    Adjusting the sample rate

    Blastbot Community Member

      How do I adjust the default sample rate setting to 44100?

          Under Preferences > Audio Hardware   you can set the default sample rate used by Audition.  However, if this does not match your physical hardware sample rate, you'll want to click the Settings button to ensure this matches.  Otherwise, Audition will perform a real-time sample rate conversion on playback to ensure compatibility with your device.  (Your data will still remain whatever sample rate you choose, but real-time playback will match your hardware.)

            What's the procedure on Adobe Audition 3.0?

              If you are not going to answer this because it is on an older product, that is lame.  I tried to get on a forum for said older product, but that is grayed out from the list of products you have a forum on, which is also lame.

                Well, I certainly don't wish to be described as "lame," Blastbot, as it is a personal fear of mine.  The forum for previous versions of Audition is available at http://forums.adobe.com/community/audition/audition_previous but since we're here and my earlier obligations today have wrapped freeing up a few minutes of my time, I'll be happy to walk you through the process for Audition 3.0.

                 

                In Audition, click Edit > Audio Hardware Setup...  In the dialog that pops up, you'll see the current hardware sample rate listed and a Control Panel button that will display the device configuration panel for the selected driver.  You should be able to change your sample rate by clicking that button, depending on which audio driver is selected.  The default "Audition Windows Sound" driver, which is generic and best suited for audio devices without their own drivers, defaults to the Windows sample rate.  If you have a good audio device with its own, native ASIO driver, you can usually modify the sample rate within their control panel.

                 

                Since you're apparently running Windows, although I'm not certain which version you have, you may need to change the sample rate of your audio device at the Operating System level.  You can usually reach this menu by opening the Windows Control Panel and launching "Sounds and Audio Devices" (on Windows XP) or "Sound" (on Windows Vista and Windows 7.)  Here, you'll need to navigate to your playback device selection, open the device properties, and adjust the default sample rate that you desire.

                 

                More detailed information can be found in the Adobe Audition Help documents either from the Help menu item, or the Help button located in the bottom-right corner of the Audio Hardware Setup window.  Additional information about Sample Rates can be found on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sample_rate

                 

                I sincerely hope this helps answer your question and relieves me the burden of lameness, at least as far as this issue extends.

                  Ha ha ha.  Sometimes getting a rise out of someone is the way to get some help.   Blastbot appreciates your sense of humor.

                   

                  Sorry to offend you.

                   

                  I was not accusing you of being lame.  I figured it was a lame corporate policy you had to follow.

                   

                  I appreciate you trying to help, but your pathing and your website take me in circles.  Following your link to forums for older versions of Adobe Audition leads me back to a place where I have to search all forums...and going on that path, I am once again back at the place I was before I posted on this forum: Audition 3.1 and older forums are grayed out.  I cannot post in them.

                    I think we can all agree this forum software has its lame moments.  In the "Overview" tab view at http://forums.adobe.com/community/audition  should be visible the complete list of Audition sub-forums.  If it's not visible, I may need to have someone on the forum team take a look.

                      Durin, it's not a visibility issue. Problem is that for the last few days, the audition_previous forum has been read-only - the option to start new discussions appears to have been switched off (probably inadvertently). Perhaps a quick chat with Todd could get it switched on again?

                        There's no such corporate policy.  Durin is actually on the product team for Audition, so most of his forum posts are in his spare time as it isn't really his job to give forum tech support.  Most of the time we need to prioritize which posts we respond to such that we have the most amount of time to implement features, as well as fix and test bugs in Audition.  To be fair, your original post was only 4 hours old.  Being able to wait a day or so to get an answer for an old product, should be within the realm of acceptability.   These forums were originally intended for user-to-user conversation and questions (with the intent that perhaps another user might answer your question).  I think we're all quite lucky to have Durin so dedicated the the success of Audition users that he answers _any_ questions, since you don't find this from most of the product teams on this forum.

                          I'm a zen optimist.  What can I say.

                           

                          I can still post to the forum, so it must be an admin-level thing.  I'll send a note to Todd and see if he knows the scoop.  Thanks.

                            One of the other forum administrators thinks that he fixed the problem. Let me know if you still can't post on the Audition 3 forum.

                              Well, the reply buttons have come back, so it's probably fine now - thx.
