Voxengo SPAN

Voxengo has released version 2.3 of SPAN, a free real-time “fast Fourier transform” audio spectrum analyzer plug-in for Windows and Mac.

For the most part it was derived from Voxengo GlissEQ dynamic parametric equalizer and reproduces its spectrum analysis functionality.

Changes in SPAN v2.3

  • Right/left signal power difference readout added.
  • “Filled Spectrum” spectrum display mode switch added.
  • Level meter’s “density mode” improved.
  • Control surface crosshair option added (can be switched off in the global options).

SPAN for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available as a free download.

Analog Box, audio synthesizer / visual programming environment now open source

Andyware Analog Box

Andyware has announced that Analog Box 2 is now available as open source software.

Analog Box is an open-source, circuit based, modular software synthesizer. You put sound objects on the screen, connect them together, listen and adjust. When you find something you like, you can record it to a wav file, or just save the circuit and play it again later.

ABox is somewhat like the vintage synth’s of the ’70′s in that there are separate modules with lots of patch cords, knobs, buttons and displays. But you also get the computational ability offered by modern CPU’s. Features like FFTs, Differentials and Digital Control open up realms of sound design never dreamt of before. With the advanced capabilities offered by VSTi, USB/HID, MIDI and Directshow you could conceivably play your favorite video soundtrack through a plugin adjusted by a glove controller.

Analog Box 2 is available under the GNU GPL v3 license.

Crysonic

Crysonic has announced the imminent release of Version 4 of their flagship product Spectralive NXT and it will available by mid February for Mac OSX and PC in all native formats.

Amongst many new features Spectralive NXT V4 HD will now be a native 64-Bit plug-in for both PC and Mac as well as offering 32-Bit compatibility.

Spectralive NXT V4 HD has been re-coded for speed providing at least up to 30% better CPU usage together with many new features such as a full 3D high-resolution Real-Time FFT Spectrum waveform display (there is also the option to use anaglyph red/blue glasses ) and a Spectrogram display enabling precise monitoring of the effected audio, including many other new features and improvements. Spectralive V4 HD now works in 2 switchable modes between Simple and Advanced GUI settings giving the user the ability to choose the mode that best suits their requirements.

Spectralive V4 also increases the number of methods by which the user can convert a mono signal such as vocals to a true stereo signal using new proprietary algorithms attaining exceptional and outstanding results. The included 11 Band Look-ahead Soft Peak limiter /EQ /Maximizer with intelligent clip warning assistant has also been re-coded for finer control, CPU efficiency and enhanced quality. A Final Master Clipping prevention system ensures your audio does not distort and this can be switched on or off. More features to be announced until the launch date so stay tuned.

Taking the lead from the very popular previous Spectralive plug-in, SPECTRALIVE V4 HD will be available to purchase on-line from the crysonic website by the middle of February 2011 for Mac OSX Universal Binary, VST and PC VST formats as a native 64-Bit plugin.

Faber Acoustical Electroacoustics Toolbox

Faber Acoustical has released Electroacoustics Toolbox 3.0, a modularized, multi-channel dynamic signal analyzer and data acquisition platform for Mac.

It brings powerful new tools to the Macintosh platform for multi-channel, audio-band data acquisition and real-time analysis of electrical, acoustical, and electroacoustic signals and systems. It enables precise measurements of acoustic quantities, such as equivalent and time-weighted sound levels, as well as acoustic and electroacoustic systems, such as listening rooms and loudspeakers. The software is designed to work with any Mac-compatible audio hardware and supports multiple channels of 8, 16, 24, or 32-bit data with sample rates as high as the hardware will support.

Changes in Electroacoustics Toolbox 3.0

  • Version 3 sports an improved user interface.
  • User preferences are available for individual tools.
  • Default audio device configurations, including channel labels, units, and sensitivity can be saved.
  • Virtual input channels can be added to audio input devices. Two-channel signal arithmetic (add, subtract, multiply) is now supported.
  • Arbitrary FFT lengths may be specified in FFT-based analysis tools.
  • Sound Level Meter and Octave Analyzer tools support percentile-exceeded sound levels.
  • Extended low-frequency support has been added to the Octave Analyzer.
  • The Spectrogram supports log frequency scales and real-time 3D spectrogram display.
  • Version 3 includes various other improvements over previous versions.
  • The Toolbox may now be purchased and maintained through the Mac App Store.

Electroacoustics Toolbox 3.0 for Mac is available to purchase for $599 USD.

Voxengo SPAN, audio spectrum analyzer updated to v2.2

Voxengo SPAN

Voxengo has announced the release of version 2.2 of SPAN, a real-time “fast Fourier transform” audio spectrum analyzer plug-in for Windows and Mac.

SPAN provides you with a very flexible “mode” system which you can use to setup your sound analysis preferences. You may specify Fourier block size in samples, FFT window overlap percentage, spectrum’s visual slope. Beside that you can choose to display secondary spectrum of a desired type (e.g. real-time maximum, all-time maximum). Spectrum can be visually smoothed out for an easier examination.

Changes in SPAN v2.2

  • Correlation meter values around -1 are now displayed correctly in the “density” mode.
  • Statistics “reset” function now resets statistics of all channels correctly.
  • K-metering modes now use fixed 600ms RMS and release time constants.
  • Additional visual look variation settings added.
  • Underlay color selection was removed – group’s defined color is used now.
  • “Hide Meters and Stats” switch added.
  • Spectrum display is now more precise in high-frequency region.

SPAN is available to download as a freeware effect plug-in for Windows and Mac (VST/AU).

Expert Sleepers updates Spectral Conquest to v1.0.1

Expert Sleepers Spectral Conquest

Expert Sleepers has released version 1.0.1 of Spectral Conquest, an effect plug-in that lets you directly manipulate the frequency spectrum of audio signals.

The incoming signal is analysed via a FFT (Fast Fourier Transform), resulting in the familiar spectrum plot where the full audio spectrum is split into a number of narrow frequency bands. The outgoing audio is then regenerated by an Inverse FFT. The interesting bit is that the plug-in lets you modify the frequency spectrum in between.

Changes in Spectral Conquest v1.0.1

  • Improvements to the interactive painting of dense spectral data.
  • (VST versions) Fixed issues with slow GUI updates when running scripts or painting spectral data.

Spectral Conquest is available to purchase as an effect plug-in for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) for $29 USD. The plug-in is also available as part of the Ultimate Bundle for $155 USD, and the Creative Effects Bundle for $55 USD.

The outgoing audio is then regenerated by an Inverse FFT. The interesting bit is that the plug-in lets you modify the frequency spectrum in between.

Spectral Conquest allows you to modify the spectrum in two ways:

  • By setting a multiplier for each frequency band. You can simply draw out the multipliers in the GUI.
  • By applying a script to the spectrum. Some basic scripts are included with the plug-in to perform operations such as filtering and gating, but you can also write scripts yourself to do whatever you like.

Spectral Conquest is available to purchase as an effect plug-in for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) for $29 USD. The plug-in is also available as part of the Ultimate Bundle for $155 USD, and the Creative Effects Bundle for $55 USD.

A demo version can be downloaded from the Expert Sleepers website. It is fully functional, except that it will time-out after 15 minutes of use. Simply reloading the plug-in resets the time-out.
