St3pan0va has released an early alpha version (0.2) of Sp3ctr3, a free FFT-based audio-mangling VST effect plug-in for Windows.

Sp3ctr3 includes the following controls:

  • Lo cut - hard cut of lo frequencies.
  • Hi cut - hard cut of hi frequencies.
  • Blur - spectral blur - basically, degradation and noise.
  • Hold - keeps spectral peaks - like reverb on acid but not.
  • Harmonic - 0>0.5 removes integer harmonics of the detected fundamental 0.5>1 removes everything else.
  • Threshold - cuts low amplitude partials.
  • Edges - 0>0.5 removes slow-changing partials (long pure notes) 0.5>1 removes fast-changing partials (hard attack).
  • Warp - warps the frequency spectrum.
  • Band stop - centre of a hard bandstop filter.
  • Band width - width of a hard bandstop filter.
  • Delay time, level, feedback - control a standard stereo delay.
  • Pan - simple L-R balance control.
  • Gain - waveshaping gain, soft lofi distortion (not clipping) if signal peaks.
