MAGIX Mac 3 Overview

SOUND FORGE PRO Mac 3 from MAGIX Entertainment is an advanced audio waveform editor optimized for the Mac OS X environment. It provides audio engineers with an extensive suite of restoration, repair, editing, and mastering tools, to record and produce broadcast- and streaming-ready audio master files, for music, dialog, video, and more.

SOUND FORGE PRO 3 features a flexible interface that can be easily configured to optimize your workflow for the task at hand. The software is equipped with a powerful audio engine that lets you simultaneously record up to 32 channels of high-resolution audio at 24-bit / 192 kHz. Precise control over the editing process is achieved with the ability to edit at the sample-waveform level, using the included SpectraLayers Pro 4 spectral editor. Distorted audio files can be restored with the iZotope De-Clip plug-in, which detects and repairs clipping artifacts, while the iZotope Voice De-Noise plug-in works to enhance vocals and dialog clarity by reducing background noise.

To help deliver a full and loud final master, SOUND FORGE PRO 3 comes with mastering plug-ins that include the Wave Hammer compressor/limiter and iZotope Ozone Elements. In addition, the automatic loudness leveling combined with the loudness meters simplify the process of finalizing AES/EBU-compliant, broadcast-ready audio-master files, and ensure compliance with broadcast loudness regulations such as the CALM Act.

What's New in Version 3

Highlights

  • Full support for VST, AU, RTAS, and AAX plug-ins
  • Over 75 professionally designed presets

Expanded Signal and Effect Processes

  • New signal and effect processes added include noise gate, reverb, simple delay, chorus, flanger

Automatic Loudness-Leveling Capabilities

  • Precisely calibrated AES/EBU loudness meters help you make use of the entire dynamic range for broadcast audio files
  • Loudness meter ensures compliance with broadcast loudness regulations such as the CALM (Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation) Act
  • Flexible meter positioning puts you in control of the location and the orientation of the meters

Audio Repair Improvements

  • Automatic clip detection quickly scans for and detects clipping
  • The Detect Clipping command automatically places markers at each instance of an audio clip to help you quickly locate and repair audio clippings

Dynamic Rendering of Project Files

  • No need to render intermediary pre-masters any more
  • Pass multiple audio pre-masters through unique plug-in chains as they are being burned Disc-At-Once to a Red Book standard CD
  • A single click saves every project file, along with information about the plug-in chain and its associated audio asset

Mastered for iTunes Auditioning

  • Hear exactly what your mastered-for-iTunes audio sounds like before rendering
  • Continue to adjust, edit, and enhance while auditioning the results in real-time without rendering

Load Audio Portions of Popular Video File Formats

  • Open and edit the audio stream from a variety of popular video file formats including XAVC, XDCAM, AVCHD, and more

iZotope RX Elements

  • De-Clip: Restores distorted audio by detecting and repairing clipping artifacts
  • Voice De-Noise: Specifically designed to fine-tune vocals and dialog by reducing background noise
  • De-Hum: Easily remove line noise and ground-loop hum
  • De-Click: Use the low-latency de-click algorithm to remove clicks and crackle from vinyl recordings, or attenuate the “clicky” performance of a bass-guitar track

iZotope Ozone Elements

  • Based on the algorithms of legendary iZotope Maximizer
  • Enables you to achieve a full, rich, and loud final master — radio- and streaming-ready

Key Features

Processing Power

  • Optimized for Mac OS X environment
  • Designed to work flawlessly with native and third-party plug-ins

High-Resolution Recording

  • Record high-resolution audio at 24-bit / 192 kHz
  • Up to 32 channels of simultaneous recording
  • Customizable window layouts give you access to flexible hardware routing and adjustable metering utilities

Precise Editing

  • Edit at the sample level
  • Configure viewing panels to toggle between multiple open files, and configure open projects for easy access to editing features
  • Easily switch between time-based or event-based editing modes

Interoperability with Spectralayers Pro 4

  • Complete round-trip workflow with SpectraLayers Pro 4
  • Experience the best of both waveform editing and spectral editing
  • Menu commands enable you to easily move files between the two applications and utilize the unique strengths of these powerful audio tools

Mastering for Music and Dialog

  • Combine native mastering tools such as the Wave Hammer Compressor/Limiter with included iZotope plug-ins to perfect the audio

Disc-At-Once CD Burning

  • Burn all open files directly to a Red Book compliant, replication-ready master CD
  • Add track markers to a single-file recording of a live set and burn a gapless, Disc-At-Once, Red Book standard audio CD

File Conversion Automation

  • Standalone batch processing application automates multiple-file processing in a single operation
  • Convert to a new file format, add processing and effects, add metadata including artwork, to multiple files in a single batch process

Flexible and Customizable Workspace

  • Easily optimize the interface for the task at hand
  • Click the show-/hide-pane buttons to quickly readjust the interface layout
  • Drag tools from one pane to another to customize tool location to suit your workflow

Multiple Edit Mode

Time Mode

  • For general purpose editing — enables you to select a range of time within the waveform, and manipulate just that audio

Event Mode

  • For editing non-destructively
  • Event-based editing allows you to divide a sound file into any number of independent sections (events) that can be arranged and rearranged on the timeline
  • Event Mode allows you to convert regions to events, lock event markers, region markers, and envelope points to events, and automatically ripple successive events forward in time while editing

Normalize

  • Use the normalize feature to accomplish standard peak-level normalization, or modify an audio file dynamics directly using average RMS-level normalization
  • Great for matching the apparent loudness of different recordings

Channel Converter

  • Use the Channel Converter to 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

Native Processor

  • Built-in native-audio processors provide powerful sound-shaping possibilities
  • Apply processes such as Auto Trim, Fade In/Out, Invert/Flip, Mute, Reverse, and Volume to a specific time selection within an audio file or to the entire file

Post-Processing

Bit-Depth Conversion

  • Convert sound files to different bit depths while applying dithering using the included iZotope MBIT+Dither plug-in
  • Achieve optimum bit-depth conversion with detailed control over parameters such as bit-depth selection, dither mode, noise shaping, minimize peaks, and silence harmonics

Sample-Rate Conversion

  • Convert the sample rate of an existing sound file accurately using the included iZotope 64-bit SRC (sample rate converter) plug-in
  • Achieve optimum sample rate conversion with detailed control over parameters such as sample rate selection, quality, steepness, filter length, cutoff scaling, alias suppression, and pre-ring

Time Stretch

  • Use zplane élastique time-stretch plug-in to achieve optimal pitch-shifting and audio file length adjustments, without artifacts
  • State-of-the-art psychoacoustic models and signal-processing theory provide stable timing, inter-channel phase coherence, and sample-accurate stretching
  • Achieve formant-preserving pitch shifting
  • Choose from various stretching methods tailored to your source audio, including Pro, Soloist, and Efficient modes
  • Monitor and adjust settings while previewing in real time

Synthesis

  • Perfect for creating pitch-accurate tuning notes and pink and white noise for room tuning

Wave Hammer

  • Audio mastering tool which combines a classic compressor and a volume maximizer
  • Use the Compressor to add punch to your audio or crank it up to create analog-like distortion
  • Use the Volume Maximizer to boost the overall level of a signal without clipping or distortion or to limit the signal's peak amplitude
