Am I eligible for soundforge pro 14?

In the last live stream Gary said everyone who got vegas pro 18 would get soundforge pro 14. I bought vegas pro 18 during the get 17 now get 18 later deal. Should I be getting soundforge pro 14 and if so how would I go about it. I'll be honest I've had soundforge pro 10 for years and i think i used it once or twice for a couple things it could do that vegas couldn't. So I'm not chomping at the bit or anything, but if I could get it for free I kinda want it.

Sound Forge Pro 14 was not included in the VPro Edit 17 + 18 offer. It replaces DVD Architect in current purchases of VPro 18 "classic" and Suite.

Where is the link to download SoundForge 14? I got the VP18 upgrade a while ago and no trace of SF14?

The order confirmation email should have the necessary links and serial numbers.

See the download links in section 6 here

No SF Pro 14 with the VP 18 Edit purchase. See also here.

@vkmast I also bought VP 18 during that deal and I received an e-mail when VP 18 was released that contains a serial number for SF Pro 14. I also remember that the advertisement for VP 17/18 that I got when starting an older version of VP mentioned SF Pro 14 (but that wasn't as clear at the website). Also that wouldn't make sense if SF Pro 14 is contained in the Pro packet to replace DVD Architect and you wouldn't get it when upgrading to VP 18 using the mentioned deal.

@max8 we are talking here about the VEGAS Pro Edit purchase options. Unlike Pro "classic" and Suite purchase options VP 17 Edit did not include DVD Architect and currently VP 18 Edit does not include Sound Forge Pro 14. More e.g. here.

Oh, did I miss something? From where did you know? (At least the OP marked it as an answer...)

TBH damn near everything I tried to do in soundforge pro 10 I was able to do in vegas pro. One exception was canceling out lyrics in songs, but even that wasn't super great. I'm sure it can do more I'm not aware of but since vegas pro started off as audio software its sound editing is better than most video editors so I thought of soundforge as a less expensive software meant for people who were mostly interesting in editing sound. I don't think it compliments vegas pro very well, but i've only used the DVD authoring software one time so I guess I like it better than that. Maybe next time I'll get the pro package to update my soundfforge if I can find something to use it for.

Apples and oranges.. SF is a multi-channel editing software, Vegas is multi-track. Opening an event or file in SF from within VP is indispensable for surgical edits and fixes that can not be done in VP.

so thats why you can pseudo eliminate vocals from tracks, because you can target the specific channel
