In this week's Friday Free Plug-in slot we are featuring a free Spectrum Analyser plug-in from Voxengo, who as well as being well known for their VST and AU plug-ins also make an increasing number of AAX Native plug-ins for Pro Tools.
Span is a flexible, configurable FFT Spectrum Analyser and metering plug-in. It offers FFT block sizes from 64 to 65,536 so finding the right compromise between latency and resolution for your particular computer is easy. The Hold function allows detailed examination of spectrums and multichannel support up to 7.1. Built-in K System metering is also included.
- Fast Fourier transform spectrum analyser
- Stereo, mid-side, surround spectrum analyser
- Stereo correlation meter
- K level meter
SPAN provides you with a very flexible “mode” system which you can use to setup your spectrum analyser preferences. You can specify Fourier block size in samples, FFT window overlap percentage, spectrum's visual slope. Besides that, you can choose to display a secondary spectrum of the desired type (e.g. real-time maximum, all-time maximum). Spectrum can be smoothed out visually for an easier examination.
SPAN supports multi-channel analysis and can be set to display spectrums from two different channels or channel groups at the same time. Spectrum's colour can be chosen to taste.
SPAN also features output level metering with adjustable ballistics and integration time, K-system metering (including calibration K-system metering). SPAN displays level metering statistics, headroom estimation and clipping detection. Correlation metering is available as well.
This AAX plug-in is for Mac OS X version 10.6 and later, universal binary (32-bit and 64-bit Intel processor support) and for 32 and 64-bit hosts on Windows. This plug-in requires ProTools 12 to run.
