Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Audition

We are solely using Adobe Audition for audio-cleanup for our video production. We import the audio from recorded video and clean it up to make it pitch-perfect, remove noise, etc. It gives our video that professional quality audio that we desire, which we find to be very important for video retention.
  • 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.
  • We don't really measure. But we pay for the Creative Cloud license for multiple users to allow them to be creative and do cool things. If anything, we've gotten a positive ROI because our video production attracts new talent and new talent means more billing opportunities.
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.
I've never used Adobe support for this product. But I can speak to Adobe support being pretty good overall. It would be nice if they were a bit more lenient when it came to paying for multiple Creative Cloud licenses (discounts) but that's not a fair argument I don't think.

Do you think Adobe Audition delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Adobe Audition's feature set?

Yes

Did Adobe Audition live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Adobe Audition go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Adobe Audition again?

Yes

I give Adobe Audition an "8" because there are free tools out there (like Audacity) that do the job as well. As most know, Adobe Audition is part of Adobe's Creative Cloud license which means there are significant monetary barriers. This product is well suited for an audio and video professional looking to get the best out of their audio output.
