New Sound Forge Pro 10 Feature Highlights

Key new features in Sound Forge Pro 10 include:

Event-based editing

Event-based editing is ideal for precise audio mastering, assembling

project sketches, or laying out tracks for authoring disc-at-once CDs.

In Sound Forge 10, users can quickly move, split, slip, and trim

events, create fades, apply ASR envelopes and crossfades within in a

single data window for more precise audio control.

Integrated Disc-at-Once (DAO) CD burning

Integrated disc-at-once CD burning results in time savings and

provides a more efficient workflow when generating Red Book compliant

disc-at-once premasters of 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.

Zplane �lastique Pro Timestretch DirectX� plug-in

The �lastique time stretch and pitch shift plug-in provides better

sounding audio when processing audio files. Users can also monitor and

adjust settings while previewing in real-time, and select from various

stretching methods that are tailored to their source audio including

Pro, Soloist, and Efficient modes.

iZotope 64-bit SRC (sample rate conversion) and MBIT+ dither

(bit-depth conversion)

The iZotope 64-bit SRC utilizes a hybrid low pass filter design,

resulting in pristine audio with less aliasing converting material

from one sampling rate to another. The iZotope MBIT+ dither employs

psychoacoustic methods to distribute noise into less audible ranges,

resulting in improved audio and smoother fades when converting the bit

rates of audio files.

Musical instrument file processing (.DLS, .SF2, .GIG)

Sound Forge Pro 10 software opens, processes, and saves DLS,

GigaStudio/GigaSampler, and SoundFont 2.0 musical instrument files.

Users can view bank, instrument, note range, and sample information.

Effects and processes can easily be added directly to samples.

Customizable window layouts

Customizable window layouts are designed to maximize productivity by

allowing users to create and save multiple unique interface layout

configurations for single and dual monitor systems, and recall a

window layout for specific editing tasks such as audio editing, CD

layout, and multichannel file editing.

Mastering Effects Bundle 2 powered by iZotope™

The powerful bundle of audio mastering tools included with Sound

Forge 10 is valued at over $200 and includes six professional plug-ins

to expertly master and enhance audio production: Mastering EQ,

Mastering Reverb, Multiband Compressor, Mastering Limiter, Stereo

Imager, and Harmonic Exciter.

Interactive tutorials

Sony Creative Software’s unique interactive tutorials provide

walkthrough demonstrations of common features and functionality,

including DAO CD burning, vinyl recording and restoration in order to

help users spend less time learning and more time editing and

mastering audio projects.
