This is a one-of-a-kind EQ that I adore. When a plugin applied to a song just doesn't cut it and automating is unintuitive, that's the time to reach for Spectro. It's one of my secret weapons for precision de-essing and intermittent EQ problems. It has saved me hours of grief on many occasions.
One of the most useful plugins I have, even over paid for ones. You have to be a bit careful as you can kill a mix with this, but used thoughtfully you can get near pro results. Each individual element is a great tool in itself. Don't expect an instant result with this. You need to get a feel for each element to get the best results. I don't even recommend using the presets. Just feel your way. Maybe start with getting the meters to peak around 2 DB and see where that takes you.
I've never used a reverb which makes it as easy to dial in a lovely sound so quickly. It has replaced Valhalla Room (which is great) as my go-to-verb. I'd rate Oril River highly even if it were not free. The developer really should charge for it.
Really really good, amazing for surgical cutting and the high and low pass are really something special i mean when its gone (as in a frequancy cut) its really gone. Please fix the GUI issue and you have a 10/10.
This free bundle is just insanely great. What MeldaProduction is giving away for free is hundreds of dollars worth of processing.
The compressor alone is a fantastic tool, it is the one that taught me the most about how to set up a compressor to do what I want it to.
The analyzers are essential tools in my studio as is the equalizer.
I don't use all of them, but some of them I use on every single project I create.
With the $50 registration, you get among other things, upsampling, which is a worthwhile feature. Also, it helps out the developer, who is doing the recording world a great favor by putting these out for free.
The pitch corrector, for heaven's sake, is great to have, and it will do the Cher/T-Pain as well as more subtle correction.
They are all so feature rich that I have used some of them for years without realizing their full potential.
When you see the controls it looks like it has just what you need to make a great sound, a great layout and nice feature set. Selectable patterns for ER and Reverb, mix lock, bypassing sections, and a nice 3 Band EQ (although this would sound better on the input since there is modulation).
However, ranges are wide open and not properly scaled, changing times makes clicks, and in general sounds pretty metallic and unnatural but not in an immediately musical way. Thankfully it's free. :)
