Sony to bring Sound Forge Pro to Mac

updated 04:00 pm EDT, Wed August 22, 2012

May complement Apple's own Logic Pro on Mac App Store

Following a number of teases and hints, Sony has confirmed that it will soon release its Sound Forge Pro audio editing software on the Mac. A video posted by Sony on YouTube under the name "FinallyOnMac" touts the program, which has won a wide following in its Windows version. The short promotional video says the program has been "rethought, reshaped, recreated" for the Mac.

Glimpses in the video suggest that the program will take advantage of both native OS X abilities and style, marking a departure from the look of the PC edition. The ads says the program offers a "refined" interface and unparalleled processing tools. It directs to a website, finallyonthemac.com, that at present only offers the video itself.

The program may find its niche as an audio editor that will complement Apple's own Logic Pro 9, which sells for about half the price of the Windows version. Whether Sony will opt to lower the price of Sound Forge and put the program on the download-only Mac App Store remains to be seen, as no formal release date has yet been announced.

    First and foremost,
    Logic Pro 9 is in no way a competition for Sony Sound Forge. Logic is a sequencer, Sound Forge is an audio editor. Different tasks.
    For the rest, I hope Sony will release the Sound Forge for Mac as Steinberg did with Wavelab and especially after Bias Peak went down the river.

    Ah - has the original article been edited to now read "complement", rather than "compete with"?

    Heh.
