Course Details


Adobe Audition provides a comprehensive audio post solution for virtually any type of sound production work – from broadcasting to podcasting. In this class, you will learn to edit audio faster and with greater precision, accelerate restoration processes with accurate noise reduction and sound removal, and perform precise clip spotting with new features for audio alignment, keyframe editing and clip timing.


This class is appropriate for novice to intermediate level users. Bringing samples of the kinds of projects that you’d like to be able to do is helpful but not required. We also recommend that you have the software installed before starting the class. You can purchase the software or obtain a trial version of it from the Adobe web site at
