SESSION DESCRIPTION

Whether you use Adobe Premiere Pro or Apple Final Cut Pro X for your edit, you can clean, edit and mix your audio faster and better in Adobe Audition.

In this session, Larry Jordan explains key audio terms, then shows how to:

  • Repair typical audio problems
  • Move an edit from Premiere or Final Cut into Audition
  • Edit, move and trim audio clips
  • Set levels and use core audio filters
  • Use the Essential Sound to auto-duck music
  • Use busses to simplify the mix
  • Test an export for audio quality
  • Export a final mix and bring it into Premiere or Final Cut

It sounds like a lot of steps, but the results are worth it. Larry uses this workflow each week to create the finished audio for his weekly webinars.

BIG NOTE: Due to limitations in GoToWebinar, while this session will illustrate every step, you won’t be able to hear the actual audio mix. This allows us to focus on the tools and steps of the entire process.

AUDIENCE LEVEL

This intermediate-level session requires no knowledge of Audition, though some knowledge of Premiere or Final Cut will be helpful.
