Audio is tricky because both OS's handle audio differently. Yes, VST is cross platform but most users (I would guess greater than 90%) use core audio for Mac and Windows drivers for Windows.
One recommendation I could make is to try the Premiere Pro CS5.5 trial and see if your VST experience is better in the latest version. Audio is something that we're taking a close look at for the future.
Thanks for the fast reply. I will gladly try the new version, and i will post my experience in that matter.
You say that most users are using the native effects of premiere...well my next tought is...of course they are using only the native effects, there is hardly anything else compatible to find out there... If any of us had a choice, for example Waves or UAD or any other bundle with greater variety of plugins i think the choice would not be limited to the few plugins premiere internally has.Anyway thats also my opinion from experience.
thanks again, Mirko
No problem, happy to help.
One other point worth mentioning is that with Audition as a solid audio tool and a pretty good workflow between Premiere and Audition, you have other choices there too.
Yes, good point.
But in conditions where you must work fast, going in and out of the application is twice as time consuming and not really practical.
Also setting a preset on the audio effects in the mixer tracks seems impossible.So if i would like to set presets to ease my workflow or just to set a template for a less experienced audio user, it makes it also mission impossible. If you have any suggestion on that it would be reealy helpful.
Nest the original sequence into another, and then apply the clip effect to that nested sequence. This allows presets to be applied to a whole range of clips.
