Audiofile Engineering releases Spectre 1.5 real-time multi-analyzer

Audiofile Engineering Spectre

Audiofile Engineering has released version 1.5 of Spectre, a real-time multi-analyzer for Mac OS X.

First-time users and existing fans alike have plenty to discover in the newest version of Spectre, the real-time multi-analyzer from Audiofile Engineering.

Developed exclusively for Mac OS X, Spectre 1.5 not only offers versatile and precise tools for examining live audio, but also makes those tools simpler and more approachable than ever before.

New features include an Inspector window that reduces desktop clutter, additional metering and filtering options, and a specially priced Spectre Starter licensing option designed for beginners and students.

Changes in Spectre v1.5

  • Design Improvements – Spectre 1.5 features beautifully redesigned meter windows, facilitating a quick and powerful workflow.
  • Performance Improvements – Numerous improvements to the meters, performance and stability upgrades, a greatly improved manual activation process for computers that aren’t online, updated Support window and many more.
  • Inspector – Designed to streamline your workflow, the new Inspector window allows you to manage the Trace and Settings properties of all your meters in one window.
  • Redesigned Player – Not only did we give the Player a fresh new look, it now natively supports FLAC and Ogg Vorbis files!
  • Leq Meter – Requested, and here at last! The Leq meter measures the energy of a section of audio, often referred to as the “loudness.” It’s unlike the level meters that show you the volume of your audio at that very moment. Instead, it takes an average over time so you can get an idea of how much “energy” is implied during a range of time.
  • And That’s Not All… – New features in Spectre 1.5 also include A/B/C-weighted filters, Leq filters, calibration for VU and BBC Meters, Form Factor and Crest Factor measurements in the Numerical Meter, gain control for individual traces, the ability to activate/deactivate individual traces, autozoom in the Lissajous Meter and more.

Spectre for Mac OS X is available to purchase for $99 USD. The Spectre Starter version is available for $49 USD.

NuGen Audio updates Stereopack, includes RTAS and Audiosuite mono-to-stereo versions

NuGen Audio Stereoplacer

NuGen Audio has released updates for the plug-ins included in the Stereopack, suite of a stereo enhancement, focusing and restoration plug-ins.

Monofilter, Stereoizer and Stereoplacer have all been updated to include RTAS and Audiosuite mono-to-stereo versions of the plug-ins. A mouse-click issue has also been resolved in the AU when used with Bias Peak.

Stereopack 2 features

  • Stereoizer – Developed for and tested by professional audio engineers, Stereoizer adds natural sounding width and enhancement to any audio recording, mono or stereo, leaving the inherent character of the original source intact. Quite simply Stereoizer makes your audio more coherent, highly polished and spatially balanced without adding artificial reverberation, chorusing or delay.
  • Monofilter – Used and trusted by producers the world over, MONOFILTER grabs hold of your bass and secures it solidly within your mix. Intuitive controls allow you to quickly anchor the power, whilst retaining the essential character and perceived spatial characteristics.
  • Stereoplacer – The pan control has come of age. Now you can adjust the stereo balance where you want to. Gone are the days when making an improvement in one area causes problems with another – choose the frequencies you want to fix and move them, leaving the rest of the stereo image intact.

Stereopack 2 is available to purchase for PC and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) priced at $199 USD.

Elysia releases alpha compressor plugin

Elysia alpha compressor plugin

Elysia has released the alpha compressor plugin, the software reincarnation of its famous mastering compressor.

It gives you a painstaking emulation of the sound and features the hardware is known and popular for – programmed by the code experts from Brainworx.

But not only the final stage of mastering will profit big time from this ultimate dynamics processor. In fact, the compression section alone is such a useful tool that we have decided to include a dedicated mixing version with a reduced interface. You might want to use this on every single track of your DAW…

alpha compressor features

  • Integrated M/S Matrix – Mid/Side and stereo processing modes.
  • Auto Fast – Perfect attack and release in any situation.
  • Feed Forward & Feedback – Two selectable compressor characteristics.
  • Sidechain Filter – Frequency selective compression.
  • Parallel Compression – Mixing direct and compressed signals.
  • Soft Clip Limiter – More headroom, more loudness.
  • Audio Filter – Tweaking the sonic structure easily.
  • Warm Mode – Instant signal coloration.

The alpha compressor plugin is available to purchase for PC and Mac (TDM/RTAS/VST/AU), priced at the introductory price of 169 EUR until 31 December, 2010 (regular price 199 EUR, prices excl. VAT).
