. Adobe Soundbooth is available 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 Soundbooth is a completely new, highly intuitive audio creation and editing toolset designed to accelerate the integration of sound into video and Flash workflows,” said Jim Guerard, vice president and general manager, Dynamic Media at Adobe. "Our customers asked us to make Soundbooth cross-platform because so many creative shops rely on both Macs and Windows based PCs. We look forward to the feedback from the creative community as we refine the product over the coming months."

Moving forward, Adobe 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.

Easy to use tools for Flash and Video workflows

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.

“Soundbooth is the perfect audio tool for our designers,” said Matt Rodriguez, president/executive director at Plexipixel. “Its features are focused on the tasks and problems we face regularly. The cue integration with Flash and FLV is huge and having designers that can do their own audio work will save us time everyday.”

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.
