Description: Steinberg released a new version of SpectraLayers Pro, designed for editing the spectral component of audio tracks. The application can be used at certain stages of mixing / mastering, as well as to restore the sound information of tracks.
Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro has a new engine, an improved interface with additional windows, new tools for spectrum editing, a redesigned hint system and support for the ARA format, thanks to which the program can be used in Cubase and Nuendo workstations. The application allows you to change the structure of the audio signal through visual graphic editing. Users can adjust specific areas / portions of the spectrum and draw with special tools.
A total of 22 different tools are available in SpectraLayers (sets of brushes, paints, etc.), as well as editors for frequency, amplitude, time. At the same time, the ability to preview the sound, taking into account the changes made for each separate area, is available. Other features include: auto-highlighting, layer creation, a set of effects for signal restoration, ASE compatibility, sound protection from changes, support for integration with Melodyne and WaveLab.
New in version :
In ARA mode it is now possible to apply changes to a clip that doesn’t start at zero on the DAW timeline.
Closing dialogs within Cubase no longer renders the ARA component randomly unresponsive (macOS only).
Undoing the creation of a new layer in ARA mode no longer results in no layer being active.
Undoing the creation of a new layer while a group is selected and the transform tool is active no longer renders the application unreliable.
Loading or closing VST 3 plug-ins no longer renders the application unreliable.
VST 3 plug-ins are no longer displayed incorrectly.
The Preserve Formant option in the Transform tool no longer causes severe audio artifacts.
A meaningful error message appears if you install SpectraLayers 7 while the eLicenser Control Center is open in the background.
Some processes, such as Heal and Unmix Stems, no longer render the application unreliable (older macOS systems with CPUs without AVX support).
Loading a project in Cubase or Nuendo where SpectraLayers 6 was loaded as an ARA extension no longer renders the application unreliable.
A warning message will appear when running out of disk space.
Failure of loading some VST 3 plug-ins no longer renders the application unreliable.
Opening a plug-in after closing another will no longer inherit the parameter changes from the first one which could render the application unreliable.
Closing the dialogs of some VST 3 plug-ins no longer renders the application unreliable.
Applying or cancelling the Imprint process when only one layer exists in the project no longer renders the application unreliable.
Application no longer freezes during processing or loading of files after just a few progress bars have been shown (macOs only).
The Transport function in the Edit menu now works as expected.
