I used to record music utilizing Adobe Audition. Although the program was rather limited in its earlier versions, it had one knockout feature that I absolutely loved! I had the ability to edit my sound file manually. If I played too loudly in one part, I could manually adjust the volume, or lower it if required, I could select places to silence the audio file, such as while taking a breath etc.
I'm currently using Logic Pro X and I have not found a way to be able to do this yet. I also have Pro Tools 11, but have not yet learned how to use it.
Does anyone know if there is a way to alter the volume levels of particular parts of a sound file within either Logic Pro X or Pro Tools 11? Is there a plug in that I can purchase that does this?
I have a bass track that I recorded, that was a very good performance, but I was playing a bit too dynamically, and my bass amp is not very good, so I don't foresee myself producing a bass track with much better quality. If I could go in and manually edit the volume on certain parts, I think it would sound phenomenal.
Let me know if there are any plug-ins or built in features in Logic Pro X or Pro Tools 11 where I can do this. My other option is to export the bass file and import it into my Windows pc and mix it down in Adobe Audition, but I would like to avoid that if possible.
In Adobe Audition, I was able to double click on a soundfile and highlight sections of the soundwave and manually increase or decrease virtually any section of the file. It was very easy to identify the peaks and shrink them by a few db by simply highlighting the peak right clicking, and selection volume cut, and manually inputting the amount to cut by. Is there any similar plug in or feature in another program?
