Has anyone tried this out? Iv been reading about it and it sounds quite good. I does it compare to the older products like CoolEdit?

Adobe Audition IS CoolEdit...Adobe bought Syntrillium, the makers of CoolEdit, they took CoolEdit and built Audition out of it.

From what I recall Adobe has added quite a lot and the most recent update I have heard good things about...I am not a user myself, so I can't give you specifics...and I don't look at Adobe as being a company that makes very intuitive interfaces based on Photoshop and Premiere but you never know.

i've got a friend who uses it for video type stuff, it's really good for that, also the audio restoration capabilities are super, but i don't think it'd be my go-to app for multitrack seems to me, more like a good audio editor.

actually it's quite good for multitracking. I use it often, eventhough I have a new copy of Sonar 5 studio edition. I like having the multitracks and editing all in the same program. When I use Sonar, I flop back and forth with Sound Forge to do single track editing. With Audition, you get it all in one package. Some of the plug in's aren't as good as those in Sonar but the transposition and pitch correction are better in Audition. But then.....I've never found just that one piece of software that really does all that I want, so I have been back and forth from Audition to Sonar for a long time now. JD

Audition 2.0 is great. I have used Cubase and Cakewalk and didn't like either. Audition 2.0 is MUCH different than CoolEdit. It has a all new interface and is SO easy to use, plus it has tons of plug-ins that sound and work GREAT.

I use it to track, mix and create my CD.

Except for it's lack of Midi support I'd say with V2 Audition is one of the best DAW apps out there. Audition has always had a more intutitive and easier to use GUI IMO than any of the others I've tried. Sonar still has a few more features along with midi support but the UI of Sonar is IMO very clunky and a pain to work with in comparison. Cubase I don't have any experience with so I can't comment there. And as CC said AA is packed with very good plugin's for the most part and audio restoration/cleanup tools that are excellent. I'd also agree with CC that it is excellent for multi-tracking as well.

Be aware though Audition 2 does have some performance problems for some people (including me) mostly with the ASIO implementation, while others have had no problems , but AA 2 is a ground up new program basically so there's bound to be some gotcha's that should be worked out soon.

jdwoodward, you do know you can do single track editing right in Sonar? I do it all the time. The only time I leave Sonar now is when I need a proprietary effect only usable in SF or Wavelab. You simply double click the wave you want to edit and you will open the edit window.

i have 1.5 and 2.0... still using 1.5 quite a lot as the new interface takes a little getting used to, but it is much more like protools now and it works with my digi002
