Now shipping with iZotope's DeClicker, DeNoiser, and DeClipper 29/10/12
iZotope has licensed a suite of audio repair and restoration tools for the debut of Sound Forge Pro Mac, Sony's Professional Digital Audio Editor. Sony says that, built on a clean slate for OS X, Sound Forge Pro Mac provides a contemporary application environment that's perfect for recording, editing, processing, and rendering broadcast-quality audio master files.
"Sony was looking for highly innovative, easy-to use technology to raise the bar," says Alex Westner, Director of Business Development for iZotope, Inc.
"We're proud to be a part of the long-awaited release of Sound Forge Pro Mac." Sound Forge Pro Mac includes three algorithms to solve common audio problems: iZotope's DeClicker, DeNoiser, and DeClipper. These professional sound repair tools allow quick results directly in the Sound Forge interface. The inclusion of additional iZotope technology in Sound Forge's Mac version is a perfect complement to the iZotope Mastering Effects Bundle, found already in Sound Forge Pro for PC since 2007. "These new audio repair plug-ins are versatile, easy-to-use, and work like magic in a wide variety of situations," says Dave Chaimson, vice president of global marketing for Sony Creative Software. "For more than a decade, audio professionals have turned to Sound Forge software for recording and editing, and we're pleased to bring iZotope's acclaimed tools into the mix."
Pricing and Availability: Sound Forge Pro Mac software, including audio repair algorithms and mastering effects powered by iZotope, is now available worldwide through software stores and online retailers for an MSRP of $299.95 USD.
