"It's an exciting day for the audio team--we just posted a
beta of a brand new application, Adobe Soundbooth, to Adobe Labs
for everyone to check out! Soundbooth is built for creative pros
and developers who don't have a background in audio but need to get
audio tasks done quickly anyway. When we went out and visited
customers who are doing video and web (especially Flash) work we
found that most of you needed to do your own audio work regularly,
but were using a hodgepodge of tools to get the job done--and none
of those tools felt comfortable.
Soundbooth is our answer for that. Pros that are familiar
with other Adobe applications can get going quickly using new
on-clip elements for editing as well as a task-based approach to
organizing the tools for things like noise reduction and creating
music. We've tried to make it as fast as possible to get in, get
your work done, and get out while making sure the tools are
powerful, intuitive and discoverable."

They'll be reading the beta forum for comments rather than
any discussion here, I suspect, but I thought people here might
like a 'heads-up' about this.
