Video: Dynamically linking to Premiere Pro and After Effects projects

I want to show you how Soundbooth relates to other products in the Adobe Creative Suite. This will just be a demonstrations. There won't be any exercise files, just kind of follow along. Now what this is it's called round-trip audio editing. It means that you can take a file that you have saved in Soundbooth as ASND file. It might have multiple tracks, for example, and you can open it in Premiere, but if you want to go back and edit it in Soundbooth you can if you want to, let's say, in this particular thing we are working with that has multiple tracks with the vibes and the singer and a keyboard listen to this for a second.

Dynamically linking to Premiere Pro and After Effects projects

I want to show you how Soundbooth relates to other products in the Adobe Creative Suite. This will just be a demonstrations. There won't be any exercise files, just kind of follow along. Now what this is it's called round-trip audio editing. It means that you can take a file that you have saved in Soundbooth as ASND file. It might have multiple tracks, for example, and you can open it in Premiere, but if you want to go back and edit it in Soundbooth you can if you want to, let's say, in this particular thing we are working with that has multiple tracks with the vibes and the singer and a keyboard listen to this for a second.

If you want to go back, lets say, just adjust the vibes, not the whole thing. You can do that in Soundbooth. You can't do that in Premiere and so that's why it's a good thing, by the way, to save multitrack sessions as ASND the file. So, you can go back and edit individual tracks. Let me show you how that works here in Premiere. There are two basic ways to get back the Soundbooth with a file, like this. You right-click on the file here in the timeline and then say Edit in Adobe Soundbooth, Edit Source File, or take the same basic approach by going Edit, Edit in Adobe Soundbooth, Edit Source File.

That opens up that multitrack file here in Soundbooth. Let's say I just want to adjust just the vibes, which I could not do in Premiere. I can only do it here. I will Edit the vibes by clicking the Edit button. Let's add obvious Effect like Convolution Reverb so you can hear it, check the settings here and pick some really obvious thing like a Massive Cavern, see if that sounds like here with the vibes. And hopefully you will be able to hear it that inside the mix when we are done. We will Save and Close there and we will go back to the mix by clicking Back and click a couple of things here into that sounds like.

So you can hear that obvious change to the vibes it actually sounds pretty cool. What we will do is we will save this file now here in Soundbooth, go File > Save, and it will save it as an ASND file, which when they go back to Premiere Pro. It will show up as the new file. You will notice this little spinning circle here indicating that something is going on. The Premiere Pro is reacting to the fact that you have changed that file and that change is showing up here in Premiere.

I will just show how that works by playing it back. So, you can hear the changes we have made and if you are thinking, I really want to fix that again or adjust it someway. You can always go back and edit it in Soundbooth the same way we did before, and those changes will show up here in Premiere Pro. The other side of that round-trip editing is when you start inside Premiere Pro, as opposed to the starting with the file from Adobe Soundbooth. So, let me just show a different video here. We will take the horse riding video clip and add that to this sequence icon to the timeline, and there is some audio down here.

If I want to change that audio if I want to apply some effects that Soundbooth can apply well, I can simply right- click on this, and say Edit in Soundbooth. Now this is not something created in Soundbooth. This is something we're going to work on in Soundbooth. When you do that, you do what's called Render and Replace. So, what it does is it takes the audio from this video and creates a separate audio file. That audio file shows up in Premiere, but that also opens up Soundbooth with that audio file present right here inside this editing area.

I will show you that part of you file. Right now, if want to let's say apply an effect to that, which I wouldn't necessarily want to do, but I want to show you this as an example. I'll just select Effects. Let's say we will do a little dynamics here, actually let's add a little delay so that will be an obvious thing it will like an eco. It will be really obviously different. I want you to see the difference and see how that works. So, I will click OK. Now I will just save this file, say Save, and it will save the extracted files.

Now let's go back to Premiere and see what we got there. You will notice that the extracted file has been added to replace the original audio that's attached to this horse riding. The horse riding file itself still exists as an AVI file, but now you have got this horse riding AVI with the audio extracted added to it. You haven't change the original. You have taken the original and made a copy and change the audio and that. Let's go right here. You can hear that again. So that affect that we added in Soundbooth is now showing up inside of Premiere, and that's the round-trip audio editing you can do with Soundbooth and other Adobe products.
