Hello Sound Forge Users,

A couple of weeks back, you may have been asked to participate in a survey that we created. The focus was on platform preferences, CD burning, and high resolution audio. Thanks for your responses! We're taking a close look at the data we collected in order to help us pinpoint what your needs are and what you're interested in.

Our survey didn't have a place for you to type in anecdotal information, and so I'm hoping that we can utilize this forum for that. It'll also be fun to discuss this stuff among us.

Here's a chance for you to vent your spleens on these topics! We're listening and we'd love to hear what you have to say about:

High resolution audio. Do you listen to high res (24/96 and up) formats? Do your clients? What do you play high resolution files back on? What's the future of high resolution audio?

CD burning. What's the current status? Are you burning a lot of CDs? Listening to CDs that you burn? Burning CDs for clients? Creating and burning Red Book masters? Is CD burning important to you? What's the future going to look like?

PROS: how often are you asked to burn audio CDs? What's the demand? When was the last time you bought a spindle of blanks? :-)

And so on. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on CD burning and high res audio, and in particular, what the PROS are doing, and where you see things trending.

Thanks! Can't wait to hear back from you...

High resolution audio I could care less about but lack of CD burning was one of the main reasons I didn't buy SF Mac. Long time user of Sound Forge on PC and was overjoyed to see SF Mac but disappointed to see no CD burning. So I purchased Adobe Audition instead.

I do burn cd's for myself and clients as no one I've come in contact with uses things like an iPod. Usually burning a couple of different cd's a month and multiple copies of those. I buy big spindles of blanks so my purchase is 1 or 2 a year.

I still get requests to burn CDs of some of my recordings. I have a blu-ray burner and a DVD burner on my MAC as external drives connected thru USB.

My main product is a set of CDs, but I just provide a .wav file to the duplicator with regions and the duplicator makes the CD masters on a PC with CD Architect and then imports with regions converted to tracks.
