Anyone use Adobe Audition?

Discussion in 'Recording' started by xcoloncrusherx, Jul 9, 2010.

  1. I'm trying to figure out how to access some sort of noise gate control in Adobe Audition. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Yes, yes, since 1996 when it was still called Cool Edit. It would certainly be helpful if you would indicate in what manner you would like to use a " noise gate"? It's on the drop-down menu under effects/amplitude. And you are some kind of control? What kind of control? Do you want to key the gate? Do you want a frequency selective key? And you are trying to do? Your question is sort of like how do you turn on a car. With a key. Where do you put the key? In the hole designed for it. And then what am I supposed to do with it? Do I turn it to the left or do I turn it to the right? That depends on whether you are driving a left hand drive car or a right hand drive car. And whether you are facing forward or reverse in the driver seat.

    Why do they make toilet paper?

  3. Sorry. My girl was here and rushing me. I use a terrible amp that has buzz and feed back and when distortion is used in the slightest way no notes are distinguishable. I'm looking for a way to help clean up a noisy, messy sounding, instrument. I am a beginner at going into depth with editing. All i'm asking is how to clean up an instrument and make it sound clean as possible. Is that better?

    You didn't specify whether it was a transistorized or a tube amplifier? Buzz & feedback are not uncommon even to some really good amplifiers. A lot of times the buzz is because the guitars pickups are picking up stray electromagnetic fields, from power transformers, power lines, power equipment, automotive ignition systems, etc.. But when an amplifier starts getting temperamental as you have described it might be worth a look into a schematic. This will show you where all of the electrolytic capacitors are in the circuitry. These electrolytic capacitors are similar in many ways to rechargeable batteries. Rechargeable batteries are only good for so many years as are electrolytic capacitors. These are the primary culprits that need to be replaced when rebuilding or restoring any kind of vintage electronics. Now not all capacitors need to be replaced. Only the ones that indicate a + & - that are polarized generally need to be replaced. There are many other kinds of capacitors that will far outlast your lifetime that do not need to be replaced such as ceramic, tantalum, polystyrene. But this is major component level repair & restoration. This should not be attempted by a beginner. The only proper tools which includes a good soldering iron & solder sucker. God help you if you get any of the polarities wrong.

    I'm going to make another suggestion for you. Since many folks here are interested in making their own recordings at home, a guitar amplifier is not 100% necessary anymore. There are numerous plug-ins available that can emulate guitar amplifiers & their cabinets. These actually sound quite good with none of the drawbacks of a broken amplifier. Of course, feedback isn't available unless you have a working amplifier from which to feedback from. And so in all reality if you are a good program manipulator, there's almost nothing you can do to create a fabulous and realistic sounding band, all from samples. And if you really want to record with a guitar amplifier, smaller ones actually work out better than larger ones. A cheap basic guitar amplifier with no specialty frills and features is one of the most versatile amplifiers you can use in your home studio. Go basic. Keep it simple. You can knows plug-in extra petals, extra effects processors, extra plug-ins in software to get to where you want to go. And you really shouldn't need to invest in much of anything else to get started. Most commercially available multitrack software already has all the dynamics processors, equalizers, reverbs, delays that you'll need to use. You might find that their presets are less than stellar sounding. For that reason alone, you need to learn how to better manipulate your software. You can make any preset sound way better by careful tweaking. You only need a specialty plug-in when there is a specialty plug-in effect that you can't live without. Otherwise, I've only purchased a couple of plug-ins my entire life. You just have to go for it. You'll get there.

    Adobe Audition has one of the best noise reduction programs available, especially for the money. It works very well and is quite simple.

    Audition is certainly great. I use it to clean up audio frequently.
    My favourite gate though, is on the waves ssl channel plugin, and the presets are the best Ive seen.
    I use it mostly for kick, snare, and buzz from my tube amp.

    Well you could always just manually edit the track, click the track, opens up edit mode, edit mode you highlight the track then Effects then Mute, or in my case I went and made it a keystroke, CTRL-F
