Default Adobe Audition

I never seem to see much mention of Audition on pro audio sites (bar one or two little mentions here and there), however the hip hop forum I run with loads of budding rappers and producers is FULL of users of Audition.

Why is this? I personally 'grew up' using Audition and still use it occasionally because it has some good features like the mastering and editing tools are pretty decent.

I use Cubase mainly now though because Auditions midi and rewiring is pretty poor, but I still like the program, I just rarely see it mentioned in pro audio fields.

I always thought audition was more a post app? on the same lines as soundforge, wavelab and Peak pro etc

It could be used by Hip Hop Producers because of the wide range of Audio editing features it offers. It might also be more of a workflow thing. They may have a host that might offer more creative arranging and composing tools...ACID Pro, Live e.t.c but not as deep audio editing tools.

There might also just happen to be a high concentration of AA users on that particular forum OJB (just a guess). Perhaps a user some time ago recommended it to friends and over time quite a few bought it on that forum.

It's a classy product no question. Some of the stuff on offer is stunning. It has an audio restoration and healing function (AA3) and if it works anything like the one in Photoshop then it must be fantastic. Some of the graphical spectral editing screen grabs on their site look incredible.

I think AA is used quite a bit in broadcast cricles as well, something along the lines of surenos post.

I thought I read about AA's usage in those kind of circles. Nice bit of business if you can find it.

Your friend has a great role there. Stand out company name on any CV. AA is a lovely app to use. Very easy from my time with it. I think the MIDI aspects could be improved but it has a very nice look to it and IMO is very well laid out overall.

Yea I agree with most of what has been said. The thing about AA as well is it is so easy to pick up and very intuitive (in my opinion of course). It was my first dabble into DAS territory (back in Cool Edit days anyway) and I still use it today.


I tried to get sound engineering work at the BBC but it would have had to have been voluntary first on an internship but I needed a paid job. So I got into web dev work instead.

Ihaven't used it since it was cool edit.

I hated it, to be blunt. Just did nothing for me. Cue Cubase and then Logic !
