    MAGIX releases the 14th version of the high definition DAW, Sequoia. With various new features in areas of editing and hardware support, the release is specifically attuned to the needs of big-studio audio and broadcast engineers.

    For decades, the high definition DAW Sequoia 14 has been the gold standard for audio production, broadcasting and mastering in the high-end segment. The software has a following among international artists  and can boast partnerships with broadcasters around the world spanning many years.

    The latest version specifically focuses on strengthening the core area of editing. The award-winning Melodyne plug-in is now directly built into Sequoia via the ARA and the plug-in from Celemony is automatically included in the essential version. And thanks to significant collaboration between the host and client, additional professional functions such as tempo automations and audio-to-MIDI direct are available as well.

    Another permanent component of Sequoia 14 is the SpectraLayers Pro 4 spectral editor. The software continuously sets new standards with its unique layer-based concept for working with frequencies. In international film studios, the editor has long been considered a standard in the area of audio restoration and sound design, complementing the high demands of engineers in the area of spectral editing.

    Highlights for mixing and broadcast include seamless and optimized cooperation of Sequoia and Pro Tools | S6 Controller. The DAW and the high-end mixer from AVIDR work together using precisely calibrated EUCON protocols – this means that Sequoia can also be controlled using the iOS app developed by AVID.

    The latest release underscores MAGIX's high ambitions in the audio field following successful acquisition of several Sony Creative Software products including SOUND FORGE and the ACID series. Following SpectraLayers Pro 4, the Music Maker free version, and SOUND FORGE Pro MAC, Sequoia 14 is already the fourth audio release in the last six months. Additional versions of SOUND FORGE are to follow later this year.

    MAGIX Software GmbH continues on course for growth and invests in virtual reality, a market of the future. Software manufacturer MAGIX has significantly expanded its VR sector and is announcing the launch of a VR Suite next spring.

    MAGIX has been working in collaboration with Intel (Alloy) and Microsoft (HoloLens) on VR projects for some time. The company recently 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 MAGIX management.

    According to Digi-Capital, the VR video market will grow to over 6 billion USD by 2020. With over 2.5 million professional customers and industry-leading software products VEGAS Pro and Video Pro X, MAGIX has unique access to a broad targeted group with a high level of interest in virtual reality.

    The VR Suite will contain the new "MAGIX VR Maker" as well as MAGIX video software. It will enable users to independently create VR applications for Web VR and VR mobile apps based on 360° photo and video material. With this new suite, MAGIX will bring a powerful, complete solution to the market enabling users to create and share new visual worlds.

    It’s official: The SOUND FORGE community will be pleased to hear that MAGIX has committed to upgrades for the entire SOUND FORGE family of products. Currently under development by engineering teams in the US and Germany, new upgrades begin to arrive this month with upgrades for the entire line slated for completion within the next 12 months.

    SOUND FORGE Pro Mac 3 marks the beginning. Support for 64-Bit float/192kHz/32 channels high-resolution audio, sample-accurate editing, enhanced professional-level filters and processing and disc-at-once Red Book Standard audio CD authoring makes SOUND FORGE Pro MAC 3 the perfect tool for audio processing and mastering on macOS. Version 3 adds several new features including loudness metering and the iZotope Plug-ins RX Elements and Ozone 7 Elements.

    A new, 64-bit version of SOUND FORGE Audio Studio follows at August 8, 2017. Top features include: Improved DSP-algorithms for native audio effects, slice-oriented edit mode providing a dynamic way to edit wave files, VST3 compatibility and enhanced accessibility.

    After 4 years without a new version, SOUND FORGE Pro 12 is expected to roll out end of 2017. Teams in both Berlin, Germany and Madison, Wisconsin have set a goal to raise the bar for audio editing and mastering in version 12.

     “For years, the name SOUND FORGE has defined the industry standard for top-tier professional audio recording, editing, and mastering tools,” said Gary Rebholz from SOUND FORGE team. “But we're not satisfied with relying on our reputation, so our teams in Berlin and Madison, now join together to renew a commitment to carry on this unparalleled legacy. Audio pros and enthusiasts alike will continue to rely on SOUND FORGE for years to come.”

    The latest version of SOUND FORGE Pro Mac 3 is now available online for $299/€299.
