User Interface

Editor Panels
  • Two discrete audio editor panels, each with their own overview bars, file tabs, and transport controls
  • View the panels stacked or side-by-side, and drag tabbed files between them for editing

  • Fast, sample-accurate access to numerous locations within audio files, and easy ways to define, label, edit, and export regions
  • Drop and name markers, create regions from selections, subdivide regions, loop region playback, and fine tune selections
  • Access the Regions List tool for list-based auditioning and fine tuning

Event-Based Editing
  • Allows you to divide a sound file into any number of independent sections that can be arranged and rearranged on the timeline
  • Manually or automatically create events, then move, split, copy and paste, fade, crossfade, and slip/trim event contents to achieve complex edits
  • Engage legacy Sound Forge event-based editing for effortless sequencing of audio on the timeline

Pencil Mode
  • Zoom in, enable Pencil Mode, and easily make microscopic waveform alterations
  • Great for fixing digital glitches and other unwanted artifacts

Time Formats
  • Perform sample-accurate audio file editing in a wide range of industry-standard time formats

Summary Information, File Properties, Statistics Tools
  • Easily view, edit, and apply file metadata
  • The Summary Information tool displays file metadata - select a field and enter the information of your choice
  • The File Properties and Statistics tools display all the important attributes of your sound files and the selections within them
Processing Power

  • Accomplish standard peak level normalization, or modify an audio file's dynamics directly using average RMS level normalization - great for matching the apparent loudness of different recordings

Zplane élastique Timestretch
  • Time-stretching engine that offers high quality, making stretching artifacts obsolete
  • Based on state-of-the-art psychoacoustic models and signal-processing theory, the result is stable timing, inter-channel phase coherence, and sample-accurate stretching
  • Achieve formant-preserving pitch shifting that avoids the pitfalls that can occur when pitching up or down
  • Choose from various stretching methods that are tailored to your source audio, including Pro, Soloist, and Efficient modes
  • Monitor and adjust settings while previewing

  • Synthesis plug-in generates basic waveforms and noise

Channel Converter
  • Change the number of channels in an audio file, reverse the channels of a stereo file or intermix the channels of a multichannel file to create panning scenarios

iZotope 64-bit SRC (Sample Rate Conversion)
  • Necessary process when converting material from one sampling rate (such as 192 kHz) to another rate (such as 44.1 kHz)
  • Protects against the loss of data, aliasing, noise, and unwanted ringing artifacts, utilizing a hybrid low-pass filter along with ringing control

  • Precise control over audio heads and tails with five different fade types

Other Processors
  • Mute, reverse, volume, mix
  • Mix clipboard contents into a sound file, applying custom crossfades and adjusting both source and destination volume levels along the way

iZotope MBIT+ Dither (Bit Depth Conversion)
  • Dither 24-bit or higher audio tracks to 16-bit without losing quality or introducing undesirable quantization distortion
  • Employs psychoacoustic methods to distribute the noise into less audible ranges, resulting in improved sound and smoother fades
  • Specifically designed for musical program material - MBIT+ models use real music and not test tones, resulting in musical and sonically pleasing processing

Invert / Flip
  • Reverse the phase of sound files
Restore and Repair

  • Identifies and removes clicks, pops and digital impulse noises.
  • Set the fader to the sensitivity level you need, then count the number of clicks that are identified and repaired over time as your audio file plays

  • Easily perform noiseprint-based noise reduction
  • Click the Learn button while playing a random sample of unwanted noise contained in the target file and the processor does the rest, applying a customized noise-reduction process across the entire selection

  • Reconstructs peaks damaged by clipping at either the analog or digital stage
  • Use the level histogram to pinpoint where the damage starts
  • Set the Clipping Threshold to determine where peak re-synthesis will begin
Mastering Audio

Mastering EQ
  • Six-band parametric equalizer featuring four bell filters, a high shelving filter, and a low shelving filter
  • Incorporates digital precision and analog modeling, as well as real-time spectrum analysis for essential visual feedback while adjusting parameters

Multiband Compressor
  • Adds warmth and fullness to mixes
  • Allows independent control over the dynamics of four frequency bands, and adjustable crossover points let you fine tune the range of each band
  • Real-time spectrum analyzer shows each frequency band in its own color, in addition to the combined spectrum of all bands

  • Mastering Imager
  • Precisely adjust the stereo width and focus of your master
  • Work with up to four frequency bands for independent control over stereo width by frequency
  • Visualize the stereo image with a phase/channel meter display that highlights imaging, phase and potential canceling problems

  • Mastering Reverb
  • Reverb designed to add depth to dull mixes and smooth over acoustic imperfections
  • Features two processing algorithms, plate and room, and a real-time spectrum analyzer

  • Mastering Limiter
  • Create louder and fuller masters by limiting the dynamic range and boosting the perceived overall level of the mix
  • IRC (Intelligent Release Control) lets you dial in both aggressive and transparent limiting, and a histogram meter helps you fine tune the effect for the best results

  • Harmonic Exciter
  • Add analog character to your masters
  • With a selection of Harmonic Exciter modes, you can easily add tube or tape saturation, accentuate even harmonics, and add punch or sparkle to your project
  • Multiband and mid/side modes give you a huge range of sonic possibilities
  • Processes iZotope 64-bit SRC (sample rate conversion)
