Adobe Audition lets you use advanced post-production techniques to create and edit audio. If you have installed Adobe Audition, you can apply the Edit In Adobe Audition command to an audio clip or a sequence.

  • Sending a clip to Audition lets you render the clip's audio data to do more advanced audio editing in Audition's Wave Editor.
  • Sending a sequence to Audition transfers the full fidelity of your composition keeping keyframes, effects, Essential Sound settings, markers, and metadata intact. Sending a sequence lets you do further refinement, mixing and advanced composition in Audition's Multitrack Editor.

Working with Adobe Audition

  1. In a Project panel, select a clip or sequence containing audio. You can also select a clip in the Timeline or right click the clip or sequence in the Project panel.

  2. Select Edit > Edit In Adobe Audition and then select Clip or Sequence from the submenu.

  3. Edit your audio in Audition.

Editing Audio Clips in Adobe Audition

When you apply the Edit In Audition command to an audio clip, the clip is rendered and replaced into a new Wave file which is directly opened in Audition. The original audio material is retained if you choose to edit the audio file in Audition but only the copied audio is changed.

If an In/Out range was marked in Premiere Pro, these markers become visible in Audition. When the clip is edited and saved in Audition, the changes made to the clip is directly reflected in the Premiere Pro Timeline panel. Effects or markers applied to the original sequence clip are preserved in the edited clip.

You can edit the audio in Adobe Audition many times. For each subsequent Edit Clip in Adobe Audition, Premiere Pro renders and replaces a new audio clip for further editing in Audition.

The Undo command deletes the extracted audio clip that’s been edited in Adobe Audition.


The Edit In Audition command is not available for Adobe Dynamic Link clips.

Editing Sequences in Adobe Audition

When applying the Edit Sequence in Audition command, Premiere Pro sends the currently selected sequence with rendered audio for further compositing to Audition. The sequence opens in Audition as a Multitrack Session.

To send a Premiere Pro project to Audition, follow these steps:

  1. Select Edit > Edit in Adobe Audition > Sequence.

  2. The Edit in Adobe Audition dialog appears. 

    See Edit in Adobe Audition Options for further information.

  3. Click OK. 

    Premiere Pro creates a Project (depending on your installed versions XML or Premiere Pro Project) containing only the selected sequence and its audio clips. All audio material of the sequence is extracted and copied to the destination path, leading to a self-contained Premiere Pro Project with no dependencies to the source project (except if video: Send Through Dynamic Link was selected).

  4. Audition launches and opens the created project automatically if the Open in Audition check box was checked.

Edit in Adobe Audition Options

The Edit In Adobe Audition dialog lets you configure certain properties for the generated Project that is sent to Audition.

Send sequence to Audition
Send sequence to Audition

Name / Path

Name and Path of the Project generated (defaults to the sequence name which will be send to Audition).

Audio Handles

Audio Handles refer to the content of the clip beyond the clip boundaries. If the clip in the sequence has a length of 10 -seconds and Audio Handles is set to 1 -second, the rendered Audio File has the duration of 12 -seconds with 1 -second more material at the front and end.


  • Export DV Video: One video file containing the video in the sequence is rendered for Audition.
  • Dynamic Link streaming video: The Dynamic Link video streaming feature lets you stream video without rendering when sending projects from Premiere Pro to Audition. When you send Premiere Pro projects to Audition using the Dynamic Link video streaming video option, you can view video in its native resolution within Audition.
  • None: No video is created/available in Audition.

Transfer information to Audition

Adobe Audition and Adobe Premiere Pro share many audio effects, letting you to transfer information of the audio effects. Audio effects can be instantiated again in Audition without rendering the audio clip.

For information on the list of shared effects between Audition and Premiere Pro, see Shared audio effects between Audition and Premiere Pro.

If you decide to transfer information of an effect which is not available in Audition, it is placed as an offline effect into the effect rack. Third-party Effect Plug-Ins (VST/VST3) information is transferred as well. If you have loaded the Plug-In in Audition, the effect is properly instantiated. Otherwise the effect is offline as well.
