Working with Permiere CEP + ExtendScript, my go-to reference was the the Premiere Pro Scripting Guide. I couldn't find anything similar for Audition, except for some examples in the Adobe CEP repository on GitHub (in the Audition folder).  Where can I find an API reference for Adobe Audition's ExtendScript?

No, not really - it's far too niche. The only place that I can think of that you might get some more help from is Adobe's Coding Corner forum.

The best resource for browsing the API and Commandset are probably two extensions from https://github.com/Adobe-CEP/Samples/tree/master/Audition: Script Dictionary and Application Commands. Once installed, you can launch these while Audition is open and it will populate with whatever objects and commands are available for scripting in the application.

The only other page we have any knowledge of at all, you've probably already seen - https://developer.adobe.com/audition/

 

We generally don't discuss this here, as mostly we're users, not coders.

Thank you @SteveG_AudioMasters_  for the link, that's where my research started back then: it still points to the Adobe CEP repository I mentioned above. Is there a place to ask programming questions specifically for Audition?

SteveG is right, there's not a great place to chat about Audition specifically... however, if you have a specific set of questions I can direct them to the Audition team (I've gotten a response for someone on the team before).

 

Online there's only this Audition-specific sample:  https://github.com/Adobe-CEP/Samples/tree/master/Audition 

And there are some more Audition resources for download here:  https://developer.adobe.com/console/servicesandapis/au

Hi @erinferinferinf , not exactly a specific set of question, I just wanted to know if the Media Encoder app was callable from Audition (you can do that in Premiere with the app.encoder ExtendScript object). 

More generally, I'd like to browse the Audition APIs, in order to understand what's scriptable in there. I couldn't gather much info from the GitHub samples.

Hmmm... since in Audition there's a menu option - File>Export>Export with Media Encoder, I'd say it was... 🙂

Not through the API though (I just checked).

🤔 I suspect what you could do is fire up ExtendScript Toolkit and browse the omv file, but that could be onerous if you're on macOS (post Catalina). (Some information in this guide.)

 

You could download the C++ SDK: https://developer.adobe.com/console/servicesandapis/au

@_durin_ the extensions you suggested seem exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks a lot!
