    I have a professional grade recording mic, and have tried to use Adobe Audition software. The truth of the matter is I'm just not versed in mixing enough to figure out complex software like that.

    I just want to record vocals, (with an accompaniment track) the problem when I use the Adobe Audition is that I end up either overpowering the music, or the music overpowers me. I have a very powerful voice, and when I record high notes it tends to sound muffled and choppy because it's so much louder than the other notes.

    I'm really wanting a software that will auto-adjust itself. (Similar to Fire for the iPhone), I'm certain if they've created iPhone apps that do this, there must be a software somewhere to help me!

    I have adjusted every possible level I can find on Audition. I either end up WAY too loud on high notes, and just right on regular notes, Or WAY too quiet on regular notes, and just right on high notes.

    I honestly do not see myself having any success with Audition, so I'm really looking for another software. Please don't recommend suggestions to fix Audition, I have tried for 2 years using this software, and if it makes me ignorant, fine, but I just don't get it.

    Thank you so much!

    You need a compressor. ie: an automatic volume controller.

    Changing to a different DAW will not help: you will still need a compressor.

    I'm prepared to bet Audition includes a compressor plug-in..?

    There's nothing special about FiRe for iPhone. AGC circuits have been around for a long time. You can do the same thing in just about any recording software, including Audition. If you can't figure out how to do it in one program you probably won't have any better luck with another program. You will need to insert some sort of compressor plugin on your vocal track and learn how to manipulate the parameters.
