With Adobe Audition, users can use as many stereo tracks when editing. This is only limited by the CPU’s power. Several audio affects are available, too. Some of these are Generate Tones, Doppler Shifter, Graphic Phase Shifter, and Notch Filter.

Adobe Audition also comes with powerful diagnostics tools that analyses (Frequency Analysis) and provides statistics (Amplitude Statistics) on the areas of the audio file that need fixing. The software supports a wide range of audio and video formats including FLAC, OGG, WMA, RAW, HE-AAC, and many more.
