Audio Editing with Adobe Audition (Weekend)
This course will introduce participants to working in digital audio; beginning with recording and importing audio files to mastering and exporting for different presentation formats. We will cover basic editing and mixing, while looking into some of the available effects and audio manipulation techniques.
While Adobe Audition will be the software focused on for this course, many of the principals and techniques can be applied to alternative Digital Audio Workstations (DAW) such as ProTools, Reaper, Logic Pro, Studio One and more. Included will be a brief introduction to these other DAWs available to suit a range of budgets.
- Overview of hardware and software
- Recording, editing and mixing
- Working with video and transfer between applications
Students will take a practical understanding of audio post-production for a variety of purposes (e.g. audio for film & video, music production, sound design).
Who should take this course
Anyone interested in digital audio post-production.
There are no pre-requisites, although there will be a short section on working with video so some understanding in this area may be beneficial.
Please note: This course is for students aged 18 and older

IMPORTANT - Adobe ID Login for Short Course Students
Students will need to create an account with Adobe (unless you already have one) in order to access the Adobe suite at the college – instructions are included below. You will need to use a personal email address to create this. If you already have an account with Adobe, please make sure you bring your login details with you on the first day of the course.
- Creating an Adobe account is free.
- The software will only be accessible when logged into a UAL networked computer
- The same account can be used outside of the University, but software will only be accessible through a personal paid subscription that students will need to set up independently
- You can still create an account on the day but doing this beforehand will save time and avoid delays to the start of the class.
- If you already have an Adobe ID/ subscription you can use this on your short course rather than setting up a new account.
To create an account students will need to:
- Go to Adobe Sign in page.
- Select ‘Create an account’
- Enter your details and select ‘Create account’
