DUY releases Magic Spectrum

24th July 2006

DUY has released Magic Spectrum, a mastering tool that allows you to modify frequency contents in a flexible and precise manner - any frequency content of any kind of audio material can be edited. Magic Spectrum's practical design includes a range of functions that vary from a very basic spectrum matching use to a total control over the audio spectrum, with high resolution and quality.

How does Magic Spectrum work?
The most basic utility that Magic Spectrum provides is the matching of spectrums. For example: take a track you like the sound of, and "play it" to Magic Spectrum. Then, take your track and analyse your sound. Finally, apply the sound character of the song you like to your own song, in whichever amount you like.

If you have no songs to use as a reference, you may also load any of the many included presets, analyzed from some of the best recordings of all time, or from specific-sounding masters.

Magic Spectrum can also be used as an EQ that emphasizes the results, or you can even load 4 different responses and vectorally combine these responses in the way you like, to add "more character" of one sound or more of another...

The "Advanced" mode lets you manipulate the spectrum by providing graphic editing tools that enable you to have direct access to the spectrum of the song itself.

DUY Magic Spectrum is shipping now, in two different versions:

  1. DUY Magic Spectrum: Native version for RTAS, AU, VST & MAS; €249.
  2. DUY Magic Spectrum PRO: TDM version; €349.

Magic Spectrum Pro for TDM provides basically the same functionality as Magic Spectrum. However, as an added value, the PRO version adds even higher precision in the frequency bands. Magic Spectrum PRO's process takes place in the time domain, using DUY's exclusive OFIR (Optimal Frequency Impulse Renderer) technology algorithm, allowing to render audio with extremely complex equalizations within TDM with zero-latency.

Magic Spectrum Pro for TDM is presented as a Mono process. For multi-channel applications, the plug-in is inserted as a "Multi-mono" plug-in, with the "Link" button active within Pro Tools.

Magic Spectrum for AU, RTAS, VST and MAS processes the signal within the frequency domain, using an evolution of the FFT algorithm that provides huge quality to the processing, thanks to the immensely high overlapping rate. The algorithm is processed in an accelerated manner using the vectoral unit of the processor, allowing for an extremely light load on processors.

Magic Spectrum for RTAS, Audio Units, VST and MAS is presented as a Mono and Stereo process, except for VST, which is always Stereo but allows Mono processing as well.
