This tutorial will show you how to create a folder to keep your music, sound effects, and project file in. 

When you import audio files into an Adobe Audition project, the files are referenced by the software, not embedded into the project.

When you start your project, you will want to create an Asset Folder to hold all of your music, sound effects, and your project file.


  1. In the new project window, click the Browse button to the right of the Folder Location selection.
