Notable Changes/Fixes in Version 7.0b

* A bug has been fixed that caused the Explorer window to lose its Favorites settings if the list was too long.

* A bug has been fixed that could cause excessive CPU usage when playing back or zooming files saved using the Windows Media Audio Lossless codec.

* Workspace (.sfw) files created in Sound Forge v6.0 now open correctly.
* Markers and regions now move more predictably when a plug-in changes the length of your audio data.
o When a plug-in is applied from the DX Favorites menu, markers are not moved if the input and output length match and no tail is created.
o When a plug-in is applied from the DX Favorites menu, markers beyond the selection are moved if the plug-in creates a tail and the Real-Time Preview Configuration window is set to insert the tail data.
o When a plug-in is applied from the DX Favorites menu, markers are scaled accordingly if the output from the plug-in is shorter then the input.
o When a plug-in is applied from the DX Favorites menu and the output is longer than the input, the full output is inserted in the file and downstream markers are scaled accordingly.
o When a plug-in is added from the Plug-In Chainer, markers and regions within the selection are not moved.
o If the output of the Plug-In Chainer is shorter than the input, markers beyond the selection are moved back as if data has been cut.
o If the output of the Plug-In Chainer is longer than the output, markers beyond the selection are moved downstream accordingly.
* A bug that caused the Graphic Dynamics plug-in to report inaccurate Ratio and Threshold settings has been fixed.
* A bug has been fixed that caused files saved as .raw audio to ignore the selected Big-endian or Little-endian setting.

* A bug has been fixed that could cause Sound Forge to crash when clicking in the Regions List or Playlist windows with no open data windows.
* A bug that could cause CPU utilization to reach 100% during normal playback has been fixed.
* A bug has been fixed that caused peaks to be rebuilt unnecessarily after extracting audio from a CD.
* A bug has been fixed that could cause problems with undoing edits past the point where the Save As command was used.
* If you open a Sound Forge project file (.frg) on a computer that does not have all the audio plug-ins used by the project, undo/redo information for the missing plug-ins will now be removed. In Sound Forge 7.0, you were able to undo actions only to the point at which a missing plug-in was last referenced in the project.
* A bug that prevented metadata commands from being saved to RealMedia 9 files has been fixed.
* A bug that prevented DBCS characters from displaying on the Summary tab of the Properties dialog has been fixed.
* A bug has been fixed that could cause overlapping or adjacent timer events to be missed when using the Automatic: Time recording method.
* A bug that caused the Review pre/post-roll controls in the Record dialog to be available in recording modes that do not support pre/post-roll has been fixed. The controls are available only in Punch-In and Automatic retake modes:
o In Punch-In mode, you can review takes with pre- and post-roll.
o In Automatic retake mode, the post-roll control is unavailable.


What's New in Version 7.0

* An Explorer window with drag-and-drop support for pasting, mixing, or crossfading files or regions.

* Integrated, dockable Spectrum Analysis window (not available in Sound Forge Audio Studio).
* Automated audio recording (not available in Sound Forge Audio Studio).
* Prerecord buffer for normal and threshold-based recording.
* VU meters for monitoring playback and recording levels (not available in Sound Forge Audio Studio).
* Clip detection and marking (not available in Sound Forge Audio Studio).
* Improved fade curves in the Graphic Fade, Envelope, Pan/Expand, Pitch Bend, and FM Synthesis dialogs.
* Sound Forge project files.
* Undo past save.
* Effect automation using envelopes, including volume and panning plug-ins (not available in Sound Forge Audio Studio).
* Compressed files will now preserve their settings when you click the Save button. In Sound Forge 6.0, you had to use the Save As dialog and choose a file format template. This is currently implemented for PCA, OGG, and WMA 9 files.
* Sound Forge creates proxy files (.sfap0) only for DV interleaved audio.
* Filtered noise, white noise, pink noise, and brown noise generators in the Simple Synthesis and FM Synthesis dialogs.
* An End Frequency control in the Simple Synthesis dialog to make quick work of sweeping a frequency range.
* Support for 24-fps, progressive-scan (24p) DV video files.

I never heard of Reaper. I checked out the website. I am not impressed with your Comments. If you like Reaper use it and be Happy.I use what works for me and you use what works for you. Sony Sound Forge Pro 10c give me speed and accuracy on my Computer. So you can go to the Reaper Website and Forum and kiss up all you like.Reaper is NO Sound Forge and you know it.

"It has to be one of the Fastest Burning Software(s) out there." --- what a mong comment, how can "fast CD burning" be possibly good? If I'm burning a CD, I want rock-solid burning at an appropriate speed for burner/disk combination.

Anything Sound Forge can do, Reaper can do for a lot less, practically free. Seems to be lots of Sony "tools" here lol.

i agree this tool is one of the best...it is a professional piece of software afterall (not some home-made toy)
i especially love little things like how you can zoom in/out with the scroll wheel (something u cant even do in the cubase sx editor)

and its awesome that it now supports vst plugs

.

what i found disturbing was this quote below:

"Best news of all, this is no more Sonic Foundry Sound Forge. Now it´s Sony Sound Forge!! woooohoooo go Sony! "

???


i dont often see someone cheering on a mega-corp as if it taking over a small company was a good thing

For audio stuff it still lags behind CoolEditPro (now Adobe Audition). Still, it is quick for fixing audio within a video file.

Actually, you don´t have to get Mainconcept´s MPEG plugin anymore. It is now integrated with version 7. You can handle MP3, MPEG 1 & 2. You even have presets to encode with vcd or svcd audio specifications. Ain´t Sound Forge great????

I can't believe I haven't left a review for this software yet! This program is amazing. The holy grail of all audio software. There is almost nothing this program cannot do. I use it frequently to restore audio, using the many filters and options it has. I especially love the paragraphic EQ and normalization tools. This is truly the "photoshop" of sound. Has a great set of presets and is easy to customize and add your own filter templates.

Remember to get the MainConcept MPEG Audio plugin if you want to edit MPEG audio (MP3, MP2, etc).

Forget about all other kiddie sound tools. Sound Forge is without a doubt, like our mate said below, the "photoshop" of audio software. It´s so easy to use, and the results are as professional as the ones you get with the $1000+ sound editing software/hardware. Get a demo version and fool around...you won´t believe what you can do. And like photoshop, you can add the best audio plugins if you´re looking for something in particular. The effects tools are great, and even greater if you take some seconds and change the settings.

Best news of all, this is no more Sonic Foundry Sound Forge. Now it´s Sony Sound Forge!! woooohoooo go Sony!

ok go get it...what u waiting 4?

Sound Forge is the standard for audio editing. Nothing else is as comprehensive, or industrial strength, as Sound Forge. It is the 'Photoshop' of audio.

That said, it is less than intuitive and takes a long time to master. Well worth it, though!

Great editing software, but a little harder to use then Goldwave &/or Cooledit. DX filters are very fast with realtime preview on most curent systems.
