Part of the Adobe Creative Suite, Audition (formerly Soundbooth) is a moderate to advanced digital audio editor. It is compatible with the other programs within the Adobe Creative Suite family.
We are currently in the process of updating to Adobe Creative Suite 5.5; all lab stations have 5.5, but laptops may still be running CS3.
Often there are other applications that work well with your software or do similar things and might be better suited to your task. Check out these related applications:
Garageband - Allows users to create music with virtual instruments and sound editing, as well as create podcasts.
Audacity - A great freeware program for editing audio.
Sountrack Pro - Advanced audio editing suite.
