Magix Sound Forge (originally owned by Sonic Foundry, then Sony, and now Magix) is a DAW dedicated to high fidelity audio production. It is focused specifically towards professional audio recording and mastering, sound design, audio restoration, and Red Book CD creation. Similar to the relationship between Steinberg’s Cubase and Nuendo, Acid Pro and Sound Forge Pro split the duties of music production and audio production. Sound Forge Pro is also commonly used for creating Acid Loops.
