2. Software Overview

Adobe Audition is a digital audio workstation designed for professional audio editing. Audition for the Creative Cloud is the first 64-bit version of the application. It was originally released by Syntrillium as Cool Edit, but was later purchased by Adobe and renamed to Audition.

You can use Audition to record separate audio tracks and combine them into a full musical composition. The program features non-destructive multitrack editing but also has a waveform editing view for destructive editing. The separate audio tracks can also be tweaked using tools like pitch correction and pitch bending.

Besides music composition, Audition is also commonly used for editing audio for video productions. Its integration with Premiere Pro allows you to quickly remove unwanted background noise with the Sound Removal tool and then jump right back into Premiere Pro to continue video editing. You can even open Premiere Pro projects directly from the media browser in Audition and select specific sequences to modify.

Adobe Audition is a great sound editor and a full-fledged digital audio workstation that both professionals and hobbyists will find useful. With its many different tools and easy integration with other Adobe products it is a great choice for audio editing.
