What Is Spectre?
Spectre has been designed to be a sound-shaping tool that combines the best features of a boosting parametric equaliser 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. Spectre can be used on individual tracks, sub-mixes, the entire mix and for mastering.
Why The Name Spectre?
Spectre does not work like a conventional equaliser, that 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, which led them to the name Spectre.
Spectre is an Enhancer / Exciter with five parallel boost-only parametric bands (Low Shelf, 3 Peak, High Shelf) using the workflow of a graphical equaliser with frequency, Q and gain parameters for each band.
Spectre is designed to be more versatile than a simple enhancer as you can choose from eight different saturation algorithms to get different colours:
- Warm Tube.
- Class A.
There is also an additional "clean" channel that converts Spectre in a parallel boosting EQ.
Spectre has optional 4x and 16x oversampling modes intended to offer no aliasing even with aggressive settings.
Spectre can process mono/stereo signals, only left or right, mid or side channels.
Mac and Windows (AAX / VST / AU), 32 and 64 bit.
