Audition CS6 Essential Training demonstrates all of the major features of Adobe Audition and prepares sound editors to start enhancing and correcting audio—whether it's music, dialogue, or other sound effects. Author and musician Garrick Chow begins by covering how to import, record, and manage media files, from extracting audio and importing video, to creating a new multitrack session from scratch. The course then dives deep into editing, repairing, and cleaning up audio files, using the Waveform and Multitrack Editors, and the Spectral Frequency Display. It also covers how to use built-in effects, how to mix both stereo and surround audio tracks, and how to work with video projects from Premiere Pro.
Okay, so I still have my Farm Project open in Audition, and again, I originally exported this from Adobe Premiere. I'm just going to quit Premiere for now, and in Audition I've added a music track and made a couple of other tweaks to my project. So let's say I'm happy with what I've done in Audition and I want to get back to editing the video in Premiere. Now in the first movie of this chapter I showed you how to open a single movie file sitting anywhere on your computer and how you could edit or add to the audio track of the movie. But you could only then export that audio track as a single file and you would have to then join that new audio track to the original video since audition can't export video.
But since I started working on this project in Premiere, you better believe I want to be able to move smoothly back into Premiere without having to export just a single audio file, because who knows? I may want to able to make some additional tweaks to the individual audio tracks in Premiere. Also, remember when I exported the project from Premiere it generated copies of the video and audio files. So no matter what I've done in Audition, my Premiere project is still exactly the way it was before I started working on it in Audition. So what I need to do is to get this new version of the audio tracks back into Premiere. We do this by going to the Multitrack menu and choosing Export to Adobe Premiere.
Now notice that it's going to be generating an XML file. Again, this is how Audition and Premiere manage the files they exchange between themselves. I'm going to leave that file name, and I'm also going to leave the location. It's again using the Adobe Audition Interchange folder it previously generated, and it's good to keep everything in one place. I'll leave the current sample rate. Under Options you can choose to Export each track as a stem. That means each separate track will be exported as its own separate file. You will want to do this if you want to maintain the ability to edit the tracks individually in Premiere, but if you have already created a final mix of the audio that you're happy with and you don't plan on changing any of the audio in Premiere, you can choose to mix down the session to a Mono, Stereo, or 5.1 surround file.
If I had created any busses, I could also export each bus as a stem which might be useful if you have a lot of tracks and many of them are routed through busses that you're happy with. I'll leave Export each track as a stem selected since I only have three audio tracks and I may want to tweak them in Premiere. I am also going to keep Open in Adobe Premiere selected so Premiere opens right away and now I'll click Export so it's generating the files. It's opening Premiere. Now because I click Premiere, it's asking me to locate the project I want to import the Audition tracks into. So again in this project, they are on my Desktop, they're in Farm Project, and there's the Adobe Premiere project file. It's importing the files.
Now Premiere is giving me the option of copying the Adobe Audition tracks to their own new tracks or to replace the existing tracks. So I can choose to copy them to any of the existing tracks or to New Audio Tracks. I'm going to choose New Audio Track and click OK, and if I scroll down here, those are the three new tracks in Audition. Now I'm going to go ahead and mute the original two tracks.

And we've got about 10 acres in Ojai, and it's all certified organic by CCOF. And we grow about a hundred different herbs, vegetables, flowers, fruits, and we sell mostly at the farmer's market. And also we sell to caterers, schools, restaurants. We try not to do any shipping. We try to keep it all local.)
