I use Audition to edit audio files about 5 or 6 times a month. This week, it suddenly stopped working. I have no idea why.
Today I UNinstalled and then REinstalled the application, but it didn't help.
Any ideas? I'm on a MacBook Pro with OS X 10.8.4.
Help! I've got work to do!
Sorry... I didn't know what all to say... LOL
I've tried opening the program three ways.
First, I tried right-clicking on a file I've already half-edited and selected "open-with"... an MP3 . . . . nothing happens at all. No error message. Nothing.
Then, I tried just opening the program from the Applications window. It appears very briefly in the dock, then disappears. No error message. Nothing happens.
Finally, I tried selecting the Audition icon in the dock. It bounces a few time (like they all usually do), then it stops. No error message. Nothing happens.
Like I mentioned... I also uninstalled the whole program and re-installed it directly from Adobe Creative Cloud this morning. It's still not working and the same things I mentioned above continue to happen.
Sounds like your problem with Audition CC and OS 10.8.4 may be the same problem that I'm experiencing, first reported to Adobe several weeks ago. Adobe has not provided a solution to date. Every morning I check to see if an update for Audition is available. Meanwhile I am using, without a problem, an old CS6 version of Audition 5.0.2X5
Without the crash log, I can't suggest much yet. My hunch is this is related to an issue we are seeing with certain fonts installed on some Mac systems. If you follow Method #2 at http://helpx.adobe.com/audition/kb/audition-cs6-crashes-launch.html and replace where it says "5.0 Folder" with "6.0" it should fix this issue if it is indeed the cause.
If not, then lets take a look at the crash log. Launch Audition and let it crash. Then open Applications > Utilities > Console. Open User Diagnostic Reports and find the most recent entry for Audition. Drag that to an email and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and I can take a closer look.
In my case the problem occured when I upgraded to OS 10.8.4. Note the fix sugested in #6 above did not resolve the problem for me. But following the lead that the issue is a font problem, we opened FontBook, saw no indication of font issues...but after clicking on "Restoring Standard Fonts" and completing the restoration...we are now able to launch Audition CC successfully. As a result of Restoring Standard Fonts a number of fonts were placed in a "Fonts Removed Folder". If there is a font that you seriously need, add them back one at a time to see if the problem re-occurs.
I seriously appreciate the Adobe Audition CC Team for sticking with this issue.
