Adobe Audition provides the tools necessary to enhance, edit and create pristine audio. This application allows the user to remove ambient noise, enhance dialogue and change the pitch of audio projects with its featured professional editing tools. Adobe Audition grants you access to the latest updates and instantly updates to the newest version of the software using Creative Cloud. With 64-bit support, you can use the full power of your computer for advanced editing projects.

The Sound Remover tool helps you remove unwanted audio from your project. Simply select a representative sample of the sound you want to remove and then run the tool to scan and remove the entire segment of unwanted sound. The Spectral Display editor provides a way to select several items and regions within the audio track. Use visual editing tools to easily see the beginning and ending of spoken dialogue and music to make more effective cuts and edits. Use the Preview Editor to confirm your edits and preview the changes before committing to the edits.

The overall interface uses an intuitive design that makes visual editing of audio a breeze. You can even use ITU loudness metering to make sure that your broadcasts conform to the current broadcasts regulations to find any passages that exceed the recommended volume limits. Dock panels you need to use most often and hide the tools you don't need with the customizable interface. Shortcuts and other navigation tools make it possible to use the features you need without having to search through several menus and lists.

Adobe Audition provides a sleek, integrated application that is a true joy to work with. Users that prefer to fully own the software they buy are going to find the new rental model off-putting. However, the new model does cut the overall investment cost for those that upgrade with each new version. Additional useful features include the option to export your audio projects directly to SoundCloud, a free online music streaming website. The sound restoration tools are especially efficient and intuitive. The user can remove even the smallest sounds using the newly revamped Sound Removal Tool.

The multitrack editing interface provides a way to assign colors to each track and clip. This makes it easier to categorize and find the tracks you need to work with quickly and easily. Users can silence clips with a single click and can adjust a clip without needing to go to a main sound editor. The visual Preview Editor allows you to hear and see the latest version of an edit. Visually seeing the audio wave makes it possible to more effectively and quickly determine if you have accidentally cut off an important segment of dialogue or music.
