Product Highlights

Pristine sound quality
Sound Forge Pro 10 software supports full-resolution 24-bit and 32-bit/64-bit float 192 kHz files for the ultimate in audio fidelity. Capture the subtle overtones and nuances of instruments, vocals, and effect changes.

Precise audio editing
Edit mono, stereo, and multichannel audio files (up to 32 channels) to the sample level in real time. Use familiar Windows commands to cut, copy, paste, mix, and crossfade audio. Drag audio between channels and work on one file while processing others in the background.

Powerful audio recording
Sound Forge Pro 10 software has a complete set of tools for recording audio. Record directly into your sound card or use the Record Timer to begin and end a session at a specific time and date. Alternatively, you can start recording when a certain audio threshold is reached with Threshold Record Triggering. You can also record and edit multichannel audio files as easily as stereo files.

Effects processing
Apply over 40 professional studio effects and processes including Normalize, EQ, Delay, Chorus, Volume, Dynamics, Noise Gate, Pitch Shift, Flange, and Vibrato, and more.

New--Zplane élastique Pro timestretch DirectX plug-in
Use the élastique timestretch and pitch shift plug-in for pristine audio quality. Choose from various stretching methods that are tailored to your source audio including Pro, Soloist, and Efficient modes. Monitor and adjust settings while previewing.

VST effect support
Native support of VST plug-ins, including parameter automation, expands on the number of effects you can apply to your audio, ultimately increasing your mastering flexibility.

Audio for video
Sound Forge Pro 10 software supports multiple video formats including AVI, WMV, and MPEG-1 and MPEG-2. Precisely synchronize audio and video frame by frame. Sound Forge Pro 10 software includes MPEG-2 templates for writing HDV-compliant files at 720p and 1080i resolutions and AVI templates using the CineForm CFHD codec for 720p and 1080i intermediate renders.

New--Event-based editing
Audio editing is more efficient and powerful with Sound Forge Pro 10 software. Quickly move and split events, create fades, apply ASR (attack/sustain/release) envelopes and crossfades within in a single data window for more precision. Event-based editing provides an easier way to edit edges and fades and is ideal for precise audio mastering, assembling sketches of a project or to lay out tracks for authoring disc-at-once CDs.

New--Musical instrument file processing
Sound Forge Pro 10 software opens, processes, and saves DLS, GigaStudio/GigaSampler, and SoundFont 2.0 musical instrument files, allowing you to add effects and processing to existing samples.

Noise Reduction audio restoration plug-ins
Easily restore audio from LPs, cassettes, CDs, and more. The Noise Reduction 2 collection of plug-ins contains Noise Reduction, Audio Restoration, Click and Crackle Removal, and Clipped Peak Restoration. Use these to fix common audio problems such as tape hiss, clicks, and pops, salvage damaged recordings, and give new life to your audio.

New--Integrated disc-at-once CD burning
Sound Forge Pro 10 software includes fully integrated disc-at-once (DAO) CD mastering. Generate Red Book compliant disc-at-once premasters of your music suitable for professional replication. Perform full PQ code editing, create live-style CDs, add CD text and metadata, and use high-resolution source audio with precise conversion to Red Book audio. Integrated disc-at-once CD burning results in time savings and provides a more efficient workflow when assembling CD projects.

Acoustic Mirror software plug-in
Apply different environments to your audio including bridges, churches, concert halls, modern and classic microphones, and more.

Spectrum analysis tools
View frequencies and overtones of different channels within an audio file. The Spectrum Analysis tool shows multiple graphs depending on how many channels are selected. Analyze and see the fundamental frequencies and overtones in your recordings. Monitor audio and effects changes in real time, take multiple snapshots, and overlay views to compare and match frequencies of one file to another.

New--iZotope 64-bit SRC (sample rate conversion)
Sound Forge Pro 10 software includes iZotope Sample Rate Conversion (SRC), which is a necessary process when converting material from one sampling rate (such as studio-quality 192 kHz) to another rate (such as CD-quality 44.1 kHz). iZotope SRC utilizes a hybrid low-pass filter design, resulting in pristine audio with less aliasing when resampling audio.

New--iZotope MBIT+ dither (bit-depth conversion)
The best-sounding audio requires the highest sample bit depth. Sound Forge Pro 10 software includes iZotope MBIT+ dither. MBIT+ employs psychoacoustic methods to distribute noise into less audible ranges resulting in an improved sound and smoother fades.

New--Interactive Tutorials
Spend less time learning and more time mastering using the new integrated tutorials in Sound Forge Pro 10 software. These tutorials provide walkthrough demonstrations of common features and functionality, including DAO CD burning, vinyl recording and restoration for easy analog to digital conversion, and more.

New--Includes Mastering Effects Bundle 2, powered by iZotope

1.0 out of 5 stars Great software sabotaged by horrible support March 5, 2013
By BoKu
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I've been using Sound Forge Pro for well over 15 years now, starting long before Sonic Foundry sold out to Sony. Back in the Foundry days, it was developed by real innovators and their customer service was first rate. As you would expect, that has changed drastically since it was acquired by a multinational corporation with way too many different products to properly attend to.

Here's the deal. It's been so many years since the latest version of Sound Forge Pro was released that there are now plenty of more current choices out there. Also, robust audio editing tools are being included in digital video programs and so forth, so stand alone audio editing software is probably becoming less and less relevant for most common applications. Nevertheless, I love Sound Forge because it does pretty much anything I would ever want to do with audio. Even though competing products have been recommended to me by colleagues whose opinions I value, I have stayed with SF because it suits my needs and I saw no point in paying for and learning new software.

Here is what prompted this review. Ever since Sonic Foundry was acquired by Sony, the licensing process has become progressively more stringent. I can't blame them for wanting to protect their intellectual property, but in the process they have made us customers jump through more and more hoops to use products we paid a lot of money for. Hoops that now seem to be turning into walls.

If you have to reinstall Sound Forge, you will need to go through the registration process again, but having the serial number is not enough, as you also have to get someone to send you a new activation code. No matter what they might say, telephone support is non-existent, period.

Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I opted for Sony's Sound Forge 10 when I upgraded operating systems from XP to Windows 7. My two former favorites, Cool Edit Pro and Adobe's Audition, don't play particularly friendly with Windows 7, especially the 64 bit version. To my knowledge, Cool Edit Pro does not work at all, and a search online of various forums dedicated to Audition make it clear that many people are searching for workarounds to get it to install on Windows 7 machines. Some are successful. Other people, presumably due to hardware differences, are unable to get Audition installed at all.

Rather than fight this battle, I determined I would find something that was compatible with Windows 7 without having to rely on workarounds. Enter Sony Sound Forge 10.

Installation was picture perfect. Couldn't have been simpler. The tools included are very comparable to Audition or Cool Edit. My first beef, however, was that they are not natively grouped into one collective area with an intuitive organization, the way other programs have their tools arranged. You can go through a customization process to create groups of tools, but be aware, you do have to take the time to create your groups. You won't just be able to install the software and have everything intuitively where you want it to be right out of the box. For someone new to audio editing, who has not already become accustomed to other programs like Audition, this might not be a big deal. But if you're coming from other, higher end tools, count on spending some time setting things up before you can get down to productive work.

Another small issue I had was that other products tend to have more pre-configured options on tools.

5.0 out of 5 stars Converting cassettes to CD using Sound Forge February 28, 2010
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I am using Sony Sound Forge in conjunction with a Sony RK-G136 Audio Cable and a Sony Walkman WM-FX290W to convert old cassette tapes to CDs by connecting the Walkman to my laptop.

Sound Forge makes it very easy for me to modify and improve the captured audio. You can easily change volume, equalize volume, add fades, remove areas, cut and paste portions of the audio etc. In addition, you can remove background noises such as swishes, and rumble with the built in noise reduction software. If you need to remove addition background noises then let me recommend Bias Sound Soap. This product is amazing when it comes to removing unwanted noise or sounds. I have used it to eliminate backgrounds voices which normally is nearly impossible.

Short Guide to converting a cassette tape to a CD.

First, plug in the RK-G136 cable into the headphone port on the Walkman, and the audio input port on your computer. Next, startup Sound Forge, and click on record and press play on the Walkman. Once you have captured the tape you can eliminate the long lead in by highlighting these areas and pressing delete. Now you can find an area on your audio that has noise and either use Sound Forge noise reduction or Bias Sound Soap to learn this noise and eliminate it throughout your audio. Finally, you are now ready to export your audio to a CD.

With these two software programs you can easily import, edit, cleanup and export clear, high quality audio to a CD in just a few minutes. These two products ability at removing rumble, swishing sounds, background noise, and talking is remarkable.

If you want to cleanup old cassette tapes these four products are indispensable.
