SpectraLayers Pro 3 from Sony is an advanced spectrum editor that allows for working with the individual sounds in an audio file as if they were objects in a photograph. Using graphic representation, users can make detailed repairs with precise tools, move sounds around, reduce noise, increase clarity, or get totally creative and transform a sound file into something new and different.
For audio mastering engineers the program provides the tools for making small fixes to radical, project-wide transformations and to also repair, filter, and remix audio. Sound designers and remix artists are able to isolate individual sounds in an audio file, selecting material by frequency, and constructing new music directly on the spectral graph. Audio archivists can make old recordings sound their best.
And for the audio-for-video producer the software provides the tools needed to eliminate unwanted noise with extreme precision, apply bandwidth-limited noiseprints across entire files, or perform surgical cuts to remove isolated sonic events. Forensic specialists can pull out target sounds for analysis, while music and dialog extraction can be performed for replacement or rights management purposes.
Other features of the software include Spectral Casting/Spectral Molding, a process that uses the frequency spectrum of one layer as a cast or mold for carving an impression directly into the spectrum of a second layer. Pitch correction is also possible, and interoperability with Sound Forge Pro 11 and Sound Forge Pro Mac 2 is seamless.
Note: This item is for registered users of SpectraLayers Pro 2 who wish to upgrade to SpectraLayers Pro 3.
