Playback Speed 1.5x 2x monochromatic with double click "L"
I know, currently this is not possible, but I'm thinking about this for a long time (a lot Audition went by since) and I cannot understand why you did't have implemented this feature I'm requesting here not 12 versions before version 13.
Currently we have a lot of podcasts, podcast customers and podcast editing employees in our firm. So my request here comes from a very "business like" standpoint.
My team and I love to cut podcasts with jkl. That's it.
And with Screenflow and even (that bugs me most) with Adobe Premiere I can double click "l" in order to playback double speed without changing the pitch level. I think professionally this is called "monochromatic" playback. However.
Why can Screenflow do that as a just simple Video recording tool (it's not a DAW guys). And why can even Adobe Premiere play double speed monochromatic? It's also specialized in video editing and not audio. But it just can do it out of the box. It's really nice to cut audio dobule speed with adobe premiere in comparison to audition... I could say with a wink.
But the video tool which I expect to be the most advanced, Adobe Audition, made by a company sooooo huge in creative editing, that I just can't understand why I even have to create this post. I mean our company is spending thousands of EUR per year for your software and other companies do too. So please, dear adobe audition developer team:
Why isn't there a feature under Edit>Preferences>Playback which is called: "monochromatic JKL Playback"
And why don't you see the trend, that many many content creators today cut podcast and voices of this world in 1.4x - 2x speed for faster workflows?
What also wonders me is that high paying customers of adobe audition tolerate that playback speed can only set to haf, 1x and double speed for jkl shuttle. Guys: you are a professional sound edition software. Called DAW I think. Even Vimeo can do such thing.
Sorry I sound rude, but I'm waiting for a few years for such a feature. And it's a very customer centric feature. Steve Jobs once should have opened your eyes for such kind of problems. He was aware that saving 1 second computer booting speed saves time in such a great measure equivalent to more than many human lives added together if you add all the wasted time together for all your customers.
I mean: when my employee listens to 30 hours audio material a week and you save him only a quarter just by adding this feature, you do us a great favour.
But somehow you must be blind for this problem. There are so many threads requesting such a feature. You should listen more.
More and more companies will release podcasting tools the next years. Quite a few of these will think about playback speed. If you want to vie with podcasting DAW's in the future, this is the most important feature you should care about. Make people being quicker 😀
All the best and looking forward to such a feature,
your (apart from that) happy customer
PS: here are some voices for my above described problem:

I can't believe this is being ignored.
