How to use Pop Up Archive’s plugin for Adobe Audition

 Working with raw tape often means toggling from window to window in order to align transcripts with audio editing software. With Pop Up Archive’s extension for Adobe Audition, you can simplify this process by bringing audio and transcript editing into one workspace.

We’ll walk you through the steps of setting up and using the extension in Adobe Audition.

 Download the Pop Up Archive add-on and open it in your editor

Once you’ve downloaded the Pop Up Archive add-on from the add-on store, you can open up the Pop Up Archive panel from the “Windows” drop-down menu under “Extensions.

You can snap the Pop Up Archive window into place by clicking the upper left corner and dragging the “Editor” panel in the dock.

Sync a Pop Up Archive audio item with a file in Audition

Open an audio file in Audition and transcribe by dragging and dropping it into the Pop Up Archive panel.

Once the file has finished transcribing, you can sync the transcript with your audio but selecting the Audition file and then pressing play in Pop Up Archive. Jump to any moment of interest by clicking the Pop Up Archive waveform or transcript — the waveforms sync up!

Note: Audition will sync with whatever file is open in Pop Up Archive, so make sure you have the same file open in both windows.

Search your transcript and mark key moments

Waveform syncing enables you to search for moments of interest in your Pop Up Archive transcript and mark that same moment in Premiere.

Find key moments of interest using the search toolbar. Type in a keyword and press the play button to the left of the line of text. Now toggle over to your Audition editing panel. Create markers by pressing hotkey M to indicate the beginning and end points of your clip. Copy to new and then rename this segment.

Upload more audio

Got more audio? Drag and drop audio into the extension window. Remember to select the new file in the Audition panel and press play in Pop Up Archive to sync the files.
