Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Audition

I use Adobe Audition (not to it's full advantage) but to "finalize" a song after its been produced. I like being able to see the entire waveform of a song to see peaks and any dead spaces. I also use it alot to truncate songs and sometimes even add my fades. I have used it in the past for more in depth things, but here lately, I've mostly been using it for truncation and fades. It also helps a lot that I can save the song into different formats such as mp3, mp3 pro, WAV, etc...

Also, the program is not very processor intensive and can incorporate vst effects, which can be very helpful at times.
  • Truncate
  • Fade
  • Insert Silence
  • Save in different formats
  • It crashes sometimes
  • Occasionally it cannot find my audio interface
  • Most recent version cannot find my plugins
  • Editing
  • Audio Manipulation
  • File management
  • I can save the file in whatever format the client wants it in to send it
  • I can add a fade
  • It's my "final" process after mastering
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.

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


Are you happy with Adobe Audition's feature set?


Did Adobe Audition live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Adobe Audition go as expected?


Would you buy Adobe Audition again?


So, starting off, Cool Edit Pro is NOT a replacement for Adobe Audition. I used to use Cool Edit Pro and there is a world of difference in quality and ability. I use Adobe Audition for post-production editing. it it very well suited for that application. Truncate, fade, add a second or 2 of silence at the end or beginning, save as MP3 or almost any other format a client would want to receive the file in.
