Dear SOUND FORGE Pro community,

We have been working hard on SOUND FORGE Pro 16 and are happy to announce that we have a new patch for you. Here is what has been updated:

Scope:

Version 16.1.1 is a hotfix update that adresses bugs and issues found by customers and beta testers and adds a bunch of newly reworked interactive tutorials. 

Features:

  • Reworked Interactive Tutorials:
    • How to burn a CD
    • How to use Vocal Activity Detection & Wave Coloring
    • How to pitch bend audio
    • How to use Visualizations
    • How to use the SF Context Menu

Improvements:

  • Elastique Pro time-stretching has been updated to the latest version 3.3.12
    • Performance fix for the previous update
  • Added and reworked help files and manuals for FR and ES
  • Improved tooltips in Instant Action View
  • Improved button states for Instant Action commands
  • Improved "Apply" button functionality in preferences' Labels section
  • Removed old VST-handling binaries
  • Plug-In Manager and FX Plug-Ins menu
    • Improved handling of Plug-Ins that are no longer scanned
    • Added a "Hidden" folder to the Plug-In Manager that lists all Plug-Ins that are otherwise hidden and allows to unhide them
  • Increased default size of the Interactive Tutorial window

Bugfixes:

  • A freeze while processing multichannel audio with FabFilter Pro Q has been fixed
  • Fixed an issue that let Plug-In Favorites sometimes disappear after rescanning
  • Various translation fixes for ES and FR
  • Fixed a crash that sometimes occurred when closing the Plug-In Manager after changes and opening the FX Menu while the VST Scanner is still running

We hope you enjoy all those new features and improvements! Make sure you tag us in your creations!

Best wishes,
MAGIX Team

Does this fix the show-stopping problem with 16.1 where VST3 plugins would not work? That is an absolutely vital and essential fix. If it is not fixed, then please provide a link for downloading the most recent build of 16.0, so that work can resume, which requires VST3 plugins. Thank you.

Confirm both 32 and 64 bit VST-3 folders are designated in the VST search folder dialog (Options> Preferences> VST Effects). On my PC, the 64 bit search folders vanished in the 16.1.1 update. Include both "Program Files> Common files> VST-3" and 'Program Files (x86)> Common files> VST-3".

I did a clean install of Sound Forge 16.1.1 and the VST3 64bit search folder appears normal.

Yes. That's confirmed.
VST3 plug-ins cannot run in SoundForge Pro 16.1 or 16.1.1. Has anyone gotten VST3 plug-ins to run in these versions?
