Adobe Audition CS6 might not be the sexiest part of the Creative Suite — high-profile applications like Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator get most of the attention. But Audition has quietly (as it were) become a versatile and powerful sound editor, and in the CS6 version it boasts greatly improved performance, an updated user interface, and lots of new features.
In his recently released course Audition CS6: New Features Workshop, Maxim Jago walks you through all the latest features, including pitch correction, the new spectral tonal display, support for hardware controllers, and automatic speech alignment. Want to see a cool Audition trick? In this free video Maxim teaches you how to adjust playback speed in a multitrack session, either in real time or as a rendered effect for maximum quality. This lets you change the duration of a clip without changing its pitch (unless you want to) — a capability that has lots of interesting applications when working with audio.
