There are no Direct X or third-party plug-ins available in Audio Studio 16 FX Plug-in's (aka, Favorites) Organize. the legacy version of Wave Hammer and others that could previously be shared from SF Pro are no longer available either (as was possible in AS-15).

The APU wFX and the Wizard FX compressors causes AS-16 to totally crash when a parameter is selected.

I had noticed that as well and assumed it was a Win Fast/Slow click setting on my PC ... but it was not. I discovered double-clicking faster than 'normal' selects the region.
I hope this gets fixed in the update. I also hope the developers are notified of the issues in this topic.

Oh I see. I posted in the wrong thread. Would it be easy for you to move my original request to the right thread? Else I'll try to rephrase it there.

Hi, I have Sound Forge Audio Studio version 14. I'm waiting for the version which will allow me to disable VST scanning at the beginning. I hardly use it now because of this. I need a program to *quickly* edit audio files and I neither can't remove all of my plugins nor scan them each time. I think Sound Forge shoud rescan them only when adding a VST (which in my cases is only 10% of the times I edit a file). Also, I'm looking forward to improvements in the graphical workflow and not seduced at all by any new plugins.

Welcome to the Magix Sound Forge users community @cornell-webb.

FWIW, the VST scan can be disabled when launching Sound Forge Pro. I do not know if the command will work in Audio Studio.
Please start a new topic.

Hello,

I just bought Sound Forge Audio Studio 16 and I really like it, but I would like to mention my wishlist for the next version.

1. Customizable Instant Action panel. It would be amazing to be able to create your own groups with any command from the app's menu, as well as edit the existing ones.

A few examples:

I own the iZotope Everything Bundle, so it doesn't make sense to me to have to install the "Elements" versions of the full products that I own just to be able to access them from the Instant Action panel. 

I have no use for the Fade In Fade Out button, but I do use the Graphic Fade constantly. So it would be nice for me to be able to replace the In Out Fade for the Graphic Fade and have it at my finger tips. 

The editing section only includes 6 actions and neither is Reverse, or Time Stretch, which I use constantly. It would be nice if I could add them to that section.

2. The FX Plug-Ins menu is nicely organized but very inconvenient because it is a menu. If you have a big list of plug-ins, like I do, you can't search for a plug-in because there is no search feature, and if you look for it in the Third Party submenu, it takes forever because you can only scroll one item at a time by clicking on the button at the bottom of the submenu.
As opposed to that, if you select "Apply Plug-In Chain" and then you select the "add plug-in button" then you get the "Plug-In Chooser" which is a nice window that does have a search feature, and even scrolling is super fast. THAT should be the default way of applying a plug-in not the menu. And even better if you can have a button in the "Effects" section of the Instant Action panel for it. That would be amazing.

Actually, even better than that would be to make the "Plug-In Chooser" a panel that you can dock and access in a non-modal way, and that by double-clicking a plug-in you open the window that applies that plug-in. That would be the best.

3. The application should remember the sizes of the "Apply Plug-In Chain" window as well as the "Add Plug-In" window. It's very inconvenient having to resize them every time you want to apply a new chain.

Thanks

Hello-

I just upgraded to Sound Forge v16 Pro and it took away my "FX Favorites" from the pull-down menu where I could organize my everyday plugins to be featured at the top level BUT now I must go through all these various menus to find them along with no search feature? WTF were you guys thinking or am I missing something here?

Please let me know as this is just plain stupid as a professional working audio engineer here using Sound Forge nearly 30-years!

Also I could not find Sound Forge from your Product support pull-down menu. Please let me know or is SoundForge an afterthought for the company today??

Thank you and Best Greetings from San Francisco..

Dom

hi Dom-Toulon....if you've used SF for 30 years, then surely you know about the Plug-in Manager. the organize favorites window is the exact same as the plugin manager window....only you can simply dock the plugin manager window and always be able to organize your plugins and plugin folders without having to even click on the toolbar.

rraud wrote on 6/22/2022, 10:19 AM

A plugin manager toolbar icon or keyboard shortcut can be created as well to open the plugin manager.

Thank you. I already created a separate topic. I tried several approaches and I wasn't able to disable VST scan at the start:

https://www.magix.info/us/forum/disable-vst-scan--1263813/

I would upgrade to the latest version of SOUND FORGE Audio Studio if I was able to do so easily in the settings. I need to open and close my sound editor every day multiple times so the 2s of the VST scan make a huge difference. I don't mind that the VST scan takes place when I open the plugin manager or the favorites window in SF but if I only need to record an idea or trim and normalize a wave file I don't understand why I have to waste my time scanning changes in my VST's (some of them are regularly updated). Please give us that option! Unfortunately I can't afford to buy the Pro version only for this feature but I would be willing to pay 50-100eur easily for that option.

The VST scan can be disabled in the 'Internal' menu, but do not think it is easier than adding " /NOVSTGROVEL" to the shortcut's target path, which is as easy as copy/paste. A second shortcut could be also be created with the VST scan enabled.

clarkerz wrote on 8/28/2022, 8:40 AM

The APU wFX and the Wizard FX compressors causes AS-16 to totally crash when a parameter is selected.

I upgraded to Sound Forge Audio Suite 16 as I am also a Vegas Pro 19 user (having now cancelled my Adobe CC Cloud Subscription) I am have exactly the same issue with the compressor crashing. Is there any fix for this?

rraud wrote on 8/28/2022, 10:37 AM

The Wizard comp crashes AS-16 on my PC as well. Use another compressor for now, there are four or five or so in SF Pro, most of which should be available in both SF Pro and SFAS.. if both installed on the same PC . Hundreds of other third-party comp/limiters are available.. free and otherwise. I like the vintage 1176 FET sound of the (legacy) Wave Hammer on music projects.

This doesn't work in Sound Forge Audio Suite 16. Please include a video showing that it works, it may be helpful to see if I have missed a step.

craig-d wrote on 10/13/2022, 1:03 AM

hi @drmq, to my knowledge, the adding /NOVSTGROVEL to the target path as a way to skip the vst scan has not been available since version 13...you'll have to disable the scan internally.

rraud wrote on 10/13/2022, 9:50 AM

Thanks @drmq for the alert.

And thanks @craig-d, I was not aware the NOVSTGROVEL target path suffix no longer works.
