Following an exclusive deal back in September, MacRumors and Magix have again partnered to offer our readers an exclusive discount on the multimedia software maker's Sound Forge Pro Mac 3 bundle. With the discount, you can buy Sound Forge Pro Mac 3 for $229, a $328 discount on the traditional price of $557. Our earlier discount brought the price down to $249, so the new sale is a chance to get the bundle for $20 cheaper.

If you're interested, the exclusive discount will be available beginning today, November 8, and run through Thursday, November 30.


Sound Forge Pro Mac 3 is an advanced audio waveform editor that has been optimized and designed for macOS, offering users multi-channel recording and editing, mastering for music and dialogue clips, and support for high-resolution audio recording at 24 bits with sampling rates as high as 192kHz. The suite's full features are extensive -- also including customizable window layouts, file conversion automation, and the iZotope's RX Elements and Ozone Elements tools -- so make sure to head over to Magix's website for more details.

With just over two weeks until Thanksgiving in the United States, as well as Black Friday one day later, pre-Black Friday deals have begun appearing for many retailers. Best Buy has a plethora of discounts on Apple and Apple-related products that you can get your hands on right now, including sales on the iPad mini 4, 10.5-inch iPad Pro, select MacBooks, Philips Hue products, Apple Smart Keyboard, Apple Pencil, and much more.

Where are the discounts on the Apple Watch 3?
Not seeing much in the way of specific Series 3 discounts ahead of Black Friday yet. Tons of Series 1 models have been mentioned in upcoming BF sales, but so far the best thing for S3 seems to be something like Kohl's, where you can buy a 38mm GPS gold Apple Watch S3 with Pink Sand Sport Band and get $90 in Kohl's Cash. Which is obviously not great if you don't shop at Kohl's or want a gold Apple Watch.

The Mac version of Sound Forge is not worth half that discount price. There's still tons of functionality missing in the Mac version.
