Sony's Sound Forge Audio Editing Software Coming to Mac?
A new website at FinallyOnTheMac.com has just gone live, teasing a major announcement from an undisclosed company. The site currently consists of a single YouTube video entitled "Countdown to a revolution", with the site containing an additional eight blank slots where other videos will presumably be posted in the coming days.
We believe that Sony is behind the teaser campaign, and the video's focus on music and audio recording hints that the company's Sound Forge
audio recording and editing tools may be coming to the Mac.
The video offers the following tag lines suggesting that it is indeed an existing software product that is being rebuilt from the ground up for the Mac:
- The wait is over
- Rethought. Reshaped. Recreated.
- Reinvented for the Mac
No timeframe for an official announcement or launch has been given, with the website and video description simply mentioning that the product will be "coming soon".

I haven't used Sound Forge since I moved to the Mac platform in 2010 and I've missed it dearly. I've used it since 1.0. Wrote articles about it back in the day, and even demo'd it for the company at a radio station back in 2000.
I've written to the few contacts I have left there a few times begging them to do this... though the new Sony bosses are a lot less responsive than their Sonic Foundry counterparts used to be.
I sure hope this is the case.
I checked it out. Looks good for chopping up audio, but I didn't see any shaping tools at all. So I'd say there's still room for Sound Forge on the Mac...
As others have said this has nothing to do with DAW's such as Pro Tools, Logic etc.
It's main competition is probably Wave Lab. I hope the Mac Port lives up to the Windows version.
Well they've done it for the iPhone/iPad, so were half way there...ish. :)
Also, I really do wish they'd put Sony Vegas on OSX, I mean I just love the simplicity and power of Vegas and its the only real reason I have bootcamp on my iMac...
