REAL Cool Tiny Knob

I'm always up for a shameless plug of Adobe Audition CS6. There are a boatload of great features that make it my personal goto tool for most of my audio production needs. From the recording environment aesthetics to the magical spectral view, there are far too many features that I regularly use to document them all. Well…maybe I could, but ...

Using a REAL Cool FIlter

Recording voice over audio in your home studio is sometimes difficult.  If you don't have a professional recording environment, you probably get sounds bleeding into your recordings.  Even if you found the quietest room in your house, the one most isolated from outside noise, you will (without proper soundproofing) inevitably have to deal with outside noise.  It's just part of ...
