Magix announces the availability of the latest update to Sound Forge Audio Studio.
Version 12 takes Sound Forge Audio Studio to a whole new level supplying everything you need to record, edit, enhance, and deliver high-resolution audio. Digitize, repair, and restore LP records and tapes, create podcasts, master audio, burn CDs, and render to all the popular audio formats for streaming on the web or playback on portable media players.
Built on a 64-bit platform to supply more editing power, more processing power, and a more powerful workflow. The updated and redesigned recording window offers easy access to all the settings and controls you need to achieve the perfect high-resolution recording.
An easy and fast way to assemble tracks for a CD. Select a file or group of files to append and they are automatically added to the project with CD track markers.
Non-destructive editing offers Slice Edit to tweak edits even after the cut. Soft Cut creates automatic, user-adjustable crossfades with each edit to guarantee smooth transitions between cuts with no pops or clicks.
Spectral cleaning performs frequency-based noise removal. Visually identify frequencies of an offending noise such as a chair squeak or cough in recordings, then use the spectral cleaning tool to select and remove the frequencies that make up those sounds.
The new workflow makes it easy to record vinyl LPs and tapes, remove crackle, pops, and hiss and burn to an audio CD or burn a set of audio files to a data CD or DVD in popular formats such as MP3, WMA, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, or AAC.
Visualization window presents several ways to analyze and track audio output including peak meters, phase oscilloscope, correlation meter, direction meter, spectroscope, spectrogram, bit meter, oscilloscope, and tuner.
Includes iZotope’s Ozone Elements 7 mastering plugin with a set of 75 professionally crafted presets, along with macro controls to fine tune the EQ and compression to achieve full, rich, and loud final masters.
Repair and restoration tools include DeClicker/DeCrackler to automatically detect and remove clicks and crackle from vinyl recordings or other noisy environments. DeClipper restores and recovers analog or digital material with clipping artifacts. DeEsser removes sibilance with presets for male and female vocals. DeHisser clean up background hiss with presets for hiss behind vocals, cassette tape hiss, analog tape hiss, and more. DeNoiser reduces unwanted steady-state noise like that created by air-conditioning, equipment hum, and amplifier hiss.
“Throughout the development cycle of this new version of Sound Forge Audio Studio, the engineering team has kept their focus on the phrase ‘Define the edge‘,” says Gary Rebholz from Sound Forge. “Our goal: take the existing audio production powerhouse to the next level with cutting-edge tools and processes. We think you’re going to love Sound Forge Audio Studio 12.”
