5.0 von 5 Sternen The Essential Guide to Audition - It Greatly Improved How We Work 18. Dezember 2012
Von Brian M. Stoppee - Veröffentlicht auf
When the CS6 edition of "Adobe Audition CC Classroom in a Book" (CIB) was released, we gave it a glowing 5 star review. We have been working in audio for decades, but that doesn't mean we are skilled sound engineers. Nothing could be further from the truth. We confess to not really connecting with Adobe's previous audio app, SoundBooth (SB). Once we studied (not read... studied!) Au CIB CS6, we owned a chunk of the power Adobe intended us to have in Au, which was missing from SB. Since then, we have been highly recommending Audition (Au). It has dramatically changed the audio portion of the HD movies we produce.

Classroom In a Book (CIB)
That said, how did the Adobe Press (Peachpit) team do with the CC edition? Excellent question. We were so curious that we had compared the two editions side-by-side, spread-by-spread.

CS6's final chapter (16) appears to be missing, but it's not. Most of the CC chapters are more extensive than the ones the CS6 edition had. So, with slightly more pages, the sixteenth chapter is available as a PDF, through a new online delivery initiative that that Peachpit is doing.

The DVD, which has been in the back the CIBs forever (this CIB, we estimate is our 96th, starting in 1997) appears to be missing as well, but that appearance is also deceiving. Adobe Press now delivers the work files online, too. Are they getting cheap? That's not it, at all. Unlike the first 26 years of Adobe apps, CC subscription model is a very different deal. Instead of a full version revision every 18 to 24 months, Adobe has committed to incremental dot releases. Adobe Press has devised a fabulous solution to keep your library of CC CIBs fresh, if the dot releases bring about major changes. At no additional charge, they have added new chapters and new work files, online, too. No, that doesn't mean you'll never need to buy another CIB. Life isn't like that. What you need from that life, right now, is found at [peachpit dot com slash redeem] with each copy of this book having a unique redemption code. The code is in the back of the book where the DVD used to be. So, when a major package of changes come to the apps, expect Adobe to deliver a set new CIBs.

At this point, the first Adobe Audition CC has been out there for around a year and a half. The full package of Adobe's 16 core desktop apps included Audition 7.0. There was the June release of a series of CC 2014 apps.

Audition had some nice minor revisions but at this writing Au has moved from June 2013's Audition 7.0 to 7.1 to 7.2. There has not been anything significant enough for Adobe Press to introduce a new CIB for Audition, at a time when they published 9 CIB volumes for the apps Adobe branded as "CC 2014," of which Audition 7.x is one of those to get the year tacked onto its name.

Who Needs this Book?
We are Adobe Community Professionals (ACP) and run an Adobe/Apple Authorized Training Center in conjunction with the Virginia higher educational system. CIB is a mainstay of the training process. We also go back to beta testing PageMaker 1.0, in 1985, so the whole package of training and testing methods, for media technologies, are quite common to us.

It's okay to ask, "Is this book for newbies or people who have been in this as long as you?" To answer, not just for Audition CC 2014 CIB but for all the CIBs, which go with those core CC apps, the only answer is, "Both!"

If you are an Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI), you need this book. If you want to become an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE), you need this book. If you have been working in other Adobe CC apps and need audio, but know next to nothing about it, you need this book, too. Have you just wondered how all the sound engineering and audio creativity happens in the making of music, movies, and the news reports? Then, you're this book's target audience, too.

We write these book reviews like a journal, taking notes and experiencing the lessons as we go, sharing as we learn. The review documents then become our quick references when we need to look up important aspects of the CIBs. The complete set of CIBs, which cover the 16 core CC 2014 apps, equal 4,811 collective pages. For that reason, we document the CIBs with an all inclusive table of contents which cover all of the book's topics, subtopics, and sub-subtopics.

We share the interactive PDFs on our website and publish the full reviews to, so as many people can benefit from this, as possible.

Chapter 1 - Audio Interfacing
At first glance, some readers will roll their eyes at where this book begins. It looks like a bunch of boring technical information about how audio hardware interfaces with Macs and Windows PCs. By the time you get to the end of the chapter, you might get it. Or, it might take you a few chapters until you go, "That's why I needed to learn that stuff." So, don't breeze through this. Give it a half hour or so.

This review is all about providing you with tools to excel with Au CC 2014 CIB. Here's our breakdown on what you need to study:

Chapter 2 - The Audition Environment
If you've been shooting HD movies, with a dSLR (digital single lens reflex) camera, and have a good handle on it, but you're getting into Audition, because the visual side of your work is great but you're audio stinks, Audition is not going to feel like completely comfortable territory, if you are hoping it's some little plug-and-play app.

Nothing in the 16 Adobe core apps, which come in the CC package, is plug-and-play. They are highly professional gear. Audition does resemble apps like Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects, but extensive study is going to be required if you want to get anywhere close to mastering Audition. And, Au is relatively different than the other 15 apps.

This chapter is your Audition jumping off point.

The layout of this chapter permits a great deal of information to be included in these pages without it ever feeling like it's crammed or confusing. Nevertheless, you're going to need at least 90 minutes to try to get very, very at home with this UI (user interface) and the app's key panels.

Here's your guide:

Navigate within Files + Sessions 38-39
Navigation via Zooming 39-40
Navigate w/Keyboard Shortcuts 41
Navigation w/Markers 41-42
Navigate w/the Transport 43-44

Chapter 3 - Basic Editing
If you're new to audio editing, don't let the name fool you. There's nothing "basic" about this chapter. Even if you're coming into this from another audio app, this is the point in the learning process where Audition becomes more clear and you begin to feel you have a handle on what it's all about. You might need an hour and a half, if you're working though it slowly. And, if you are new to audio, slowly is the only way to go.

Chapter 4 - Signal Processing
Don't let this chapter's name fool you, either. The term "signal processing" sounds like something only those with an electrical engineering degree should be doing. If it also sounds like nothing relative to what you are trying to do, you're probably wrong. The chapter is a reference work. Au comes with a bunch of effects which are essential in refining your tracks. Chances are the terminology makes no sense, at first. This chapter makes it all come together. However, there's a huge amount of information in it. Bookmark as many of the following as you need to:

Chapter 5 - Audio Restoration
The word "restoration" gives the impression that you're working with archival clips, like retouching old photos with Photoshop. But, this "restoration" is relative to cleaning up even new audio. We use the majority of everything discussed in this chapter for many of our Au projects. These lessons deserve at least an hour. If you have been using the Photoshop lasso tool to select portions of images, you'll be in your comfort zone doing the same for audio segments. Bookmark many of these topics, too:
Audio Restoration 120
Reduce Hiss 120-122
Reduce Crackles 122-123
Reduce Pops + Clicks 123-124
Reduce Broadband Noise 124-126
De-Hum a File 126
Remove Artifacts 127-128
Manual Artifact Removal 129
Alternate Click Removal 130-131
Sound Removal 131-132

Chapter 6 - Mastering
Craig Anderton, who wrote this book, appears to know and be able to recite the technology and creativity of the music recording world in his sleep. This short chapter is something of a thrill for anyone who has ever envisioned being seated at the big recording studio board, on the other side of the glass, while the tracks for the next Grammy award-winner are being laid down. Whether you work with Audition on an 11" MacBook Air or at a bank of 2 or 3 Wacom Cintiq 24HD touch displays, these lessons make you feel like maybe you could do this, like a pro. It's so much fun that you'll want to give it an hour. However, this is not just playing make-believe. This empowers you to the point that Audition is no longer intimidating. By the end of the chapter, it feels like you own Au.
Mastering Basics 136
1. Equalization 136-137
2. Dynamics 138
3. Ambience 139
4. Stereo Imaging 140
5. "Push" the Drum Hits + Apply the Changes 141
Mastering Diagnostics 142-145
Check Phase 142-143

Chapter 7 - Sound Design
If we had not been blessed to hang around some fabulous video-audio professionals, in the late 1980s, we may have never come to know the "sound design" term and concept for its early emergence into the digital environment. The term "design" may remind you of the visuals in a website, the look of a highly graphic book, or the art direction of a Hollywood feature film's sets, lighting, and costumes. Yet, the same is all applicable to the audio signatures of such films. Some of the samples and projects this CIB provides are super cool. When you've completed the lessons, you will appreciate all of what motion picture sound is about, for the rest of your life. Plus you should finally have a keen understanding of what it means to design sound:
Sound Design 150
Create Rain Sounds 150-151
Create a Babbling Brook 152
Create Insects at Night 152-153
Create an Alien Choir 153-154
Create Sci-Fi Machines Effects 154-156
Create an Alien Drone Flyby 156-158
Extract Frequency Bands 158-159

Chapter 8 - Creating and Recording Files
So far, this book has been all about postproduction, meaning all our audio has been captured during the process of obtaining these clips. Without fail, as we appraoch a project's completion, we feel there's something which requires a voice over (VO). Until we got to know Audition, we'd take a familiar but less than ideal approach. The previous edition of this book upped our VO game. If you've been wanting to do live recording, you'll be experimenting with these lessons and doing a little extra credit work for around an hour.
Record into the Waveform Editor 164-165
Record into the Multitrack Editor 167-169
Check Remaining Free Space 169-170
Drag and Drop into an Audition Editor 170
Import Tracks as Individual Files from an Audio CD 172-173
Import Tracks as a Single File from an Audio CD 172-173
Saving a Template 173-174

Chapter 9 - Multitrack Editor Orientation
Have you been working in Premiere Pro? Then multitrack editing is not so mysterious. Though we have been working with Audition for over two years, we still could not breeze through this chapter. These lessons were a much-needed revisit to some Au features we have the need to perfect. There are some things we never learned about channel mapping or how to side-chain events. If you have no idea what we've just said, give this chapter at least an hour and it will become as plain as a sunny day.
Multitrack Production 178
Multitrack + Waveform Integration 178-179
Marker Differences in Waveform + Multitrack 180
Change Track Colors 180
Loop Selections for Playback 181
Track Controls 181-191

Channel Mapping in the Multitrack Editor 191-192
Apply Channel Map Editor in the Multitrack Editor 192
Side-Chaining Effects 193-194

Chapter 10 - The Multitrack Mixer View
This is another very short chapter. Some will jump in and out of it in less than a half hour. It took us through the intricacies of the Au boards, on a very advanced level. If you have been working on these lessons, all day. Take a break before getting into this one, or you'll never retain these important details. Be sure you are acquainted with:
Mixer View Basics 198-199
Mixer Show/Hide Options 200-201
Channel Scrolling 202
Rearrange Mixer Channel Order 202-203
Hardware Controllers 203-204

Chapter 11 - Editing Clips
These lessons are both fun and challenging. It pushes the reader into some very advanced uses of Au, which you may not have known were there. It starts out with styles used by DJs, whom you may think of as knocking down projects on-the-fly, but all of this is very planned, purposeful, and conceivably complex. If you want to study it, to the level we recommend, devote 90 minutes to these lessons:
Create DJ-Style Continuous Mixtape w/Crossfades 208-210
Mix/Export a Collection of Clips as a Single File 210-211
Select + Merge All Clips into a Single File 211
Edit for Length 212
Edit Individual Clips in the Waveform Editor 213-214
Panning Individual Clips 214
Combining Ripple Delete Edits + Crossfading 215
Clip Stretching to Make Fine Length Adjustments 216
Clip Edits: Split, Trim, Volume 217-218
Stutter Edits 218-219
Add Effects to Individual Clips 219
Extend a Clip via Looping 220

Chapter 12 - Creating Music with Sound Libraries
"Sound Libraries" is another term which audio professionals know, but it means nothing to the rest of us. Today, these "libraries" are more familiar as stock audio clips.

On the surface, this might seem like an odd exercise of pulling together clips as if it's some kind of busy work. Nothing could be further from the truth. Using this is a great opportunity to hone your editing skills.
Sound Libraries 224
Getting Started 224-226
Build a Rhythm Track 226-227
Add Percussion 228
Add Melodic Elements 229
Loops w/Different Pitch+Tempo 230-231
Add Effects 232

Chapter 13 - Recording In The Multitrack Editor
This chapter is another fun one, for us. It goes deeper into the process begun in the previous chapter. Like chapter twelve, even if you're not working in Au for music, it improves your Audition skills. We fully understand that if you're using Au to augment your work in other CC apps, investing another hour might make you a little antsy, but calm down. It's worth it.
Get Ready to Record a Track 236-237
Set Up the Metronome 237-238
Record a Part in a Track 239
Record an Additional Overdub 239
"Punching" Over a Mistake 240-241
Composite Recording 241-243

Chapter 14 - Automation
There's a great deal of power in Audition, but for some tasks it may seem extremely tedious. You do basic things over and over, again and again, to the point that you begin to feel like you're a line worker in a fast food restaurant, which has a very limited menu board. Great audio engineering avoids the tedium by automating tasks. This is where you learn how to do that.
Automation 248
Clip Automation 248-249
Move Parts of an Envelope or an Entire Envelope 250
Keyframe Hold 251
Clip Effects Automation 251-253
Show/Hide Clip Envelopes 253

Automating Fader Mixes 255
Editing Envelopes 256-258
Create Envelopes in the Automation Lane 258-259
Precision Keyframe Editing 259
Protect Automation Envelopes 259-260

Chapter 15 - Mixing
The final chapter in the bound book isn't a final exam or a last word. It's more of a door opener as to where you need to go, next, and the skills you can find within yourself to get there. Side-bars such as "The brain and mixing" and "Acoustics and hearing" set the tone (pun intended) going forward. It ought to get both your left and right brain's lobes stimulated for the power this book has provided, as more of a "Start" button. A good example is the use of what you've learning in the "Test acoustics" section.
Mixing 264
Test Acoustics 264-267
Acoustics + Hearing 265
Test for Phase 265-266
Create Test Tones 266-267

Groups 282-283
Add a Fade to the End 283
Export a Stereo Mix of the Song 284
Burn an Audio CD of the Song 285
Export to SoundCloud 285

Chapter 16 - Audio/Video Applications
As mentioned earlier, one of the most "fun" chapters from the previous edition is not in the bound book, anymore. It was a chapter on scoring audio to film clips and how composers of Hollywood films lay music into a movie. Yes, it was fascinating, but could the readers apply this to their own workflow? The PDF chapter has been fully rewritten and is applicable to many audio + visuals uses. You'll want to study this one. For our multimedia purposes, it brings it all together.
Importing a Video BL-4
Video for Audio BL-4
Automatic Speech Alignment BL-5-7
Integration w/Premiere Pro BL-7-12

It may be inappropriate for us to crown this as "The Best Book on Adobe Audition" since the number of books on the app are minimal. For anyone wanting to get into Au for extensive work or just perfecting voice tracks from dSLR talking-head footage, this is THE must-have learning resource. It's your single-source desktop reference guide. This is beyond-the-shadow-of-a-doubt a five star book. We're impressed at how the previous edition's "best" got even better.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Great program. Useless book. 30. Dezember 2013
Von Doug Lipman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
When I signed up for Adobe's Creative Cloud suite a year ago, I wanted to learn the Audition program first. Given that this book had good reviews, I purchased it immediately.

Since then, I have tried to find out what this book is good for. But I have failed to find it useful for anything. Perhaps it's me and my way of thinking, but I've given this book every chance I could figure out to give it.

Let me say: I was not new to audio editing. I was familiar with Audacity and fairly expert on the now-discontinued 2-track editor, Bias Peak.

I guess the basic problem with this book for me is this: This book takes a tutorial approach. Sounds good, right? Each interface element or effect is accompanied by steps to take, to use it with a sample file from the book's included CD. BUT there is no real conceptual overview, nothing saying that, "the basic logic of Audition is this... and to accomplish this kind of task, here's what you'll need to do..." At the same time, the tutorials are brief enough and limited enough that they don't give you any depth at all in using the program's features. Net result for me: no understanding and no useful skills.

I tried in vain to learn simple things, such as how to move the playhead around or how to quickly back up or go forward by a window-width. The index isn't that helpful, either, in that it fails to list many important things. For example, the only entry in the index for "playhead" is page 38, where it is explained that what I call the playhead is now called the CTI or "current time indicator." But the only index entry for "current time indicator" is also to page 38! As it happens, there are several other references to actually DOING things with the CTI (usually referred to, by the way, as the "playhead,") but none of them are findable from the index.

What was really useful - and what kept me from giving up on learning Audition altogether - was the Infinite Skills video set, available here: Learning Adobe Audition CS6 - Training DVD - Tutorial Video . Maybe I'm just better suited to watching someone interact with the program than to reading written instructions. But I've found other written sources to be helpful - including Adobe's free Adobe Audition User Guide.

Just today, I needed to learn about CD mastering. I thought, "Well, maybe this is what this book is good for - a brief overview of what mastering is and how to do it." No such luck. There IS a chapter called "Mastering," but the overview is just fluff: e.g., mastering is important, start with a well-recorded piece, and, by the way, Adobe Audition is great for mastering. Then the tutorial segments are "do this, then do this," but they don't really give me any idea how to do anything else except the few, fairly specific tasks described. (E.g., "Push the drum hits.")

In the end, I found it unhelpful for getting a basic feel for the program, although I can imagine that others might have a different experience. I found it unable to help me know enough specifics to actually USE any particular feature. I also found it unable to give me any overview of how Audition is set up or of why I would want to do most of the tasks the book describes.

Instead of purchasing this book, I suggest downloading the free User Guide from Adobe, then both 1) purchasing a video series (there are several choices that seem good, including several courses on Udemy) and 2) browsing Adobe TV and Youtube for videos on specific features not covered in a basic series.

I don't like to give bad reviews of things, but this particular book has not been helpful to me at all. I regret the price and the time I wasted trying to learn from it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Studio in a box...and a book 30. April 2013

Adobe Audition is an audio program that is part of the CS6 design suite. It includes easy-to-use advanced digital editing tools as well as multi-track recording capabilities all at the same time, allowing for artists to more easily edit, manipulate, and create audio sessions.

This book, while short compared to most Adobe textbooks, is packed full of colored pictures and step-by-step tutorials to walk you through the program with the greatest of ease. It goes in depth with how to best approach the navigation of the software, as well as how to use it effectively to reduce errors and to produce high quality and professional audio tracks.

A disc accompanies this book, adding an even more in depth sense of learning as all of the files needed to complete the tutorials are included, thus reducing the time spent in finding alternative resources on the Internet. Each page is marked with a green dot and the word `Note,' followed by a helpful blurb about the information on the page, a part of the tutorial, a shortcut, or other ways to approach the outcome.
"Although there are no `rules' about creating a piece of music, it's common to start with a rhythm track consisting of drums and bass, and then add other melodic elements."
The end of each chapter features a Review Question and Answer segment perfect for both the college student or leisurely or die-hard professional. The questions covers the key points featured in each segment and are meant to ensure that the key points that are being taught are, in fact, retained. The beginning of each chapter gives the reader a lesson overview and an approximate time it should take to complete said tutorial, which was a pleasant surprise as my previous experience with most technology-based textbooks lack these simple components.

While I felt the book could have been thicker and contained even more tutorials than the sixteen included as well as more information about Adobe Audition CS6, it does cover the basics and includes the updates from previous versions, so those already familiar will feel they can skip around to be brought up to speed, and those who have never used this software will at least have a basic understanding how how this program works and be capable of performing some basic audio mixes and tracks for whatever project you have up your sleeve.

I was able to figure out Adobe Audition without taking tons of classes or hiring outside tutoring. It's a good investment.
