THE POWER OF A REAL-TIME METERING SUITE
Spectre is the leading multi-instrument, real-time audio analyzer for OS X, packed with 20 different multi-channel and multi-trace meters including Level, VU, Spectrograph, Oscilloscope and Spectrogram.
Spectre makes metering as beautiful as it is useful. Design, speed, accuracy and dependability are all central to Spectre’s design, placing it among the most powerful real-time analyzers in the industry. And, at a fraction of the price of most tools like it, Spectre is ideal for students and professionals alike.
Spectre is mind-blowingly powerful and stable. With this update, we’ve completely rebuilt Spectre's foundation, significantly increasing its responsiveness and performance.
RIGHT ON TARGET
Spectre has always been incredibly accurate, but the enhanced performance in version 1.7 makes your meters more detailed and responsive, providing an even clearer picture of your audio.
Spectre's updated meters are now even easier to configure. Additionally, they are now Retina-ready and fully optimized for OS X Mavericks, including improved full-screen and multiple display support.
PRODUCERS & ENGINEERS
From monitoring phase relationships and stereo width to quantifying loudness to visualizing the frequencies of your mixes, Spectre provides producers and engineers with a true and thorough analysis of their audio, helping to prepare mixes for all listening environments—online streaming, stereo or 5.1 surround, stadiums, you name it.
POST & BROADCAST ENGINEERS
Use Spectre’s meters to comply with industry standards, both general (Level and Loudness) and highly specific (EBU R-128 and ITU-R BS.1770). Level, Lissajous, Correlation, LU and LU History meters are all essential tools for removing clipping, perfecting how a voice-over performance sits in the mix and ensuring your audio is ready to be heard by the world.
COMPOSERS & SOUND DESIGNERS
Whether you’re designing sound effects for a game or arranging a full orchestra, Spectre allows you to visualize and craft your soundscapes, both musical and non-musical. Perfect the frequency responses of the low rumbles. Isolate and highlight that solo violinist. Perfect the atmosphere you’re crafting by understanding even the most minute details of your audio.
FILMMAKERS & VIDEO EDITORS
Monitor and normalize audio loudness from the beginning to the end of your editing project. Or go even further and use the Correlation and Lissajous meters to ensure capability with mono televisions. Best of all, Spectre’s individual metering windows allow you to enable only the most relevant meters, keeping your workspace clutter-free.
