    Yes I have used Sony's Sound Forage (a.k.a. Sonic Foundry) and still do. A very nice program indeed. I understand what you would like to do and unfortunately that particular program does not allow you to use it as a standalone, special-effects processor in real time, EtoE (electronic in to electronic out).

    However, programs like Wave Lab do allow you to use its special effects section with all of its VST capability as a live processor! One of the only programs that you can do that with.

    In and out-of-the-box

    I'm afraid I don't exactly understand your question so you are correct. You're making music onstage with a hardware reverb in cathedral program mode? You want the software version to sound the same way when you record in Sound Forage? Does the software reverb named "cathedral" sound the same?? In a short answer, not exactly. All reverb's made by different manufacturers utilize different algorithms all sound different but the same. That is to say you can produce a long cathedral like reverb and they may sound similar if they're associated parameters are tweaked in a similar fashion. Damping, high frequency roll off, decay, early reflections, and such, need to come as close as possible and you must do that all by ear. That's why you have them. I'm sorry I can't offer you more than that.

    Keep trying

    If your hardware digital reverb device sounds bad in comparison to sound Forge, it's probably a horrible unit to begin with? Even inexpensive units made by companies like Alesis can sound quite nice in the "cathedral" setting. There are many other software oriented reverb programs within many different software recording programs other than sound Forge which sound amazingly good as well, so I don't believe you would be screwed without the sound Forge program. Programs like cool edit, wave lab and many other have excellent reverb programs that are very similar to the sound Forge oriented program. There are also dozens of other reverb plug-ins that are made by numerous different companies that can work with numerous different software's that sound wonderful, even better than what Sound Forge can offer.

    Go try an Alesis micro verb, it's cheap and sounds reasonable and I'm sure you would like the results from that unit.

    Springtime is coming (don't purchase a spring reverb!)
