How To Make Videos With Great Audio | Part 2

In part two of this three-part series (recorded in December 2017**), I walk you through audio workflows for video in Adobe Audition. From using the Auto-Gate and Compressor functions in the re-imagined Dynamics effect to using the new Auto-Ducking feature, now part of Audition's Essential Sound Panel. You'll also get some tips for splitting stereo clips into mono stems, converting sample rate/bit rate and channel configurations, fixing digitally clipped audio, time stretching clips as well as Audition's unique REMIX feature, that automatically, dynamically recomposes any music track to any desired length...and 'essentially' does all the editing for you! Find timestamped chapters below.
