product description

Advanced audio spectrum editor.

In SpectraLayers Pro 3, you can work with the individual sounds in an audio file just as if they were objects in a photograph. Make detailed repairs with precise tools. Move sounds around, reduce noise and clutter, increase clarity, or get totally creative and transform a sound picture into something new and different. The spectral editing experience is, literally, sound as vision. Transcend the waveform display and refine your vision with SpectraLayers Pro 3.

What can I do with SpectraLayers Pro 3?
Enjoy seamless interoperability with Sound Forge Pro 11 and Sound Forge Pro Mac 2.5.

Spectral Casting/Spectral Molding
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.

Noise Reduction
Perform noiseprint-based 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.

Remix audio
Divide audio into component parts for processing and remixing.
What's new in SpectraLayers Pro 3
SpectraLayers Pro 3 uses the core concepts of its predecessor as the foundation for a reimagined experience in audio spectrum editing. The new features rundown provides a multitude of discussion points, but the way they all work together will leave you speechless.
Layers Panel Redesign
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.
  • Color-coded layers - In SpectraLayers Pro 3, every layers spectral graph is tagged with its own unique color. Colors can be changed instantly at any time.
  • Drag to re-order - Layers can now be dragged into any order you like.
  • Floating panels - The Layers, Channels, and History panels can now be anchored in the SpectraLayers Pro 3 workspace, or they can float over the workspace or on a secondary monitor.
  • Double-click fader reset to 0dB - Added by popular demand.
Selection tools redesign
The Selection Tools panel has been significantly upgraded to provide more power and versatility than ever for carving precise, tailor-made selections out of the spectral graph.

New waveform display/overview bar
SpectraLayers Pro 3 has a new Waveform Display that updates instantly while you work. Important attributes of your spectral editing scenario are clearly shown here in waveform context, including cursor position, the current selection, color-coded project layer content, and all relative amplitudes. Above the timeline and always visible, the Overview Bar provides graphic, color-coded information about a wide variety of project status attributes including selection range, layer phase status, and more.

Displacement pad
The 3D Displace feature in SpectraLayers Pro 3 provides spectacular, intricate visualizations of spectral audio data. In 3D Displace Mode, editors can explore the amplitude envelopes of any sound in isolation, and the relative amplitude power relationships that exist in projects with multiple audio channels or tracks.

SpectraLayers Pro 3 features a new way to access 3D Displace Mode: the Displacement Pad, a joystick-like control that provides instant access to the rich, detailed world of multidimensional audio spectrum data. Simply grab the control and slide it over the crosshairs to get the view you want, and double-click to return to the standard view. The Displacement Pad is always active and available, which means that you can access 3D visualizations without losing focus on your editing tools. The new SpectraLayers Pro 3 color scheme makes the 3D Displacement feature even more useful, as every layer can now be assigned its own unique color on the spectral graph.

Audio scrubbing
Use the cursor to scrub audio in both directions.

Faster processing
Engine performance is upgraded yet again for SpectraLayers Pro 3. The new logic and comprehensive CPU support translates into pure speed and silky smooth program response.

24-bit/192 kHz performance
Now available in SpectraLayers Pro 3.

Preferences Panel
The new Preferences panel makes SpectraLayers Pro 3 configuration and personalization easy.
  • Device - Select your audio device, route your hardware I/O, set your buffer size, and map input and output channels to conform to a wide variety of surround-sound scenarios; a smart remapping feature is available to automatically make assignments.
  • Display - Customize your color scheme and choose your default scales here.
  • Paths - Set your work paths, logging, and history/recovery options here.
  • Keyboard - Create your keyboard command profile here; more than 100 commands are available for customization.
