Adobe Audition seems like a fairly simple piece of software to use to edit audio.
The basic steps to edit audio are:
- to remove background noise, highlight it. Then click effects, noise reduction, and then capture noise print. Or you could press the shift key and ‘P’.
- to remove parts you don’t want, highlight it and then press the backspace
- for any Fostex recordings, go to edit. Then extract channels to mono files. By doing so, you will end up with a separate left and right channel.
