Sony Creative Software has announced the availability of the Sound Forge Pro 10 digital audio production suite.

Sound Forge Pro 10 new features include event-based editing, disc-at-once CD burning, iZotope 64-bit SRC (sample rate conversion), MBIT+ dither (bit-depth conversion), musical instrument file processing and the élastique Pro timestretch/pitch shift plug-in. In addition, Sound Forge Pro 10 software is designed to provide new enhancements, including customizable window layouts, metadata editing, performance optimizations, and interactive tutorials.

“Digital audio production is a staple of not only the traditional recording industry, but also video game developers, post-production houses, video producers, web media creators, sound designers, and mobile device content producers. While developing this new version, we took into account the specific challenges each one of these industries face and incorporated many new features that provide unique solutions for these diverse professional needs, ” said Dave Chaimson, Sony Creative Software vice president of global marketing. “Extensive customer feedback and industry input ensure that the enhancements in Sound Forge Pro 10 software will intuitively handle the most complex projects of professional producers in today’s varied digital audio fields.”

Key new features in Sound Forge Pro 10 include:

Event-based editing
Event-based editing is described as ideal for precise audio mastering, assembling project sketches, or laying out tracks for authoring disc-at-once CDs. “In Sound Forge 10, users can quickly move, split, slip, and trim events, create fades, apply ASR envelopes and crossfades within in a single data window for more precise audio control, ” Sony Creative Software says.

Integrated Disc-at-Once (DAO) CD burning
Integrated disc-at-once CD burning is designed to result in time savings and provides a more efficient workflow when generating Red Book compliant disc-at-once premasters of music suitable for professional replication.

Zplane élastique Pro Timestretch DirectX plug-in
The élastique time stretch and pitch shift plug-in is designed to provide better sounding audio when processing audio files. Users can also monitor and adjust settings while previewing in real-time, and select from various stretching methods that are tailored to their source audio including Pro, Soloist, and Efficient modes.

iZotope 64-bit SRC (sample rate conversion) and MBIT+ dither (bit-depth conversion)
The iZotope 64-bit SRC utilizes a hybrid low pass filter design, to result in better quality audio with less aliasing converting material from one sampling rate to another. The iZotope MBIT+ dither employs psychoacoustic methods to distribute noise into less audible ranges, resulting in improved audio and smoother fades when converting the bit rates of audio files, according to SCS.

Musical instrument file processing (.DLS, .SF2, .GIG)
Sound Forge Pro 10 software opens, processes, and saves DLS, GigaStudio/GigaSampler, and SoundFont 2.0 musical instrument files. Users can view bank, instrument, note range, and sample information. Effects and processes can easily be added directly to samples.

Customizable window layouts
Customizable window layouts are designed to allow users to create and save multiple unique interface layout configurations for single and dual monitor systems, and recall a window layout for specific editing tasks such as audio editing, CD layout, and multichannel file editing.

Mastering Effects Bundle 2 powered by iZotope
The bundle of audio mastering tools included with Sound Forge 10 is valued at over $200 and includes six professional plug-ins to master and enhance audio production: Mastering EQ, Mastering Reverb, Multiband Compressor, Mastering Limiter, Stereo Imager, and Harmonic Exciter.

Interactive tutorials
Sony Creative Software’s interactive tutorials are designed to provide walk-through demonstrations of common features and functionality, including DAO CD burning, vinyl recording and restoration in order to help users spend less time learning and more time editing and mastering audio projects.

Price and Availability
The Sound Forge Pro 10 digital audio production software is now available in English and Japanese from www.sonycreativesoftware.com and select retailers and e-tailers worldwide.

Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for Sound Forge Pro 10 software is U.S. $499.
