Audition is back and now on the Mac!

Adobe Audition is back and now it will be available on a Mac!  That’s great news and we wanted to share this information with you. 

To get more information and sign up for a beta check out this link  Read on and get my take on what is unique about Adobe Audition.

For better or worse, I have a long background in audio.  I was working on ProTools even before it was  called ProTools.  My college degree is in music and I’ve owned my own recording studio in the past.  Suffice it to say, I know audio – or at least I used to!

If you hear me talk about Adobe audio, you will almost assuredly hear me say that Adobe produced the last revolutionary thing in audio. Revolutionary as opposed to evolutionary.  Lots of things are being done to evolve the DAW and perfect audio editing, but nothing revolutionary.

Adobe Audition 3.0 has long had something called Spectral Frequency editing.  A better way to describe it would be "3 dimensional audio editing."  In short, you can see three parameters instead of two: You get Frequency in addition to time and amplitude.  What that extra bit of information allows you to do, well, is revolutionary.  My trademark line when describing Frequency Space editing is "If you can see it, you can fix it!"  Imagine being able to remove coughs or HVAC noise, or 60Hz rumble, or all manner of other audio noises. Or add reverb only to 1kHz through 4kHz.  Audition is flat out the best tool for this kind of work, 7-8 years after this feature was first introduced. 

So, to bring this functionality to the Mac and to a new generation of users is going to be awesome.  More information will be coming in the course of time, but for now, click the link, read up and get ready for some new audio tools to play with!
