I'm not even a Midi guy, never used it myself, but reading Steve's posts whenever people complain about ''missing features'' with each new release of Audition is hilariously depressing. When Midi is eventually implemented (not half assed), you guys will get what you want, and he'll look for something else that's missing to defend.
For now, just accept it for what it is, and hope in the future (update or completely new version) they'll have more of the basics (as well as advanced features included or not included in traditional DAWs or "audio editing software")
If you're a fan of Audition/Cool Edit, read _Durin_'s posts. Because even when things are missing, he isn't speaking from ignorance.
Like I said, I'm not big on Midi. But DJwayne2000 (and others) has a point that shouldn't be easily dismissed or ignored. Artists all over the internet are hugely into Midi and would completely ignore a program that is weak in that area. For post-work, Mastering, editing, etc... Audition is still perfectly capable. I'm curious to see how well you guys are doing with Audition since the release of CS5.5.
I want to see you guys do well. Despite what happened with CS5.5, I am still a fan. CS6 looks like a major upgrade. And I believe it'll do well. There are a whole lot of artists who need really good Midi to really consider a piece of software. Many respectable forums lead me to believe this is so. No use putting down features/tools (and forum members) just because Adobe hasn't been able to implement them correctly. You risk pushing away a lot of current and potential customers. But you know that.
Like Kost7 said: over on the left side of the multitrack window, click on the Properties tab. In the Time Display section, you'll find Tempo. Enter the bpm there that you want. But be careful with it - some people have been having issues with the metronome - when it gets to the end of the page display, it'll hiccup and throw you off. Try it. If it works for you, it's magic.
I used and still use Cool Edit Pro and I record a number of songs continuous and then I separate the individual songs as in
In Cool Edit this is done by blocking the individual song
1. Press CTRL X to cut the song
2. Press CTRL SHIFT N to open in a new window
3. Save the file with its name
4. Press CTRL W to close the open window and then do the same things for all the other songs
I tried this using Adobe CS6 and while it did it, I could not play the individual songs
Now the originals were in MP3 format and it saved the songs as Wav, could that be the problem?
I really appreciate your assistance in this. Can I call you? either phone or Skype
