What is SOUND FORGE Audio Cleaning Lab?

Usually, when transferring audio from tapes, vinyl, or cassettes (through digitization), you end up with undesirable noises and deteriorated sound quality. Fortunately, SOUND FORGE Audio Cleaning Lab offers precision and professional quality tools to restore, repair and improve the sound quality of audio files. Distributed by the German company MAGIX, the fourth generation of Audio Cleaning Lab features updated workflows and modern effect presets but also includes powerful cleaning and mastering plug-ins from iZotope.

What are the key features of SOUND FORGE Audio Cleaning Lab?

  • What's new: In this version, you will find new features, such as (non-exhaustive list) the new modernEQ equalizer, the Loudness visualization tool (adjust volume and dynamics according to current media standards and international platforms), the new Plug-in browser tool (streamlines the working dynamics), an optimized audio engine (significantly reduces recording latency), the Steinberg SpectraLayers Elements 8 (spectral editor), and the Izotope RX 8 Elements (noise remover and restorer).
  • Digitization: Digitization allows you to make analog information digital. Hence, you can transfer while preserving quality (up to 96 kHz/24-bit resolution) any individual tracks or entire albums from vinyl, cassettes, or other audio media as digital audio to your PC. It is also possible to import audio from videos or CDs, record vocals for podcasts, and then edit these files individually. Once your digitization and restoration work is complete, you can export the files in any standard format, such as MP3, WAV, OGG, and FLAC.

  • Visualization: This is the first step when restoring digital audio. The spectral visualization will show you a clear and colorful representation of the different frequencies composing the audio file. In this way, undesirable noises can be easily identified and removed.
  • Cleaning: The Auto Cleaning function runs a file analysis and provides different cleaning suggestions. The cleaning settings can also be configured manually to suit your preference.
