Adobe Audition Version 2.0 is Terrible

Well I paid for a upgrade to Adobe Audition 2.0 and I have to say it was a big mistake. They have really blew it in the new design. What was a very nice piece of software in version 1.5 has been ruined. Part of it is how they are doing the Audio patching, I have messed with it for about 3 hours and still cannot capture audio from a application on the desktop.

With Audition 1.5 I was able to choose what you hear as a sound source and audition would pick up not only the microphone input but any tracks I played on quicktime, winamp, windows media player. But for now the new version does not allow this. It also is doing something funky in the sample rate department by forcing me to only have 48,000 as a selection versus the 44,100.

I am also presented with like 30 audio patching options, the weakness in this application so far is definitely the way the audio patching is setup, it is not for the faint at heart. Messages to support on the issues have remained unanswered so I am continuing to use Adobe Audition 1.5 podcasters I do not recommend Audition 2.0, I will keep you advised if they fix these things.

Also once again no deesser with this version.

One thought on “Adobe Audition Version 2.0 is Terrible

  1. Hi I was reviewing audition 1.5 and was really impressed with the features, especially the area where you can select multiple soundcards to patch signals into the program. I have heard alot about audition 2.0 and was blown away by the new features, until I read that the program can only use one sound card at a time, because of its ASIO driver. I find this really ridiculous that a previous version will have a feature that 2.0 doesn’t. Can you clarify this? Also if the above is true do you have a fix? I am shopping around for a software, if there is a fix for this then it’s a done deal.
