Anonymous teaser campaign launches
Sony's Sound Forge audio production software could becoming to the Mac in the near future, notes MacRumors. The basis for the claim is an anonymous website, finallyonthemac.com, hosting a YouTube video which promises a "Countdown to a revolution." Scenes in the video depict various music-related images, as well as waveform graphics, and even iron forging. The fonts and general style of the website are also similar to standard Sony marketing.
The site indicates that at least eight more videos are coming. What the Mac app might feature and when it might ship are unmentioned, but the first video uses slogans such as "Rethought. Reshaped. Recreated," and "Reinvented for the Mac."
Sony has largely ignored the Mac in terms of professional software. Its Vegas video editing suites are conspicuously absent, for instance, as are its ACID audio tools. This may be because of Sony's VAIO line of desktops and notebooks, which targeting the Mac might theoretically detract from.
