New in v5.5

You can also take advantage updates to audio editing, mixing, sweetening, and restoration tools no matter the platform.
  • New high-performance playback engine - has been completely rebuilt to dramatically improve the responsiveness on projects of all sizes. Your ability to open sessions and files has also been increased by as much as two to three times faster. You can work on multi track sessions and single file edits at the same time, all the while getting smoother performance when applying multiple effects to multiple tracks.
  • Better workflow flexibility - with round trip editing and project exchange. This means that if you are a video editor and you are using Premiere Pro, you can quickly clean up your audio in Audition and they will instantly be updated in your Premiere project saving you processing time. Through the use of OMF and XML Interchange compatibility, you can work with tools like Apple Final Cut Pro and Avid Pro Tools as well.
  • Native multichannel support - giving 5.1 surround sound capability. You now can create entirely new surround sound projects or add the finishing touches to existing 5.1 projects and then save to a full 5.1 surround master. You have true 5.1 metering and effects available on surround tracks and sessions in all modes including the Multitrack Editor, Waveform Editor, as well as in the Mixer.
  • New effects - have been added to Audition including a DeHummer - which lets you locate and remove constant-level noise sources, SeEsser - removes vocal sibilance from interviews, dialogue, and voice-overs, Speech Volume Leveler - matches the volume of different actors recorded at different distances from a single microphone in the same audio clip, and Surround Reverb - lets you tailor levels for all channels in 5.1 files, including Center and LFE (Low Frequency Effect) channels, gives you a selection of room impulses, and offers precise control of reverb parameters and output balance controls.
  • Expanded library - that includes more than 10,000 royalty-free sound effects that you can just drag and drop into your multitrack project to customize, combine, edit, and layer them. You can combine music and sound effects to get just the track the way you want it. When it is done you can send it into Premiere Pro or Flash Professional.
  • Broadcast WAV support - and simplified XMP metadata panel lets you view and edit your XMP metadata through a simplified interface and the fact that the support for XMP metadata includes the Broadcast WAV (BWF) schema, means that automated workflows within Production Premium and other radio and TV production systems.
  • Auto-saved XML file format - saves your sessions in the robust, flexible, and nondestructive XML format. XML is a human-readable standard for electronically encoding data in documents that can be used to reconstruct a file in the event it becomes corrupted, as well as to facilitate conversion to proprietary formats used by different manufacturers. You also can import Adobe Audition 3 sessions, and then save them as XML.
  • New History panel - gives you the ability take waveform and multitrack mixes back to earlier states within the same session just like you can do with graphic edits in Photoshop. Experiment with signal flow though a series of audio effects, try out different surround mixes, or apply a variety of degrees of noise reduction to a track, with the assurance that you can recall your original settings with a single click in the History panel.

Cool Edit Pro and Windows 7: lost ability to see CD-R/W drive

Cannot 'see' my CD drives anymore to pull a voice track off of my own CD to work on it in CE. Any idea of it's a Windows 7 update that causes you to lose this function that you had in XP?

why cant there be a provision for auto save when recording with the adobe audition 1.5

i just install adobe

i just install adobe audition on my xp and i can not play any wave and record aswell, any idea?

What happened to Audition rippin' mp3's?

Other programs will rip it, but Audition won't.

Does the fix address this? Don;t want to bother with it if it didn't. I keep getting the error that it is (cda) not supported.

Try to do it as a PCM raw which doesn't work either. When did Adobe disable this?

Adobe Audition 3 Crashes!! In XP

When I click on write CD in CD view a window pops up that says "if would like to continue your work later click "OK" and then just shuts down when I click. I have windows XP media edition....Anyone know how to Fix this problem? Thanks

Adobe auditon 3 keeps crashing on Windows 7

Yes, Adobe Audition keeps crashing on Windows 7.
Every time when I use some kind of effect on the wave file it crashes almost immediately, I did not have this problem with Windows XP or Vista.
The crashes do not occur when i make simple edits like cuts for example, but as soon as I use an effect it crashes, very irritating.

I use the latest (which is from 2008!, when are they going to update?) version of Auditon by the way, which is V3.0.1

Maybe it's time for an update for Audition Adobe, Windows 7 is out, almost a year now!

type 2 mp3

I have type 2 mp3 files that I want to convert to reg mp3?
Type 2 wont play on some windows media players.
Still don't know why adobe audition 1.5 saved them in that format?

Help for vista folks and a question for you all!

I read someone Else's complaint that had Adobe Audition 2.0 with Windows XP and he said he had Cool Edit 2.1, and he needed to add these two fixes ASl04ALLV2 and AVS AUDIO EDITOR 4.2 ; I hope it works for you.

Maybe you can help me too?

This is kind of embarrassing for me because I am a digital/ virtual kind of guy; When it comes to recording I have no clue. I just inherited a family record label and am starting from scratch on learning recording and fixing/remastering some of our old copyrighted songs which I currently have on MP3.

They are old songs with pops and crackles. I am a song writer but only the lyrics. I do not write music. I can compose by ear and and with the program for sure. And I sing a little. But will definitely need voice enhancer. I want to start small. Can you suggest the right home recording program and equipment for windows vista, without costing an arm and a leg? I would also like a program that will print out the sheet music when finished.

I thought I found one on line today and then lost it . Can most of the recording programs print the sheet music when composing and editing of song is completed?

Conversion to Vista?

I have a real Version of Audition 3.0 and It crashes! Even doing the smallest edit. It all started after Service pack 2 anyone else having this problem?

I had same problem on XP.

I had same problem on XP. Finally uninstalled ALL Adobe a/v related media products (not Illustrator). Re-installed Audition. Fixed. Now I'll reinstall Adobe products one-by-one ...

Clue: Download any new Adobe file viewers or video players or related updates recently?

I need help with Audition 3.0!

I have Audition 3.0, Since switching to Vista from XP, I have bleedover from one track to another while recording.

For instance, I drop music bed in track 1, then record voiceover.
When I put Track 2 into edit mode, it also recorded music from Track 1.

It's not the mic picking up headphones because I can lay the headphones across the room and it still does it.

This did not happen on XP. Anyone have any suggestions?

Problems with Adobe audition 3!

I have the same problem.......I used XP and had toreinstall Xp. Now theres that stupid bleeding in. If you have solved the problem do tell me how.

Audition problem with Vista...

Hi ! Just went back on the site where I posted my original bleedover problem. I solved it by throwing a blanket over my BRAND NEW computer I'd just bought and going back to USING MY OLD COMPUTER which has XP and Audition 1.5 Did you ever figure out the problem?

Use the compatibility

Use the compatibility feature in windows vista/7

Adobe Audition 2.0v upgrades!

I have the 2.0v original with me and i need to run on vista .but there is a problem on running on it. I need assistance if there is away or possibility before buying the latest one.

Conversion to Vista?

I have the original 1.5 -- Vista does not support it -- Is there not a patch/fix to avoid spending more $$ ?? Am I being forced to buy all new software ??

Re: Conversion to Vista?

I had my computer crash recently and lost the Adobe Audition 1.5 installed. I don't have the installation disc. I would be willing to buy your, or pay for a copy through PayPal. Please let me know.

When I got Vista I thought

When I got Vista I thought that I would have to upgrade to the latest Audition software, but I decided to try and install it anyway and it worked. It's been about two years and I've had no real problems with compatibility. I say "no real problems" because I'll still have the ocassional crash when using too many effects or filters, but it's no different than I had on XP. So I'm actually kind of surprised to read these postings.

Re: Conversion to Vista?

If you have legitimately purchased Adobe Audition 1.5 in the past the Adobe would have the record somewhere of the serial number being activated. You should be able to contact them and be able to work something out without having to repurchase a copy.

You can contact Adobe at the following address:
