Step one : working In Edit View

Recording a new file:

Opening an existing audio file:

If your file is already in a numerical format:

You can also import audio from a CD direct in Audition:

For all of this, you can also use the "Control+O" shortcut or this icon:

The Audition environment:

Your new audio file is now displayed in the edit view, also called the waveform view, ready for editing...

Remark: to mix several sounds, you use another view: the multipist one.
You can switch from one view to the other by clicking those buttons:

Here are several components that you will use in Audition:

The Waveform Display:

This is the main window where your audio files are displayed for editing. Your audio appears in the shape of a waveform.

The Display Range Bar (above the waveform) indicates which part of the entire waveform is currently being viewed in the waveform display. When you zoom in on your waveform, the bar will become smaller in size, as you are viewing a smaller portion of your entire audio file.

The basic audio functions:

Stop - Play - Pause - Play to end - Play looped -
Go to beginning - Rewind - Fast forward - Go to end - Record.

Remark: in both views, you can also play the track or the selection clicking the space bar.

The Zoom Controls:

The zoom controls allow you zoom in either horizontally (magnifies time) or vertically (magnifies amplitude) with respect to your waveform.

There is of course many other things, many toolbar you can display or not, you can also test the other buttons, the different options...
