Adobe Audition is the industry’s best digital audio editing software. With this audio editor, you can easily increase music’s overall volume, or select any range of an audio file and adjust the volume of a selected part.

Sometimes you may want to increase the volume of part of an audio, and decrease the volume of the soundtrack at different points.
