Adobe Systems announced Adobe Audition software, a complete multitrack recording studio for Windows-based PCs. Previously named Cool Edit Pro 2.1, this award-winning product was acquired from Syntrillium Software in May 2003.

Delivering advanced audio mixing, editing, mastering and effects-processing capabilities, Adobe Audition is a professional-level audio tool that allows users to edit individual audio files, create loops, import more than 45 DSP effects and mix up to 128 tracks. “The introduction of Adobe Audition into our digital video product family is an important step in providing a complete, high-performance workflow for video professionals,” said Bryan Lamkin, senior VP of digital imaging and video products at Adobe. “Going forward, Adobe Audition will continue to provide the advanced editing capabilities professional audio editors and musicians expect, while delivering close integration with the entire Adobe digital video product line.”

Audition provides a fully integrated audio editing and mixing solution for music, video, radio and sound design professionals with integrated multitrack and edit views, real-time effects, looping support, analysis tools, restoration features and video support. Users benefit from real-time audio effects that allow them to hear changes and track EQ instantaneously. Flexible looping tools and thousands of high-quality, royalty-free music loops are included to assist in soundtrack and music creation. In addition to support for .WAV, .AIFF, MP3, MP3PRO and WMA, can handle files with bit depths of up to 32-bit and sample rates in excess of 192 kHz.

Adobe Audition for Windows 98/2000/XP is expected to ship in the U.S. and Canada by the end of August 2003. Adobe Audition will be available for an estimated street price of U.S. $299. Registered users of previous versions of Cool Edit Pro can upgrade to Adobe Audition for an estimated street price of U.S. $99; Adobe plans to offer a free upgrade from Cool Edit Pro 2.x to Adobe Audition.
