Open sound clip from Vegas in Sound Forge

I used to be able to do this but haven't had the need in a couple of years. Now, working with Vegas 10, as I attempt to open a .wav file from Vegas in SF, I am told to buy SF 10. Is this for real? V10 won't open SF9?

Paul, can you change this by going to Preferences/Audio and browsing for SF9 in the Preferred Audio Editor dialogue?

Out of curiosity, what is it that you do in SF that you can't do in Vegas, audio-wise? I fully understand there are lots of things that the former has over the latter, but I am interested to know what specific tasks (just nosey I guess!).

In this case I was looking for how to stretch a sound track without changing its pitch. I tried Vegas' built in Sony FX but couldn't figure out how to implement it -- SF has a much more intuitive system. In other cases I needed to raise the volume of a track that was recorded too low in volume and on other occasions I needed to make a very subtle edit of taking out a single note; I know these too can be done in Vegas and again, I find it easier to do in SF.

The thing is, anything that I don't do on a regular basis I can learn but easily forget. I'm 75 today.

Yes, I think I'm with you on that - certainly for fine editing it's easier.

Happy birthday for today! It was my birthday yesterday. I hope that however you feel at 75 is better than how I feel at 48! (Although that could have been the 35 year old single malt . . .)

Yes, I feel more secure and at peace with myself than at 48. Try faking it; act old!

While working in SF now, I realized another reason why I like this way of working so much; it allows me to take the sound clip out of the time line to work on outside of the mess of clips in Vegas, and when done simply place it back where it came from by a single click on Save, assured that nothing in Vegas got unbeknownst to me disturbed in the process.
