features and enhancements in the March release (version 14.0) and September release (version 13.0.10) of Adobe Audition.


Adobe Audition is a powerful application for recording and mixing audiopodcasting, and sound effect.

Insert mode in Waveform editor

March 2021 release (version 14.0)

The new Insert mode in the Waveform edior enables you to insert audio at playhead position without overwriting. This feature is especially useful for voice workflows in the Waveform editor, Insert Recording mode also supports punch and roll, allowing the speaker to preview the preceding audio before recording the new segment. This makes it easier to match the cadence and delivery of the original performance. Select Overwrite mode if you want to overwrite audio.

For more information, see Overwrite and Insert modes in Waveform editor.
