“The best way to improve the quality of your picture is to improve the quality of your sound”
On Thursday, July 25h, 2013 |10:00 AM Pacific Time, we will be offering a special Ask a Video Pro session with Larry Jordan:
Demystifying Audio – Adobe Audition for Video Editors
You can register free for this eSeminar here.
The first question many video editors ask is: “why should I consider using an audio application for my projects?” Larry will show you how you can use Adobe Audition to create better videos. Starting with an overview of the application, Larry will then demonstrate how Audition can make your life a lot easier. During this 45-minute presentation, you’ll discover:
- Send files and projects between Premiere Pro and Audition
- Remove hum from an interview
- Remove background noise
- Maximize audio levels without causing distortion
- Do an audio mix of your project
- Create “stems,” or submixes, of your dialog, effects, and music tracks
- Test your final mix to be sure it meets all technical specs before submitting it to the client.
The session will be followed by a Q&A.
Audience: video editors, postproduction professionals, audio pros
Applications: Adobe Audition CC and Adobe Premiere Pro CC. Workflows with other NLEs will also be discussed.

If you do anything in postproduction, odds are you’ve heard of Larry Jordan. Along with authoring eight books, over a thousand technical articles, and a plethora of popular video training programs, he also hosts an Internet radio show called Digital Production BuZZ that draws tens of thousands of listeners each month.
A huge proponent of Adobe Audition, Larry hosts a weekly webinar on postproduction software and techniques. To celebrate his 100th webinar, Larry focused on the latest version of Audition: Fix Bad Audio in Adobe Audition CC.
On top of that, Larry has just released a brand-new training series on Adobe Audition CC, aimed at video editors who want to improve the quality of their sound. We thought this would be a great occasion to talk with Larry and learn more.
Note: Larry Jordan is offering our readers 10% off. See the bottom of this post for your discount code.
One week ago, on June 13, director Richard Jobson delivered a dynamic presentation on Wayland’s Song, his sixth feature film made entirely using Adobe Creative Cloud (CS6) applications. In this special Ask a Video Pro session, Richard will describe the whole process from planning through to final delivery, including scriptwriting and production scheduling with Adobe Story, ingest and logging with Prelude, video editing in Adobe Premiere Pro, visual effects with After Effects, and final color grading with SpeedGrade. Naturally, audio editing and mixing were done in Audition. Wayland’s Song premiered this year at the Cannes Film Festival.

Adobe held a fantastically successful Create Now event yesterday showing how artists and production professional are using Creative Cloud to bring their work to the next level. Thousands of people from all around the world took part. Our own Jason Levine, worldwide Adobe evangelist, audio pro, musician – and a veteran from the old days when Audition was still called Cool Edit Pro – is one of the presenters.
If you missed the live broadcast, you can still watch Create Now on Adobe TV.
Yesterday also saw the announcement of Creative Cloud for Teams - a better way of working together.

One of the best things about going to AES was the opportunity to mix and mingle with people in the various audio professions. And if you came by the booth, you may have noticed that we were holding a draw for Production Premium CS6, the awesome Adobe suite that includes Audition, Premiere Pro for video editing, After Effects, Photoshop, and more.
Well, today we are delighted to announce that the winner of the draw is … (queue pristine audio of drumroll) … Tom Evans of Dublin, California! Continue reading…
Last week we spent a wonderful three days at the AES exhibition in the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Three great days of meeting, greeting, and giving hundreds of demos of Audition CS6 for old customers and new friends.
One of the first things people saw when they entered the Moscone Center North was the Adobe sign on the press office.
Attendance for AES seemed to be strong, despite travel disruptions caused by Hurricane Sandy in the east, and the excitement of the World Series in San Francisco.
9:59 am on Saturday: crowds waiting eagerly for the 133rd AES Show to open.
Adobe is making it simpler to keep your software up-to-date. And a lot cheaper.
Audition CS6 has been so well received by reviewers and production professionals around the world, and you now have several options for buying it. Along with boxed versions (or “shrink” as they call it here), and purchasing online, you can also subscribe. That last option is a great model. We encourage you to take a good look at Adobe’s Creative Cloud Membership.
As a value proposition, Creative Cloud is pretty much unbeatable: download and use the entire collection of Adobe’s professional applications. All of them, as well as services like Business Catalyst or Typekit. The standard price of $49.99 per month is less than most cell phone plans or cable TV subscriptions. Continue reading…
