Adobe Audition 3 software allows you to record, mix, edit, and master digital audio files with powerful tools that bring flexibility and control to your desktop studio.

When you're ready to create some new music, record or mix a project that's already close to being finished, produce a spot for the radio, or need to put some finishing touches on a soundtrack background, Audition 3 is capable of all of that and more. This particular version is a perfect solution for sound designers, musicians, recording and mastering engineers or any audiocentric enthusiast needing an all-in-one toolset ready to go on their Windows-based computer.

Some of the top features you'll find with this latest update are:

VSTi virtual instrument support

The wider range of support for virtual instruments means you can simply add a MIDI host track to your mix, choose an instrument, and then record new audio in the Sequencer.

Improved multitrack editing

Save time and increase accuracy by editing grouped clips at once. Quickly mix files together by auto-crossfading clips in multitrack view and click-and-drag fade handles on multitrack clips and in the Edit View for more efficient editing.

Enhanced spectral editing

The Effects Paintbrush allows you to make a free-form selection in frequency space and apply effects in varying degrees to that selection. Use the Spot Healing Brush to smooth over a selected region and automatically repair clicks, pops, and other noises.

Top/Tail Views

The new Top/Tail Views allow you to zoom into the beginning and end of files so you can quickly add precise fades while keeping the whole file in view.

New effects

New effects include Convolution Reverb, Analog Delay, Mastering tool, Guitar Suite, Tube-modeled Compressor, and more.

Superior performance

Take advantage of today's new multicore processors which allow the optimized mix engine to work on more tracks and effects on the same machine, offering more variety and faster processing.

These are a few of the reasons why Adobe's Audition 3 for Windows is an excellent choice if you are serious about the quality of your music production. Below you'll find even more features.

Comments about Adobe Audition 3 for Windows:

This is a GREAT software for production. A lot of the lists are afloat, you can drag them where you want them to be. The features that are included in this package will pay off if you take the time out to learn how to use them. Once again, this is one hell of a recording software.

Best audio editor!!!

By Adam Pantofel

from Bangor, Pennsylvania

Comments about Adobe Audition 3 for Windows:

Ive been using adobe audition for the past six to eight or ten years from its former name "cool edit pro". Im so used to the program I never bothered with other audio editors. Everything in adobe products is completely convenient and stress-free. Meaning you can learn new things about audio in seconds! I get 100's in my digital radio production class all the time because of my experience with adobe audition. youd be surprised what you could find out just by messing around with the thing! However the new Daw setup-meaning the sequencer and midi editing is not so comfortable for me. I prefer using a seperate daw or sequencer where you have a much broader and expanded workspace.


Best DAW for recording !!!

By Sick Messiah

Comments about Adobe Audition 3 for Windows:

I have been using Adobe audition since way before it was owned by adobe .. BAck in the old Cool EDit Pro Days !! I have been using it for 11 years total . It has grown to be a awesome mutitrack recording program . Way better then cubase , or sony acid , and way easier .. I have tryed alot of programs over the years , and still nothing beats it for editing audio.. It works great with my presonus firestudio .. The Only thing it lacks is midi sequencing and recording .. Its weak in that section of being a DAW . But overall i wouldnt use anything else .. I use FL studio for my midi sequencing , and Adobe Audition for recording, and editing audio .. And with a fast enough pc .. Rewiring the 2 together is sweet !!
