Note: This blog is mainly intended for those that have used Adobe Audition for Windows.



Recently I've entered the world of Apple! Yeah, Yeah.... don't start on me. But, after years of crashing computers, viruses, and waiting for my pc to load... After a discussion in the VU FaceBook group, as well as a nudging from my Friend | Radio Imaging Agent | Producer and The Mix Group Impresario , Jason Garte, I went and purchased myself a MacBook Pro. Yeeeeah Buddy!!!


The main reason I didn't want to convert was Adobe Audition wasn't available to Mac users and I refused to learn protools, well a while back Keith Alan contacted me and told me that there was a beta release of Adobe Audition for Mac, and then Mike Elmore recently reminded me. What?!?!?! OK!!! (in my lil john voice) I saw the link, read the reviews and decided... what the heck! I'll get a Mac. The Beta version may not work, but I need to have a Mac... right?


To my surprise the Adobe Audition for Mac works great, looks clean and I have been using it for the last two weeks. 


Oh! And as far as waiting for my computer to load up... ha! Gone are the days :)


Get your Beta Version of Abobe Audition free for a limited time.


BTW, I still use a regular mouse ;)

Hey guys...hmmm, this is interesting. I too have been resisting the iMonsters -they're taking over people's minds!- ahem, anyway.... So you may have just sold me on converting too - was toying with getting an iPad for travelling recording but M'bookPro might just do the business. Oh dash it, boys and their toys - I chastise a good friend for having and wanting everything Mac, now am going to have to backtrack! Later lovelies - beautiful day in Londontowne :-)

I have been using the Beta version for MAC for several months and I love it!   It was a great day when I actually stumbled on to it.  I was using the PC version with Parallels on the MAC but it was a pain in the #$&*(.  That's how much I like Audition.   I had been wishing and hoping it would happen did!  I now have it on my I-MAC and MAC Book Pro.   MAC and Adobe Audition....there's no going back now.   Have fun with it Zurek!

I also just bought an IMAC and downloaded the beta version. I still have a few crashes here and ther..still figuring it out and I love the Adobe audition.  I did contact Adobe, becaue I do not know howlong the freebie is for, and I notice I have to DOWNLOAD it again everyday.. I am know using both the pc and the Mac for safety. I just finished a HUGE job that made me some bucks, and I wouldn't have been able to do it without the new Mac. I am alsoam looking fro  the Avid Design Mbox2 w/ protools for my backup. I was injured in January and had to move my studio to my bedroom. Hope to have the old studio space remodeled and move everything to my user-friendly office. within a few days. Hope to post the pics ,slideshow of the move. Glaad to hear others are in the same boat, but it all looks positive. Pam





That's interesting, Pam. I have no crashes with the Beta Program, and never had to re-install. Maybe it's tested for newer Macs??? I have Mac OS X Version 10.6.6

Welcome to the bright side of computing.  I "Applaud" you! With the Mac's Intel chip, you can also run Windows on a Mac in it's native environment... no converting or translating software needed... the best of both worlds on just one computer.  I compared boot-time for Windows XP on a Mac Pro and the latest, fastest Dell.  It was up and running much faster on the Mac!  It's simply a better computer, no matter what you're running. Mac's were developed, from the beginning, to handle audio and graphics, whereas PC systems had to be extensively modified to do so. Which is why most audio and graphics companies are Mac-based.  You'll love it!

Minion?  Neverrrrr!   I'm another guy who switched this year and love the productivity of the Mac.  I have put away the white coat and aspirin for good.  The Mac-Dobe news is great, Zurek, thanks for that.  Oh, and I agree with Bob and Luis - Twisted Wave is not one to miss.

I've been using Adobe Audition for Mac on my MacBook pro for the past several months.  I'm happy to report it is the same reliable software I remember from its Cool Edit Pro days.  I love it!

Nooooooooooo! Another Apple minion born! lol

I'm def an Apple hater. Been there, done that, not for me. But whatever makes you happy (and money). :-)



Once you go hard core Mac, you will never turn back.

Great News! Thank you Zurek!! Long time mac user & long time audition user forced to edit on my pc.

NO MORE!! This is a great day!!

As a guy who was editing on Ampex 350's and 440's in the bad old days, and who has a fleet of macbookPro's,

you might want to check out Audacity.   It's freeware, and has served me well thusfar. 

The learning curve was amazingly short and steep.

Thanks, Jim. This blog serves notice to long time Adobe Audition users, not those interested in trying something new.
