In today's modern age, quality sound plays an essential role in media production. Adobe Audition CC is one of the most popular audio editing software tools used by professionals worldwide. With its advanced features and easy-to-use interface, Adobe Audition CC provides everything you need to make high-quality recordings.
This article focuses on adding bass to your audio, specifically using Adobe Audition CC. We will outline three easy steps in detail to achieve a richer tone and give your audio that extra boost.
Step 1: Volume
Begin by turning up the volume of the raw, unprocessed audio by using the volume icon in the bottom left of the track. Select Match Clip Loudness and set a Target Loudness - this will ensure that the volume is consistent throughout your audio recording.
Step 2: Equalize
To reduce the bass frequencies in an audio file, an equalizer should be used. Adobe Audition CC provides various options to adjust the equalizer. The Graphic Equalizer is the easiest option to use as it has sliders to adjust frequencies. Experiment with different equalizer options in Audition to find the best adjustment for your audio file. For example, you can use the Parametric Equalizer to remove some of the bass by dragging the "H" down and to the left or add high-end sound by dragging up the curve.
Step 3: Dynamics
After you've equalized, you can use the Dynamics effect to improve the sound. The Amplitude and Compression effects are great tools to increase the volume of the whole audio file. Amplify is the simplest effect to increase the volume. Use the Compressor and Limiter to maximize the sound of your audio. The Compressor will level out the volume peaks while the Limiter will prevent the volume from being too loud. Another important tool to use here is MakeUp Gain, which will increase the volume after the compression effect has been applied. Use it to make the final adjustments and ensure that the audio levels are consistent throughout.
We recommend adjusting the incoming levels on the audio interface or the device providing the audio signal to increase the level of the recorded audio. Audition only records what it is sent by the audio driver. Increasing the volume levels after the recording can result in unwanted noise and hum.
