Steinberg Releases SpectraLayers Elements 6


Steinberg has announced the availability of SpectraLayers Elements 6, a streamlined version that they say comprises a simplified audio spectrum editing system with fewer tools, processing capabilities and parameters than the existing Pro edition. Here's the story in their own words...

SpectraLayers is known for its different approach to audio editing: audio is visualized in the spectral domain, allowing users to manipulate its spectral data in many different ways.

Alongside the Pro edition, SpectraLayers Elements 6 is now available, with a wide range of enhancement capabilities across two audio channels, at a maximum sample rate of 96 kHz. With the feature set in Elements, users have everything required for critical repair and restoration work.

Head of Pro Audio Timo Wildenhain commented: “This solid version of SpectraLayers provides an affordable possibility for users to benefit from the powerful tools that only SpectraLayers has to offer.”

SpectraLayers Elements 6 integrates seamlessly into every ARA 2 compatible DAW, such as Nuendo and Cubase. SpectraLayers Elements 6 comes with many of the features newly introduced in SpectraLayers Pro 6, including visible fade masks, redesigned selection tools and the new Move tool to transform audio intuitively by grabbing layers to move or scale them.

“I use SpectraLayers every day in my workflow. It’s such a time-saver when using samples, I always want the original sample to sound ‘correct’ before I start adding color and effects to it. It’s really easy to do in SpectraLayers, I can visually see what’s wrong with it and just fix it. I always bring the acapella in SpectraLayers to fix resonances and balance the harmonics. To be honest I can’t understand how I did it before. You know those annoying ringing frequencies on just some words? I can fix those in just seconds, such a time-saver!” said Stefan Engblom, producer and one half of Dada Life.
