Editing and processing software developer Adobe has announced some spiffing up of its Audition DAW.
New is “Punch and Roll.” The feature provides efficient production workflows in both waveform and multitrack for longform recording, including voice over and audio book creators, the company said.
Durin Gleaves, product manager, Audio at Adobe, said, “Punch and roll recording brings a new set of time-saving tools when recording voiceovers and longer performances. Fiddling with editing tools can disrupt your flow and make for a less cohesive recording. Punch and Roll lets producers fix mistakes in the moment and continue recording without missing a beat.”
A little more specialized is autoducking for ambient sound. This feature, the company says, is powered by Adobe’s Sensei artificial intelligence engine. It allows for dynamic adjustments to ambient sounds against spoken dialog.
Gleaves said, “Last year, Audition delivered auto-ducking for music … to the Essential Sound panel. Now, ambience auto-ducking brings the same dynamic volume keyframing magic, while keeping the spatial effects that give life to those environmental recordings and leaving more time for the creative part of production.”
