Wavesfactory Spectre combines boosting parametric EQ features with a multi-band enhancer 25/01/18
Wavesfactory has announced Spectre, a multi-band enhancer plug-in. This is what they have to say about it...
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. Features 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:
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.
System Requirements Mac and Windows (AAX / VST / AU), 32 and 64 bit.
