Editors' Review

Sony Sound Forge Audio Studio 10 offers easy audio recording, powerful editing, noise and vocals removal, and audio enhancements, as well as plenty of audio effects. It impresses with its capabilities and pleasing design, but may alienate users because of its price tag.

Pros

Complete package: Whether you want to produce a final audio edit for CD tracks or record a karaoke song, Sony Sound Forge Audio Studio 10 will not disappoint you. It basically turns your PC into a one-stop recording studio with all the features you can ask for. Support has been extended to 32-bit 192kHz from the previous version, to cover even the highest resolution formats.

Easy to use and reliable: This app is 100 percent about audio. Drawing experience and features from Sony's professional offerings, this app provides a great environment for making music.

Cons

High price point: Sound Forge Audio Studio is at the top of the price range of home audio software. Many people hardly require all its features and will be more attracted by cheaper or even free products. Another category of users that would be reluctant to choose Sound Forge Audio Studio is video editors. The more advanced video editing packages have audio modules of their own, leaving even less room for pure audio products.

Bottom Line

Overall, Sound Forge Audio Studio proves to be powerful and functional and, in spite of its sophistication, remains accessible to beginners. The only issue with it is the high price, but we feel that in this case you're really buying quality. If you are worried about the price, consider looking for bundling options with Sony's video editing software.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Sound Forge Audio Studio 10 10.0 Build 252.
