MIDI implementation & Audition on the Mac? Been Waiting patiently since the Cool Edit days..........

Dec 27, 2010 4:45 PM

Has anyone tried the MIDI features on the Mac Beta version? I know version 3.0 for windows has rudimentary MIDI features, including a piano roll that works with a handful of soft synths. Is this/will this be featured on the Mac version? Are the MIDI features going to be updated and improved in future versions?

 

I have been a faithful user of Audition since the Cool Edit days. It’s my favourite program for audio editing, music production and mastering. I especially enjoyed the simplicity of Adobe Audition 1.5.

 

When Audition was still called Cool Edit ten years ago I was amongst those eagerly hoping for MIDI implementation. Like many users I use Audition along side other MIDI editors and patiently import audio between programs. Like many original users I’m not interested in fancy video editing and dilution of the audio engine. Please, please include standard MIDI features and produce the perfect all-in-one audio editor that Cool Edit was always destined to be.

 

Do we need to start another online petition? We’ve been patiently waiting such a long time…………

    MIDI has never been Audition's strong suit, and many users have been very vocal against implementing more advanced MIDI support.  During this re-write, the decision was made to not implement MIDI support at this time in order to focus on the audio editing and mixing workflows and not try to rush a MIDI toolkit that may end up lacking the usability Audition is known for.  We will prioritize MIDI support during our next development cycle and determine the scope of that support for the future.  I'll include both of your comments in the feature backlog notes for this feature.
