Sound Forge Pro 13 serves up new GUI, VST engine and effects, plus ARA2 support.

Berlin, Germany (April 15, 2019)—Magix has released Sound Forge Pro version 13, which sports a new user interface, a new VST engine, new effects and more.

Sound Forge Pro 13 has a fully-customizable new interface that can be personalized to fit individual preferences and workflows. The UI can be adjusted in four color levels – White, Light, Medium and Dark – depending on differing environmental and lighting conditions. Based around an icon design, the interface shows all important audio editing features at once.

Meanwhile, the enhanced VST2/3 engine and ARA2 interface extension reportedly offer greater stability and speed when using plug-ins, and allow users to work faster and more precisely.

A number of audio visualization tools have been added as well, helping to analyze music, speech and sounds, and display them both graphically and dynamically. The new Peak Meter V2 allows peak level measurement of digital audio signals according to international industry standards, and shows the current level of an audio signal in real time.

New effects and plug-ins for mastering and cleaning audio files include the addition of iZotope Ozone 8 Elements and RX 7 Elements plug-ins. Also new are coreFX mastering effects (2-Point Compressor, Limiter, Expander, Compressor and Gate) and coreFX delay effects (Delay, Chrorus and Flanger).

The new edition is available for purchase ($399) or via subscription ($9.99/month).
