We've encountered a problem that I hope somebody can assist with.

We'd like to be able to use external signal processing equipment on audio
that we've digitized. When we make preservation copies of analog source
material, we capture a flat transfer on our audio workstation. (PC with
Sound Forge 6.0) If we want to use an external piece of equipment (e.g.
Cedar, EQ, Packburn etc.) to modify the signal we are unable to do so.
Unless I am missing something, Sound Forge cannot playback the original
file and record a new file at the same time. Our sound card (DAL CardDelux)
supports full duplex, our software apparently doesn't. I even tried playing
back a wav file with Media Player, then looping it out to an external
equalizer and then back into the computer and recording in Sound Forge, but
this creates a feedback loop.

How to you make this work? Is there other software available (PC or Mac)
that will allow this? We can't be the only people needing to do this and
I'd be interested in hearing how others do this.

Thanks,
David
