Audio editing functions

Podcast production
Record your own podcasts or DJ sets. Cut recordings using innovative wave editing. Increase the length of a cut after it has been set thanks to the new Slice Editing feature. Use Elastic Audio to quickly adjust pitch level in vocal recordings. 20 cleaning and creative audio effects are available for modifying sound.

Edit audio material with Soft Cuts
Soft Cut mode creates automatic crossfades after each cut, resulting in seamless transitions without pops and clicks. You can adjust these transitions at any time in their own specific dialog.

Remove noise
Isolate and clean noise or an entire frequency range. Identify noise on a visual level with Spectral Cleaning and get rid of hum, creaking, coughing or other noise in your recordings.

Digitize analog media
The new dialog for vinyl recording and restoration makes digitizing analog recordings easier than ever before. It also enables you to convert recordings to standard formats such as WAVE, MP3, FLAC or Ogg Vorbis.

Video sound optimization
Sounds and filters included in SOUND FORGE can also be used for editing video sound. Remuxing technology makes time-consuming degrading processes during rendering no longer necessary and guarantees high-quality images.
