Sony Sound Forge (formerly known as Sonic Foundry Sound Forge) is a digital audio editing suite by Sony Creative Software which is aimed at the professional and semi-professional markets.

A limited version sold as Sound Forge Audio Studio provides an inexpensive entry-level digital audio editor; it was formerly known as Sonic Foundry's Sound Forge LE.

By 2003, Sonic Foundry, the parent company of Sound Forge faced losses and tough competition from much larger companies and as a result, agreed to sell its desktop audio and music production product family to Sony Pictures Digital for $18 million.[2]

The software initially had Windows 3.x support, but after version 3.0 all 16-bit support was dropped. Additionally, Windows 95 support was dropped after Sound Forge 5.0.
