The latest instructional video from the Digital Music Doctor covers the latest version of Sony's audio editing application, Sound Forge 8. Titled Sound Forge 8-Know It All!, this course contains over 2 hours of interactive videos as well as sample projects covering all aspects of audio recording and editing. The course also covers CD Architect 5.2 which is now bundled with Sound Forge.

This course contains seventeen modules and is organized into four sections: There is an overview section which covers the features that are new to Sound Forge 8 and also provides an introductory tour of the Sound Forge workspace. The second section, Projects, is the heart of the course. It has a Quick Start tutorial which provides an introduction to Sound Forge editing and processing tools, followed by three in-depth modules which demonstrate editing and processing techniques using project examples. The Tool & Techniques section contains seven mini-tutorials which cover the specialized functions available in Sound Forge: Spectrum Analysis, Video, MIDI Keyboard & Triggers, Batch Converter, Acid Loops, Generating Sounds, and Finding & Repairing. Finally, there is a section on CD Architect 5.2 which covers both CD creation as well as the use of mastering tools.

Sound Forge, acquired by Sony Pictures Digital from Sonic Foundry in 2003, was one of the first digital audio editors.

Sound Forge 8-Know It All! is presented using Macromedia Flash and is available on CD-ROM for Microsoft Windows 2000 and XP. This Sound Forge 8 tutorial is the seventh release in the Know It All! series which provides training for Steinberg Cubase and Cakewalk Sonar as well as Sony Acid Pro and Sound Forge audio and music production systems.
