An Oldie Still A GoodieSix years ago I used to record artists like Broadway types, folk people and opera singers direct to Sound Forge. I used a rack reverb and rack compressor to a Mackie mixer on the fly. It was quick because these kind of musicians try to get it right on the first take.
Wham. Done. The new Sony version has the same nice spacial good looks and logical pull downs. It makes imported media sound good for reasons unknown.
The included simplified Izotope sweetening plug-in is a trip. I just did a folkie on Audacity then dumped it into Sound Forge. Brought up a Greg Brown number for an "A" reference then tweaked my folk number with the Izotope to sound like the reference. Izotope is muy powerful and the simplest plug in I have encountered. Like, master city!
Fun, fun, fun. Four stars because of Sony's maddening registration process. Good luck on that horror. And the Izotope registration is worse. Copying long strings of numbers in 4 point type. Programs will not work if you don't get it right. Give me a break, some strong reading glasses and some Ibupropin. Idiots.

Sony Sound ForgeRating this product on the basis of my use so far is not really fair, seeing that this is my first experience with a sound editing program. But be that as it may, my experience so far is that the program is way over-weighted with computer slang (cut-and-paste, user interface - etc.) and should have, instead of the talky but seemingly incomplete "ask me how" prompts, a step-by-step task oriented instruction manual that starts with the simplest tasks, referring to a chart with numbers assigned to the various software "buttons" and a pathway chart referring to the numbered buttons to be used in sequence to accomplish various tasks. As it stands now, I'd pay an extra $20 for a copy of that book!
