Adobe Soundbooth Public Beta for Apple Mac and Windows Released

Adobe rolls out the public beta of Adobe Soundbooth software, a new audio software product for creating and editing audio and fixing common audio flaws using visually-oriented tools. Creative professionals now have the opportunity to test this new beta download and submit feedback to the Adobe Labs. Adobe Soundbooth is available now for both Intel-based Macintosh and Windows systems. Designed from the ground up to deliver high-quality sound to web and video workflows, Adobe Soundbooth enables creative professionals to quickly record, edit and create pristine audio without requiring training in sound production. Tight integration with Macromedia Flash from Adobe and Adobe Premiere Pro enables Soundbooth users to easily remove noise from recordings, polish voiceovers, and customize music to fit a production.

Adobe also plans to continue to develop Adobe Audition as a standalone product for audio professionals working in markets such as broadcast radio. Adobe plans to offer Soundbooth in place of Adobe Audition as the audio component in its integrated video solution, Adobe Production Studio. Adobe Soundbooth includes the tools creative professionals need to handle customary audio production tasks with ease and efficiency. Video and interactive Web designers can record new dialog tracks, sound effects or other audio assets or transform existing audio files with sample-accurate tools that cut, copy, paste, fade, stretch, and add effects. Soundbooth also provides creative professionals with tools that fix common flaws in audio recordings and streamlined mastering tools to clarify vocals and polish files after editing. Users can also speed the process of creating customized music to accompany their projects with the AutoComposer feature.

Creative professionals can use Soundbooth to easily import audio assets from Adobe Premiere Pro for precision editing and to add music. Creating animation cues for use in Flash is also fast and efficient with the ability to lay down markers that can be exported as XML and then used with Actionscript in Flash.
