Today I’m going to walk you through an Adobe Audition CC 2019 full tutorial. Adobe Audition is my personal audio editing software of choice. I use it for editing my podcasts, voiceover work, and more.
- When you’re in Adobe Audition, you’re going to see your workspace.
- You’ll see your files in the box on the upper right left of the screen.
- To add a new file, select File and New. You can choose a multi-track session (like pictured above) or record an audio file.
- To change your workspace view, go to Window and choose a setup that you like. I personally recommend just keeping it on the default view.
- You can also move the existing boxes anywhere you want on the screen. Just click the 3 lines beside the title of a box and choose Undock Panel. Then you can place it where you want on the screen.
Record an Audio File
- Go to File, New, and then select Audio File.
- I’m going to open an audio file I just recorded.
- You can see your wave file and select any part of it that you want.
- To remove part of the audio, just make your selection and hit Delete (or backspace).
- To undo a change you just made, you can select Edit from the top menu and click Undo.
- To reduce the volume of your audio, you will see a small audio adjuster dialog box in your workspace.
- This box is movable and can be put anywhere you want on the timeline. Just click and drag around your screen.
- You can also hotkey certain commands in Adobe. For instance, I’ve set up a hotkey to silence a part of the audio.
- To change your hotkeys, go to Edit in the top menu and click Keyboard Shortcuts.
- This option allows you to see what shortcuts are set up and customize your own.
Adding Effects to Audio
- If you want to add an effect to your audio, select Effects from the top menu. Make sure your file is selected.
- You can add echo, compression, or another effect.
- When you’ve selected your desired effects, just click Apply.
- Go to File, New, and click Multi-track session.
- Give it a name and click OK.
- A blank multi-track workspace will appear.
- You can rename a track by double-clicking the track title and typing in the new name.
- To add audio to the multi-track editor, you can click File, Import, and select the audio clip you want to import.
- If you already have audio files open in the left-hand area of your screen, you can just click and drag files where you want them to go.
- You can move elements around the multi-track session by clicking and dragging.
- Each track has its own settings so you can use the controls to the left of each track to control volume or apply effects.
- You can double-click a track to enlarge it. This will allow you to go in and fine tune the track and make it easier to adjust.
