Re: Interview With Cool Edit / Adobe Audition Creator - David Johnston
Thanks for this, and you assessment of the progression of the program is about gospel.
When Cool Edit Pro came out, I think I wandered around in the streets for about a week in a blissed out fog.
Holy s**t. Multi tracks audio recording and can even put a parametric eq on every channel. Feast of cool internal effects.
Was hard on waiting for any Syntrillium updates because these guys were on the hi end of the bell curve and delivering something impossible elsewhere.
Then the big crash. Adobe bought them out and rebranded Cool Edit Pro to Adobe Audition 1.0. Rage at the time because the installer bloated up to 25 mg with no benefit. Just now Adobe property.
Completely agree with your assessment that Audition 1.5 was the end of the line before things got forked up with bugs. Audition 2 a disaster. Audition 3 trying to fix or eliminate the crap done by ver 2.
Ancient technology but still use Audition 1.5 for wav editing.
Tragedy what Adobe did to a bright light in the sky.
