Sony formally releases Sound Forge Pro Mac audio editor

updated 04:33 am EDT, Sat September 8, 2012

Custom-made for Mac, includes suite of plug-ins

Professional audio editing software Sound Forge Pro has officially come to the Mac, following a campaign of teases and a YouTube trailer confirming its arrival. Sony says it has "rethought, reshaped and recreated" the program, which has a following in the Windows arena, with its custom-made Mac version. Sound Forge Pro Mac can record up to 32 channels at 64-bit, 192kHz resolution, edit using the new Mac user interface or work within the legacy event-based system, and includes a number of iZotope plug-ins.

Sound Forge offers dedicated viewing panels for recording, monitoring, editing, plug-in processing and content browsing, but users can opt to show only those panels needed for a particular editing task. The program can produce broadcast-ready audio masters, and features pro-level signal and effects mastering -- including iZotope's Mastering Effects Bundle and a new Plug-in Chainer to automate sophisticated processing tasks.

In addition to the mastering effects, iZotope also provides a 64-bit sample rate conversion and MBIT+ bit depth conversion, along with three exclusive tools: a declicker, denoiser and declipper included in the program. Also included is a time-stretching and pitch-shifting plug-in from Zplan called Elastique Pro. The program additionally supports AU and VST plug-ins.

Sound Forge Pro for Mac will cost $300. System requirements have not yet been revealed, but the program is expected to be Intel-only.
