New with Premiere, trying CS5: It seems like adjusting audio with Soundbooth from Premiere can only be done once: It takes you to rendering and replacing, then to Soundbooth, and back to Premiere, but after that you can’t get the audio back into Soundbooth to make further fine tunings. Any suggestions?

It seems that way, but Premiere makes a file of the extracted audio which is located in the project files on your hard drive. Open that file in Soundbooth and you can edit again.

You nailed it Ann. Thanks!!

Also a follow-up: From Premiere, how do you edit in SB, with the video showing. I can get the video, when I use SB as a standalone, but not when I go from Premiere.

Yup, it seems silly, but there is no workflow that does this right now with SB and PPro and SB. At least none that I am aware of.
Essentially, you can export a file from PPro and import it into SB, an then work with the video…but it’s not really a solution for scoring or Sound FX work.
I’d treat it more like this….
PPro offers a very compelling audio suite of tools: great fx that work at the clip and track level, and even sub-frame audio trimming.
That means you can get most of the heavy lifting for arrangement and mastering FX done there.
You can then push individual clips that need repair into SB using the workflow discussed.
Also you can export your sequence as a (QT or AVI)file and bring that manually into SB for scoring and FX spotting.
In this workflow, when in SB save your score and or FX tracks as ASOUND (adobe’s new file format CS4 and later) and bring that file back to PPro and drop that on to your master timeline.
ASOUND is a Container file that will bring back your full SBooth Project back up when you “edit original” from PPro.
What I’m hoping…and this is purely speculation, is that eventually PPro will let you generate an ASOUND document from your PPro timeline…bring in all your tracks (audio and ref video) and fx from PPRO into soundbooth. Bur for the most part PPro audio is so advanced,most of what you need to do can be accomplished there.
does that help?

Thanks Alex: A “workable” workaround, mainly showing that the Premiere Pro Soundbooth “connection” is destined for many updates in the who knows how long future. I’ll reconsider PrPro for my editing. And I’ve always liked Audacity, and that may beat out Soundbooth for plain sound editing–to be determined.
