SIR Audio Tools announces the release of SpectrumAnalyzer, a spectrum analyzer plugin which displays the spectral content of your audio material, helping you create a better mix. SpectrumAnalyzer comes in two editions, a free and a full version.
SpectrumAnalyzer is available for 32- and 64-bit Mac OS X and Windows in Audio Unit, AAX, VST and VST3 plugin formats. It has a FFT (Fast-Fourier-Transform) and an analog-style (parallel band-pass IIR filter) engine, both of which can run simultaneously.
Intelligent peak-detection automatically detects resonant frequency peaks in the signal. The snapshot function easily saves the current state of your analyzer, so you can compare the spectral profile of your current project with other songs. SpectrumAnalyzer also includes a VU-Meter (with peak and RMS measurement) and a stereo correlation meter.
The auxiliary feature makes it possible to send audio from one SpectrumAnalyzer instance into other instances, allowing users to set up aux-sends and switch between them as input sources. For example, you have different subgroups and want to see the spectrum of all of them in one SpectrumAnalyzer instance: put a single SpectrumAnalyzer instance on every track and activate the aux-send. Now you can comfortably switch between these aux-channels in your master SpectrumAnalyzer instance. In the full version, you can open up to 4 slots in one plugin instance.
SpectrumAnalyzer adjustment options include:
—FFT-size & window.
—Number of bands/filter-steepness and bandwidth (analog style bandpass analyzer).
—Time resolution & release speed.
—Optional peak hold and intelligent peak detection.
—Spectral RMS with adjustable integration.
—Mid and side signal detection.
—Adjustable Colors, two different spectral smoothing algorithms.
—Display range and slope/dB.
—Adjustable GUI size and scaling.
—Optional gradient and shadow effects.
The full version has an introductory price of 38€ / USD $44. It can also be purchased in the “StandardCLIP + SpectrumAnalyzer Bundle” for only 39€ / USD $45.
Registering for the SIR Audio Tools newsletter will also give users a 25% discount coupon, which can be used to purchase SpectrumAnalyzer and the bundle.
