Export a file in Audition

The final result if editing an audio project in Audition will always be a file someone can play! There are a variety of audio file formats, but two very common ones are WAV and MP3



A WAV file is an uncompressed format. It does not decrease in quality but is larger than an MP3


An MP3 file this is a compressed (lossy) format commonly used for online streaming, media players, etc
