The Audio Master Suite 2 from Sony is a Windows-based software bundle featuring two advanced waveform and spectral editing applications, each with its own strengths that seamlessly integrate with one another. Whether the application is mixing, mastering, repair and restoration, sound design, forensics, or analysis, Sound Forge Pro 11 and SpectraLayers Pro 3 provide a unified environment that serves to enhance creative audio design.

Additionally, the bundle includes Sony CD Architect 5.2 mastering software for professional CD creation. Also included are twenty-five production music tracks from the Sony Sound Series that can be freely chosen from the entire library and download either all at once or singly. Royalty free music beds are available in many genres including ambient/cinematic, country, electronica, jazz, news, pop, rock, urban, and world.

  • SpectraLayers Pro 3 - Advanced Audio Spectrum Editor (Boxed)

    SpectraLayers Pro 3 from Sony is an advanced spectrum editor that allows for working with the individual sounds in an audio file as if they were objects in a photograph. Using graphic representation, users can make detailed repairs with precise tools, move sounds around, reduce noise, increase clarity, or get totally creative and transform a sound file into something new and different.

    For audio mastering engineers the program provides the tools for making small fixes to radical, project-wide transformations and to also repair, filter, and remix audio. Sound designers and remix artists are able to isolate individual sounds in an audio file, selecting material by frequency, and constructing new music directly on the spectral graph. Audio archivists can make old recordings sound their best.

    And for the audio-for-video producer the software provides the tools needed to eliminate unwanted noise with extreme precision, apply bandwidth-limited noiseprints across entire files, or perform surgical cuts to remove isolated sonic events. Forensic specialists can pull out target sounds for analysis, while music and dialog extraction can be performed for replacement or rights management purposes.

    Other features of the software include Spectral Casting/Spectral Molding, a process that uses the frequency spectrum of one layer as a cast or mold for carving an impression directly into the spectrum of a second layer. Pitch correction is also possible, and interoperability with Sound Forge Pro 11 and Sound Forge Pro Mac 2 is seamless.

  • CD Architect 5.2 - CD Mastering Software

    CD Architect 5.2 software from Sony Media Software produces professional audio CDs to Red Book specification. Version 5.2 includes CD text reading and writing and updated drive support. Perform full PQ code editing, trim events from full-length media and add as new tracks, import regions from Sound Forge software as tracks, master audio by applying over twenty real-time DirectX effects to events and the master output, and perform disc-at-once CD burning.

    CD Architect software provides the precise audio CD mastering and burning tools. Arrange your CD Architect project using simple drag-and-drop operations. Produce complex cross fades and DJ-style mega mixes. Generate multiple takes of a song to use in your project before burning. Create live-style CDs with audio in the time between tracks, apply volume envelopes and event ASR envelopes - even create hidden tracks. CD Architect software supports a long list of drives, including many FireWire and USB devices.
