Your audio workstation, turbo-powered.

Tuned to your specs

Adobe Audition software development kits (SDKs) help you unlock the power of the API to enhance Adobe Audition and connect seamlessly with other tools in your workflow. Support custom file formats, convert to and from native Audition multitrack sessions, and integrate custom control surfaces. Automate complex tasks, connect to web services, and add panels that seamlessly fit into the editing workspace. 

Beyond these SDKs, audio effects can be built using VST or AudioUnits standards.

The guides, documentation, and sample code in the SDKs show you how to use C and C++ to write plug-ins, or HTML5 and JavaScript to create panels. Extensions can be given away or sold in the Adobe Exchange marketplace where users can browse and install extensions. Download the SDKs today and discover the power to tune Adobe Audition to your specs.
