MAGIX Entertainment ANR007279EDU overview

  • 1Description

SpectraLayers Pro 4 from MAGIX Entertainment 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.

The software provides audio mastering engineers with the tools for making small fixes or radical, project-wide transformations to their 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.

Audio-for-video producers have the options to remove isolated sonic events and eliminate unwanted noise with extreme precision, by applying bandwidth-limited noiseprints across entire audio files. 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 include pitch correction as well as 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. Furthermore, SpectraLayers Pro 4 works seamlessly with Avid Pro Tools and Sound Forge Pro, among other DAWs.

Note: This product is an educational discounted version available to qualified students, faculty/staff, and accredited academic institutions only. Proof of current educational status is required.

What's New

  • Works seamlessly with Avid Pro Tools – Launch Spectralayers from Pro Tools, work with spectral editing, and export edited audio back to the Pro Tools timeline with sample-accurate precision
  • Multi-Project Management: Work on multiple projects simultaneously in new tabs, and easily switch between them
  • Improved performance as a standalone
  • Add various levels to virtual groups in the mix – Separate these by color from the rest and subdivide even more
  • Faster Lock to Frequency selection – Lets you edit only the preselected frequencies in the full spectrum
  • Offers innovative editing options such as spectral compositing, with reinterpreted image and video production technology
  • Edit frequency spectrum in real time for increased speed – All changes can be previewed and visualized immediately
  • Switch to 3D spectral view with more ease

Audio Editing

Layers Panel
  • Keep your project in view at all times with the Layers panel
  • Color Coded Layers: Every layer’s spectral graph is tagged with its own unique color, which can be changed instantly at any time 
  • Group Layers: Create mixed down virtual groups from different layers – groups can be separated by color, muted or played back solo
  • Drag to Re-Order: Layers can now be dragged into any order you like
  • Floating Panels: Layers, Channels, and History panels can be anchored in the SpectraLayers Pro workspace, or they can float over the workspace or on a secondary monitor
  • Waveform Display: Waveform Display shows selections, color-coded project layer content, relative amplitudes, and more
  • Overview Bar: Overview Bar provides graphic, color-coded information about selection range, layer program length and location, layer phase status, mute state, and marker/region positions
3D Displace
  • Provides visualizations of spectral audio data
  • Shows amplitude envelopes of any sound in isolation, and relative amplitude power relationships in projects with multiple audio channels or tracks
  • Use joystick control on Displacement Pad for changing the 3D view with continuous access, for smooth 3D workflow
  • Time and Pitch Manipulation: Sound can be freely transposed by using the Select, Move, and Scale tools
  • Frequency Range Display Options: Toggle your view to display audio frequency ranges plotted on your choice of logarithmic scales. Options include the popular mel scale, Bark scale, ERB (Equivalent Rectangular Bandwidth), and MIDI-logarithmic
  • Sketch Out Noise: Frequencies and noise can be drawn directly into the spectral display

Sound Design & Mixing

Spectral Casting / Spectral Molding
  • Use the frequency spectrum of one layer as a cast or a mold for carving an impression directly into the spectrum of a second layer, for creative mixing techniques and sophisticated sound design
  • Spectral molding uses frequencies to materialize crosses between recordings. For example, imagine a guitar recording with an acoustic texture of vocals
Noise Reduction Process
  • Open the audio file, extract the elements you need, and leave the noise behind
  • Perform noise reduction using customized noiseprints containing multiple frequency bands of any width
Precise Repairs
  • Remove unwanted noises and artifacts with ease, while leaving surrounding audio data completely intact
Isolate Events
  • Separate music and dialogue into individual component layers
Pitch Correction
  • Perform pitch correction on user-selected components of an audio file


Selection Tools
  • Offers four options – Rectangular, Elliptical, Time Range, Frequency Range
Harmonics Selection Tool
  • Hallmark SpectraLayers feature – for making clean, complete selections of rich, complex material
Brush Selection Tool
  • Allows you to paint selections directly in the spectral graph
Frequency Selection Tool
  • Intelligently sense and trace any contiguous frequency band that runs through the spectral graph, even as frequency changes over time
Magic Wand Selection Tool
  • Intelligently selects defined shapes on the spectral graph
Lasso Tool
  • Allows you to draw freehand shapes in the spectral graph
Retouch Tools
  • Amplify, Clone, and Erase tools can be used to edit audio on any layer at any time – assist with critical repair and restore operations, creative sound design work, and fun experimentation
