Following its official acquisition of Sony Creative Software for audio, Magix now releases a new version of SpectraLayers Pro for Windows and Mac.

This version came about under the guidance of Robin Lobel, who created the concept and has developed every SpectraLayers Pro version from the very beginning.

The software uses realtime technologies to deliver deep audio spectrum editing. Three main principles make SpectraLayers Pro 4 one of the most innovative solutions found on the market: Real time spectral editing, direct control of spectral sample and a layer system for spectral compositing.

The new version primarily focuses on optimizations of the Audio Engine, more efficient project and layer management and cooperation with other DAWs (especially Pro Tools®). In this way, SpectraLayers Pro 4 makes possible seamless project exchange with Pro Tools® as a plug-in (AAX). Now audio files can be transferred with just one click directly from the DAW to SpectraLayers Pro, where they can be edited and re-imported back in realtime.

It is also now possible to work in the software on multiple projects in parallel. Data can be exchanged between projects quickly and easily. On the other hand, the new “layer grouping” is more than just a management tool. Precision joining and selective editing of various layers takes a huge load out of the mixing process and sound design. Frequency and harmony selection tool optimization also delivers excellent results, for example with “lock to frequency”. This function makes it possible to quickly navigate, select and specifically edit a certain frequency. This works thanks to a new algorithm, which automatically sets the areas you have selected!

Robin Lobel and MAGIX are excited about the successful cooperation and are pleased with the harmonious result: “This is the most polished release to date and improves on the foundations set by SpectraLayers Pro 3.“

SpectraLayers Pro 4 for Windows and Mac is available for purchase for 399 EUR. It is also available as part of the Audio Master Suite 2.5 bundle for 599 EUR (including Sound Forge Pro 11, Nectar Elements as well as the Mastering & Repair Suite from iZotope).
