Editing Software

Recommended Posts

With lots of audio editing software around at the moment, I was just wondering what programs people used to record voiceovers, and/or edit production pieces? And, what platform of PC/Mac they have (I.e. Windows XP)...

 

I'll start...

 

When I'm in Oxford (With family), I use Adobe Audition and have Windows XP

When I'm in Cheltenham, I use Logic on my Macbook with Leopard.

 

When I'm anywehere other than these places, it's normally Logic on my Macbook, or whatever system the studios have! :)

I run Windows XP and mainly use Adobe Audition 3.0 and Cool Edit Pro. I also have Audacity but don't really use it all that much.

 

I use Magix Music Make Producer Edition for producing some of my music/beds as well.

 

I use to have pro tools but I gave that computer to a "needy" colleague of mine.

I'm on XP with Adobe Audition 3.0

And, Kris, Pro-tools is not necessarily an upgrade. I had it, it wouldn't run well with XP, kept crashing, I had latency problems, on top each plug-in is about £200, the basic version didn't even have a reverb... I quickly abandonned it for Audition which is wonderful!

I know some people will disagree with me, but unless you switch to Mac, Pro-tools isn't great, despite the fact that it's supposed to be compatible. There was this funny story that in one of the audio training department at Microsoft, all the employees were learning Pro-tools on Mac machines... there must be a reason for that...

I'm using GarageBand on Mac Os X.

 

Free and when you know how to use it it's very powerfull. I do lot of radio imaging production with it. All jingles of my webradio W26 Radio and for local FM and others webradios.

I don't think I will bother with Pro-tools now, especially with the latency problems and the expensive plugins.

 

I suppose it differs with some people and although I've heard good and bad things about Pro-tools - I was going to buy the M-Audio just to try it out to see what all the fuss is about.

I don't really do much editing any more, but back in the day when I used to present a bit, it was Cool Edit Pro.

 

Got Adobe Audition installed, which is pretty good - although not that much different to be honest, still comes in handy when needed :)

strange .. have never seen this topic before :)

 

I run XP and use several editing softwares

- To record and edit voice I still prefer my SoundForge pro .. its also great to convert "all" types of media - SoundForge pro gives also great results to make and edit your own loops, etc

- To edit and mix voice and music (jingels, IDs etc) I use Cool Edit pro - positive is that all .dll files of SoundForge can be loaded into the SFX section of Cool Edit ...

- To make some special loops, beds, effects etc I use Fruity Loops 5 - FL has a wonderful virtual voice generator ..

- The Magix Music Generation don't runs that ok on XP - concerning my settings - but it has a superb vocoder section who can be used to any kind of short VOX and musicsamples

 

So I'm using for a part the best of both worlds .. if all seperated results are ready they are getting a final edit and mix into my Cool Edit

Visit and listen @ BW !

Cool Edit pro - don't need to say any more! The others all have their goodpoints, but CEP has LOTS and LOTS of them!

 

I started with a rusty razor and an EMI splicing block,so it is all a luxury to me.

What would have taken 8 hours now takes 20 mins....so I ain't complaining!

If I have helped you with a Freebie- please be kind enough to add a link from your own site or blog to mine- thanks! http://arthurburton.net

 

Thank You!

Good grief,

 

I must be behind the times here, I'm still using AA 1.5, everytime I tried to upgrade the AA 2 and AA 3 ate my computer alive. So AA 1.5 has been the one to stick to for me, granted it's on an XP machine, infact 3 XP machines in my studio have it, one in the office for late night production and one on the production room comp and one on the air machine for recording archives....

 

so it's all good in the hood for me

One small request at BW is that you user proper grammar and punctuation when replying to a thread. This ensures that all people will be able to read it.

 

Thanks!

No sir, that is not what I'm saying at all. I asked if you could try to use proper grammar and punctuation. I'm not trying to turn you away, just asking if you could kindly try to use proper grammar and punctuation. If it is difficult for you, that is no problem. I did not know that. I know that sometimes there are members who are very lazy who just type and it makes no sense. Your post made sense, but I wasn't sure what software was what, so I googled it and made the correction (mainly for myself, and possibly others). Spelling isnt really and issue, it is more of the listing things. I'm not trying to offend anyone, and I do apologize if I have.
