Sound Forge 9 Multichannel audio recording

The Multichannel audio recording looks like a great feature. From the Sony info page:

With Sound Forge 9 software, you can record multichannel audio when using multichannel sound card devices. Each audio stream can be set to a particular channel, and be edited in the Sound Forge interface just like a stereo file.

Check the Sound Forge product page for more information and a link to download a Trial version.

Also, the Spring 2007 catalog is out. You can sign up to get it.
