Adobe Soundbooth CS4 software gives web designers, video editors, and other creative professionals the tools to create and polish audio, customize music, add sound effects, and do much more.
Adobe Sound Document (ASND) file format
The new Adobe Sound Document packages multiple tracks into an ASND file that can be shared easily with Adobe Premiere® Pro CS4, Flash® CS4 Professional, or After Effects® CS4 software without modifying the original files.
Easily adjust the volume of your dialogue and sound effects tracks, or adjust the volume of your audio over time.
Automatic volume correction
Equalize volume with one click, or use new volume-matching functionality to quickly match the volume of multiple clips to one another or to a single reference volume level.
MP3 Compression Preview
Preview the sound quality of different MP3 compression settings, and view the new file size before committing to specific compression settings to achieve the results you want.
Edit score clips in place. The Context menu provides more options for a selected keyframe. Make accurate selections within your content by using snap selection boundaries, and do much more.
Adobe Creative Suite integration
Jump directly into Soundbooth from within other Adobe Creative Suite® components: Flash CS4 Professional, Adobe Premiere Pro CS4, or After Effects CS4. The ASND document can be easily shared with Flash Professional, Adobe Premiere Pro, and After Effects.
Create loops more easily with automatic beat detection. You can adjust the in and out points by individual beats and adjust the minimum and maximum frequency, as well as the beat detection sensitivity.
Organizing and accessing scores
Browse downloaded Soundbooth Scores by different genres with the easy-to-use Scores panel. Access even more scores via Resource Central (Internet connection required).
Improved Soundbooth Score workflow
Easily locate and preview Soundbooth Scores in Resource Central. Select a Soundbooth Score, and customize it to match your project. Combine, mix, or match multiple scores on a single track or on multiple tracks.
Turn spoken dialogue into text-based, timecode-accurate metadata that makes your video searchable. Search keywords to locate and display what you're looking for — or even cut video based on the script.
