Adobe’s professional level audio editor benefits nicely from the new design and integration features of these Adobe Production Studio releases. Audition 2..0 shares Production Studio’s elastic, unified workspace, with custom workspaces, and useful touches like the tilde (~) key for quickly maximizing a highlighted panel to full screen. In terms of design, this is an elegant upgrade, that with all its rounded corners and smooth contours looks more ergonomic, but also that does away with the on-screen clutter that marred the previous version of Audition. Much of the cleaner look in Audition 2.0 is achieved through better use of toggle buttons and tabs – mainstays of Adobe product design. The only drawback with such a flexible workspace is that it’s easy to inadvertently obscure some of the controls, especially before you’ve familiarized yourself with them.
