Delay and reverb effects

coreFX Delay

Create echoes with the Delay. The simple delay effect is based on analog circuits and produces time-delayed copies of the original input signal to create the echo effect.

coreFX Chorus

For a fuller sound, Chorus produces a time-delayed duplicate of the audio signal with a slight pitch difference. A perceptible doubling and beating effect is created.

coreFX Flanger

The Flanger creates a dynamic, colder sound. By superimposing the original signal and its time-delayed copies, sweeping effects are created for the classic 'wandering' sound.

Acoustic Mirror™

Advanced reverb technology integrates the acoustic properties of a specific environment or location into your audio file. With this technology, you can also simulate the signal behavior of vintage audio devices.

Cleaning effects

DeHisser

The DeHisser eliminates uniform white noise typically generated by microphones, preamps or transformers. Unlike noise reduction, no distortion selection is required.

DeClicker / DeCrackler

DeClicker removes individual clicks and pops that are present in audio files, typically from old vinyl recordings. DeCrackler is designed to remove continuous and low noise from your files.

DeClipper

DeClipper repairs clipping artifacts that occur when A/D converters are pushed too hard or the tape is over saturated. It's useful for concerts or interviews that can't be re-recorded.

iZotope RX 7 Elements

Plug-in interfaces

New VST engine

New VST engine

SOUND FORGE Pro's VST2/3 engine has been further developed to offer greater stability and speed when scanning and using plug-ins. The dialog between the VST host and the effect plug-ins is now more efficient, allowing you to work faster and more accurately.

ARA2 support

ARA2 support

The ARA2 interface extension makes the exchange of information between SOUND FORGE Pro and the plug-ins even more extensive, so increases the overall flexibility and speed. This allows the more efficient use of plug-in audio data and real-time editing to be performed.

POW-R Dithering Algorithms

POW-R Dithering Algorithms

SOUND FORGE Pro contains POW-r dithering. This consists of a set of three dithering and noise shaping algorithms, each tailored to a specific type of audio recording: spoken word, music with a limited dynamic range, and music with a large dynamic range.

Type 1

Type 1 has the flattest frequency spectrum in the audible frequency range, and is ideal for less stereophonically complex material such as solo instruments and vocals.

Type 2

Type 2 has a psychoacoustically optimized low-order noise shaping curve, and is recommended for audio material with higher stereophonic complexity.

Type 3

Type 3 has a psychoacoustically optimized high-order noise shaping curve, and is recommended to be used in full-spectrum stereo field audio material.

DDP export

DDP export

Export using Disc Description Protocol Master and be ready to press your CDs. DDP masters are resistant to generational loss due to duplication and can be easily archived. The digital data is provided with a checksum and passed on to the pressing plant to ensure error-free reproduction of audio CDs.

Disc-at-once CD burning

Disc-at-once CD burning

Disc-at-once CD burning is used when creating a master disc to be sent to a CD manufacturer for mass duplication. Multiple audio tracks are written to the disc. You can also add track markers to a single recording of a live set and burn a complete Redbook standard audio CD.

Visualizations
Sound analysis in SOUND FORGE Pro

SOUND FORGE Pro 13 lets you analyze your sounds with high-quality audio visualization tools. Based on audio data, your music, speech or sounds are displayed graphically and dynamically.

Peak Meter V2

Now you can measure peak levels of your audio signal reliably and correctly.

The Peak Meter V2 shows you the precise, current level of an audio signal.

Voice Activity Detection using artificial intelligence

The 'sensAI SINGING VAD' from audEERING is a modern tool which uses artificial intelligence technology to detect lead vocals and choruses in music, marking any passages containing vocal lines.

This provides you with a quick overview of complex mixing projects.

Phase Scope and mono-compatibility metering

The Phase Scope helps you to find the phase cancellation between the channels in the audio file. Thanks to the Correlation Level Meter, you can detect and eliminate mono-compatibility limitations between channels.

CALM-targeted metering

CALM-standard metering allows high-precision volume measurement, and gives you a clear visual indication of the dynamic range of your audio signal. The Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation Act (CALM) regulates the overall volume during commercial breaks.

Multichannel-capable spectrum analysis

The multi-channel capable spectral analysis shows several graphs that detail the fundamental frequencies and harmonics in your recordings. Monitor audio and effect changes and take multiple snapshots – then use the overlay views to compare and adjust frequencies.

Clipped peak detection and marking

Clipped peak detection and marking automatically scans audio files and marks any clipping. This allows you to see all clipping points at a glance, and remove them with the DeClipper included in SOUND FORGE Pro 13.
