Adobe Audition is the perfect application for recording and mixing audio for video, podcasting, and sound effect design.
Audition is also an industry-leading tool for cleaning up recordings and audio restoration.
Audition has two modes, accessible by clicking on the Waveform or Multitrack buttons here at the top, or by double-clicking to open an audio file or multitrack session in the Files panel.
Effects can be applied one at a time by selecting them in the Effects menu, or by adding them as a list in the Effects rack, which allows you to experiment with effect combinations before applying them.
Presets help you get started, with detailed controls to finesse your adjustments.
You can also batch-process audio files to remove issues like 60 Hz hum — or match the amplitude of clips, using a range of measures, including industry standard Broadcast Loudness options.
The Multitrack view offers a comprehensive set of non-destructive tools for mixing and editing audio. Changes you make in this mode do not modify your original audio files.
You can make several adjustments to multitrack clips directly, making it really easy to adjust a mix quickly. For example, adjust a clip’s level to make it more audible.
The Multitrack Effects Rack is non-destructive, and functions in a similar way to the Waveform Editor Effects Rack.
The Essential Sound panel provides access to useful effect presets and clip adjustments based on particular tasks.
Audition has a number of panels, each providing different functionality. Workspaces make it simple to organize panels for different activities, like Radio Production, or Mastering and Analysis.
So that’s a brief overview of what Adobe Audition does and how it can help your video and audio projects sound their very best.
