CS4 - 4.0.1 update - "Edit in Audition" is back!

Very good news - tho' admittedly only for those on a PC.

(It was removed from CS3 because it couldn't be offered cross-platform .... a decision which personally I thought really sucked).

About time. It only took them two years to repair what was not broken in the first place.

Only no audition for Mac, and Sounbooth is not very useful.

But good that's back for Windows users.

I'll be satisfied when Audition is back, not when "Edit in Audition" is back. A very insulting desicion, IMO, by Adobe, to replace it in CS3/CS4 with the watered-down, "Audition-for-dummies" Soundbooth. Why did they acquire one of the best audio editing apps on the market in the first place, if they're not going to offer it properly to their customers?

Audition is very much back, it's just not free with the Suite anymore. For a mere $99, Suite owners can "upgrade" to get the app. admittedly we should have gotten in the first place, as you suggest.

My only guess is that some video folks must have complained to Adobe that Audition was too complicated. What the real issues were, IMHO, is that Audition was sooo un-Adobe-like... just a dolled-up Cool Edit Pro with a foreign interface and toolset compared to other historic Adobe apps. Since I'm new to it, I have the same complaints about Flash... still sooo Macromedia-like, not Adobe. Every time Adobe acquires a product or industry, it takes them several versions to get the "look and feel" of the Adobe culture into it I guess. Plus, they run the risk of alienating the former users of the title. Rock and a hard place, I guess.

Soundbooth is plenty Adobe-like... it just kinda sucks compared to Audition. I just wish they had given me the choice... or thrown them both into the Suite. For 99 bucks, though, it's definitely worth getting Audition 3... and sending Adobe corporate a nice bit of stink-mail about it. They will eventually listen if enough of us complain.

My $0.02,

By back, I meant back in CS. The whole point of a production suite is to have a complete....well, production suite at your disposal.

I agree that Audition is not the most intuitive software for Adobe users, but at least it's a capable editor, and don't forget until this update there was no OMF support to pass a project along to Protools/Cubase, so this was extremely crippling in CS3.

If Adobe thinks some editors need a quick and simple solution for audio sweetening, they should incorporate something like Soundbooth as a feature into PP or Audition, not cripple the production suite by making Audition a standalone upgrade.

just my 2 cents...
cheers,
Jon.

I think Audition integration the way it is now is kind of useless anyway, unless it can import whole sequence for advanced mixing. Clip-based audio editing can be done in freeware Audacity too.

Dude - you need to buy Nuendo, not Premiere, if that's what you need.

My gripe is not about Premiere. Premiere leads the pack when it comes to audio editing (except Vegas). My gripe is that Adobe has two multitrack editors and not one of them can be put to appropriate use.
