    Adobe Audition CS6

    Hi Folks,

    It would seem Adobe don't sell their products outright anymore? instead getting you to pay monthly subscriptions for Cloud based versions of their software (Creative Cloud)

    Their Audition software is something my daughter has been using at University and would like to continue to do so after she graduates this year. However, although I can get hold of copies of the software it only allows you a Trial 30 days without a 'key' or 'serial number' which now seems to be limited to buying a monthly subscription. As her use will only be sporadic rather than monthly the ability to buy it outright like she did for Photoshop as a student would be far better.

    Any ideas, or is anyone willing to pass on a serial number !!! Someone has suggested using some 'Crack' software but I don't have enough trust in such things.

    He who receives a good turn should never forget it; he who does one should never remember it.

    Mallah, Adobe would take the view that you are asking us to help you steal their software.

    They only sell as a subscription now, that is their prerogative (as much as I think it sucks as a way to do business). There are alternatives to most adobe software out there, some takes a bit more time to master than others but most is genuinely free GIMP replacing Photoshop for example.

    Using a serial, or key that you get from anywhere other than Adobe is a breach of copyright, and arguably a breach of international conventions on breaking encryption. Using software to crack as key is absolutely against UK law.

    Whilst there are "ways" of using the latest Adobe products without paying the monthly subscriptions, they are all illegal.

    One legal avenue to try might be to look at sourcing an older version of the software. At one point Adobe themselves actually made older versions of some of their software available to download for free - I don't know if they still do this, or if Audition was one of those products though. eBay would be another option, there's always old versions of software for sale on there - although you will need to use your own judgement as to how "legit" the sale is.

    Adobe did publish free licence keys for their CS2 suite some time ago. They are in the public domain and (last time I looked) easily found through Google. As far as I can remember the software you're looking for isn't in CS2 though.

    Apparently, had I changed the system date on my PC to sometime into the distant future and then installed the trial software, it would have effectively extended the trial period accordingly???

    Doubtful. Most of these thinks squawk out to an NTP like service to get the truth RE time. Remember that keygens etc come with free malware.

    How complicated a package does she need? Would a freebie such as [URL="http://www.audacityteam.org/"]Audacity[/URL] or [URL="http://apps.avid.com/ProToolsFirst/"]Pro Tools First[/URL] do what she needs? She can also try [URL="http://www.reaper.fm/"]Reaper[/URL] free and if it does what she needs then a personal license is only $60.

    I've just checked out the copy of Audition that I have as part of my CC subscription.

    There is nothing I can see it does that is not covered by Audacity.

    In fact I use Audacity to post process any audio stuff I need for video and I use it to process all my band rehearsal files - (I record the whole session - at least a couple of Gb of audio - then chop out the chat and export the tracks).

    Audacity is free, quick and well featured.

    She used Audacity (as I do) before she went to Uni where she was introduced to Audition which she feels/thinks is better/easier blah de blah. Looks like it's going to be Audacity again though.
