Adobe Audition CS5.5

Video Description

This Course can only be played using a subscription. You can play only first 3 chapters for free. Click Here to avail a subscription This VTC course introduces you to Adobe's recently released Audition CS5.5 which now integrates into their creative suite. Author Mark Struthers will give you a background in digital audio as he illustrates both the benefits of working on individual files in the waveform editor and the way the multitrack view allows audio file manipulation over many tracks simultaneously. Additionally, owing to Audition's tightly integrated video editing facility, he will touch on working with Adobe's Premiere Pro. As the course progresses, effect processing is considered to help improve, repair, and optimize your audio files. You will be able to follow techniques throughout the course that not only introduce you to new and existing features but also allow you to pick up tips and tricks along the way.
