Adobe Audition is an application designed for editing and mixing audio for film and media based projects. With each student working on their own iMac in LIFT’s digital media lab, this hands-on introductory workshop provides practical insight into the different techniques that can be used creatively to explore and edit sound. Learn about technical setup and media organization, get hands on experience with track layout, importing audio from a variety of sources, editing, pre-mixing multiple tracks as well as the technical terms, concepts and tools of digital sound editing.

The course will touch on recording but will focus mainly on editing audio. If you have any audio recordings readily available to edit please bring them, otherwise sound bites will be available for you to use. Headphones are recommended for this workshop.

This workshop is recommended as a companion to Introduction to Post- Production Sound for Filmmakers and Producers.
