Just curious.

Adobe Audition allows recording in waveform mode, by simply opening a new waveform window and recording in it, requiring it to be saved AFTER recording.

Recording is also possible in multi-track mode, where a session is created (or a previously-created template can be used) to record into. In this mode, Audition writes the file WHILE you record.

Which mode do you like and why?

I always use waveform mode. The only time I use a session is if I'm adding music or SFX or recording more than one character. Even then, I record the waveform first and then create a session.

Most of the time, I just record first and then name the file and save it when I'm done. However, you can open a waveform and immediately name and save it before recording anything. Then, when you want to close the file, it will ask you if you want to save it. Because I generally don't close my files as I finish recording them, I sometimes forget to save my final edit before sending the file to the agent or client. Fortunately, this is a fairly rare occurrence, but it has been known to happen.

All the above.

Remember, IF you record in MT mode you should "mute" (or solo the track you are recording with) other tracks. Otherwise this leads to crossover as AA will record the inputs/outputs of all tracks into the one recording.

If you can hear it, AA will record it (in MT mode).

Waveform... I only use multi-track when I need to use multi-track.
I keep a file on my desktop that is 20 secs of 48kHz, 24-bit, room tone (named "Peter Bishop - "). When I want to record something, I simply drag the file from the desktop to Audition, and I'm ready to go. It ensures the correct format and I don't have to faff around getting room-tone or anything. Just do a "save as" when done (and the blank file stays intact on the desktop).

Same...except for when I'm doing punch and roll because I get a weird audio glitch in waveform mode and Everytime you punch in it changes the zoom range. Neither are an issue with multitrack mode and it works like a charm.

Always record in MT mode here.

If you've ever had a power cut while recording in waveform mode, then you'll understand why!

Can you elaborate on that?
