Sound Forge Audio Studio
As many users may already know, even from their own experience, editing music tracks is a very serious task that should be treated as such. In order to get the best results in terms of quality and also to save some time when processing large audio files, besides a good hardware setup it is paramount to enlist the services of a powerful software solution.
One of the most appreciated and efficacious utilities of this type is Sound Forge Audio, which packs an impressive array of features and makes them available from a simple, yet highly practical interface.

Sound Forge Audio can record with a single click from a microphone or any other device you connect to your sound card. If you have a prerecorded sample you want to work on and it is saved onto an optical disc or on your hard drive, you can import and start editing it on the spot.
There are loads of processing tools that you can use onto your waveforms, so it is possible to fade in or out a portion of the track, invert, flip, mute, normalize or reverse the audio with the press of one button. Time stretching, channel swapping or sound smoothing can also be performed using the built-in functions of Sound Forge Audio.
Insofar as the sound effects you can use to make the recording or music file more to your liking, they are well represented as well. Included in the package are some of the most often used like delay, reverb or chorus, but also some specialized ones like amplitude modulation, noise gate, pitch bender or distortion.
As a whole, thanks to the plethora of tools and functions that are part of Sound Forge Audio, it is safe to say that you will get a complete music editing and production environment that is very well suited to fit the needs of all users, beginners or more experienced ones as well.
