CRYSTAL CLEAR SOUND QUALITY
State of the art metering tools and the completely overhauled recording workflow make Sound Forge the center of your studio.
REDESIGNED RECORDING WORKFLOW
Sound Forge Pro 11 features a completely redesigned recording interface that keeps you anchored in the workspace at all times while you shape and monitor incoming audio, arm and record takes, review your work, and prepare for the next pass.
WAVEFORM OVERVIEW BAR
Sound Forge Pro 11 features a new Waveform Overview Bar that makes file navigation easier than ever. More than just a simple strip that displays your exact location, this new feature also serves as an excellent locator and auditioning tool. Double-click in the bar to center your cursor in a time range defined by the waveform display, or click-drag to audition looping segments with customizable pre-roll and loop duration times.
Set a threshold via the options menu and recording will start automatically. This is an easy way to record yourself without the need of remote controlling the control room while you're in the booth.
Working with artists can be challenging. The recording process in Sound Forge won't get in the way of that. Just select a timecode compatible input – Sound Forge takes care of the rest.
You want to record the pristine sound of church bells without being anywhere near the tower? Just time your recording in Sound Forge and listen from a comfortable distance, while Sound Forge starts recording just in time.

NECTAR ELEMENTS BY IZOTOPE
The included Nectar Elements plug-in makes vocal treatment a snap.

From there, easily customize your sound by adjusting dedicated controls like Presence, Drive and Grit. Need to fix pitch problems, perform de-essing, or reduce room noise in your recording? Nectar Elements has you covered there as well.
With 10 powerful processors working hard behind the scenes, Nectar Elements offers simple, intelligent controls that let you focus on your sound, not your set-up.

The Mastering EQ is a six-band parametric equalizer featuring four bell filters, a high shelving filter, and a low shelving filter. It incorporates digital precision and analog modeling, as well as real-time spectrum analysis for essential visual feedback while adjusting parameters.
The Mastering Reverb was designed to add depth to dull mixes and smooth over acoustic imperfections. It features two processing algorithms, plate and room, and a real-time spectrum analyzer.
The Multiband Compressor is an essential tool for adding warmth and fullness to mixes. It allows independent control over the dynamics of four frequency bands, and adjustable crossover points that let you fine tune the range of each band.
The Mastering Limiter lets you create louder and fuller masters by limiting the dynamic range and boosting the perceived overall level of the mix. IRC™ (Intelligent Release Control) lets you dial in aggressive yet transparent limiting.
Precisely adjust the stereo width and focus of your master using multiband stereo imaging. Work with up to four frequency bands for independent control over stereo width by frequency. Visualize the stereo image with a powerful phase/channel meter display that highlights imaging, phase and potential cancellation problems.
The Harmonic Exciter is a powerful tool for adding analog character to your masters. With a selection of Harmonic Exciter modes, you can easily add tube or tape saturation, accentuate even harmonics, and add punch and sparkle to your project.
The Declicker identifies and removes clicks, pops and digital impulse noises. Set the fader to the sensitivity level you need, then count the number of clicks that are identified and repaired over time as your audio file plays.
Easily perform noiseprint-based noise reduction with the Denoiser plug-in. Simply click the Learn button while playing a random sample of unwanted noise contained in your target file and Denoiser does the rest, by applying a customized noise reduction process across your entire selection.
The Declipper plug-in reconstructs peaks damaged by clipping at either the analog or digital stage. Use the level histogram to pinpoint where the damage starts. Set the Clipping Threshold to determine where peak resynthesis will begin.
