Magix Release Soundforge Studio 12

Hopefully Pro 12 is on the horizon


Magix has announced the availability of the latest update to Sound Forge Audio Studio.
They say: "Version 12 supplies everything you need to record, edit, enhance, and deliver high-resolution audio. The perfect tool to digitize, repair, and restore LP records and tapes, create podcasts, master audio, burn CDs, and render to all the popular audio formats for streaming on the web or playback on portable media players."
64-bit-Architecture
Built on a 64-bit platform to supply more editing power, more processing power, and a more powerful workflow.
Recording workflow
The updated and redesigned recording window offers easy access to all the settings and controls you need to achieve the perfect high-resolution recording.
Open and append command
An easy and fast way to assemble tracks for a CD. Select a file or group of files to append and they are automatically added to the project with CD track markers.
Non-destructive editing modes:
  • Slice Edit: Enables you to continue to tweak your edit even after you've made your cut.
  • Soft Cut: Creates automatic, user-adjustable crossfades with each edit to guarantee smooth transitions between cuts with no pops or clicks.
Spectral cleaning
Perform frequency-based noise removal. Visually identify frequencies of an offending noise such as a chair squeak or cough in your recording, then use the spectral cleaning tool to select and remove the frequencies that make up those sounds.
Vinyl recording and restoration workflow
The new workflow makes it easy to record vinyl LPs and tapes, remove crackle, pops, and hiss and burn to an audio CD or burn a set of audio files to a data CD or DVD in popular formats such as MP3, WMA, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, or AAC.
Visualization window
Presents several ways to analyze and track audio output including Peak meters, Phase Oscilloscope, Correlation meter, Direction meter, Spectroscope, Spectrogram, Bit meter, Oscilloscope, and Tuner.
Includes Ozone Elements 7 from iZotope, a $129.00 value
A mastering plug-in with a set of 75 professionally crafted presets, along with macro controls to fine tune the EQ and Compression to achieve full, rich, and loud final masters.
Repair and restoration tools:
  • DeClicker/DeCrackler: Automatically detect and remove clicks and crackle from vinyl recordings or other noisy environments.
  • DeClipper: Restore and recover analog o rdigital material with clipping artifacts.
  • DeEsser: Remove sibilance with presets for male and female vocals.
  • DeHisser: Easily clean up background hiss with presets for hiss behind vocals, cassette tape hiss, analog tape hiss, and more.
  • DeNoiser: Reduces unwanted steady-state noise like that created by air-conditioning, equipment hum, and amplifier hiss.
Elastic Audio Editor
Tune vocals to a pitch-perfect performance with precise control over pitch.
Support for popular video formats
Open popular video formats to enhance and repair the audio using the included filters, effects, and noise reduction tools.
Sound Forge Audio Studio 12 is now available online and in stores worldwide:
  • Sound Forge Audio Studio 12 - $59.99.
  • Upgrades from earlier versions - $29.99.

That is an interesting price for the package. Is that spectral cleaning new? It looks like a sweet deal to get the noise removal of Audition and jump on the iZotope upgrade path at the same time.

I will take a look at the trial when I get time, but on paper that looks nice for folks without those tools now.

Samplitude has had spectral editing at the track level for a while. 
It's quite nice.  I'm sure more extensive than what's in this, but still,
for this kind of money that's a pretty decent feature.

I installed the demo, and it replaced my QuadCapture drivers in Sonar with MagixLowLatency drivers, which was a far cry from low latency. I was not able to select the QuadCapture drivers so I uninstalled Soundforge Studio 12. Everything is good now!

After I installed the SF Studio 12 update, it did default to MME drivers. But my audio device drivers (and ASIO) are available from the audio drop down list. I simply selected my Apollo Twin USB and ASIO and all is good. Odd that your audio device is not even showing up to be selected.
 
A couple of nice surprises after I updated from SF Studio 10, both Izotope Ozone Elements and Magix Audio Cleaning Lab were included for free. Unlike previous third party add on's, I can use these outside of SF Studio 12. The Ozone Elements works great in both SONAR & REAPER on the mix bus. The main reason I did the upgrade, beside the low upgrade price, was because SF is now a bonafide 64bit app.

Unfortunately the code doesn't work for me. I get a message that says a coupon can't be used for this purchase.
I can get it as an upgrade for 29.99 USD,  which is still a good price.

 Was there a serial # for Elements?  Even though I have SF10 I bought this to see how the Sony/Magix transition is going.  Not sure what I think of yet.  One thing I did not like is it chose the first plugin folder for me.  I do not keep my plugins in Cakewalk\VST.  I need to find a registry hack so that any plugin installer doesn't choose the Cakewalk folder right away.  I get tired of scrolling for the folder I want.
 
 Acid Pro is on the horizon for 64 bit.   If they keep the same gui and add a dedicated midi window that may be my top choice for a DAW since I loved the workflow.
 
 Something else about this install that bother me is it downloads the installers and I have no idea where. Also the EULA doesn't say how many machines I can install it.

Upgraded to 12.  Been futzing with the preferences and such.  Seems to be a nice improvement over 10.

Was there a serial # for Elements?  

 
Yes, a few hours after I did the upgrade from the Magix site I received serial numbers and download links
for both SF 12 Studio & Audio Cleaning Lab and a separate serial number for Ozone Elements. I then went to
the Izotope website and downloaded the trial version and once installed used the same serial number to unlock it.
 
 
Acid Pro is on the horizon for 64 bit.   If they keep the same gui and add a dedicated midi window that may be my top choice for a DAW since I loved the workflow.

 
I still have ACID Pro 7 installed and use it from time to time. As a pure loop arrangement tool it is still the best IMO
and I do like the GUI and workflow. I will seriously take a fresh look at a 64bit ACID Pro 8 once it is released. If the upgrade price is reasonable and it is stable on my DAW I will probably upgrade. I remember first starting out with ACID Pro 1.0 back in 1999, so I am still quite familiar with it.
 
Cheers,

I left the upgrade in my Basket overnight and received an email with a discount code.
 
Got this upgrade for less than the offer price on Ozone Elements which it includes.
 
The MME driver installed but has not interfered with my setup.

No you can't.  An audio editor doesn't really need to be 64 bit.  My SF10 will open inside DAWs that ask for an audio editor, now only accomplished by a reg hack in Sonar.

Hmmm.....it could be a problem for me, because some of my recent plug-ins are 64-bit (or at least the version I installed).
 
I like Sound Forge though. Maybe they will introduce VST3 and CD/DVD/Media authoring in the next version. Or perhaps not, that's one of the selling points of Magix Samplitude.

Slightly off-topic, I was looking at Spectralayer Pro 4. Being into sound design and all of that, I find that could be a useful tool for remixing, audio correction (where you are unable to rerecord) and well I may demo it for 30 days.
 
I watched a couple of videos and whilst the guy (on a Mac obviously) never properly explained things I did get the gist of his demos.

To get rid of the Magix Low Latency ASIO driver:
 
Go into the Registry...
HKLM>Software>ASIO - delete the Magix Low Latency ASIO driver entry
HKLM>Software>WOW6432Node>ASIO - delete the Magix Low Latency ASIO driver entry
 
Note:
If you've got a piece of hardware that functions as an ASIO audio interface (and you know you don't want to use it), you can use this same procedure to eliminate that particular ASIO driver.

 
Thanks, Jim!  I know this is replying to a post from quite a while ago, but I'm super glad I found it as it solved a recent problem I'd been having with SONAR Platinum (most recent version), and which got even worse with Cakewalk by BandLab.
 
For context, I'd picked up Samplitude Pro X3 Suite when they had the "crazy deal" late last year.  I haven't had much time to try it out yet, and I'd been alternating between DAWs (SONAR, Cubase, Studio One) as I'd do new, or remix, projects. 
 
When I'd go back to SONAR, I'd often find that it had developed a new problem related to switching sample rates.  In the past, if I'd been operating at 44.1 kHz, and I loaded a 96 kHz project (most of my older projects are 44.1 kHz, while almost all my new projects are 96 kHz), there would be a brief burst of white noise as SONAR told my MOTU 828x interface to switch settings, but then things would work as per normal, with the occasional exception of needing to reassign the Master bus to the right hardware interface.  (I never pinned down when this happened and when it didn't, but it was pretty painless, so it was only a minor inconvenience.) 
 
Now, however, in SONAR, I'd get a cycle of events where it would have that burst of white noise, put a dialog box up that came and went too quickly for me to read, put the hourglass up for a while, and finally let in some user interface action for a very brief moment.  The exact order may have been different from what I am outlining, but the cycle was constant.  Eventually, I'd have to close SONAR, then jump through some hoops to set the sample rate (possibly also in the default settings as well as on the ASIO control panel for my device), then again try loading the project.  This issue also did affect some other DAWs, albeit in different ways (e.g. Studio One wouldn't even attempt to play audio).
 
When Cakewalk by BandLab came out a few days back, I found that the problem was more severe.  The cycle still occurred, and now the former dialog box became a little banner in the notifications area, which, thankfully, was now readable, saying something about the MAGIX Low Latency Driver.  But when I got to closing CbB, it would crash instead of just closing gracefully.  And again I'd have to figure out what specific hoops to jump through in each specific case.
 
With the newly readable banner in mind, I set out to searching for information about problems in this area and/or how to remove the MAGIX Low Latency Driver, since I doubt I actually need it for anything at this point (I wasn't even using it in Samplitude), and I eventually came across this thread.  Removing the driver per Jim's instructions resolves the switching sample rates issue in CbB (I'm assuming it will in SONAR, as well, but, short of finding issues in CbB that SONAR doesn't have, I intend to try using CbB instead of SONAR moving forward). 
 
While I do think SONAR and CbB (and some other DAWs -- Studio One, in particular) have an issue in this area, especially since I wasn't even using the MAGIX driver, I'm very happy to have this workaround/solution to stave off the frustration of having jump through hoops most every time I'd go back to SONAR to work on a project.

I jumped on the update. Funny, because I was thinking, "I wonder when SF12 will finally be out?" and went to the Magix website and found out it just got released (I never got an email informing me of the update though...). Yeah, it's not TOO different than the v11 apart from the 64 bit thing. But oh well, I used to pirate Sound Forge in my younger days, so I guess it all evens out when I bought the upgrade :)
 
Edited some audio files the other night. So far so good, no crashes or hiccups. Originally I had problems getting my Waves VST3 plugins to respond to the drop-down menu presets (changing parameters manually would work but none of the presets selected would change parameters). But running Waves Central and downloading the latest updates of my Waves plugins fixed all that.

I'm thinking about jumping on the Sound Forge Pro Suite upgrade for $299.  Seems like a pretty good deal considering my last owned version was Sony Sound Forge 9.  I already have the iZotope elements suite, but I'm thinking of dropping the extra hundred bucks for the SFP Suite mostly for the included SpectraLayers Pro, a $399 value by itself.  I've never used it, but it seems like a really creative and useful tool.  Any thoughts/suggestions?
