Studio recorder was designed for voice recording. It is a tool for book
narration with good accessibility and stability.

SoundForge was designed as an editor for film sound tracks, radio work, and
other specialized tasks. It has a lot of processor choices and special
effects. They can both be used for basic editing, but it's like comparing
apples and oranges. In my opinion, you should sit down and assess your
needs. What audio tasks do you want to perform? Figure out which features
you need--reverb, noise reduction,
 tone indexing. Are you going to edit any music?

When evaluating software, you have to know what you want to do with the
tool. They are good products, but direct comparison is difficult.

Just my opinion,

Subject: Sound Forge Vs. studio Recorder

I just bought Sound Forge and like it a lot.
I also just heard the ACB Main Menu feature on APH's Studio Recorder.
My brother is going to purchase a sound editor.
For those of you with experience in using both applications, how do
they compare? I know they are both accessible. Does it come down to
user preference?
I know the full version of sound forge is expensive, I bought the
less expensive version for now.
I'm currently using it for editing files. I don't have a podcast yet
although I may someday.
I'd be interested in opinions as to which sound editor is most blind

I know that the lite version of Sound forge is $69 and the full
version is about $299.
Studio recorder has only one version and its $200.
Neither is cheap.
Thanks for any input.
