Audition 3 Essential Training focuses on audio theory and mixing while explaining all of the new features in Audition 3. Audition can be used by home recording engineers, musicians, podcasters, radio production personnel, and anyone who wants to score their own videos. Your instructor is Bruce Williams, who has been in radio since 1987. He has been a carting guy, producer, and production manager. He's been showing people how to use Audition since 2005. This library is divided into 17 lessons and runs 6.5 hours.
Lesson 1, "Introduction" gives you an introduction to Audition 3, the training files, new features, and explains the essential preferences. Here he gives you an overview of how Audition works by explaining the three different views that you have available to you: Multitrack which is non-destructive, Edit which is destructive, and the CD burning views.
Lesson 2, "Audio Theory" introduces the concepts behind audio production. Before diving into Audition, Williams will go over needed concepts like frequency, sample rate, bit resolution, as well as other topics and how they relate to audio production.
Lesson 3, "Recording Essentials" examines the audio hardware dialog box, creating new files, the save options, and how to manage workspaces. In this lesson you learn about the options that you have available to you for your production.
Lesson 4, "File Management" continues with handling files and working with Adobe Bridge, how XMP info works, how to import files into Audition 3, and lots of great tips for working and managing files from within the file browser.
Lesson 5, "Working in Edit View" explores the various panels that make up the edit view interface. You will learn about the new Top and Tail view how best to work with this view. You will also learn how to understand and work with individual channels, working with peak program meters, using the loop play mode, working with sample rates, and how to understand the amplitude statistics.
Lesson 6, "Working with Spectral Displays" now switches to the various spectral displays that are available in Audition 3 as well as how to work with the appropriate brushes to manipulate the data and to get a better understanding of how frequency space editing works.
