Advanced selection system

What you can do with Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro

Mixing with Spectral Casting

Mixing with Spectral Casting

Use the frequency spectrum of one layer as a cast or mold for "carving an impression" directly into the spectrum of a second layer. Spectral Casting/Spectral Molding opens up unexplored new worlds of audio processing possibilities.

Sound design with Spectral Molding

Sound design with Spectral Molding

Spectral Molding offers an extensive bandwidth of sounds: The technology enables users to transfer spectral data between recordings and create an entirely new and different sound aesthetic. For instance, you can give a guitar recording the acoustic texture of vocals.

Cleaning with acoustic fingerprints

Cleaning with acoustic fingerprints

Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 9 is able to create exact prints of noise interference and then suppress them or remove them completely from the track. This technology offers you absolute precision for achieving ultra-clear audio results.

ARA2 plug-in

ARA2 plug-in

The ARA2 plug-in integrates Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 9 directly in SOUND FORGE Pro 16. Once set up, Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 9 behaves just like an independent part of the DAW and integrates essential components of the host DAW such as track colors and other elements.

Celemony Melodyne 5.2 essential

Celemony Melodyne 5.2 essential

Celemony Melodyne 5.2 essential is the perfect complement to the audio editing functions offered by SOUND FORGE Pro 16 and with its built-in ARA2 and AAX support, Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 9 is equally so. Discover the legendary tool for precise audio correction.

Vintage Effects Suite

Vintage Effects Suite

Reproduce the naturally full and warm sound of analog tools in an authentic way.

ECOX

ECOX

Ecox is a plug-in that emulates realistic tape echo sounds. You can reproduce the sound here in an authentic way that sounds as if different tape speeds were used to change the delay – with tracking variations and loss of high frequencies during tape feedback.

FILTOX

FILTOX

This filter has been developed to control frequency resonance for a modulation source. This enables you to create a characteristically analog sound and internal distortion. Cut-off frequency and resonance work together here to create synthesizer sweeps and creative drum loop distortion that sound anything but digital.

CORVEX

CORVEX

Corvex produces a refined sound tapestry of variations between analog chorus and flanger effects that goes beyond standard concepts. Give your instruments astounding acoustic depth, make them sound much fuller, or create new, multi-layered textures.

VariVerb II

VariVerb II

Room for new ideas: Create the exact reverb effect you've been looking for.

Sound Design for Drums, Vocals and Guitars

VariVerb II offers more depth and more texture for your audio. The huge range of presets for drums, vocals and guitars in this plug-in are based on a variety of algorithms and can be used not just for making improvements, but as the starting point for complex sound design.

Precisely Calculated Reflection Pattern

Use VariVerb II to create reverb based on complex reflection pattern and various software models rather than on the basis of impulse responses. Create various effects with adjustable parameters such as room, plate, spring and non-linear reverb, all based on algorithmic calculations.
