Product Description

From the Back Cover

This project-based guide from Adobe will teach readers all they need to know to create and edit audio with Soundbooth CS3, Adobe's new audio-editing application targeted at creative professionals in all disciplines (no sound engineering background required!) Soundbooth CS3 will appeal to users who want to use audio in their everyday tasks: recording and editing, removing unwanted noise, customizing sound effects, adding aural emphasis to a scene, or creating royalty-free music to match the mood of a production. Soundbooth's tight integration with Flash and Premiere Pro lets users create flawless voiceovers, remove pops and scratches from recordings, and create customized music for any video or Flash production. Using step-by-step instructions with projects that build on the knowledge learned in each lesson, readers will learn techniques for recording new dialog tracks and sound effects while learning how to modify existing audio files with tools that cut, copy, paste, fade, stretch, and add effects. Readers will also learn how to take advantage of AutoComposer, a feature that speeds the process of creating customized music to accompany their projects.

Adobe has produced a brilliant Book, if you realy want to learn how to use "Soundbooth" for serious audio-work.
The vidio-lessons that comes with the Book, are easy to understand and is also a fast way to obtain knowledge, between two and three hours reading comes in 30 min.'s videos.

This book is very good for beginners as well as amateurs or anyone new to sound editing. It walks you through how to use the program. It also shows you step by step how to clean up your audio by removing cracks and pops and has some examples of how to use sound effects which, by the way, has numerous sound effects as well. It has what is called a sound effect rack that you can add up to 5 effects at any one time. This program reminds me of my music days when I played in a band and we had all these sound effects pedals and component racks. This software has all that and more built right into to the software. This is a toned down version of Adobe Audition, but it still has everything the demanding videographer will need. This software comes with built in soundtracks that you could edit your video, in real time, to any size of video length. One of the best features allows you to use markers on the waveforms as the video and audio is playing allowing greater effeciency when adding titles.

A definite must have for the demanding videographer!!!!

I would not recommend this for new users. 4 Oct 2009

I am new to Adobe Soundbooth. This book seems to be missing information. For example, the introduction is an overview of features. They start you off by having you access the different sections, but then do not give you complete paths to access all areas within the section to which they directed you and are discussing. I was often left hanging or had to explore my way around the application.

The lessons do not explain why you are accessing a specific setting or elaborate on why specific settings were chosen. It would have been helpful to me, to have the discussion provide information on why certain settings were suggested, which setting may optimize section-specific information or apply it differently.

I am going to look for a resource now with a little more practical detail. This seems like it was rushed. Learning by exploration is also learning, but this book is a little too anemic.
Great, works for CS 4 also 19 Oct 2010

I got this to get up to speed on Soundbooth, there was no CS4 book, so I got this in hopes it may help, actually it was 100% right on, there were few if any changes from CS3 to CS4. This book is a quick but effective introduction to Soundbooth. I found all I needed in it and quickly. I would highly suggest this book, Soundbooth comes as part of the Adobe Web Premium package and I had no idea what it was or how it worked, I needed to edit sound for a Flash/actionscript project and this book got me there in like 3hours of reading.

Great book. I am using it in 2014 even though CS3 is long gone. If you know little about sound cleaning, then this book is great for learning. The instructions are easy unlike some of the other classroom in a book series.

I bought this book in hopes of learning the ins and outs of Adobe Soundbooth. I use Adobe Photoshop and After Effect. To be honest with you...I gave up. This book assumed too much knowledge for a beginner. I bet it is great for someone that already knows the basics.
