Plugin Alliance and Unfiltered Audio have released SpecOps, which they bill as "dozens of plugins in one". Inside its easy-to-use interface is an armory containing 36 diverse and flexible spectral effects, ranging from subtle to extreme.
How you use these tools is limited only by your creative imagination: transform synthesizer presets with new sonic qualities, add throbbing grunge to drum loops, fatten up instrument tracks, delicately clarify full mixes, or decimate organic instruments and vocals beyond recognition to create one-of-a-kind special effects.
Among SpecOps's features:
- Powerful, multi-faceted processing has wide-ranging uses in music production, sound design and live performance.
- 36 spectral effects can be applied—three at a time—to different frequency ranges with extremely high resolution.
- Spectral effects include filters, amplitude manipulators, pitch and frequency shifters, audio freezers, data compressors, glitchy processors and a clipper—each of which can act on a different, independently adjustable frequency band.
- Additional wideband processors—two pitch shifters, a frequency shifter and Freeze effect—optionally process input signal before spectral effects are applied.
SpecOps is available for purchase — as AAX AudioSuite-, AAX Native-, AU-, VST2-, and VST3-supporting plugin formats for Mac OS X (10.8 through 10.12), Windows (7 through 10), and Pro Tools 10.3.10 (or higher) — from Plugin Alliance at an introductory promo price of $89.00 USD until October 20, 2017, rising to an MSRP of $129.00 USD thereafter.
