MAGIX Entertainment Sound Forge Pro 12 Suite is an audio-waveform editing software that delivers pro-quality multichannel recording, broadcast-level mastering, precision editing, and pristine audio restoration, on your Windows computer. A perfect complement to your music-production DAW, it provides you with a suite of powerful post-production tools to easily edit, process, clean, finalize, and share your game soundtrack, podcast, video, LP/tape recording, CD, or music project in just a few steps.

Sound Forge Pro 12 Suite features a 64-bit architecture, which harnesses the full power of your computer. It allows you to record and edit up to 32 channels of high-quality audio simultaneously at 64-bit / 384 kHz and with low latency. A set of three, noise-shaping POW-r dithering algorithms helps reduce the unwanted quantization noise created when the bit-depth of your audio is reduced, giving you the best possible sound when your audio is played at low levels, in various formats.

The software comes with DeHisser, DeClicker/DeCrackler, and DeClipper, four tools from the company's high-end broadcasting software Sequoia, designed to provide extensive audio-restoration capabilities. The Wave Hammer 2.0 plug-in includes a compressor and a volume maximizer to make your tracks sound louder.

Sound Forge Pro 12 Suite bundles the powerful spectrum analysis tool SpectraLayers Pro 5. Great for sound-design applications, it offers complete spectral visualization of your audio and allows every aspect of a recording to be shaped within a rich graphical environment, in real time. The VST3 support gives you access to a large variety of plug-in effects such as the included Analogue Modelling Suite, essentialFX Suite, VariVerb II, Vandal, Vintage Effects Suite, and more.

The Suite also contains high-quality plug-ins like iZotope RX Elements for cleaning up most common flaws in typical recordings and Ozone 8 Elements, a collection of mastering tools to render rich and loud final masters that are ready for uploading and sharing to any of the popular streaming formats.

Note:
This upgrade is available to owners of an older Standard or Pro version of the software.
