Audiofile has released a major update to Spectre, the real-time audio analysis suite for OS X. The new version is available for 50% off the original price for a limited time. Triumph, the Audio Designer application, has also been updated, to v2.3.1.
With version 1.7, Spectre has been rewritten from the ground up to support the latest loudness standards as well as making it even more powerful and beautiful.

- Greatly improved performance and stability.
- Fully optimized for Retina displays.
- Audio bundles enable the creation of groups of channels for audio input hardware, making configuration even easier.
- Comprehensive full-screen support.
- Meter configuration is now built into each meter.
- Traces have their own spectral analysis settings.
