Adobe Audition 3.0 is a digital audio workstation with multitrack editing capabilities and four different editing tools. One of these tools is an effect paintbrush that increases the intensity of sound, and another is a spot healing tool that removes unwanted sounds. Adobe Audition 3.0 also features full MIDI capability.
The multitrack editing capabilities of Adobe Audition 3.0 include the ability to apply equalization to multiple recording channels, timestretch individual clips and work with video. Users can use one of the four different editing tools in the software's Edit view, adjusting the sonic character of individual sound clips and playing them back with the rest of the ensemble.
In addition to these features, Adobe Audition 3.0 is also compatible with VST plug-ins, allowing users to purchase, download and install third-party effects. The software allows its users to perform automatic crossfades between audio files in an intuitive way. Simply dragging one audio file over another in the multitrack view mode creates a crossfade between the two. Adobe Audition 3.0 also offers XML session support, which allows users to save their sessions to the broadly compatible XML format so that users of other digital audio programs can open and work on sessions.
