In Soundbooth CS5 Essential Training, author Jeff Sengstack demonstrates how to record, edit, optimize, and enhance audio using the professional tools in Adobe Soundbooth CS5. This course covers basic audio edits, such as trimming, fading, and panning clips, removing unwanted noise, enhancing audio with special effects, and creating stereo blends from multiple tracks. An overview of recording hardware and a detailed explanation of core audio concepts are included as well. Exercise files accompany the course.
I want to show you how to apply and customize Advanced Effects, and you do that inside the Effects panel here, going down to the Effects button, clicking on that, and then clicking on Advance - or hovering over Advanced - and then selecting from one of these ten advanced effects. Let's just start with Analog Delay, the echo effect. Click on that. And the first thing you might want to do when you apply an Advanced effect - and it says Advanced. That'll give you the clue that you added an Advanced effect - is to click on Settings. That opens up that Effects dialog box. Each effect has its own dialog box, and you can adjust things here.
So, let's listen to it for a while. (Male Speaker: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,) (Male Speaker: that they are endowed by the) So as I makes changes here, you can begin to hear them show up as you're listening to it. (Male Speaker: their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these -) You are thinking, "Whoa, maybe I overdid that." Let me go back to the beginning of that default setting. I'll just click on Reset, and it goes back to whatever the default setting was for that particular preset. In this case, it was the default preset. If I want to change to a different preset, I can keep this dialog box open and just change the preset and watch the controls here change.
So, I go to Drain Pipe instead and watch how all those little controls shift around a bit. (Male Speaker: We hold these truths to be self-evident) Let me try a different preset, just so you can get a sense of how things are different. Jellyphones, look at these guys, as I change the Jellyphone. And that sounds pretty strange too, by the way. (Male Speaker: We hold these truths to be self-evident) There you go. So, this is the basic process. You add an Advanced effect. You can click on Settings to view the Settings dialog box, or you can start the process by simply selecting one of these presets, like Hot Fusion, trying it out.
(Male Speaker: We hold these truths. We hold these truths. We hold these truths) Whoa. Maybe I need to adjust the settings in that just a little bit. So, you go to Settings and realize that the Dry Out is 0, meaning you don't even hear the original audio at all. (Male Speaker: We hold these truths) We hear only the echo, so we can going to adjust that, for example. (Male Speaker: that all men, that all men, that all men) And then if you think, "Hm. Let me undo that," and you can always reset that. Now, as with standard settings, you can apply more than one effect. And in the rack here, I do want to let you know that if you apply a Rack Preset - I'll show you how to do that - that all the effects that show up inside your Rack Preset are always Advanced effects, which is great, because it gives you a lot of possibilities.
Let me click on Special: Sci-Fi Sounds here. We added this rack of three effects and notice, they are all Advanced, which means you can click on Settings for all these guys and get each one's individual dialog box. I'll click on Compressor, and there is the Compressor Advanced dialog box and the Phaser. Each one is a little different. We have seen Delay already. Let me show you what this sounds like. (Male Speaker: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,) So what I am asking you to do is to go out there and mess around with some of these effects, because I am sure that the more you play with them, the more possibilities you'll discover.
