Adobe Audition CS5.5 handles 5.1 audio natively, which means it's easy to create and edit multichannel mixes. The Track Panner panel provides intuitive controls and visual feedback to help you locate sounds precisely in the surround field.

Fix audio problems fast with superior analysis and noise reduction. Adobe Audition makes it easy to automatically detect and fix common flaws such as hiss, hum, phase problems, crackling, and pops.

Who uses Adobe Audition?

Audio engineers and broadcast editors can use Adobe Audition to record voice-overs, create soundtracks, and enhance audio for broadcast. The Multitrack editor and Mixer provide engineers with a familiar interface they can use to solve audio problems quickly. Even recording and mixing entire multitrack projects from scratch is an easier task with Adobe Audition, with on-clip volume keyframes and fades, and the new modeless Effects Rack.

Video editors and other video professionals can use Adobe Audition to create, edit, and enhance audio for video and film productions. With the benefits of a familiar timeline-based interface and roundtrip editing with Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Audition makes it easy for video editors to fix problematic production dialogue, do sound design, and polish soundtracks. Clearly labeled restoration effects facilitate typical edits such as removing unwanted noise and matching unequal dialogue volume levels. Production teams exchange Avid Pro Tools sessions with Audition using built-in OMF import and export functions, and share files with other video NLEs with XML Interchange.

1.0 out of 5 stars STOP!! DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT! March 28, 2012
Platform for Display:PC
There are tears in my heart as I write this review.

Adobe has neutered their best audio editing program and sold it as an "upgrade"?

1. No support for Midi-based hardware control, playback or virtual image sequencing
2. No legacy session support. Previous sessions of Audition will not open in Audition CS5.5
3. Some effects have been renamed or not included in this release (tone generation, scientific filters, etc.)
4. No playback of audio files in file manager or while searching for files inside of Audition.
5. No Clip Grouping.
6. and most importantly...NO CD BURNING!!!

These are items that were important to me, but there are a host of other features that are gone.

When contacted, Adobe recommends using 3rd part apps to burn. How lame is that? A company recommending you go elsewhere to finish your production process?

I am recommending that you go ahead and start your production process somewhere else, that way you don't have to keep switching vendors and apps midstream.

Adobe, you messed up! You lied!! It is not an upgrade with you remove so many of the useful tools and then also remove older versions of the software, forcing people to an "upgrade" that is really a downgrade.

I am going to go looking for another vendor that wants my business...hello Pro Tools, can we talk?

2.0 out of 5 stars Things I don't like about this version July 5, 2011
By goo
Platform for Display:PC
This review will not be a complete review of the product, just pointing out a few things I don't like as a user of Audition 2.0/3.0 (and Cooledit).
1) CS5.5 removed 'Generate signal' functions, so you can't generate white noise, tones like in Audition 3.0 and before. This is a very useful feature for engineering work.
2) Space bar play and pause as before, but would not rewind to the previous starting position. This is inconvenient when you want to loop a selection.
Will update when I use it more.
