Spektro Audio updates Spektro Nucleation for Max for Live to v2.0

Spektro Audio has released version 2.0 of Spektro Nucleation, a Max For Live device that functions as a waveshaper and bitcrusher.

This major (and free!) update brings some exciting new features to our beloved waveshaping device.

Spektro Nucleation

Changes in Spektro Nucleation v2.0

  • gen~ processing: During versions 1.0x, Nucleation, like most MaxforLive devices, processed sound in blocks of samples. Now, in version 2.0, it upsamples the signal by 2x and then uses the gen~ technology to process sample-by-sample! This new processing method results in less digital artifacts, less aliasing and a more pleasing timbre for your sound.
  • New controls for you to shape your sound even further: offset and shift! Even tho the Offset control already existed in the previous versions, it now works differently due to the new gen~ processing method. The new Shift control allows you to shift the waveform forward in time, completely changing the sound.

Spektro Nucleation is available to purchase for $5 USD. A free lite edition is available to download.
