Most effects that can alter the volume level of a file have two faders, Dry Out and Effect Out (where Effect is the name of the specific effect).
In processing dialogs, you can click the More button to display Wet Gain and Dry Gain controls at the bottom of the dialog.
These controls should be adjusted for the proper balance of processed and unprocessed sound and also determine the combined volume level. For example, if you run an effect with both controls set to 40% and the level after processing is too low, simply raise both faders an equal amount to raise the final level. However, take care to keep the output signal from clipping.
Some processing functions used by Sound Forge software are very math intensive. Examples include EQ, Pitch Shift (without preserving duration), and Reverb. This means that millions of integer and floating-point arithmetic operations must be performed for each second of sampled data. The speed of processing these functions is directly dependent upon your CPU’s ability to perform floating-point operations.
We recommend that you break the files into smaller ones and then mix the smaller files together after you are done processing.
One way to prevent disk-related editing delays is to use the Regions List and Playlist to make all arrangements nondestructively and then use the Convert to New function on your Playlist. Another useful feature in the full version of Sound Forge software is the Preview Cut command: you can use this function to verify your Cut and Clear operations before actually changing the file.
