Sony releases upgrades to Sound Forge Pro Mac

Sony Creative Software has upgraded its pro audio software for Mac with an upgraded Sound Forge Pro and updated Spectralayers.

Now in version 2, Sound Forge Pro Mac features: batch processing, refined metering for discriminating mastering and broadcast professionals, more processing tools, and event editing improvements.

The free SpectraLayers Pro 2.1 update features seamless interoperability with Sound Forge Pro Mac, an efficient reverb removal process, an improved noise reduction algorithm, expanded noise removal process options, and user interface improvements.

“Sound Forge Pro Mac and SpectraLayers Pro are evolving rapidly,” said Dave Chaimson, divisional vice president of Sony Creative Software. “Adding comprehensive batch processing functionality to Sound Forge Pro Mac fulfills our single most frequent customer request, and the new processing options available via the included Nectar Elements plug-in represent an unparalleled value.

"Mac-based SpectraLayers Pro users will now be able to enjoy the sensational Sound Forge Pro interoperability experience previously available only on the Windows platform, as well as the new reverb removal and noise reduction features we’ve built into the free SpectraLayers Pro update.”

While both programs are standalone applications, they now benefit from the same interoperability as their Windows-based versions, providing a comprehensive editing environment that combines deep waveform and spectrum editing capabilities.
