Sony updates Sound Forge Pro and SpectraLayers software

Sony Creative Software has released a free 2.5 update to Sound Forge Pro Mac, and a Version 3 upgrade to SpectraLayers Pro (Windows/Mac).

Announced at NAMM 2015, the free 2.5 update for Sound Forge Pro: Advanced Audio Waveform Editor features disc-at-once CD burning, the Wave Hammer compressor/limiter plug-in, a stand-alone Convert Batch Processing Automation Tool and other improvements.

The award-winning SpectraLayers Pro: Advanced Audio Spectrum Editor has been given a version upgrade that includes a redesigned interface, eight-channel surround support, faster processing and more.

While Sound Forge and SpectraLayers Pro are standalone applications, both are configured to work seamlessly with each other, designed to provide a comprehensive editing environment that combines deep waveform and spectrum editing capabilities.

“We’re pleased to announce significant upgrades and updates to our audio software product line,” said John Freeborg, vice president of global marketing for Sony Creative Software. “Sound Forge for OS X has hit a highly anticipated benchmark and users are invited to install the free 2.5 update. On the spectral editing side, our SpectraLayers 3.0 upgrade is extensive, reflecting a deep rethinking and reworking of the spectral editing paradigm. The list of new features is impressive, and they’re backed by core performance enhancements that contribute to a remarkably enhanced feel.”
