Sony Creative Software has released SpectraLayers, the newest addition to its line of software for audio and video production. An intelligent audio editing program, SpectraLayers operates directly on waveform spectra using a wide variety of smart editing tools. Through this application, users can more accurately edit audio by graphically dividing files into discrete, user-defined layers that can be processed independently and reintegrated to achieve flawless master files.
"SpectraLayers introduces an innovative, unique workflow that redefines what can be accomplished in the professional audio editor's suite," said Dave Chaimson, vice president of global marketing for Sony Creative Software. "The level of editing precision and advanced capabilities SpectraLayers offers makes it an essential tool for industry professionals who demand the deepest audio analysis tools."
