Pros and Cons

  • Audition is intuitive - you can cut and arrange clips using a clear interface.
  • Audition has ready-made templates based on your needs: podcast, song, etc.
  • The compression is a little off sometimes. The trick is to adjust the leveling amount in a track, but that's not readily apparent.
  • I'd love the ability to crowd-share, so other team members can work on the same project at the same time across machines.

Pros and Cons

  • Audition has an excellent noise reduction plugin. If you work in VO or corporate video, you'll do lots of noise reduction. The versatility of how you can remove noise is wide, and the plugin itself is powerful.
  • Audition offers a number of ways to edit sections of audio within a wavelength. If a plugin isn't doing the job, there are many ways to work in the software to eliminate pops and other unwanted artifacts in your audio file.
  • Audition has a lot of features, but to me, it feels like Adobe neglects it more often than not. Where I see lots of new, and sometimes incredible, additions to other Adobe products, Audition feels a bit dated in many ways.
  • Audition doesn't scrub the timeline well. It does a decent job, but quick editing and scrubbing needs good hotkeys and good navigation precision to be on top of things.

Pros and Cons

  • Recording on-site: Audition does not use a lot of computer resources so you can run it on a laptop and be up and running recording in minutes.
  • On-the-fly audio bus setup.
  • Integration with Adobe Premiere.
  • Numerous features for podcasts and radio such as auto-ducking music when voice tracks are active.
  • Audio editing: I still prefer competitors like Magix Sound Forge Pro and Steinberg WaveLab Pro when it comes to extensive audio editing, simply because of their superior keyboard navigation and shortcuts, in my opinion.
  • Multitrack recording: While this is not Audition's primary purpose, and it does feature multitrack support, it is not my preferred audio editor for multitrack editing. I prefer a more full-featured Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) for those purposes.
  • Some UI choices fit more with the Adobe ecosystem of Photoshop, Premiere, etc. and are unusual for a more audio-focused ecosystem. Audition feels like it belongs to a different "world" of software than many of my other audio applications, which all seem to coexist within the same conceptual world. This is not a problem if you are familiar with Adobe apps, and may even be a feature, as it reduces the learning curve for people who are already familiar with the internal logic of Adobe user interface design.

Pros and Cons

  • Audio manipulation
  • Visual of audio waves to really hone in on what you're editing
  • Complex program with near-infinite capabilities
  • Maybe a more user-friendly interface--it's intimidating at first.

Pros and Cons

  • Just as easy to use as free tools.
  • Full integration with all the other programs in the Adobe suite.
  • To use Audacity on its own is costly, but if you use other programs in the Adobe Suite, it is a great value.
  • It is a hefty user of computer resources. This has become less so over the years, but it still takes a beefy computer to get the best from it.

Pros and Cons

  • Audio cleanup.
  • Audio EQ.
  • Probably just me (as more of a beginner) but I haven't found an easy way to adjust an effect after it's been applied to a project.
  • GUI, as with all adobe products, is a bit user UNfriendly. Takes getting used to.

Pros and Cons

  • Has dozens of shortcuts available right out of the box so the most common tools are already available.
  • Has both a waveform editor and a multitrack editor, making it easy to edit either an individual channel or the entire clip at once, depending on your needs.
  • While it has an amazing range of tools and effects, they are well organized in the menus so they are at once easy to find and not overwhelming.
  • You can edit right on the timeline, zooming in and out to make finding clips easy. You can also place markers for important sections.
  • Audio clips can be matched to video inside Audition or you can work with audio already attached to a video. Audition makes matching audio to video extremely easy, showing the corresponding video in a panel as you adjust audio on the timeline.
  • Audition is serious app that will require time to master. While Adobe has done an excellent job of making it approachable, there is a considerable learning curve to unlocking its best features. Knowing that, going in should ease user frustration.
  • There hasn't been anything I've wanted to accomplish with my audio files that Audition has not permitted.

Pros and Cons

  • Multitrack: this is a huge feature for producing content for radio or anything else with multiple audio layers.
  • Handles multiple formats: Audition can import and export multiple formats, making very versatile for any audio scenario.
  • Audio editing: Audition has some great presets for EQ, reverb, and other important audio editing features that make applying effects quick and easy.
  • More presets: Audition has a pretty solid library of sound effect presets, but could stand to add more to increase the ability and efficiency of the software.
  • Help guide: it would be great, especially for newer users, if Audition implemented a help guide that could walk you through how to accomplish certain tasks.
  • User interface: Audition could benefit from having more customization options to adapt to specific user preferences.
