With various audio formats being used, the POW-r dithering insures that I get the best quality possible. It's absolutely incredible."

"I started beta testing audio software for a company called Sonic Foundry, later bought by SONY and now owned by MAGIX. From the beginning SOUND FORGE was the most versatile & complete audio editing software available. SOUND FORGE Pro 12 continues this great tradition, and has become indispensable for any serious audio project."

“I make primarily electronic music for games, and the tracks - when exported - have to loop seamlessly. What DAW I use to create music has changed over the years, but SOUND FORGE has remained the one and only piece of software I use to check looping points and edit my masters. I've been using SOUND FORGE practically daily since 2000.”
