FEATURES


SpectraLayers Pro 3 features

A summary overview of the SpectraLayers Pro 3 feature set reflects the emergence of an audio-editing application that has truly arrived. The third edition provides a convergence of utility, usability, and performance factors that has been highly anticipated by current users and that will prove to be a game-changing experience for the newly initiated.

Three-step audio extraction

In this example, we loaded a beat loop from Iced, a Sony Sound Series sample library, into SpectraLayers Pro 3 for some quick creative deconstruction.

Selection tools

The Selection tools in SpectraLayers Pro 3 have been revised to provide more power and versatility than ever for carving precise, tailor-made selections out of the spectral graph.

SONY

Selection
The Selection Tool offers four options: Rectangular, Elliptical, Time Range, and Frequency Range. Left-click and drag to create a Rectangular, Elliptical, or Time Range selection of any size. To make a Frequency Range selection, click and drag over a frequency range of any height; releasing the mouse button will automatically expand the selection to cover the entire width of the spectral graph. Holding down the Shift key while you work allows you to create selections with any number of non-contiguous areas. Full-spectrum time range selections can also be made with the Time Cursor tool; simply hold down the Shift key and click-drag to create a selection.

SONY

Lasso
The Lasso Tool allows you to freehand-draw shapes in the spectral graph. When you close a shape, the area inside it is selected. The Polygonal Lasso Tool allows you to create selections with straight-line precision. Click once anywhere on the perimeter of your target selection in the spectral graph. Move the mouse and click to create straight lines that surround it. Establish a closed shape by double-clicking over the start point; the interior of the polygon will become selected.

SONY

Brush
The Brush Selection Tool allows you to paint selections directly in the spectral graph; simply select the tool, hold down the left mouse button, and start painting! Your selection will be established upon releasing the button. Holding down the Shift key while you work allows you to create selections with any number of non-contiguous areas.

SONY

Magic Wand
The Magic Wand Selection Tool intelligently selects defined shapes on the spectral graph. To use it, select the tool and hold it over any shape, click once to establish a selection that spans an area defined by the Magic Wand’s customizable tip, or click-hold the left mouse button and draw to expand outward. Release the mouse button to establish your selection. Holding down the Shift key while you work allows you to create selections with any number of non-contiguous areas.

SONY

Frequency

The Frequency Selection Tool can intelligently sense and trace any contiguous frequency band that runs through the spectral graph, even as its frequency changes over time. To use it, select the tool, place it over a target frequency that winds through the spectral graph, and click/draw to establish a selection.

SONY

Harmonics

The Harmonics Selection Tool is a hallmark SpectraLayers Pro 3 feature with enormous potential for making clean, complete selections of rich, complex material. In the most basic scenario, the tool is utilized by selecting it and hovering over the fundamental tone of the material targeted for selection. The tool seeks upward from the fundamental, highlighting it as well as its associated harmonic overtone series. Simply click and draw over the fundamental tone to establish a selection that isolates the target and spans its entire harmonic spectrum.

SONY

Layers Panel

The redesigned Layers Panel in SpectraLayers Pro 3 reflects the extent to which this application has been upgraded to provide significantly improved editing and workflow options. While the revised Selection Tools bring a new level of control to the editing process, the Layers Panel improves on keeping things organized, visible, and relevant.

New Waveform Display
The new Waveform Display shows selections, color-coded project layer content, relative amplitudes, and more.

Overview Bar
The Overview Bar provides graphic, color-coded information about selection range, layer program length and location, layer phase status, mute state, and marker/region positions.
