Adobe Audition is the latest in sound editing. The newest interface matches the rest of the Adobe Video Collection package (along with Premiere Pro, Encore DVD, and After Effects) to a T. While most full service Digital Audio Workstations (DAW) run almost exclusively on Mac’s, Audition only works on Windows, which may make shortcuts a little difficult to get used to. But the program is absolutely complete for use of tracking, editing, mixing and mastering on a professional level even as far as the pitch shifting/time-stretching Radius, made by iZotope, the same algorithm used by industry trademarks like Cakewalk and Digidesign.
The new design of the frequency editor makes it much easier to pin-point selections and change them around to your setting. With this you can even take selections, put them into Photoshop, and change them that way. One of the best updates with the new version is the increased latency when recording. This seemed to be one of the biggest drawbacks of the older version and Adobe definitely corrected it. The Guitar Suite-effects sound awesome, mimicking analog guitar sounds to affect any track with wah, distortion and compressor. This really is a wonderful DAW where the limits of what you can do truly end with your imagination.
