I'm specifically interested in Spectral Delays only (delay taps differentiated according to each frequency) in this case. The best one I have is probably a patch for Max/MSP called "jg.spectdelay" (by John Gibson).

Thanks for the pointer, this one is fft based, which is a different approach than just having filtered frequency bands delayed. I bet the latter can be easily achieved in Byome for three bands. The weird stuff needs more bands…

Yes, absolutely, FFT is necessary, for a true Spectral Delay. Melda's MSpectral Delay is also FFT-based (I strongly suggest to use it in Edit mode, of course) and it's the second best one I have. The best choice, if you don't want to download the gigantic Max/MSP for any reason. I still prefer this jg.spectraldelay Max/MSP patch, though, especially when used directly on its "Max help" dedicated window. Intuitive UI and very musical results (at least, for my needs), much better, for my taste.

I dunno If NI would still do a transfer for an old SD license, but it still runs smoothly on my system. Someone might be willing to sell their license though.
i have a boxed version that is unregistered :D
bought 2 of them some years ago, installed one...worked perfect on windows 10 in flstudio .
loads of hardware for sound creation and loads of software for effects!

You could probably sell that pretty easily and for a good price. I dunno if they still will register it And activate it after their whole (dropping support of old products) debacle.

Also worth mentioning are these:
https://www.soundhack.com
yes those, the name i had forgotten, great stuff! installed only the older versions...
wonder if the payed version, what they give more.

EDIT: morphfilter, MMorph is already in my arsenal. quite good stuff, and if insert MTransformer after it....

EDIT 2: Spectral Compand seems like the one in SpecOps....
I had the PVOC kit but they did some sort of paid update thing a couple of years ago to cover a new copy protection scheme, and made it a limited time deal so to get the latest versions I would now have to buy them again so tough
Just updating to correct this - it seems, although this is still a paid update, that they still allow it at the reduced rate at least, so they must have realised that was unfair
