Okay, so go over to you project files for the total training disk TPSWF06 wherever you have it installed. I actually have it on my desktop. So, go ahead and open your project files folder, and then double click on part 2, and then double click on lesson 1. And finally, double click on the Adobe Audition session file, globalsongintro.ses. .SES is the file format for Audition Sessions. Okay, and Adobe Audition 2.0 launches and you can now see the session file.
So, this is actually the session for the music for the show opener that we created in the previous part in after effects in Photoshop. So, go ahead and click on the main tab which is right here, and then hit the space bar on your keyboard to play the track back.
So, you should remember that music from the previous part. Go ahead and hit the space bar to stop playback, and now, let us just take a quick tour of the interface of Adobe Audition 2.0.
If you are actually a user of audition from previous versions, you are going to find a lot of new things in this release. So, this is going to be a good brief introduction. And I also want to mention that we are going to be focusing on creating a soundtrack for the promo for the TV show a Global Song, and in this particular part, I am going to be focusing on the features of Audition that are going to be necessary to create this soundtrack.
So, if you want a more in-depth tour of all the features of Audition 2.0, please go part 6 of this training where my friend Jason Levine is going to give you a very in-depth overview of Adobe Audition 2.0. But for now, let us start by taking a look at the three main views of Adobe Audition 2.0.
So, up here at the very top of the user interface, on the left hand side, you will see the toolbar or tool box that we have seen in the other Adobe Production Studio Applications. And then to the right, you are going to see the buttons for the three views of Audition.
Now, because we open to session file, it opened up in multi-track view. And as you can see right here, the multi-track button is activated. Now, this is the view in which you lay your various tracks down, and you mix them.
If you want to edit individual audio tracks or individual audio files, you go to the Edit View. So, go ahead to word says Edit to the button just to the left, and click it.
Now, you can see -- where seeing a single audio file. So, this is the view that you used when you want to edit individual audio tracks or individual audio files. Now, let us take a quick look at some of the things you can do in the Edit View.
Go ahead into the Files panel, over here on the left and double click the first wave file, chinabell01.94bpm.wave, and you can see it loads up in the Edit View.
Go ahead and hit the space bar on your keyboard to play this back.
And now, hit the space bar to stop playback.
Now, here in the Edit View, we are seeing the standard audio wave form which is the typical way that audio editing software displays audio files in a visual way. Now, this can be very useful for identifying different parts of the audio that you might want to edit. Let us just go ahead and zoom in on this file really quickly to get a look at it more detailed.
If we come up to the scroll bar at the top of the Edit View, right here, this green scroll bar, if you have a scroll mouse, you can actually use the scroll wheel on your mouse to zoom in and out of the file. Go ahead and scroll up, and as you can see, it zooms into the file.
Now of course, it zoomed in to an area where there is not much going on. So, go ahead and take the scroll bar and move it to the left. And now, you can see the audio file in more detail.
Now, if you do not have a scroll wheel on your mouse, you can simply grab the “ends” of the scroll bar here, and simply pull them out to zoom out, or pull them in to zoom in. And you can do this on either end. You can see it can do it on the left or the right.
So, it is very easy to zoom in, in extreme detail on your audio file.
