Brand new: SOUND FORGE Pro

On May 15, 2017, we breathed new life into the SOUND FORGE family with the release of SOUND FORGE Pro Mac 3. It marked the official start of our expansion of the SOUND FORGE product family.

The following August, the next milestone was laid with the release of SOUND FORGE Audio Studio 12. Continuing with the course of development, SOUND FORGE Pro 12 is now available for Windows beginning on April 4, 2018.

SOUND FORGE Pro 12 provides users with a sophisticated virtual work environment for audio editing, restoration, mastering and recording. It’s the ideal complement for any studio and post-production workflow – allowing projects to be finalized using professional tools in just a few easy steps.

Learn more about the new features in the latest version below!

64-bit support

For the first time, SOUND FORGE Pro 12 is now compatible with 64-bit operating systems. It utilizes the PC’s processing power in an optimal way enabling the software to work faster than ever before. Latency issues for larger robust projects have been significantly reduced.

VST3 support

With this new expansion to the SOUND FORGE product family, full access to favorite plug-ins is provided. This enhances performance allowing users to benefit from dynamic input and deactivate unnecessary busses. In addition, lower CPU load ensures more efficient effect routing.

POW-r dithering algorithms

POW-r offers 3 commercial dithering algorithms. Each is optimized for a specific task: speech recordings, recordings with a lower dynamic range (e.g. rock), recordings with higher dynamic range (e.g. orchestral music). Just select the task and create the right sound aesthetic.

New effects

The bandwidth of effects from Sequoia has been expanded even further. DeClicker/DeCrackler, DeHisser and Wave Hammer 2.0, a multiband compressor, are all included.

Have a listen to the effects in the following audio samples here.

Bonus additions

Bonus features include DSD-Import/Export, 384 kHz, iZotope RX Elements, iZotope Ozone Elements. The toolbar icons also have a fresh new design. Learn more about these new highlights and sample audio for various effects on the overview page.

Important note regarding the Master & Repair Suite in SOUND FORGE Pro 11:

If a user already owns SOUND FORGE Pro 11, which includes the Master & Repair Suite by iZotope, it can still be used in the new version.
