How to Convert a Multritrack Session to Wav. or MP3 in Adobe Audition
Alright, so you’ve just spent hours editing music in Adobe Audition, creating that absolutely perfect sound, only to realize you have no way to share it with your friends or the online community. Well my friends, you’re in luck! I am not only going to show you how to convert your multitrack session so that you may share it with friends, but I will do so in a way that guarantees your music will be compatible with all internet browsers.
First things first, you need to know that different formats exist for music, and that these different formats are compatible with different browsers. So using this helpful little table from http://www.w3schools.com, let’s see what we’re dealing with.
As you can see, no format is compatible with all four of the major internet browsers. That being said, you’ll want to convert your file into two different formats, maybe MP3 and Wav, to guarantee that it will open regardless of which browser your audience is using.
Now that you have a basic understanding, time to convert that file! In Adobe Audition, click:
File–>Export–>Multitrack Mixdown–>Entire Session
Doing so will bring up the following dialogue box.
Click on Format to bring up the different formats, and choose the one that best fits your purpose. Remember, if you are uploading to the internet, be sure to save your Multitrack Session in at least two different formats, and upload both to your website, so that all of your viewers will be able to listen to your work.
Save the file to somewhere you will easily find it and click OK to complete the conversion. Viola! That was easy!
