Make sure that:
Your record drive is separate from your boot drive. Your record drive should
also be internal: IDE or SATA and preferably connected directly to the
motherboard. I prefer SATA drives for higher bit rate recording because they
are faster. Conversely, Iíve not had any problems using an ATA-100 drive
connected to a PCIE card using either Pro Tools or Sound Forge.
When is the last time you de-fragmented your record drive?
You might also want to try the Sony/Sound Forge user forum:
I go back to version 4.5 with Sound Forge, currently use version 9. If Iím
working on Mono or Stereo files and have use for the built in tools I'll use
Sound Forge. However, Sound Forge is way to limited for multi-track work or
sync to picture.
I see no need at present to upgrade to 10.
Given a choice: Pro Tools. Itís a real DAW and the industry standard here in the
US. Unfortunately, everything (including decent meters!) is a costly option.
If you prefer to work exclusively on a PC, you might want to consider Pyramix.
It's a great DAW and is as popular in Europe as Pro Tools is in the US.
