Adobe makes Audition for Mac official

updated 09:35 am EDT, Wed June 23, 2010

Beta likely towards end of year

A Mac version of Audition is in development, Adobe has confirmed. Earlier this month, video showed the software running on a Mac, but without any apparent acknowledgment from the developer. The arrival of Audition could be important, as it will compete in some respects with other professional audio production tools, such as AVID's Pro Tools and Apple's Logic. Adobe will try to carve out a niche in broadcast and post-production work, a representative says.

In terms of features, Audition is expected to focus on noise reduction and restoration functions. Two tools, Paint Brush and Healing Tool, will mimic commands in Photoshop. And although the core software is slated to be 32-bit, Adobe says that many of the DSP algorithms and processes should be 64-bit. A beta of Audition should become available this winter, before the end of the year.
