    "Perfect For Someone Just Starting Out Not For Pros"

    July 10, 2012   |   By Music-Producer2010

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    I have the older version 3 that I've seen others mention on here and it seem to be okay. The biggest plus seem to be the sound quality of Adobe Audition which is really outstanding for a program of it's category. It's pretty good for last minute Mastering and all but however I wouldn't use it to do anything major much.

    Cons

    No large time clock that I could find anyway in version 3 and I feel that it is very over priced.

    Summary

    Good for someone just starting out but as far as I'm concern nothing major for someone that been into Music Production for awhile. The Rewire is always a plus and maybe I'm missing something but I was expecting a lot more from Adobe Audition at a price like this. Again if you are just starting out or just want something smaller and don't mind paying top dollar, This is pretty good for you but not for the upscale Producers, However I'll keep it for small jobs but I however prefer WaveLab 6, Nuendo or even Sound Forge as someone else mention earlier.

    "Missing 2 essential features"

    November 11, 2011   |   By JonCFox

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Fast, nice interface, runs on my Win7

    Cons

    Can't read a very common audio format: wma.
    Can't burn CDs.
    Wow - this is nearly unbelievable! Previous versions could do these two functions. It can't be hard to incorporate these functions into the program, can it?

    No, I'm not making this up - Adobe even discusses that they've left these out on their official website.

    Is there a free plug-in somewhere to do these?

    Summary

    Outrageous that they left out these 2 necessary features.

    "Audition 3 is better for working with waveforms"

    May 05, 2011   |   By f5gj2

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    ? Waveform display is a little prettier

    Cons

    ? If you change window size, all the boxes lose their positions
    ? Navigating through waveform is frustrating
    ? Lots of wasted screen space
    ? Can't zoom to tops of waveforms
    ? Frequency analysis not available for live monitoring?

    Summary

    If you use Audition for mixing music, it might be fine. I don't use it for that. If you use it for waveform analysis and editing (as its ancestor Cool Edit was designed to do) you will be disappointed. Audition 3 was better for this, and I will continue using it.

    "Absolutely excellent - unless you have Windows 7"

    March 12, 2011   |   By chisongs

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Quite simply the most user-friendly radio production and music software production tool you could hope for. Used with Windows XP, it is a dream ... but ..

    Cons

    Has significant incompatibility issues with Windows 7. Also, the activation transfer programme between computers is a pain and could be much easier than it currently is.

    Summary

    I have successfully used Audition 3.0 for a couple of years on a home desktop PC using Windows XP. It has been a wonderful experience; as a professional radio and music producer, this allowed me to create new music ideas or extract exist tracks from CDs to create soundscapes - from promos/trails to commercials and full programmes.

    My major problems only came to light when I moved to another part of the country and needed to run it on a new laptop (using Windows 7; certain important feature stopped working. This new operating system has disabled the 'extract from audio cd' function, which means you cannot rip music from CDs. In order to do this, you have to use other software, save to hard drive and then you can open with Audition - which effectively renders it pointless. Secondly, as Windows 7 has removed the Windows recording mixer, you are no longer able to connect instruments directly to the laptop - essential for putting music ideas onto the hard drive. Suddenly this product is totally worthless to me.

    I should point out that having spoken to Adobe (and allowed them remote access to my laptop), this is clearly not an issue created by their product - and they acknowledged it is an issue with Windows 7 for which there is currently no fix. The suggestion being, that these functions have been disabled by Microsoft's operating system in an effort to combat piracy.

    Fair enough, but having bought Audition for a specific function, this is not helpful .. and leaves me having to either load XP onto the new laptop, or accepting that I will have to buy a Mac and move to Logic 7 or Protools. Bizarrely, other software like Sony Sound Forge rips without problems. Yes, I can use this and then edit with Audition, but it really isn't the point, is it?

    I am extremely sad about it this as I otherwise love the software, but felt it right to share the information so you don't get caught as I have done and you can make an informed judgment before purchasing. After all, it isn't cheap.

    Finally, a comment on the activation transfer system. As I discovered, the switching between computers on the one-PC licence is a bit of a pain. If you don't deactivate the software before attempting to activate the software on your second computer, you cannot simply switch online. It has to be deactivated first. If this seems irrrelevant, here's what happened to me.

    I installed the new software onto my new PC, but forgot to deactivate on my home desktop. When I arrived (300 miles away) in my remote location, I found that I couldn't switch between the two unless I had deactivate on the other machine first. I was then unable to use the product until I got home 3 weeks later as I could not simply deactivate the other machine online.

    Surely, in this day and age, Adobe can develop a system where you can open the installed second version of the software and then connect to the website to switch for use on the second computer? There will be many like me who simply forget to deactivate and need to be able to do that from a remote location!

    In any event, three weeks later after finally activating it, imagine the joy of discovering it was incompatible with Windows 7! Deep joy.

    Thought you should know.

    "The professional audio producer's dream"

    April 08, 2010   |   By Mark_Lawrence

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Beautiful, user-friendly interface. A comprehensive suite of tools for professional audio production. Dual monitor capability. Multi-band compressor. Impressive audio restoration with adaptive noise reduction. CD ripper / burner. mp3PRO codec.

    Cons

    No PPM meters. No 64 bit support. Too complicated and expensive for amateur use. Adobe Soundbooth or Audacity may be better alternatives for basic audio work.

    Summary

    I have used Audition ( and Cool Edit ) since 1999 for professional radio and video production. Until recently Pro Tools, SADiE, and Nuendo seemed always to have the edge over Audition but Since Audtion 3 the situation has changed dramatically. ( Audition 2 was a good challenge to the competition also ) I would recommend anyone who has tried older versions of Audition or Cool Edit to try V3. I don't think you can get better value for money. VUplayer.com offer a range of free additional filters.

    "Incredible DAW - a true contender for audio editing."

    December 27, 2009   |   By elysianforest

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Incredibly intuitive - easy to learn and use. Work flow is very fast, it all "just makes sense." Some of the included plug-ins sound AMAZING. No other DAW includes spectral imaging and processing, a truly amazing feature all by itself.

    Cons

    Some of the included plug-ins sound less than amazing, though all are quite usable and comparable to any other "in-the-box" processors. NOT a good choice for composition- the MIDI sequencer is as basic as it gets and not fun to use.

    Summary

    For those of us who don't have an extra $25,000 to get together a "proper" Pro Tools HD system with C24 controller and Waves plug-ins, Audition 3.0 truly is one of the best choices one can make.

    Unless you've been using it since Sound Designer II, Pro Tools is NOT intuitive at all. It simply takes longer to get things done, there are typically 3-5 different clicks or keyboard shortcuts to do any ONE thing (some see this as a strength, most see it as confusing), and any version of Pro Tools does NOT come with the necessary tools to truly finish an album. While all the plug-ins for Pro Tools are very usable, especially those fun Bomb Factory ones, you must buy additional plug-ins to have what it takes to complete an average project. Also, even if you do spend that $10,000 on your shiny HD system, you can expect zero support from Digidesign in 5 years when it becomes outdated.

    In comparison, Audition 3.0 comes with powerful processing tools that, while not the prettiest to look at in general, just sound great and do get the job done. It also includes a guitar processor, a mastering suite, CD authoring, and that wonderful spectral imaging it's had since Cool Edit Pro (why on earth don't other DAWs do this?). Support is good and upgrades are cheap.

    I make a direct comparison to Pro Tools because both are meant for audio editing and both are notoriously bad for composing with MIDI. Yes, Pro Tools is the most widely used DAW, and it is used in professional recording studios more than any other, but those that put it at the top of any tier are typically just being defensive about investing so much money or uninformed. Audition does anything Pro Tools can do and does it easier. You can put together multi-computer systems (and bring back to life those old PCs of yours) with programs like fx-teleport and get the same kind of performance as TDM. Plus you get access to all those wonderful VST plug-ins that seem to be more available every day. Even some of the free ones are incredible (Kjaerhus and Boosty plug-ins to name a couple). All this performance and versatility for a tiny fraction of the cost make an Audition system a no-brainer.
