I would like to use use Sound Forge as a VST plug in for OBS to filter my live stream audio. OBS sidechain filter>VST2 plugin should be a way in. Getting a realtime output from an input stream is something Sourceforge doesn't offer AFAICT
What I'm (still) really missing in Sound Forge is the possibility create shortcuts for (VST) Plugins. I'm doing a lot of audio restauration work in SF and often I need to open a plugin to process very short pieces of audio, continue to the next part, etc. It often feels like it takes more time to open the pulldown menu and select the plugin, then I am actually working on the audio itself...
If anyone knows an alternative way to easy open VST plugins (I think I have 8-10 favourites), or make a list of favourite VST's, which I can access directly from the main screen in one click, please let me know.
Hi @Sjoerd-W, You can add plug-ins to the "Fx Plug-ins Favorites" Go to the 'View> Plug-in Manager', select the plug-in(s) you want and drag them to the 'Favorites' folder.. or right-click the plug-in and select; "Add to Fx Favorites". You can also save a plug-ins parameters as a preset and/or multiple plug-ins in the plug-in chainer, both of which you are probably already aware of. In SF Pro, it is also possible to create and run a 'Script' to add Fx to the timeline.
FWIW, in SF-16, the deep-thinkers at Magix removed the 'Organize' command from the 'Fx Favorites' menu and created the new 'Plug-in Manager' menu item. They also changed the main Fx menu name from "Fx Favorites" to "Fx Plug-ins".
Can you post the Media Info. Most use the MediaInfo utility which lists the pertinent factors. For instance: Audio ID : 2 Format : AAC LC Format/Info : Advanced Audio Codec Low Complexity Codec ID : mp4a-40-2 Duration : 58 min 3 s Bit rate mode : Variable Bit rate : 128 kb/s Channel(s) : 2 channels Channel layout : L R Sampling rate : 48.0 kHz Frame rate : 46.875 FPS (1024 SPF) Compression mode : Lossy Stream size : 53.2 MiB (21%) Encoded date: UTC 2016-04-14 19:45:31 Tagged date : UTC 2016-04-14 19:45:31
If you can, post the file on a cloud drive, for instance, DropBox, GoogleDrive, OneDrive, Mega, 4Shared, ect. WeTransfer is a good temporary option for sharing a file.
I upgraded from SF Audio Studio 10 to vers. 16. Now vinyl recording and restoration is broken. Only saves the file occasionally. Mostly, it won't save at all.
Lost the vocal eraser and Izotrope also, and cannot find them only web sites.
I had to reinstall vers. 10 to save my LPs. Now it asks me to upgrade to vers. 17 also. Why would I do that? Already paid money to upgrade to 16, and it broke what I needed most. Sorry, but bugs are frustrating. No one wants to admit to bugs, but everyone has them. Is this being worked on? Do I get my money back? Is anyone talking?
I can save as wav or mp3 in v. 10. (Haven't tried them all, but never had an issue saving any files in vers. 10)I Tried saving as wav and mp3 in V. 16, but the problem is, if you hit pause, you can't save the file. If you move a marker, it won't save. And if you touch anything at all, it won't save. If you change the path, it won't save. And if I have to use only one format, them it's broken, for sure. Is anyone working on it?

Hi @kent-williams, If the iZotope plug-ins from Sound Forge 10 are Direct X, they will not work in 64 bit versions of Sound Forge... However, there is a work around... you can install the x86 version of SFAS-16 and use that for the iZotope DX plugs-ins. For instance, I have both the 64 and 32 bit version of SF Pro 16 installed so I can use the Direct X iZotope Mastering Suite that was included with Sound Forge Pro 10. Both the 64 and 32 bit versions of Sound Forge can be installed on the same PC without issue. They share many of the settings and the 32 bit version does not count as as additional activation.
Unfortunately the 64 bit plug-ins with not be avaible in the 32 bit version.
I just purchased Sound Forge 16 pro and when I zoom in and out on a beat the curser moves position which makes it impossible to cut/edit files. Is this some sort of bug? It happens on both my computers (Desktop and laptop). Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Yes I have this exact problem. Sound Forge 10 does not have this problem so I use version 10 ... version 16 is unusable because of this.
