Audition and Soundbooth are very different animals. Many, maybe thousands of, audio pros do use Audition for many reasons, particularly in Radio. Soundbooth was designed to be a cross platform audio add on for use with Adobe's video tools and is therefor IMHO not a full audio editing package.
Perhaps I didn't word my thoughts well ... I didn't mean to imply that no audio pros do or should use Audition ... I just meant that, since Soundbooth doesn't at all seem to be a comprehensive audio tool, I don't really understand the reason for its existence. I'm a video editor/motion graphics designer and Soundbooth doesn't even approach meeting my audio needs ... why not just combine the two and make one good one, which I would consider Audition to be much more of the starting point for? I was only saying that, if they do decide to combine the two, in my opinion, they should be careful not to overcomplicate the result too much in an effort to make it all things to all people as they seem to be doing with Photoshop ... why in the world does Photoshop, as the best raster image manipulation software on the planet, need to become bogged down with video editing features when Adobe already offers some of the best video editing tools with After Effects and Premiere!? Seems to me its only to appease the few who are unwilling to use the right tools for the job at hand.
