Adobe Soundbooth Tools

The Tools panel is located immediately below the menu bar by default. However you can undock it and move it around as you like (drag the handle at the left edge). The panel includes six tools, as well as audio level meters and the workspace menu.

Level Meters

Monitor the overall audio level in dBFS (decibels below full scale). 0dB is the highest level (if the sound goes above this level distortion occurs).

Workspace Menu

This drop-menu allows you to quickly switch between workspaces. Workspaces offer different layouts to suit different types of task and workflow.
