Hi,

since Soundforge 7.0 (using the VST Adapter) it seems impossible to let curve EQ learn a spectrum in non-realtime (e.g.  FAST learning) mode.  Instead i have to play the whole file which frequencies response should be learned one time in realtime :( That is especially bad for files over an hour, that could be learned within minutes before when using non-realtime preview.  Is there a way you could implement a learn spectrum offline mode?  Like a menu where i can choose the file which´s frequency response should be learned as source or destination?  Please help out, that issue is really bad now, i know its probaly Sony´s fault, but i also installed CurveEQ 1.9 together with it, so i am not sure who it is in the end.

Thanks for problem explanation.  I will try to implement and 'offline' matching in some of the future versions.  I see it this way: there will be an option in 'F' (file) menu allowing you to create a CQS file out of any WAV file.  Then you can load/match it through 'F' option, too.

However, this slightly degrades the amount of control - with real-time capture (e.g. in WaveLab) you can skip various parts and collect data only from the relevant parts.


Yes, that sounds good Alex!

I know, realtime capturing also still works with Soundforge.  The only problem is when i try to make a offline pre-view to trick it and learn the file very fast, i press the M button, choose 12 bands then disable Realtime in the Soundforge controls and press Preview, the M button just gets unpressed and CurveEQ is doing nothing.  That worked perfect before, no idea why its doing this now:(

OK, I'll check this out.  Possibly, I've overlooked something in the latest updates.

Thomas & Aleksey , I've got Sound Forge 6.e and VST Adapter v4.3.1 (Cakewalk) if you want me to try anything.

I don't know how different Sound Forge 7 is but in SF 6 I think I used to just bring up CurveEQ as an 'effect' instead of in that chainer thingy they have.

Let me know if I can help trying something out !  I decided not to go to Sound Forge 7 (yet ?) because of the regressions being discussed at the user forum.

I think there's no need in some additional testing.  I think I've disabled that 'workaround' in the latest version (I'll return it back though).  Anyways, I'm going to implement a small stand-alone program which will allow to capture spectrums in a quick mode.  It will work with any uncompressed WAVs, and possibly will offer an even better capture quality.
