I would like to post a few helpful hints, if I may, for podcast hosts, or any of you who primarily use Adobe Audition for that type of Studio content.
My name is Jonathan Weiss, and I am a paralyzed United States Marine Corps veteran, who loves podcasting and music.
Adobe Audition is incredible, and I am constantly learning new things, and discovering more potential within this specific DAW.
The first hint is, and this is a no-brainer in my book, make sure to watch, and take notes on, the following topics, which are covered freely, by Mike from Music Radio Creative, on YouTube, or so many other extraordinarily helpful individuals, who have taken time to put these helpful shows together, for people just like you!
*Just a note here, I am not tied into MRC in any way. I just find their free videos, to be some of the most helpful, and instructive, of any which I have watched (and I have spent so many hours studying these videos).
FYI... I am still learning as well, even after having spent at least 80 hours, and at least 3 months, immersed in videos, tutorials, articles, and just plain trial and error.
Three months is nothing compared to the experience that so many people have out there, but if you are persistent, dedicated, and speak up and ask questions, you will finally get the hang of this, I promise you!
I hope this helped some of you, and if you would like to ask me a question, you are more than welcome to send me an email.

I should point out that storing files remotely to use in productions is generally a no-no - simply because you simply cannot guarantee the state of the internet when you want to use them. And Audition will frequently throw a hissy fit if you don't download files and use a local copy, as they can't be guaranteed to stream at the rate Audition needs them. Saving to a remote location is also fraught with problems - the only sensible way to do this is to save locally first, and then upload the file - that's what the handshaking is designed to cope with.
The internet in general isn't a safe place to store originals of anything - as people have discovered; you are a hostage to fortune. We've had all sorts of issues with this in the past, and really, it's only a distribution mechanism - and that's all. Our recommendation is to use external local storage for things like production assets - it's pretty cheap now and does not have any of the issues that other users have run into with remote storage.
