Audition (and Cool Edit prior to that) seems to be widely used by broadcast production people. Someone step up to the plate and knock this one out of the park for me..... please!
I've been using this software for years at home. First as a bit of an 'art project' just to learn how digital sound works. Through the years I have recorded a lot of public events and house-of-worship events and edited them for public distribution. Now I do voice-over work from a home studio.
My main machine is a do-everything fire-breathing animal. (Everything from income taxes down to these delicate book narrations.) But it is a rude, noisy animial. So about Christmas-time I bought a little plane-jane low power machine with Windows 7 and put only TWO programs on it: Audition CC2014 and Total Recorder from High Criteria. I built a cocoon around the little computer. Boys and girls: Can you say "It Is QUIET!"
So yesterday I decided it was time to copy the files that contain Keyboard Shortcuts and Favorites and move them from the Fire-breather to the timid-and-quiet little box hiding under the desk. NOTHING WORKS like the Internet folks claim it will. Anyone have an idea on what I may be doing wrong? I should be able to EXPORT "Application Settings" from one computer and IMPORT Application Settings into the other. I did that. Nothing good happens.
Both machines running Windows 7 Home Premium, both machines running Audition CC2014.
Has anyone here conquered that beast? Willing to share your secret?
(I probably could have manually input or recreated all of them by now. But the idea that some computer program is going to pin me down in an arm wrestling event is not a happy event in my life.)
Just to remind myself all this effort is worthwhile, I looked back on my hard drive today to find an original recording I did just a little less than two years ago. Through a whole series of "a little bit here" and "a little bit there" steps like putting a computer inside a 'muffler box' I have reduced the noise floor in my recordings somewhere north of 20 dB. Yes.... all these little steps have been worthwhile!
