If a series of teaser videos viewable at www.finallyonthemac.com is to be believed, Sony Creative Software are readying their professional-level audio recording, editing and processing software Sound Forge Pro for a Mac OS X release.
The app, which has been PC-only since its inception by Sonic Foundry in the 1990’s, has been at version 10 on the PC platform since June 2010, so it seems strange that an appearance on the Mac platform two years after the same version appeared for the PC should not be accompanied by a significant version upgrade for both platforms. However, if the shots of Sound Forge running on a MacBook Pro shown in the videos are for real, then the ranks of OS X audio editing apps are about to be joined by an accomplished, revered and versatile package that includes tools for sample-level sound design and mastering across multiple formats. It doesn’t do MIDI though, so Logic, Cubase and Pro Tools can probably sleep safe in their beds for now.
No release date has been confirmed by Sony as yet, but watch this space for more Sound Forge Pro news over the coming days.
