First Time Trying To Use Presets - Help

I just recorded a podcast interview for my podcast The Golf Improvement Podcast, and have some questions.

I did the recording through Skype, but the person on the other line was on a cell phone.

I loaded the presets in my present version of Audition, and then loaded the audio file.

So the questions…

  1. Should I normalize the audio to -0.1 db before I do anything else to it?

  2. I pulled the audio from the podcast into the Skype track. When I do that, does the track automatically do some processing of the audio file, or do I need to do something else?

  3. I tried to close the file that I had put into the preset. I got a message asking me if I wanted to save the preset file - I would have thought I would get a message to save the file that I pulled into the preset? Hope you can clear this up.

Thanks for the help.

Hi @TonyGIG thanks for posting your questions, see my answers below:

  1. Yes you can do, this generally helps with volume of audio, although the presets are already helping with it so you may find that’s too much - see how audio sounds before and after.
  2. Yes that will do everything you need it to.
  3. You will need to mix down the entire session file into a file to get all the presets applied. So go to Multitrack> Mixdown Session to new file > Entire Session in the menu bar in Audition. That will do the trick. Hope this helps!

Izabela, thanks for your reply and your help.

So to summarize - if I do a Skype interview I would a) Normalize first to -0.1 db, b) then pull the file into the Skype Preset, then c) then do the Multitrack process you note to let me save the file to a new file name. Correct?

It would be great to be able to see tutorial videos for all of the Preset processes.

Thanks again! Tony

Thanks Tony and yes that’s exactly it! You can also add your own intro and outro and do specific content cuts inside the multitrack session too if need be.

I will make sure to pass your comments re further videos as well @TonyGIG

I appreciate the feedback, as always, Izabela!!
