SOUND FORGE PRO 10 LAUNCHES WITH TOOLS FOR EDITING & MASTERING
Sound Forge Pro 10 has customizable window layouts, the ability to edit metadata, and interactive tutorials for learning new features as well as common ones. Version 10 allows users to open, process and save musical instrument files (.DLS, .SF2, .GIG). Zplane's Elastique Pro Timestretch DirectX plug-in is included, allowing users to time- stretch and pitch-shift elements.
The iZotope 64-bit SRC sample rate converter uses a hybrid low pass filter design, resulting in pristine audio with less aliasing when converting material from one sample rate to another. The iZotope MBIT+ dither employs psychoacoustic methods to distribute noise into less audible ranges, resulting in improved audio and smoother fades when converting the bit rates of audio files.
An iZotope effects bundle is also included, featuring six pro plug-ins designed for mastering and enhancing audio production. These plug-ins include: Mastering EQ, Mastering Reverb, Multiband Compressor, Mastering Limiter, Stereo Imager, and Harmonic Exciter.
Sound Forge Pro 10 is priced at $499.
