Nice rack: better DSP effect workflows in Adobe Audition CS5.5
The good ol’ Effects Rack. Could there be any better paradigm through which to apply and control effects to the tracks in a session? It’s got that real-world familiarity that simplifies audio recording and editing in the digital realm.
As good as it was before, the Effects Rack gets a significant workflow boost in Audition CS5.5 with the new modeless Effect Rack-that’s a fancy way of saying that no matter what edit mode you’re working in, there will be an Effects Rack available to you.
In the Waveform Editor, you can use the Effects Rack or Effects menu to instantiate, edit, preview, and apply DSP effects. In the Multitrack Editor, you can use the Effects Rack panel to apply DSP effects to individual clips or to entire tracks. On track effects, you can save CPU cycles by engaging the Pre-Render button, which applies effects to the entire track, without locking you out of the effects parameter controls.
There are many new and enhanced DSP effects in Audition CS5.5, including quite a few created by the audio geniuses at iZotope, including the new DeHummer, Surround Reverb, Speech Volume Leveler, and Vocal Enhancer, as well as the upgraded DeEsser, Single Band Compressor, Chorus/Flanger, and Phaser.
