coreFX mastering effects
coreFX 2-Point Compressor
Compared to a classic compressor, a 2-point compressor has two kink points. This allows you to create different characteristics and offers more freedom when compressing dynamic range.
The limiter sets the maximum value of the processed audio signal level, which then won’t be exceeded. Volume differences are eliminated, so that loud and quiet sections are levelled out.
Suppress noise and increase your range, as the dynamics of the audio signal are increased for a more natural sound.
Compress the dynamic range of an audio signal and eliminate volume differences between soft and loud passages.
The gate is used to suppress quiet sections in the signal transmission. This removes noise and produces a clean sound.
coreFX delay effects
Create echoes with the Delay. The simple delay effect is based on analog circuits and produces time-delayed copies of the original input signal to create the echo effect.
For a fuller sound, Chorus produces a time-delayed duplicate of the audio signal with a slight pitch difference. A perceptible doubling and beating effect is created.
The Flanger creates a dynamic, colder sound. By superimposing the original signal and its time-delayed copies, sweeping effects are created for the classic ‘wandering’ sound.
Improved time stretching & pitch shifting
zplane élastique Timestretch with new élastiquePro v3 engine
Get impressive time stretching and pitch shifting without artifacts, thanks to the new élastiquePro v3 engine. Based on modern psychoacoustic models and signal processing theory, zplane élastique delivers stable timing, cross-channel phase coherence and sample-accurate stretching without sound degradation.

Professional recording workflow Thanks to the completely redesigned recording interface, SOUND FORGE Pro 12 makes capturing audio super productive. Adjust and monitor up to 32 channels of incoming audio, then arm, record, and review your work all in a single workspace. The Waveform Overview Bar streamlines your recordings with easy file navigation and scheduled recording for automatic sound capture.
One-touch recording (OTR)
For many veteran users, one-touch recording is a welcomed addition. With this latest version, you push record and stay on the main screen and everything is handled within the same workspace. This is a major time-saver and workflow improvement.
Direct Stream Digital (DSD)
With SOUND FORGE Pro 12, you are now able to import and export Direct Stream Digital (DSD) audio files. This allows you to step into the high-end audiophile market and use compatible equipment like the Tascam DA-3000 or TEAC UD-501. Record and mix in PCM format and export to DSD format for Super Audio CDs (SACD) mastering and high quality archiving.
You can set up recording to begin automatically from the selected input device by detecting when audio exceeds a set threshold. This is an easy way to record yourself without the need of remote controlling the control room while you’re in the booth.
Just choose Trigger from MIDI Timecode if you want to trigger playback or recording by receiving timecode from another device. When this option is selected, dialogs that specify MIDI triggers will also accept input from the MIDI input port, allowing easy entry of MIDI note and controller values.
Set up your recordings to begin automatically from multiple selected input devices using a timer. You can also use the manual record button to begin recording and the automatic settings will then determine when the recording should end.
Input bus effects
Create a vibe for your recorded artist by sweetening your source signal with plug-in effects and creating a pleasing foldback headphone mix for the musician to listen to. For instance, your guitar would be recorded directly (without the plug-in), and the plug-in would be processed each time you play or render your project. This method allows you to adjust the plug-in settings as you work on your project.
Waveform overview bar
This makes it easier to navigate through lengthy recordings. By default, the program now displays a second view of the waveform that’s scaled to show the entire file, not just the portion you’re editing. It gives you a better sense of where you are in the file. And it isn’t just a passive view – you can use it to quickly shift your edit position. It serves as an excellent locator and auditioning tool.
PRECISE AUDIO EDITING
SOUND FORGE Pro 12 lets you edit and process audio files, complete audio restoration tasks and design sound. It provides you with the precise audio editing tools to convert regions to events, lock event markers, region markers, envelope points to events, and automatically ripple successive events forward in time while editing
You can use the Edit tool to select audio data that you wish to modify, position and move the cursor. With the Edit tool you can also perform basic envelope points editing.
Use the Event tool to edit multiple audio events in a single data window, which can be an easier way to clean up edges and fades, and it simplifies laying out tracks for Disc-at Once CD’s.
The Magnify tool lets you zoom in to a region and when you drag the mouse over an area, it is magnified when you release the mouse button without losing your edit selection.
The Edit tool allows you to add, remove, or adjust envelope points but you have to use the Envelope tool if you want to add, remove, or adjust points on effect automation envelopes.
The Pencil tool lets you edit the waveform by drawing on it. For example, if you have a glitch in the audio data, just zoom in to the problem area and smoothly redraw the waveform.

DeCrackler removes a more continuous stream of irregularities (crackles) in your audio that become blended together at lower amplitude levels. The powerful SpectraLayers Pro 5 is now fully interoperable with SOUND FORGE, so just preselect a portion of the file before you send it to SpectraLayers for frequency-level editing, and then send it back SOUND FORGE.
