JK Swopes

"SOUND FORGE Audio Studio 12 is a super powerful audio editing and restoration tool. I love the visualization view that lets me see actual meters to represent the frequencies in the audio for quick eq decisions. Also, the audio restoration tools are some of the most effective and intuitive tools I've ever come across. The DeNoiser works great for cleaning up imperfect audio and removing background noise from vocal recordings in my videos. This has definitely become a staple in my overall editing process."
