Soundbooth CS3 from Adobe is a stand-alone software application that allows for creating, editing and cleaning up audio in film, video, and Adobe Flash software projects. Alternatively, the software can be launched from inside Adobe's Premiere Pro using the "Edit in Soundbooth" command. After the edits are complete, the files are automatically updated back in the Adobe Premiere Pro time-line or project window.

Using on-clip controls, the user is able to make fast edits, while intuitive task-based tools allow for cleaning up recordings, polishing voice-overs, customizing music, applying sound effects and much more. Built for video editors, web designers/developers and motion graphics artists, Soundbooth CS3 software delivers tools for everyday audio editing, sound design and music creation, all within a familiar Adobe interface.

Included with the software are dozens of Soundbooth Scores. These are music themes that can be customized to match a given project. Intensity can be adjusted to match the project's visual mood, along with length changes to accommodate different clip lengths. Additional music themes and sound effects can be downloaded from Soundbooth Resource Central, an Internet resource provided by Adobe.

The software's intuitive interface allows even the novice "audio editor" to achieve professional results and is available for both Windows XP/Vista equipped PCs, as well as Intel based Mac computers.
