audition 3.0 on windows 7 home premium o/s
i would like these facilitys returned please
I used cool edit pro 2 for many years, i tried audition 2 and didnt like it as much, i have purchased audition 3 as i now run windows 7 and it has slowed my work by at least 50%.
1. when i wish to delete small noises breaths etc from my production work, i can only delete once i stop the track then delete the selected breath or click etc then when pressing play the track starts at the begining again and i have to find my place all over again,
its not so bad with a 30 second advert or sound byte etc but it is a complete (insert preffered painful experience) if i am working on a 1 hour audio programme, it is so frustrating.
2 if i wish to listen to a program to proof it after editing and maybe edit the odd thing i have missed the first time, i cannot do anything else with my computer without stopping the audio playing, for example i may wish to read a script at the same time so i click on the start bar and immediately the audio stops and if i wasnt looking at the display i again have to find my place all over again.
with cool edit pro 2 i can delete on the fly as in point 1 and also leave the audio playing while i browse the internet or check scripts are correct etc while the audio plays merrily in the background, and if i hear a blip or need to make an alteration i simply bring up cool edit from the minimised position, note the time on the recording, delete the offending item and restart the audio at the place i left off while going back to ebay or word or the script or whatever i like really,
i read on the forums the audio stop thing is something to do with the asio drivers and that the engine has been changed because some people complained en masse about not being able to burn cds direct from audition or some such thing,
to lose these functions and the use of the full duplex because of this, if it is true is beyond madness the benifits are minimal compared to the disadvantages for people like myself who edit mile upon mile of tedious educational and informational audio
i simply save audio as mp3 and then burn to cd using nero, i mean its not rocket science :)
anyway let me know if you can sort this out with a patch or something,
until then i have discovered that i can actualy run cool edit pro 2 on windows 7 in xp compatability mode.
so that is what i am doing for now it just seems a waste to bin a £300 program because it has become uneconomical to use timewise
so please can this problem get sorted.
oh and as a by the way the file save option always seems to revert to wav.
whereas cool edit left the selection wherever i left it last time i saved an audio file
on a positive note audition 3 has improved visually it looks a lot better
ps, i realise that cool edit pro was developed by syntrillium and not adobe
