So recently I've been making a short typography video. It's a short promotion of our school band.
The thing is, I am used to using Aegisub, and having less than a month of After Effects experience I'm still pretty much annoyed with the waveform view. Using waveform I need to play it again and again to achieve that perfect sync- spectrogram makes it so much easier to do things since it tells me visually what instruments come in at what parts.
Is there some sort of spectrogram feature in After Effects?

I need to read more closely. Sorry about that.
AE does not have a similar spectral view. It only has a crummy-looking waveform view. But you need to know that AE really sucks at audio, whereas Audition's great at it.
Even so, people have been animating to audio in AE for years by scrubbing audio and using markers to identify key places in the audio. It may not be your favorite way of doing it, but it does work.
Your alternatives to scrubbing and marking are AE's Convert Audio To Keyframes and a third-party plugin you buy, Trapcode Sound Keys. If you want things to happen in AE at specific times and not on a rhythmic basis, these are likely not to do the trick for you.
