Welcome SpectraLayers!

Post by Luis Dongo » Wed Jul 03, 2019 12:25 pm

Dear Forum Members,

we are very pleased to welcome a new member to the Steinberg product family: SpectraLayers Pro 6.

SpectraLayers is a new approach to audio editing, with new concepts to transform the way you work. For the first time you can directly edit spectral data, opening advanced sonic worlds, and use innovative enhancements to traditional techniques. Visualize audio in astonishing new ways — including 3D, work with mixes as if they were tracks and integrate all of these abilities into your DAW and other tools.

Some of the key features in SpectraLayers are:

• Surgical and intuitive spectral editing with 25 real-time tools
• Advanced Selection Engine
• Selection-based effects
• The only visual transformation system for sound
• Tracks, Regions and Clips separated as Layers
• ARA 2 and AAX compatibility
• Integration of other audio editors, such as WaveLab or iZotope RX
• 12 remappable surround channels
• 2D and 3D visualization of the Spectrogram
• Native restoration effects, spectral noise reduction and reverb removal

And to welcome SpectraLayers into the Steinberg family, we are offering an introduction discount of 50% to all our customers until August 31, 2019.

Visit the SpectraLayers product page to find out more about this amazing audio editor and everything you can do with it.

All the best,
Luis Dongo

Magix are still selling the previous version, so their trial might serve to give you a good idea of the program.

I tried the Magix demo and was amazed by what it could do. it is too bad that Steinberg does not see fit to put up a trial of their own product. So I decided to buy a copy of the Steinberg version and I am well pleased with what it can do. We have a mastering project in house right now that had a badly recorded trumpet and we were able to salvage the recording using SpectralLayers. Worth the price of admission especially at 50% off.

Glad you bought it, but they have stated that a demo is forthcoming. SB always posts the release a few weeks before the demo. viewtopic.php?p=877001#p877001

One problem has developed. I cannot use the VST3 plugin in Wavelab. It gives me an onscreen note that it cannot find the .DLL

Spectral Layers as a stand alone works GREAT!!!

Only with WL can a Steinberg Plug in not work with its own host DAW. Does someone have a solution??? Thanks in advance!

Hi, Wavelab does not support ARA, so it won't work in this context. Right now the following hosts supports ARA: Cubase 10.0.30, Nuendo 10.1, Reaper, Studio One 4, Bandlab Cakewalk.

Is any progress being made on this problem or do we have to wait until WL 10? Thanks for any info.

WaveLab 10 will have a good interaction to SpectraLayer, but there is nothing planned for WaveLab 9.5.

In WaveLab 10, SpectralLayers support is achieved through new functions, in the audio editor, and audio montage. And I think this works nicely.
