It seems Audition 4 is out, (in Production CS5.5 bundle)
Has anyone here tried it yet, so to share impressions?
Except Mac support and deeper pipes with other Adobe products, I don't see much news

It's only PC, Mac version is not ready yet (except beta from couple of month ago)

I tried the Mac public beta a few weeks ago and really liked it. Very fast, intuitive and (IMHO) pretty user interface. Details on the feature set are available in this thread and the links therein.

Note that some of the features from Audition 3 (like CD burning and tone/noise generation) are missing in Audition CS 5.5 but will be back in CS 6 next year.

Edit: 2 questions to klonuo: 1. Did you have to download the entire production bundle to get this Windows version? It seems Audition CS 5.5 cannot be downloaded separately (yet). 2. Did you have to do something special to get "libsndfile" into the "Supported formats" list, or does it come like this out of the box?

Good point, I totally missed generators.
It seems like Au and Sb are merged in one product, and while you'll always miss what's missing I'm still under impression that compromises been made are acceptable for me (if price is not tongue.gif)

Well, it depends on your approach. AFAIK Au 4 is part of Production Premium and Master Collection bundles. You can get them from adobe.com using trial2 domain and your Adobe account (it's a free trial)

I could not test all supported formats, but for example MPC support in libsndfile does not stand for musepack, while speex can be decoded by QT although there is not SPX on screenshot biggrin.gif
Output formats are limited to WAV/AIFF/MOV(audio) and additional MP3 (FhG)

I am disappointed by the limitations in output formats. It appears that with the code rewrite, the old cool_lame and similar flt format plugins won't work. Has anyone tried?
Edit: I see from their forums that FLAC export is on their "to do" list.
