Hi Adobe guys,
just found this: http://www.adobe.com/de/products/audition.html
The download of the test version (below the Buy button, http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=audition) seems to work. Does that mean that work on Audition is fully finished and officially released?
It's true. Adobe has gone live with all of the CS6 applications, including Audition! Grab the 30-day trial from http://adobe.ly/IrXfBa and dig into it. There has already been a great response over twitter since launch, but I'd love to get feedback from our forum crew as well. Feature Comparison matrix is available at http://www.adobe.com/products/audition/buying-guide-version-comparison .html
I downloaded the big files this morning. No problem, but I had to ship out to work. I'm right now at an Indian Restaurant this evening, but I will try to install it lock, stock and barrel when I get home tonight with a few shots of that great German liqueur Jägermeister to accompany installation madness! hehe
Okay, I've been using Audition CS 6 for 2 full days now and I haven't felt this excited since 1.5 and version 3. With the latest updates it still loads fast, Clip Grouping is back and better then ever. The media browser makes my workflow complete as everything is accessable in the work area. Recording clients that go over by a second or two and using the new stretch feature works quite well. Bringing in settings from CS 5.5 was a help too. FLipping back and forth between wave and multitrack view seems more robust, but that could be I've had too many cups of coffee. Maybe I haven't found it yet but when I create a new session I was hoping when I build commercials and narrations I would be able to create a new audio file record on the fly and then save it in the session I'm using. I still have to head to the folder the session is located in before saving new audio as was the case in CS 5.5. I was hoping it would have the current session folder as the default for saving new audio in a session but I can live with that. Like I said two days in and so far I'm a happy camper.
Thanks! Keep the reviews coming!
When you record a file within multitrack, the generated files are stored in the session folder. Files recorded in the waveform editor, however, default to the last used location when saving. Snce Audition can now open multiple sessions, I suspect it might get a bit hairy if we start trying to assume where you want a file saved rather than putting it specifically where you tell us. I will give it some thought, though, as I may be missing something simple and obvious. It's happened...
To give you a scenario of what I mean. In radio production I'm mixing merrily away when a sales rep comes into the studio with a client revision on the commercial I'm currently working on that has about ten different tail outs and within them tomorrow is the last day, today is the...etc. So as not to mess with the mix - in a session- I flip to the wave editor and do the revision to pop back into the session to continue. Not a big deal, but that scenario is VERY common in radio. Of course I could put a lock on the door and pretend I'm not in. LOL

How is it better than it was in Version 3?

Well firstly, I know there are still some things not implemented in CS 6 that were in Audition 3 but I still have 3 a click away for those rare occassions. To the question of why is it better? I run a pretty fast pc and Audition 3 took ages to load, it would close unexpectidly from time to time for no reason (yes I could bring it all back with the continue feature) and volume and pan nodes now seem very sluggish. With CS 6, thus far, speed and interaction is the big one. It loads about 10x faster than 3 and the layout is more intuitive and nodes, sfx, racks etc are very fast and solid so far. Media browser is another big one, listen on the fly, and pop it into your work area where you want and the clip grouping and stretching are glitch free too . There is nothing wrong with 3 and it'll still be in my toolbox while CS 5.5 will now be filed away. It's the speed and customization of things in CS 6 that makes my production work day so much easier.
I haven't tried external plugins yet and your mileage may vary but for me CS6 is a very solid.
