NAMM 2018Wavesfactory announces Spectre multi-band enhancer plug-in for Mac and Win AAX, VST & AU


Wavesfactory has announced Spectre, a multi-band enhancer plug-in for MacOS and Windows (AAX / VST / AU).

Spectre is a sound-shaping tool that combines the best features of a boosting parametric equaliser coupled with a multi-band enhancer. Spectre enables the user to introduce harmonic content from a variety of algorithms based on classic recording hardware. Adjust any of the five bands to add the audio process to just one or up to five bands, with adjustable Q the effect can go from broad to razor sharp. Spectre can be used on individual tracks, sub-mixes, the entire mix and is ideal for mastering.

Spectre does not work like a conventional equalizer, they cut or boost the volume of a band based on the audio being presented. Spectre introduces harmonic content that was not in the original recording, bringing colour and life to the sound not possible with a conventional EQ, this ability to offer almost phantom content across the audio spectrum led us to the name Spectre.


  • Enhancer / Exciter with five parallel boost-only parametric bands (Low Shelf, 3 Peak, High Shelf) with the workflow of a graphical equaliser with frequency, Q and gain parameters for each band.
  • Spectre is more versatile than a simple enhancer as you can choose from eight different saturation algorithms to get different colours:
    • Tube.
    • Tape.
    • Solid.
    • Warm Tube.
    • Class A.
    • Diode.
    • Bit.
    • Digital.
    • Additional "clean" channel that converts Spectre in a parallel boosting EQ.
  • Optional 4x and 16x oversampling modes offer pristine quality with no aliasing even with aggressive settings.
  • Spectre can process:
    • Mono/stereo signals;
    • Only left or right;
    • Mid or side channels.


  • Regular price: €99.
  • Intro price: €69 ends March 8th.
  • Release date: February 21st.
