Adobe Audition 3 from Adobe is software for recording, mixing, editing and mastering audio and contains a full feature set to achieve those ends. The software provides an all-in-one tool set for professional audio production and is perfect for the sound designer, musician, recording engineer, mastering engineer, or other audio-centric professional.
Faster multi-track editing is possible by providing "click-and-drag" fade handles on multi-track clips and in the edit view. Free-form selection in the frequency space with the Effects Paintbrush allows the user to apply effects in varying degrees to that selection. The Spot Healing Brush smooths over selected regions and automatically repairs clicks, pops, and other noises.
A large selection of effects are available for all aspects of music creation and support for VSTi virtual instruments further enhances the usefulness of the software. Direct to CD burning is also provided.
