Adobe Soundbooth


Adobe Soundbooth is a complete audio studio.

Handle all of your digital audio tasks within a single application. Work with a multitrack mixing view, a mono and stereo waveform editing view, and audio effects; create music with loops; and burn audio CD's.

Record, mix, edit, and master digital audio files with powerful tools that bring flexibility and control to your desktop studio. Easily create music, produce radio spots, and restore imperfect recordings.

Edit video soundtracks more easily with the ability to view video frames in the Timeline and import a wide range of file formats, including AVI, native DV, MPEG, and WMV.

Work with more than 50 digital signal processing (DSP) tools and effects, mastering and analysis tools, audio restoration features, and third-party DirectX and VST plug-ins.

Create your own music using more than 5,000 performance-based, royalty-free music loops. Styles include Rock, Techno, Classical, Reggae, and more .

Restore old vinyl, remove hisses and hums, fix clipped audio, and recover previously unusable recordings with classic or automatic Click/Pop Eliminators, Noise Reduction, Hiss Reduction, and Clip Restoration effects.
