Sound Forge (formerly known as Sonic Foundry Sound Forge[3], and later as Sony Sound Forge [4]) is a digital audio editing suite by Magix Software GmbH which is aimed at the professional and semi-professional markets. There are two versions of Sound Forge: Sound Forge Pro 12 released in April 2018 [5] and Sound Forge Audio Studio 13 (formerly known as Sonic Foundry's Sound Forge LE) released in January 2019[6]. Both are well known digital audio editor and offer recording, audio editing, audio mastering and processing audio.

In 2003, Sonic Foundry, the former parent company of Sound Forge, faced losses and tough competition from much larger companies; and, as a result, agreed to sell its desktop audio and music production product family to Sony Pictures Digital for $18 million.[7] The software initially had Windows 3.x support, but after version 3.0 all support for 16-bit Windows was dropped. Additionally, Windows 95 support was dropped after Sound Forge 5.0.

On May 20, 2016 Sony announced that they would be selling the bulk of their creative software suite, including Sound Forge Pro, to Magix GmbH & Co. Magix announced via facebook that their first new version of Sound Forge Audio Studio (Sound Forge Audio Studio 12) is set to be released in Aug of 2017. [8]
