Adobe Audition is a versatile sound editing application that is used across a wide variety of industries and creative projects.

What is Adobe Audition?

Adobe Audition is a sound-mixing and editing tool that is available as part of the Adobe Creative Cloud. The program can be used to alter and edit the sound of a purely aural medium, such as a music track or a podcast, or alongside programs like Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects to edit the sound of a video or animation file. The tools offered by Audition will let users repair audio files, enhance sound quality, and edit out background noise. This makes Audition an ideal tool to learn for anyone who wants to work in either sound editing or video editing.

Audition is a stand-alone program that sound engineers can use to edit recordings. Still, it is most commonly used alongside programs like Premiere Pro or After Effects to combine audio and video files. Audition lets users add voice-over, redub dialogue, insert background music, or draw out specific elements of diegetic sound. As sound is one of the essential elements of film, learning how to manipulate and edit sound is an important skill for creatives to learn.

What Can You Do with Adobe Audition?

Adobe Audition provides users with many tools for editing and remixing sound files. This means that the program is incredibly versatile. Aspiring musicians can use the program to clean up demo tracks or prepare a song to be published on a platform like SoundCloud. Podcasters can record, edit, and clean up an episode's audio using a single program. Voice Actors can record their work for job material or do important sound-mixing for freelance VO work. Anyone working in the medium of sound will want to learn how to mix and edit their creative work.

Beyond its use as a sound-mixing tool, learning how to use Adobe Audition is incredibly helpful for aspiring video editors. Learning to use Audition to add voice-over, manipulate audio levels, edit sound effects, or alter diegetic and non-diegetic sound can greatly enhance any video project, large or small. This training will let creatives working in the medium of film add another layer to how they can express themselves and their ideas, as sound is such an essential part of filmmaking.

Video Editing

One of the most common uses for Adobe Audition involves pairing it with a video editing application, usually Premiere Pro. Editors will manipulate sound files in Audition and then add them into video files using Premiere Pro. Since sound is such a key component of video production, pairing these two skills together will significantly open up the kinds of projects that creatives are capable of working on.

To learn more about Video Editing, students can consult the resources and articles available on Noble’s Learn hub.

Motion Graphics

Another common use for Adobe Audition is motion graphics editing. Here, sound is added to digital animation files rather than adding sound to live-action video files. The process is similar, but users will build digital motion assets using programs like Adobe After Effects before perfecting those animated assets using audio files constructed in Audition. This is also an important skill to learn for students interested in digital content creation for platforms like YouTube or industries like the online advertising industry.

For students interested in learning Motion Graphics, Noble has compiled a collection of resources for students interested in learning Motion Graphics to help get them started.

Web Design

Audition users may also be interested in using their sound editing skills to design webpages. Sound is a commonly used element in more elaborate web design projects, so, naturally, users may wish to combine these two skills. Audition users will build sound files and then add those sound files to interactive web interface assets using programs such as Figma or Adobe Dreamweaver. This will allow Web Designers to create more memorable and evocative webpages, utilizing their sound-mixing skills to add another layer to their designs.

Noble’s Learn page provides students with plenty of free resources to learn more about Web Design.
