Sony Creative Software updates Sound Forge Pro Mac & SpectraLayers Pro

Sony Sound Forge Pro Mac

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

Sound Forge Pro: Advanced Audio Waveform Editor is the application of choice for a generation of audio editors. The free 2.5 update for OS X features disc-at-once CD burning, the classic Wave Hammer compressor/limiter plug-in, and other improvements.

The award-winning SpectraLayers Pro: Advanced Audio Spectrum Editor stands at the forefront of the audio spectrum editing movement. Parallel developments in program design and core engine performance combine to deliver the most highly-evolved and surgically precise spectral editing platform available.

While Sound Forge and SpectraLayers Pro are standalone applications, both are configured to work seamlessly with each other, providing 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 Pro Mac users are invited to install the free 2.5 update. Now with CD burning capability, the stand-alone Convrt Batch Processing Automation Tool, and our classic Wave Hammer compressor on board, Sound Forge for OS X has hit a highly anticipated benchmark. 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.”

Sound Forge Pro Mac 2.5 is available for purchase for $299.95 USD; SpectraLayers Pro 3 for Windows and Mac is $399.95 USD. Upgraded cross-platform Audio Master Suite bundles are now also available.
