Sound Forge Pro 11 from MAGIX Entertainment is a one-stop software solution for creating and delivering master audio content for any purpose. Record audio quickly on a stable platform, address audio processing tasks with precision, and render master files with ease. New features include one-touch recording, metering for critical standards, repair and restoration tools, and round-trip interoperability with SpectraLayers Pro 2.

The software allows for recording up to thirty-two simultaneous channels of 64-bit/192 kHz audio and the latest edition aids in delivering broadcast ready, master quality finished products using built-in signal and effects processing tools. In the mastering suite, twelve iZotope DSP modules provide additional mastering chain processing tools for enhancing audio, along with repair and restoration plug-ins, and precise format conversion tools.

This is an upgrade available to owners of the previous version of the software.
