Things to Know
Adobe Audition is a powerful audio editing and creation tool. It has many helpful features that will take your projects to the next level. One feature is the two editing views it includes to help users edit easier depending on what they are doing. These views include the Waveform view, which is used for making changes to an individual audio file, and Multitrack view, which allows the user to view multiple tracks at one time to assemble and mix together on one screen. Another great feature is the flexibility of being able to export video and audio files into Audition, giving you the ability to look at your video as you edit the sound. Premiere Pro even has an Audition soundboard included to get you started with audio edits and will allow you to export your work directly to audition to do any additional editing.
