adobe audition vs sony sound forge

hi to all,

for many years now i am working with adobe's audition 2 but i think it's time to move on a better and newer sound editing software

i have to say that it is really very easy for anybody to working with adobe's audition 2 (especially on sound edit) but i have the impression that it's sound quality is not crystal clear

i have been told that sony's soundforge studio 10 (euros 45 from ebay) is a much better program with top quality sound as well


please, i wish to have your comments

What do you do audio wise? What's your workflow?

If you are on Windows, perhaps, if a Mac, most definitely not.

No difference in audio quality. Maybe processing. Sound forge is now owned by Magix. It's future is uncertain. eBay software may not be legit. I have used both. I use Wavelab exclusively for editing now.

you can get audition 3 for free. i recently brought out my old netbook and loaded up audition 3 and am using v-studio 20 as my interface because I really wanted to try a little different work flow for a change. its quite refreshing to try something new. i do mostly guitar and vocal track demos on it. i can't really tell the difference in audo quality but i can see that audition 3 has a whole bunch of higher sample and audio rates than what is the default.

hi to all and many thanks for the replies

yes, i am still working with windows xp 32 bits

for the moment i am working with vst instruments (korg legacy collection, reason 3 and with some free vsti as well)

i always render my wave file as 96 khz @ 24 bits

yes, i know that magix owns now sound forge and i am wondering why magix done this

magix sequoia and samplitude are real pro grade programs

the sound forge studio i am referring is original from ebay shop

You could try out Reaper for free, if you want a cheap but capable DAW.

Serioiusly, one in EVERY SINGLE THREAD!

Guy is looking for a 2-track editor, not a multitrack DAW. Reaper can do what he wants, but it isn't the best tool for the job...

OP, personally, I've gotten used to Wavelab for 2-track duties (due to stubbornness), but I used Adobe Auditon CC for years before that. It is more than good at what it does. That being said, I have it for "free" with my CC subscription (mostly for Photoshop, Illustrator, and Premiere), so to me the cost isn't an issue (I'd be paying for it anyway)...

Calm down kid.
Op is using VSTis and Reason. I didn't say he has to use it but maybe trying out a DAW makes him explore other areas. And testing is free.
