Cool Edit Pro 2.0 is an audio application from Syntrillium that is the predecessor of Adobe Audition. It allowed users to create, record and edit full songs on their computer. One of the more advanced features is allowing users to mix and master vocals. There is no set way to mix or master vocals, as each project may call for something different, but there are some universal things that can be done to enhance a vocal track in a project.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open the project with the vocal track to be processed. Press "F12" to enter Cool Edit's editing mode. Select the audio track with the mouse and press "R" to bring up the noise reduction tool. Select the reduction to be between 90 and 95 per cent and click "Get Profile From Selection." Press "OK" to finalise the edit. If there are any doubles of the track or part, apply this to them as well.

  2. 2

    Select the vocal tracks and open the noise reduction menu again. Select the "Click/Pop Eliminator" and load the setting "Constant Hiss and Crackle." Click "Auto Find Levels" and press "OK."

  3. 3

    Next to the track name in the edit window, click the effects box. Select "Effects" followed by "Filters," and then "Graphic Equalizer." Some microphones may not be suited for recording vocals. Equalisers help this by enhancing frequencies. Apply equalisation as desired. Back at the effects menu, select "Delay Effects" followed by "Reverb." Apply reverb as desired.
