Pro tip
Match Clip Loudness can be used in the Multitrack Editor to conform clips to a particular standard nondestructively. 

Match Clip LoudnessMatch Clip Loudness

If you want to conform loudness standard outside Multitrack Editor or a session you may use Match Loudness panel to batch conform multiple files together by simply dragging the clips from the Files panel to the Match Loudness panel and selecting the desired loudness standard.

Hope this helps in understanding how to establish audio continuity by avoiding one section of the timeline sound disproportionately louder than the other. Refer to this page to explore the other videos of this series. Let us know if you have any questions.

Allows to edit a single audio file with higher precision. 

Allows mixing multiple audio tracks in a layer-based composition. 

It's destructive In nature. Saving any changes or applied effects overwrites the original audio file. 

It's non-destructive in nature. This editor uses existing media or creates new media files but never makes changes to the original media file. 

Useful for in-depth analysis and sample-accurate selections and processing 

Good for creating musical compositions, podcasts, and video post-production which require multiple audio tracks to be modified independently.

A few of the mics discussed in the video.

0:09 - Don't use an internal microphone  

0:16 - Condenser microphones sound great  

0:33 - Dynamic microphones are also a good choice

0:37 - Shotguns to create great sound for filmmakers

FAQ: What is a .sesx file? An intro to Multitrack editing.

Au composite1.png

 

Often you may want to edit and mix multiple audio tracks together. The Multitrack Editor in Audition is a tool designed for such tasks. Here you can mix multiple audio files and create layer-based tracks and compositions. It allows you to record and mix unlimited tracks, and each track can contain as many clips as you need, the only limits are hard disk space and processing power.

 

Multitrack Editor in Audition png.png

 

The Multitrack Editor is non-destructive, it allows you to make changes and adjustments to the track without affecting the original source files. It also allows realtime editing, meaning you can make the adjustments to the track during the playback and hear the changes made.

 

The collection of these audio tracks with the effects and adjustment applied is termed as a session. Audition saves this session in a file with .sesx format.

 

 

 

Audition Sesx icon.png

These .sesx files (session files) are the project files of Adobe Audion. They are similar to the project files of Premiere Pro (.prproj) and After Effects (.aep). 

These files contain no audio data themselves. Instead, they are small XML-based files that point to other audio and video files on the hard drive and have the info about the types of effects applied and their parameters. 
A session file tracks the following: 

Audio and Video files which are a part of the session. 

- Location of these files.
Envelopes and effects that are applied (such as volume, pan, and effect settings). 

 

While you are doing your edit or mix you can save the session (.sesx file) to pause your work and resume it later as required. And when you are done with the mix, you can export the multitrack mixdown as an audio file using Auditon or Adobe Media Encoder. 

 

Here are a few links that explain the complete procedure of importing, editing & exporting while using the Multitrack Editor.

  2. How to import audio files in the session?

  4. How to save the session? 

    https://helpx.adobe.com/in/audition/using/saving-exporting-files1.html#save_multitrack_sessions 

  5. How to export session Templates? 

    If you are working on multiple related projects or shows, you may want to have a common audio theme for these shows like an intro & outro. Session Templates can be used in such cases as it allows you to save audio tracks and effects applied as a theme that can be used as a preset. This can be then used as a starting point for your related projects. 

    https://helpx.adobe.com/in/audition/using/saving-exporting-files1.html#id_59417 

  6. How to migrate the session file along with the media to a different computer? 

    https://helpx.adobe.com/in/audition/using/saving-exporting-files1.html#id_2294 
    Tip: To easily migrate the session files, you may save the session files and the associated media files in a unique folder. If you later need to move the session to another computer, you can simply move the unique session folder. 

  7. How to export the session to external applications? 

    https://helpx.adobe.com/in/audition/using/saving-exporting-files1.html#export_sessions_to_omf_or_final_cut_pro_interchange_format
