    SOUND FORGE Pro began as a revolutionary mastering workstation for audio engineers in 1993. Since then the software has been adopted by many leading audio professionals the world over, such as Ted Perlman, Paul Brown and Anthony Casuccio.

    Since SOUND FORGE was acquired from Sony in 2016, MAGIX has been reviving the entire product line, releasing SOUND FORGE Audio Studio 12 and SOUND FORGE Pro Mac 3. Now SOUND FORGE Pro 12 is sure to set a new benchmark in precision audio processing. This important milestone release also marks the audio master's 25th anniversary.

    SOUND FORGE Pro 12 further enhances the traditional strengths of SOUND FORGE Pro by adding new cutting-edge mastering and restoration features, along with modern hardware and platform compatibility. The software has a new 64-bit architecture and a large suite of additional plug-in effects, which now benefit from VST3 compatibility. DSD formats are supported in the new version and allow for import and export of audio files in optimal quality. SOUND FORGE Pro 12 also makes use of innovative psychoacoustic mastering, which can prevent conversion artifacts through high-quality Pow-r Dithering algorithms.

    Four tools from MAGIX’s high-end broadcasting software SEQUOIA were also added in the new version. The Wave Hammer 2.0 tool offers automatic mastering options while still giving users total control over their sound. The features DeHisser, DeClicker/DeCrackler and DeClipper provide SOUND FORGE Pro extensive audio restoration capabilities. 

    With all of these additions and enhancements, SOUND FORGE Pro 12 can step up to any audio task. From pro-quality multichannel recording to broadcast level mastering, precision editing to pristine restoration, this latest version is the ultimate audio editing tool for audio professionals.

    SOUND FORGE Pro 12 Suite has also been announced which adds the highly innovative spectrum analysis tool SpectraLayers Pro 5. This is a sound designer's dream as it presents the user with a complete spectral visualization of the audio and allows every aspect of a recording to be shaped within a stunning graphical environment. The Suite also contains high-value plug-ins like iZotopes RX Elements and Ozone 8 Elements.

    Finally, MAGIX Software is also offering SOUND FORGE Pro 365 which is a flexible subscription service that allows users to enjoy the many professional features of SOUND FORGE Pro 12 for low monthly fees from $14.99 per month.

     

    SOUND FORGE's product owner Thomas Wolf, says: “All improvements in SOUND FORGE Pro 12 are based on feedback from our users. We completely focused on their requests. The overall performance of SOUND FORGE Pro has been considerably enhanced by bringing the software to the 64-bit platform, and the new VST3 support grants access to a huge variety of plug-in effects. We've also added a large number of professional plug-ins and features but the software retains an intuitive workflow. We truly believe that, on its 25th anniversary, SOUND FORGE Pro 12 sets a new benchmark for the professional audio production industry.”

     

    There are three versions of SOUND FORGE Pro 12 to choose from:

    The release of Photostory Premium VR complements MAGIX's successful Photostory product family with a new, innovative way of editing photos and videos. The program includes an extensive set of VR functions, the full functionality of Photostory Deluxe and numerous additional effects.

    Photostory Premium VR offers users various options to create interactive VR presentations. 360° photos and videos can be assembled to form professional virtual tours. Additional content such as regular photos and videos or texts can be added and edited with just a few clicks. The software also makes it possible to achieve real surround sound by adding audio files. Users who do not have an extensive collection of 360° or 3D content can also display their conventional photos and videos in one of the 3D worlds provided by the program.

    No additional hardware is required to run Photostory Premium VR and create impressive interactive VR presentations. Even an ordinary PC or laptop can realize the full potential of this incredible new VR software. It brings a technology, which is increasingly used at trade fairs and in the real estate industry, to a completely new audience of every-day users. Photostory Premium VR also supports advanced VR hardware and fully-featured VR content that can be extensively edited.

    For sharing and playing finished VR experiences MAGIX provides the free app MAGIX VR-X Player. This allows viewing on a PC or laptop, with VR glasses or with a VR headset for smartphones.

    MAGIX has also announced Photostory Premium VR 365 which is a subscription service that allows users to enjoy all of the professional features of Photostory Premium VR for a low monthly fee.

     

    “Virtual reality is currently one of the most exciting technological developments of our age”, says Stefan Renz, Photostory Premium VR's product owner. “We have  over 20 years of experience in developing photo and video editing software and are using this knowledge to help shape VR innovation. We truly believe that Photostory Premium VR will greatly expand the circle of users who can take part in this exciting new technology.”

     

    MAGIX has already been working on VR projects with Intel (Alloy) and Microsoft (HoloLens). In 2017 the company acquired Dresden software firm, simplitec GmbH in order to tap into the virtual reality market. The simplitec team is now fully focused on VR development under the MAGIX management.

    Depending on their requirements VR newcomers and professional producers of VR content can choose between different versions of Photostory Premium VR:

    VEGAS Creative Software releases VEGAS Movie Studio 15. This brand-new version makes it the most powerful two-in-one solution for video and audio editing in its segment.

    Based on the core technology and features of the award-winning VEGAS Pro, the latest update of VEGAS Movie Studio enables professional results with minimal effort. 4k video editing and hardware acceleration improvements (support for Nvidia and Intel's Quick Sync Video) bring top-level standards of video excellence and speed, whilst the new HEVC support allows users to significantly compress large video content while maintaining perfect quality.

    The new modern user interface is now fully customizable to benefit experienced editors. Firstly, a new ‘hamburger menu’ button has been added, giving users the power to decide which button set should be visible in each window. The most noticeable update from the previous version is a logical, modern docking window behavior and control that allows users to arrange the workspace to individual workflows. You can even select between dark or light shades of interface background color according to preference.

    For the beginners, a Quick Start dashboard has been added to guide with step-by-step instructions for video production, making it even easier to get started. An integrated ‘Show-Me-How’ tutorial feature that already exists from previous versions is still there to help. On top, new features like picture-in-picture scenes, freeze frames and split-screen sequences provide a professional look-and-feel to the video with just a few clicks on the storyboard. YouTubers or Vloggers will love the sharing-workflow-automation feature, now with improved file format support including iPhone video files.

    For advanced users, the Suite version additionally offers iZotope RX Elements to achieve high-quality sound, as well as top-notch film effects coming from HitFilm and Boris FX.

     

    “With the new VEGAS Movie Studio 15 we bring the powerful technology and high efficiency of VEGAS Pro to everyone who wants to make best-quality videos with minimal efforts,” says Gary Rebholz, VEGAS Product Owner.

     

    Depending on their requirements, filmmakers can choose between three different versions of VEGAS Movie Studio 15:
