"Ten Years -- Honest!"
I'm glad Sony bought it and it bringing it back to the forefront.
Sound
It's very good. The better the interface or input board the better, obviously, but this software has made the most of any of them.
Features
I know -- it's Windows-only software, two tracks only. But for huge projects, splitting up work over multiple workstations, even if I record on Mac and burn the eventual discs on Macs, it's still been worth my time and sanity to bring mono or two-track stuff across platforms to do the bulk of the work in Sound Forge.
Quality
Sound Forge is an armored tank that I've used to travel through the last ten years. I can think of no software, Windows or Mac, that I've used in my work that was as consistently uncrashable and reliable. When you're paying LA-area voice talent $125.00 an hour and up, you'll lose your shirt (or job, as applicable) by losing time, tracks or work. With Sound Forge, I never have.
Value
Reasonable priced.
Manufacturer Support
This company themselves as been great, although they had been over-extended just trying to develop too amny products over too broad a front, and conseqently had been strapped for cash. Now that Sony has them, they've left those people in place (and,well, I don't think Sony will be going broke soon...)
The Wow Factor
People who've never used it just stare at you when you talk about it. People who have used it nod knowingly.
