Adobe announces Audition 3 Adobe Systems Incorporated has announced Audition 3, a new major release for its professional audio production software. Adobe Audition 3 is designed to give audio professionals like sound designers, recording and mastering engineers, and musicians a flexible production toolkit for recording, mixing, editing, and mastering audio. New features include VSTi virtual instrument support with MIDI piano roll, enhanced spectral editing options, fast fade and crossfade controls, and advanced multi-core support.
"Adobe Audition 3 is packed with new features for all types of users," said Hart Shafer, senior product manager at Adobe. "In addition to concentrating on delivering new creative capabilities and unmatched editing tools, we've turbo-charged performance and ensured time-saving features are integrated into the product. That means our customers can spend less time working in the software and more time creating the perfect sound."

With new support for VSTi virtual instruments and MIDI piano roll style editing, combined with sophisticated audio and mixing tools, Adobe Audition 3 provides more creative power for audio production. New effects like the Analog Delay, Convolution Reverb, and Tube-modeled Compressor provide new sonic options, while the Guitar Suite adds analog-modeled effects to dry guitar tracks. Radius time stretching, from industry-leader iZotope, allows users to accurately change tempo and pitch independently.

"We have always found Adobe Audition to be the best audio editor for our work and the changes in version 3 will cement that position," said Jerry Ibbotson, owner and sound designer for Media Mill, producer of sound effects for video games, including the PS3 launch title> Motostorm and the PSP hit Pursuit Force 2. "Having the ability to grab any part of a wave and drag it up or down in volume is brilliant. And the Spot Healing Brush is pure genius because I will be able to get rid of errant noises from the background of a recording at a stroke, saving so much time and effort."

Audition 3 for Windows XP and Windows Vista will ship later this year with estimated street prices of $349 for the full version and $99 for upgrades.

Audition is an excellent audio program. It's more for the Pro's but anyone can use its basic features.
