Published Date: May 29, 2013


The 16 project-based lessons in this book show students step-by-step the key techniques for working in Audition CC. Starting with the basics of audio interfacing and the Audition environment, students will move on to working in Waveform View, performing such tasks as basic editing, signal processing, audio restoration, mastering, and creating and recording files. The book also covers basic multitrack orientation and track parameters, creating music with sound libraries and by overdubbing, mixing strategies, and working with video. 

In addition, in this new updated version for Creative Cloud, students will learn about new effects like Stereo Expander, which widens the stereo image for a bigger-than-life sound, and Frequency Band Splitter, which extracts individual frequency bands from a file to their own separate files. Students will also explore numerous workflow enhancements, including track colorization to help identify tracks in multitrack projects, improved clip handling and merging, extended key commands, and more.



Instructor Notes for this title will be available soon on the Pearson Higher Ed site.
