Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Audition

Adobe Audition is being used alongside our in-house media production. We have several instances where we've created a video using interviews and on-site footage. We, on several occasions, make sure that our audio quality is just as good, if not better, then the video captures. Video without proper audio is unusable.
  • Audio equalization.
  • Fine-tuning audio peaks and extracting unwanted frequencies.
  • Bringing audio to production-level quality.
  • Easier usability and integration with other Adobe products (Adobe Premiere).
  • A greater end product produced with an in-house budget.
  • Faster turn-around on projects.
  • Makes for a more resourceful and productive Marketing team.
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.
We've never had any issues, so there's no need to involve support.

Would you buy Adobe Audition again?

Yes

We use it for fine-tuning audio in most regards--especially if the audio quality is poor. I wouldn't necessarily take audio outside of Adobe Premiere or other video editing software unless it needs serious treatment in quality. But when it is needed it most definitely delivers. One example we have was an interview that had a constant humming sound (possibly electronic interference). In order to remove this very distracting sound, we isolated the frequency in Adobe Audition and removed it entirely. There aren't many programs that can do that.
