Video shows Adobe Audition running on a Mac

updated 06:45 pm EDT, Fri June 4, 2010

Menus appear to be Mac-native

A YouTube video appears to show an unannounced version of Adobe Audition running on a Mac. Although a VMware icon can be seen on the OS X menu bar, the software does not appear to be running through virtualization software. As the user navigates through the interface, the menus show Mac-native design rather than the Windows layout.

Audition is a digital audio editor similar to Apple's Logic offerings. The software can be used for mixing, editing, recording, or mastering. Users have access to several music-oriented features, such as VSTi support, that are not offered in Adobe's Soundbooth software.

Adobe has yet to announce plans to make a Mac version of Audition. The last major update was released three years ago.

    Well, considering Adobe Audition...

    has been dead for years replaced by Adobe Soundbooth, it probably is running inside VMWare.

    Big deal...

    If you're using the best editing suite in the world for the Mac- Final Cut Studio- you're already using Soundtrack Pro, so what's the point?

    Professionals use ProTools or Logic...we do!

    Both Audition, Soundbooth, and Soundtrack Pro are toys when compared to Protools. But at least Soundtrack Pro is usable in a pinch and when on the road. The Adobe offerings are just a joke. Remember, the basis for their code is CoolEdit, which used to be a free barebones audio editor (and not bad for what it was). Now Adobe Soundbooth is just an overbloated version of that.
