Section 1: Introducing Adobe Audition CS6
This lesson introduces Audition and gives you a first taste of some of its powerful features.
This lesson looks some of the important elements of the Adobe Audition CS6 interface. You'll learn what the various panels do and how to rearrange them to suit your personal preferences.
Audition has a mix of tools for working on your audio files and sessions, and in this lesson you'll be introduced to every one.
Section 2: Importing and Managing Media Files
This lesson shows you how to import new audio files and highlights a couple of "gotchas" in the preferences.
Extracting audio from CD is super-easy with Audition CS6. This lesson shows you how.
Audition allows you to import video files to use as a reference, either for operations like audio cleanup or to produce a soundtrack to accompany the video. This lesson shows the workflow.
Audition can import Final Cut Pro 7 XML files, treating them like a simple edit decision list. This lesson shows you how easy it is to use this versatile and increasingly universal format to share edits with video editing systems.
Section 3: Working with Sound Files
This lesson shows you three important ways to examine individual audio files: The Waveform, Spectral Frequency Display, and Spectral Pitch Display.
You can adjust the volume for an entire clip, part of a clip, or even specific frequencies in a clip. This lesson shows you how, and introduces the multiple clipboard feature that has thankfully returned in Audition CS6.
Audition has multiple workflows for adding special effects to your audio clips. This lesson shows you the simplest "old school" method for working with layered effects.
You can combine multiple effects and preview them before committing to the change. This allows you to experiment freely, though what you can do does depend somewhat on the power of your computer, as you'll see in this video.
Audition has multiple solutions for troublesome audio. This lesson shows you two powerful automatic options that might just help you save the day.
The Spectral Display gives you unique, powerful ways of making precise selections in your audio. This lesson shows you how to use it to precisely clean up a recording.
This lesson looks at automatic pitch correction, another of the powerful range of intelligent special effects available in Audition.
The Paintbrush tool gives you extraordinary precision when applying effects in the Waveform view. In this lesson you'll see how to select a particular range of frequencies.
The Doppler Shifter is a fun effect that can only be applied through the Effects menu. You'll see how it works in this video.
Section 4: Introduction to Multitrack Sessions
This lesson shows you how to create a new multitrack session.
The Multitrack Editor is one of the key areas of the Adobe Audition interface, and this important lesson introduces the main controls.
The major part of setting up an audio session is adding new clips to it. This lesson shows you a couple of ways of getting started with new clips, and a couple of convenient shortcuts to move and adjust clips once they are in the session.
The Mixer provides very similar controls to the track headers in the Multitrack Editor. This lesson walks you through each control and shows you the one or two extras you can't find anywhere else.
Multitrack session templates can dramatically speed up your Audition workflow. This lesson shows you how to use them, and how to create them!
The Channel Map Editor lets you very precisely control which audio channels are used as input for an effect in the Waveform view, and which channels are used for output. This lesson shows you how.
VST plug-ins are universally compatible extra effects and tools that you can use with Audition. This lesson shows you how to install them and how to incorporate them into your workflow.
Section 5: Multitrack Editing
Audition allows you to apply effects to individual clip segments in a session or to an entire track. This lesson clarifies the difference.
Buses allow you to combine the output from multiple tracks in a session in order to apply effects or make level adjustments with far fewer clicks. This lesson introduces one of the most advanced ways to use the Mixer.
One of the most powerful and intuitive features of Audition is in the controls you have to adjust audio level, panning, and effect settings over time. It takes a little practice to master and this lesson will give you a head start.
Audition lets you choose a nondestructive or a destructive method for averaging audio levels on clips. This lesson shows you the benefits of both.
Audition CS6 has new, convenient controls for grouping clips in multitrack sessions, and powerful new time stretching options. This lesson explores both.
Burning CDs is super-easy with Audition CS6. This lesson shows you how to use both audio files and markers to create a new music CD.
Section 6: Integration with the Creative Suite
This lesson shows you two ways to get creative work directly from Premiere Pro into Audition.
Once you have completed your creative work, you'll want to share it. This lesson shows you how to save your multitrack session into any one the many formats supported by Adobe Audition CS6.
Audition CS6 supports round-tripping with Premiere Pro CS6. Just as you can automatically send your edited sequence from Premiere Pro to Audition, you can also send a session from Audition to Premiere Pro! This lesson shows you how.
Audition supports both OMF and FCP 7 XML options to share your creative decisions with collaborators. This lesson explains the differences and walks you through using these industry-standard formats.
