serious flaws for recording. I'm using Windows 7 and the program has not worked right since it was installed. Most significantly when recording, it is prone to random drop outs throughout the recording. I installed it on a brand new Dell latitude - spent hours tweaking it based on online "suggestions" - even shipped it back to Dell to see if it was machine error.
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.
No large time clock that I could find anyway in version 3 and I feel that it is very over priced.
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.
i love to work with it and was never dissappointed blessed are the manufacturers of this product wich brings the best out of my God given gift music
THE BEST OF THE BEST
THIS IS NOT FOR KIDS OR CHANCE TAKERS IT IS FOR SERIOUS MUSICIANS AND THOSE WHO ARE WILLING TO LEARN AND GAIN MORE DEPTH IN MUSIC PRODUCTION I LOVE IT AND I THOUGHT MYSELF AND IT S HELP SECTION IS TEACHING ME A LOT
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?
Outrageous that they left out these 2 necessary features.
? 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?
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.
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 ..
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.
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.
I have the same problem - Brand new Sony Vaio with i3 Intel, Win 7 Professional. Loaded my original A.A. 1.5, would'nt let me 'extract CD audio'. I downloaded the free trial version of CS5.5, same problem. When I try to extract, the entire screen ghosts-out, and the error message 'program has stopped working' or somesuch. It acts like it doesn't 'see' the CD drive, but the drive functions with other programs. I still have a desktop with XP, thank goodness, but it sucks that M.S. has "over-thought" Win 7, fixed things that weren't broken, and added sillly clutter like "libraries.
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.
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.
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.
I agree with you as I have the same problem with payment for this software so i tired another free software which does the same functions named ( Audio Converter Extractor Max) found on http://www.audiotools.ws
