Creating tonal stimuli to match speech stimuli

Notice: We are currently hoping to create a tonal stimuli that will match a /da/
stimulus by its duration and rise and fall times. We have been advised that
we could use PRAAT to do this. We have access both to PRAAT and Adobe

Thank you in advance for your help with this.

Best wishes
