It’s official: Sound Forge lovers will be pleased to hear that Magix has committed to providing upgrades for the entire Sound Forge family of products. Currently under development by engineering teams in the US and Germany, new upgrades will start showing up this month with the entire line expected to be covered over the next 12 months.
Sound Forge Pro Mac 3 marks the beginning. It gives you support for 64-bit float/192k and 32 channels of audio. Editing functionality is included, along with loudness metering, professional filters and processing, plus the CD authoring capabilities Sound Forge is known for. iZotope plug-ins RX Elements and Ozone 7 Elements are included as well.
A new 64-bit version will arrive on August 8th including improved DSP algorithms for native audio effects, slice-oriented edit mode, VST3 compatibility, and enhanced accessibility. And after four years without a new version, Sound Forge Pro 12 is expected to roll out at the end of 2017.
“For years, the name Sound Forge has defined the industry standard for top-tier professional audio recording, editing, and mastering tools,” said Gary Rebholz from the Sound Forge team. “But we’re not satisfied with relying on our reputation, so our teams in Berlin and Madison, now join together to renew a commitment to carry on this unparalleled legacy. Audio pros and enthusiasts alike will continue to rely on Sound Forge for years to come.”
