Adobe has introduced a public beta of Audition for Mac, its professional audio toolset for recording, mixing, editing and mastering.
The company says the software sits on a new underlying architecture. Adobe will aim it at broadcast and audio post-production markets, presumably seeing these as areas in which Apple’s own Logic suite isn’t entrenched.
Key features in Adobe Audition for the Mac include a fast new audio playback engine, native multi-channel support for 5.1 surround sound for professional results, noise reduction and restoration capabilities, and new audio effects including de-hummer, de-esser, and volume leveler.
“We are fortunate to have a strong community of audio professionals who have helped us shape Adobe Audition into an incredible application,” said Jim Guerard, vice president and general manager for Dynamic Media, Adobe. “By trying out the public beta of Audition for the Mac, you’ll be providing valuable input so we can deliver the best final product possible. Adobe Audition for the Mac is another example of Adobe delivering on our mission to provide industry leading, cross-platform content creation tools for creative professionals.”
