Previously, we talked about frequency, which determines the pitch of the sound you're hearing.…The other important part of measuring a sound is its amplitude.…In technical terms, amplitude is a level of change in the oscillation of…atmospheric pressure caused by sound waves.…In simpler terms, amplitude refers to the loudness of the sound.…The higher the amplitude the more powerful it is, so the more air it's pushing…around and the louder it sounds.…Quieter sounds are not as powerful, so they push less air around.…So together, frequency and amplitude give you the pitch and loudness of…the sound wave.…
In Audition, you'll probably spend most of your time working here with…the Waveform Editor.…We have an entire chapter coming up in which I'll go into detail, but basically…the Waveform Editor displays your audio file as a waveform where time is…measured on the horizontal axis and amplitude is measured on the vertical axis.…The height of the peaks you see here tell you how loud the sound is at any given time.…
