Essential Sound panel


New in Audition CC 2015.2 | June 2016

With shorter turnaround times and shrinking budgets, many video editors mix their audio without engaging a professional audio engineer. This release of Adobe Audition empowers video editors with limited audio experience to easily handle mixing techniques for their projects.

The Essential Sound panel gives you a complete toolset to mix your audio for achieving professional-quality output. The panel provides simple controls to unify volume levels, repair sound, improve clarity, and add special effects. The effects help your video projects sound like a professional audio engineer has mixed them. You can save the applied adjustments as presets for reuse and they reflect in the full Audition toolset, making them handy for more audio refinements.  

For more information, see Editing, repairing, and improving audio using Essential Sound panel.

Export Multitrack to Adobe Media Encoder


New in Audition CC 2015.2 | June 2016

Audition can now export your edited audio directly to Adobe Media Encoder. The feature enables a fully linear post-production workflow, using format presets and audio channel customization without rendering or wrangling various mixdown files.

To export, select your destination format and preset. The feature includes rewrapping your video for many formats to prevent re-encoding the video stream, and add to the render queue. You can even customize how your final audio channels are assigned to your video file.

Your project starts rendering automatically in the background when the project files are prepared. Projects that you had edited using Audition wear the Audition logo, making it easy to identify which projects are complete and ready for use. You can get back to work in Audition or Premiere on your next project while Adobe Media Encoder renders the files in the background.

For more information, see Save and export files in Adobe Audition.
