Hello! I'm having trouble with Sound Forge 12. Recently, I installed it on my pc, but even through using the demo version or the full version, I am unable to save and/or open mp3 files. The plugin is missing entirely from Magix plugin library, I tried restarting the computer, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software, no help there. I remix and mash up audio files that I've acquired, which are mostly mp3, so I cannot do this without the plugin. Also, numerous other plugins have seeminly "vanished". I don't know exactly what's causing this. It started today, and has happened before in the past.


I use a Windows 10 Pro, 64 bit computer. It's a custom built pc, which is also currently experiencing mouse lagging and glitches.

it is a nvidia geforce 1060 6 GB, with an Asus Prime Z270A motherboard.
