Adobe SoundBooth Released As Public Beta
October 26, 2006
Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today introduced the public beta of Adobe® Soundbooth™ software, a new innovative and intuitive audio software product for creating and editing audio and fixing common audio flaws using visually-oriented tools. Unveiled to customers for the first time this week at the MAX 2006 Adobe user conference in Las Vegas, creative professionals now have the opportunity to test this new beta download and submit feedback to the Adobe Labs at http://labs.adobe.com/soundbooth. 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.
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.
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.
The public beta of Adobe® Soundbooth for Intel-based Macintosh and Windows is now available as a free download at http://labs.adobe.com/soundbooth/.
