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:
- Warm Tube.
- Class A.
- 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.
