WMA import is supported on all platforms. WMA export is unsupported at this time, though Creative Suite users can write native Windows Media formats with Adobe Media Encoder. Proper WMA support remains in our feature backlog and will be prioritized as planning begins.
(follow-up to what Durin mentioned)
On mac, you'll need Flip4Mac just like in Au CS5.5. On Windows, import of WMA is supported without third-party components, but you'll need to turn on DLMS in the Preferences panel.
since Adobe doesn't seem to want to answer my GUI related questions, and you seem to be a beta (or even alpha) tester, can you help out please and tell me whether the following issues have been addressed in CS6? (et seq...)
Only just seen this, but from memory also (unless I go and turn on another machine and play around for a while), I think Durin's nailed it. I don't think that waveform vertical zoom has ever done what you want it to - in order to do that, I believe that the display would have to be re-established at that zoom level every time you went back to the file, and you wouldn't actually save any time at all. What appears to be optimised is the establishment of a basic spectral display. If I wanted to do what you seem to be attempting to do, I'd open-append both files into one display, and put markers at the points I wanted to compare - it's relatively easy to hit those quickly, and under these circumstances the zoom level will remain the same.
Thanks, Colin and Durin, for double-checking. Looking forward to your reports.
And thanks, Steve! The open-append approach you describe sounds like a good work-around. But this must be done manually, right? i.e. I cannot open-append via drag-drop of files onto files already open in Audition, or can I? Regarding
"I don't think that waveform vertical zoom has ever done what you want it to":
You're probably right. So, Durin, Charles, et al: how about adding synchronized vertical waveform zoom to the feature list? (if it's not on the list already, of course.) I know that Audition 2.x (and 3.x IIRC) sync'ed the vertical (frequency) zoom in spectral view, and I hope this feature is re-established in CS6 (is that what you're indicating, Steve?) Because otherwise I have to manually zoom in on each file in the same way (or have to manually open-append, as suggested), which is precisely where I lose time.
If you Open Append to New then you can select all the files you want to compare to open at once.
Thanks for your answers, Durin and Charles.
I hope you'll update it soon to read/write WMAs like version 3.
It is welcome news that the developers have worked to clean up the VST sorting. I have plug-ins that would not work in CS5.5 because of their perceived channel count but worked in all other versions of Audition.
reading through the list of added features I suppose the following is still missing:
- find beats
- beat, CD track, CD index, and BWF-J markers
- rejoining split clips
- loop recording of multiple punch-in takes
- video thumbnails in multitrack sessions
or am I wrong?
Adobe has gone live with all of the CS6 applications, including Audition! Grab the 30-day trial from http://adobe.ly/IrXfBa and dig into it. There has already been a great response over twitter since launch, but I'd love to get feedback from our forum crew as well.
