What do you like best?
Audition is amazing for audio editing. Since the waveform is visible and dynamic, you always see how you are changing your audio file.
The noise reduction is simply amazing and can turn a problematic shooting situation into really great result.
The auto-heal too is also a welcome feature. You can get rid of pops and microphone peaks instantly with only one small selection and keyboard shortcut.
Beyond that, the effects and controls that Audition has make fixing up audio really easy and hassle free. With it's integration with premiere, everything works so well - It's the main reason why we're committed to the Adobe suite.
What do you dislike?
Some tools should be streamilined a little. In my opinion noise removal should be built into the UI instead of all happening in another window and interface. There can be bugs too. It seems every time I try to remove noise for the first time, it doesn't work. I need to reselect, resample, and then it works.
I wish there was more auto-fix tools too. Especially for noise removal. The current auto-fixing tools never seem to yield very good results.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Noise reduction is really great. Try always recording a good 10 seconds with no talking before your clips to use as your sound sample. The longer the sample, the better the result.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We use Audition to fix poor audio from our Sony cameras. This happens when there's a lot of background noise or when there is corrupted audio. With it's integration with premiere, the workflow is seemless between the two programs.
