DO NOT UPGRADE to Adobe Audition CS 5.5 from 3.O......YET  You will LOSE the preview play in the "open files" window. To hear a file you now must open it. NO PREVIEW AUTOPLAY...unless you have memorized what all your files sound like, this missing function will KILL your workflow.

Promos are usually produced as a team effort and the feeling of camaraderie and unity of purpose among all participants… Continue

Yesterday my Pal Pal balance was negative $1250. The buyer had revoked the payment. His bank took back the money. Now any payments to my PayPal… Continue
