Audition CC 6.0
This version of Adobe Audition comes with a boost in performance, lots of little things to make your life easier, and loads of new features. Now, Audition is a 64-bit application for both Windows and Mac OS, with considerably improved performance.
Use the new Sound Remover effect (Effects > Noise Reduction/Restoration) to remove unwanted audio sources from a recording. This effect analyzes a selected portion of the recording, and builds a sound model. The generated model can also be modified using parameters that indicate its complexity. A high complexity sound model requires more refinement passes to process the recording, but provides more accurate results. You can also save the sound model for later use. Several common presets are also included to best handle sounds, such as sirens and ringing mobile phones.
For more information, see Sound Remover effect.
Use the Click/Pop Eliminator effect (Effects > Noise Reduction/Restoration) to remove microphone pops, clicks, light hiss, and crackles. Such noise is common on recordings such as old vinyl records and on-location recordings. The effect dialog box stays open, and you can adjust the selection, and fix multiple clicks without reopening the effect several times.
For more information, see Click/Pop Eliminator effect.
You can now see in real time, how the waveform looks before you apply changes. Or work on separate regions of a file simultaenously. This functionality is especially valuable when you're working with effects that alter the duration of a clip. Choose View > Show Preview Editor to display the preview.
Note: While using Preview Editor with process effects such as Stretch, Doppler Shifter, Pitch, and Pitch Bender, wait for the preview sequence to get generated before you move the playhead.
Use Frequency Band Splitter to take one audio clip (or a selection in a clip) and make up to eight copies, where each copy contains a different frequency range contained in the original clip. The crossover frequencies determine the split points. Each copy of the waveform is created as a new file, and placed in the Files panel. You can then edit or apply effects to each band separately.
For example, three bands with crossover values of 800 Hz and 3200 Hz creates three copies of the selected waveform: with the frequencies of the selected wave from 0 Hz to 800 Hz, 801 Hz to 3200 Hz, and from 3201 Hz to 22050 Hz (or whatever the maximum frequency present is, based on the sample rate).
For more information, see Frequency Band Splitter.
You can now easily add, remove, and invert spectral selections made using the marquee, lasso, or paintbrush selection tools.
To make it easier to identify tracks, a color bar is added to the tracks. These color bars are added on the left of track header, or at the bottom in the mixer panel. When you add a clip to a track, the clip color changes to match that of the track.
Click the color box in the bar to specify a custom color. A new preference Show Track Color in Multitrack (Edit > Preferences > Appearance) enables or disables this functionality.
Use the new Favorites panel to record, view, organize, run, or edit your favorite tasks. To display the Favorites panel, choose Window > Favorites or Favorites > Edit Favorites.
You can edit the favorites, from within the Favorites panel. Choose Favorites > Edit Favorites. The actions are displayed in panel itself, and you can double-click the action to open and edit the parameters.
Several updates and tweaks were made to the Audition user interface and functionality to make it more intuitive and make your tasks easier.
