I've obviously waited too long for Adobe to fix all the things in CS5.5 that weren't brought over from Audition 3, and to put them into CS6.
Sadly now I can't carry on with my chosen upgrade path without the ruinously expensive CC version, the cost of which is prohibitive now that I'm retired!
Sad to say, this decision by Adobe means that I am having to give up use of Audition and move to a competitor's product! It also means that my recommendation to other radio broadcast users here in the UK is to no longer follow this program unless they have the Beeb's financial backing in acquiring it.
A real shame! It was always my 'go-to' tool of choice for anything audio. Still, it's their loss ....!
It's still possible to purchase Audition CS6, but I don't think that there's an upgrade path any more. Doesn't mean absolutely that there isn't though - you'd have to call to find out. I can give you a link to the purchase page though - Adobe hides it rather well...
(This has been asked about quite a lot, so I've just created an FAQ about it.)
Really must thank you! In fact I don't think I can thank you enough!! [Also, a thank you to SteveG(AudioMasters) for providing the link.]
Just a pity that the chap from Adobe that I got on the phone yesterday couldn't have offered me this option instead of the expensive Cloudy option.
It certainly allowed me to purchase 'the upgrade' - as a Download - albeit using the 23% VAT that Eire 'impose'.
But what a relief!!
Now I can get back to my dearly beloved ... !!
