Killer Movie Soundtracks…Literally

A longtime Audition fan, Justin Lassen used Audition 3 to help him mix a lot of fantastic soundtracks for a new Clive Barker movie called The Midnight Meat Train. The movie is scheduled for limited release on August 1. Justin did a lot of the prep work and the finalization of the various individual tracks with Audition 3.

Asked what he likes most about Audition 3, Justin said, “I like using Adobe Audition to edit individual multitracks before mixing them all down to a pre-master. The mixer interface is perfect for this! I love the ability to effect each track in real-time. I also utilized all of the effects and the new virtual instrument features as well as editing tools, which Audition is famous for! This software is killer amazing and super fast!”

“For this project, I found Audition to be extremely useful when I needed to edit, mix-down and tweak hundreds of individual master tracks from all the band’s songs (which were being shipped to me from all over the world during production and in various audio formats). It was fast, reliable and lifesaving. The delays, reverbs, distortion and compression suites all came in handy when I needed to crunch some of the performances to match the vibe of the film, as well as finding obscure yet accessible sound design for each individual remix. The combinations of all those textures worked their dark charms into my work beautifully.”
