    Excellent! It solved most of my problem in audio making! I wish Audition can integrated in CS5.5 or 6 (Mac) in future and help everyone make excellent audio and video.

    I too have been looking forward to Audition for Mac. I have downloaded the trial versio CS5 but so far I am disappointed. My main problem is that it is sluggish, particularly when it comes to zooming in and out. For the work I do, short soundbite editing it is absolutely essential that it performs quickly and dos not freeze.
    I use a Mac Pro with 2 fast hard drives 6 gb ram. I have also tried it on my IMac at home same result! Surely there is an answer?

    Looking forward to help and suggestions.

    Kind regards, Theo Boekel

      Ever find a solution?

      I’ve been using Audition since it was Syntrilium’s “Cool Edit” -circa 1999, so you can imagine the processors I used as DAW’s I too occasionaly notice sluggishnes when zoomed in, even now with a quad core and 8gigs of RAM. Never figured out if there was a cure, but there has to be… Please post if you’ve discovered how.

        Well, Ok decided to up my Wave Cach under system preferences to 1024 Mb. Problem solved. The lag was caused by swapping out to disk.
        The max recomendation of 32mb was for systems meeting the minimum requiremnet of 512MB RAM. -My guess. That’s just not rational when you have 6 or 8GB installed. IMHO
