- Hi, I'm Jeff Sengstack, the author of Soundbooth CS5 Essential Training. Soundbooth CS5 lets you record, edit, optimize, and enhance audio. In the upcoming tutorials, I explain the entire Soundbooth workflow. I help you get a handle on analog and digital audio, show you how to set up and use recording hardware, and take you through some basic audio edits, like trimming, fading, and panning clips. If your audio has clicks or other noises, that you might hear on old vinyl records for example, I show you how to remove those unwanted sounds. If you wanna give your audio some specialized qualities, like reverb, a deep, booming bass, or some strange distortions, I go over all the effects Soundbooth has to offer.

I use the professionally recorded multi-track studio session to show you how to mix several instrumental and vocal tracks into a pleasing stereo blend. With Soundbooth CS5, you can now access more than 120 music scores. Soundbooth has more than 10,000 sound effects. I give you tips on how to track down what will work for your project and then how to edit and mix them with your other audio clips. Soundbooth gives you a lot of creative latitude and some easy to use controls, so let's start making music together.
