Although I don't use it NEARLY to it's full capacity, Audition is the clear winner in post-production editing software. Audacity would likely come the closest, but its free. So remember... you get what you pay for. When I export a final track from Protools, I immediately open it in Audition to make sure it doesn't look "smashed" or that the transients aren't too tall.

Working in remote areas where there is no internet connection makes the new Adobe Audition as useful as boobs on a bull. The same does not go for the Audacity and the rest of their other programs, so the integration of earlier releases was awesome ... this new business model is a stumbling block for me. I'll not be looking for alternative software to see what best fills in the gaps in my workflow.

Adobe Audition is an amazing, well-rounded software. Compared to the much simpler audio editing software Audacity, it is leaps and bounds above. Audacity is a free software that's good for a quick edit here or there. Compared to Audition, though, it's a pretty weak offering. Audition has huge capability when it comes to editing and effects, and Audacity has the bare minimum in these categories. Comparing Audition to Pro Tools is a little different. Pro Tools is the go-to software for music production. Although it can accomplish many of the same things as Audition, its workflow is better suited for music production specifically.

Audacity is a free and open-source alternative to Adobe Audition. We have used both softwares and can tell you that Audacity has some good features but not even close to Adobe Audition. However, Audacity is completely free and Adobe Audition is really expensive, which kind of balances the pros and cons of both software. We selected Adobe Audition because it is highly intuitive and contains much more features than Audacity.

Audition's interface is much better than other, free/shareware programs. The ease of use with interfaces and USB mics makes production a breeze. I began using Audition simply because it's included in the Creative Cloud suite, but have continued because of its reliability ad ease of use. The powerful tools like using a "noise print" for noise reduction is another reason I keep using it.

Audition works great for recording and doing moderate audio production work as for a podcast or an advertisement. I use it whenever I need to set up a quick recording session and throw a few basic effects, or do some rudimentary audio editing and splicing for a small task like a voice over for a software demo. Sound Forge, WaveLab, and Audacity all have their own strengths. Sound Forge is great for its batch processor with automated file conversion and export. WaveLab is great for its realtime effects chains. And, Audacity is great for its accessibility, and the fact that it is free and open source. Each has its place, and I prefer Adobe Audition for smaller tasks and ad-hoc recording sessions.

Audacity is free, but with fewer features. So it depends what you're trying to do. If you want simple audio editing, don't need to do a lot, and are freelancing, then Audacity is probably better suited for you. If you're a business and need to do a lot of audio editing, then Adobe Audition is probably better suited for you.

There are many different options available for audio editing tools in a variety of costs, from free (Audacity and GarageBand) to paid (Logic Pro X). Adobe Audition offers significantly more tools and effects processing than the free options and a better, cross platform, experience than Logic Pro.

Audacity is a simple editor that most people will only ever need, especially if you are on a budget. But for more advanced control of your audio, Adobe Audition is a better choice. The reason I have said that I've used Adobe Audition for over 20 years (it hasn't been out that long under its current name) is because I used its predecessor, Cool Edit Pro. I used the program in my job for years and was happy that when Adobe purchased it, they didn't ruin it, but improved it.

Adobe Audition was designed as a professional tool and has maintained that caliber of professionalism ever since. Other audio tools try to emulate Audition but never reach the standard set by Adobe. While all the audio tools on the market can be regarded as a competition, we believe none of them can stand up against Adobe Audition. It outranks them in speed, functionality, ease of use, and professionalism.

It has been a few years since I used it, but Audacity is limited in scope compared to Audition, and doesn't integrate seamlessly with Premier. Audition's filtering tools are superior, and allow for cleaner audio with less hands on work. Audition is also platform independent, and works the same whether you are on PC or Mac, whereas Audacity works on both platforms, it is very much like having two different programs, both in UI and in capability.

Adobe Audition is the middle ground between Audacity and Pro Tools. It has many more features then Audacity, but Audacity is free, so that's to be expected. And it's not quite as robust as Pro Tools, but also doesn't have the costs involved, especially since it's already included in an Adobe CC subscription.

Audacity is a great tool for beginners. It's free and provides a lot of user-created options and templates to choose from that help produce consistently quality audio. Adobe Audition is for those who are looking for more control in how they can produce audio. Adobe Audition provides users a seemingly endless array of tools, effects, enhancements, and more that can be applied to audio of many different formats. It's an incredible software platform that allows anyone with the knowledge and experience to produce quality audio from a less than ideal source file.

Again, while I use FCPX for all my video editing (and much of my audio editing), Audition provides a much richer feature set. I know that I've only dipped my big toe into the Audition waters and could learn a lot more if I spent the time in it but my work doesn't currently allow for or necessitate further exploration.

When putting features side by side and cost, Adobe Audition is by far one of the most complete solutions in the market for audio authoring - at least in the consumer market, not referring to full studio professional solutions.

Adobe Audition definitely holds its own against Logic Pro. They are fairly similar in usability, support, tools, etc. My choice on either would largely depend on the video editing software I'm using. If I were using Final Cut Pro X I would most likely utilize Logic Pro. It's the same with Adobe Premiere and Adobe Audition.

Adobe Audition is jam-packed with features that allow you to do almost anything with audio files. The interface is a little daunting but it is very easy to learn. The software compared to Audacity is very far along as far as technology for sound editing goes.

Audition is definitely the way to go for your audio needs versus Adobe Premiere Pro. But, you can actually open the audio you're working on in Premiere Pro in Adobe Audition and edit it directly without needing to save the audio separately and importing it. You can make live changes in Audition and it updates in Premiere.

I mentioned earlier that I used software from Sony before moving to Audition. I really liked the Sony solution, but when I moved to Audition I found a lot more power and surprisingly, an easier-to-use solution. Working with the timeline in Audition is more intuitive for me. Audition has more effects than the Sony product had and the interface is better organized. Plus, Audition's workspace can be customized in ways I never figured out how to do in the Sony product.

Adobe Audition is not as intuitive as ProTools, but the fact that it is part of the Adobe Creative Suite makes it far more cost efficient for smaller to medium businesses. It is far superior than Audacity and GarageBand with far more capabilities. We've selected Adobe Audition as our primary audio editing software because of it's capabilities with Premiere Pro and the fact that we generally use it for audio recording and minor edits- nothing that would need 30+ audio tracks and multiple custom plug ins, which I would prefer to use ProTools on.
