DVD Architect Studio 4.5
Sony's DVD Architect Studio 4.5 is what you want when you want to turn your home movies, multi-media photo albums, or music compilations into more professional looking DVDs. Instead of just burning your home movies onto a DVD in any random fashion, how cool would it be to have menu options like the movies you get at your local rental store? DVD Architect Studio 4.5 gives you 44 stylish backgrounds with eye-catching menu buttons to choose from. You can personalize it even more by importing your own images, graphics, and music. Place your menu text, graphics, and buttons where you like, and use effects like blur and shadow to enhance them even more.

The easy-to-use project window allows you to drag-and-drop whatever you want to add to your project, even allowing you to mix different types of media. And, just like the latest blockbusters, you can make your movies play in either 4:3 fullscreen or 16:9 widescreen, NTSC or PAL formats, and add behind-the-scenes, bloopers, outtakes, and more. Before you make it official, use the virtual remote function to see how your project will play on a television and function in the DVD player. Satisfied? Architect Studio 4.5 supports several DVD media formats so you can share your final concept with family, friends, or send it out to professional outlets.

Sound Forge Audio Studio 9
Sound Forge Audio Studio 9 software from Sony allows you to record and edit professional quality audio on your home computer. Just plug a mic into your computer and record live instruments, vocals, or import music from other sources like vinyl, cassettes, and more. Then use the simple tools included to edit and master your recordings. Add effects, and then export them to the your MP3 player, upload them on the web, or burn your own CDs.

One unique feature of Sound Forge Audio Studio 9 is the Vocal Eraser plug-in which allows you to remove vocals from most recordings or isolate them so that you can create your own karaoke tracks. The plug-in has its own presets and gives you diverse recording situation choices.

Confused on how anything works? Exclusive "Show Me How" tutorials are always a click away to walk you through any process.
