Berlin, Germany (May 16, 2017)–Last year, pro audio software developer MAGIX Software GmbH acquired the Sound Forge digital audio editing product line, alongside other video and audio products, from Sony Pictures Digital. Subsequently MAGIX has reportedly invested substantial R&D into the line, resulting in new Sound Forge platform upgrades to be made available worldwide this month as well as more throughout 2017.
The enhancements begin in Sound Forge Pro MAC 3, MAGIX’s Mac OS-ready audio processing and mastering suite supporting up to 32 channels of 64-bit/192 kHz high-resolution audio. Features include sample-accurate editing, enhanced pro-grade filters and processing and “disc-at-once” Red Book Standard audio CD authoring. The latest Version 3 software also adds loudness metering and Plug-ins RX Elements and Ozone 7 Elements from collaborating software manufacturer iZotope.
In early August, a new 64-bit version of Sound Forge Audio Studio will be available. Features will include updated DSP-algorithms for native audio effects, slice-oriented edit mode—providing a new way to edit wave files—VST3 compatibility, and more.
Finally, following four years with no version updates, Sound Forge Pro 12 is slated for availability at the end of 2017. Feature-based details are still materializing, according to the company, but it is noted that “teams in both Berlin, Germany and Madison, Wisconsin [MAGIX's US headquarters] have set a goal to raise the bar for audio editing and mastering in version 12.”
The latest version of Sound Forge Pro MAC 3 is now available online for $299.
