I bought the disk version of Adobe Production Premium CS5.5, but the Audition Loopology Content is missing. I successfully downloaded them from the Download Page, but many of the files seem to be corrupted, sounding like a badly tuned radio station. Is this a problem on my end, or are the files getting corrupted during download? I downloaded the bad ones two or three times, same result. (Almost all of the Classical Orchestra files were this way, except for the Choir.)

I'll try a couple and see. Last time I heard, they were fine though.
*update* You could be right - I'm getting a 'corrupted header' message when I try to unzip the archive.
Okay, I've tried this again (Classical_orchestral) on another machine and either somebody's replaced the file, or my previous download corrupted, because it seems to be working fine here now. I've checked several files at random in it, and they all play fine.
Okay, this seems to be a Mac thing. My apologies. The files play fine in
Audition, but not on any of the Mac based applications. I was using the
Spacebar preview to test the files, and most played fine, but not others.
The files in question do not play in Quicktime, iTunes or Soundtrack Pro,
and GarageBand won't open them. ( Apparently, the Spacebar preview works
Maybe it's a 64 vs 32 bit problem, since that's the reason GarageBand gave
for not opening them. Or, it could be a Lion thing.
Anyway, since these files were designed for Audition, and play in audition,
there really is no problem with your files. I should have tested them
through Audition, but I've been using the Spacebar preview for so long that
Thanks for your help.
Do the Loopology files still have the .cel file extension? I haven't played with them in ages but I'd be surprised if anything other than Audition could play them since it's an old Cool Edit file type. Would saving them as a more conventional file type solve things?
They're unzipping as .wav files, which normally play in the Mac
applications. Maybe some of the files are older, and were created in a
different format? Anyway, I tried your suggestion and exported one out of
Audition as an .mp3 and .aif. Both played fine in Spacebar Preview. So, it
appears that only the initial .wav translation present any problem.
This may or may not be something worth correcting. Maybe not, since Adobe
Audition seems to have no problem with the files, and that's their original
intent. And, again, this may have something to do with Lion. I've
encountered another audio glitch associated with Lion, using Sorenson
Squeeze. Briefly, it won't translate a Quicktime Movie to .wmv unless it
has an audio track, even if the video has no sound.
So, this may be totally an Apple issue.
Thanks again for your time.
