SOUND FORGE Pro 17 Suite:
The complete package for professionals

 

Highlights in the Suite – more possibilities for audio editing

This complete package for recording, editing and processing audio files includes various powerful plug-ins from MAGIX and renowned partners and sets a new standard in the audio world.

Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 10

The unmixing potential offered by Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 10 has now been radically expanded. More instruments can now be recorded, including guitar tracks and drum hits. Split multiple voices into separate layers, unmix multichannel audio into stems, select time ranges, and apply a variety of new unmixing processes that are custom-made for your goals.

Artificial intelligence with sensory integration.

Artificial intelligence with sensory integration.

SpectraLayers allows you to both see the spectrum of your audio as well as touch, shape, and design it. Enjoy an even faster path to achieving perfect audio thanks to support for artificial intelligence that recognizes musical patterns and performs operations.

The ideal basis for AI-assisted processing

The ideal basis for AI-assisted processing

Manual selection tools let you make every type of edit from rough changes with a broad brush to microscopic tweaks. AI-powered processes make SpectraLayers even more accurate and versatile, so you can achieve optimal results faster than ever before.

From scientific work to free improvisation

From scientific work to free improvisation

Use the AI's speed and precision to split a sample into layers and mix them as desired. Separate tracks into stems and stems into individual components entirely automatically. Identify, isolate, and process transients, tones, and noises in extracted instruments. Get detailed and shapeable sound with surgical precision thanks to SpectraLayers.

Repair and restore

Repair and restore

Manually or fully automatically use AI-powered tools to: Find and remove errors or unwanted noise, reduce hiss, repair clips, remove clicks, tame transients, and more. Work quickly and accurately to achieve stunning results you never thought possible.

Celemony Melodyne essential

Celemony Melodyne 5.3 essential

Melodyne provides you with unparalleled access to all the musical details in your recordings and samples - note by note.

This is made possible by sophisticated analysis that deeply examines your recordings and samples to identify and understand the musical relationships within them: The individual notes and their properties, the scales and chords used, timing, tempo, and sound. And then, all of it can be edited intuitively with Melodyne.

Analogue Modelling Suite

Analogue Modelling Suite

The Analogue Modelling Suite Plus includes four high-quality effects plug-ins that model analog audio tools which simply can't be left out of any mastering process.

This includes a high-quality analog compressor (am-track) with optional simulation of studio tape machine saturation effects, a transient designer (am-pulse) for influencing the signal envelope of percussive audio material, a tube pre-amp/channel strip (am-phibia), plus a mastering dynamics tool (am|munition) with compressor, limiter, clipper and M/S editing.

Compressor with M/S editing: am|munition

Compressor with M/S editing: am|munition

The VST plugin am|munition is an extremely versatile dynamics tool for editing signal groups or sum signals, making it especially useful for mastering. It contains separate units such as compression, filtering, side-chain, limiter and clipper. You can also edit mid and side signals separately in M/S mode. All modules and parameters are optimized for compressing program material without disturbing artifacts, loudness gain, and analog control mode with individual sound signature.

Transient designer: am|pulse

Transient designer: am|pulse

The transient designer has been developed specifically for detailed editing of percussive and dynamic signals. It's particularly suitable for optimizing attack and sustain parameters for drum or string parts. Among its other optimization mechanisms, am|pulse boasts saturation control and mix function due to its harmonic control mode.

Tape simulation: am|track

Tape simulation: am|track

This fantastic combination of analog compressor and tape simulation is mainly suited to editing individual channels or sub-group signals. am-track features two completely different compressors, each with its own independent controls and sound characteristics. As well as the VCA mode, which covers the typical sound of modern VCA compressors, there's the Vintage mode, which uses an FET (field-effect transistor) element to create a more aggressive sound. In addition, the tape selection feature enables a tape saturation effect to be imitated, which catches soft transients and sends them through the "tape".

Tube amp: am|phibia

Tube amp: am|phibia

This plug-in is particularly good for editing recordings of vocals and acoustic instruments. am|phibia is a combination of a tube preamp and channel strip that combines a high-quality opto compressor with a pre and post filter. It offers a whole new range of options for sound design.

essentialFX Suite

essentialFX Suite

The essentialFX Suite is a collection of 11 first-class effect plug-ins and is suited for all every day studio applications. In addition to high-quality algorithms, great importance was placed on practical icons for the individual parameters and the effectiveness of the function.

The uniform operation concept, combined with low resources demands for top quality production, makes the essentialFX suite a collection of high-quality audio tools for all-around tasks.

eFX Gate

Stereo delay with individually adjustable delays for both channels, as well as a tempo sync feature.

Vandal

Vandal

Vandal is a virtual guitar and bass amplifier with impressive effects that provides the characteristic sound and feel of a real hardware setup with the advantages of a software application – all for you to enjoy on your computer!

It lets you easily simulate any kind of guitar effect in a realistic way.

VariVerb II

VariVerb II

VariVerb II (short for: VARIable reVERB) is a high-quality reverb plug-in that runs on an algorithmic basis.

It provides a series of rooms, halls, reverb plates, spring reverb modules, and so-called non-linear effects, which can be edited comprehensively and easily.

Sound design for drums, vocals and guitars

VariVerb II offers more depth and more texture for your audio. The huge range of presets for drums, vocals and guitars in this plug-in are based on a variety of algorithms and can be used not just for making improvements, but as the starting point for complex sound design.

Precisely calculated reflection pattern

Use VariVerb II to create reverb based on complex reflection pattern and various software models rather than on the basis of impulse responses. Create various effects with adjustable parameters such as room, hall, plate, spring modules, and non-linear reverb, all based on algorithmic calculations.

Vintage Effects Suite

Vintage Effects Suite

The Vintage Effects Suite expands the palette of effects with a Chorus/Flanger, a delay, and a filter plug-in, CORVEX, ECOX and FILTOX, all of which are based on the same simple operating principle and will wow you with their incredibly exciting effect sounds.

ECOX

ECOX

Ecox is a inspiring plug-in that emulates realistic tape echo sounds. It even authentically reproduces system-related problems found in the analog models, such as synchronization fluctuations, tracking fluctuations, and loss of high-frequency response with every feedback.

FILTOX

FILTOX

Control the frequency response of a modulation source with the Filtox plug-in, which offers a whole new range of creative possibilities for distorting synth sounds (e.g. filter sweeps on pads) or drum loops.

CORVEX

CORVEX

Corvex creates an elegant tapestry of sound with analog-style chorus and flanger effects. Lend your instruments acoustic depth and make them sound much fuller, or create the illusion that an object is multi-layered.
