Description : SpectraLayers enhances audio by displaying sounds as visual objects. You can explore, infiltrate, take and transform, working wonders in everything from audio repair and restoration to freeform sound design. The unrivaled selection tools developed over the years are now joined by new AI-driven audio extraction and restoration processes, making this the most significant version of SpectraLayers.
Artificial intelligence. Sensory integration.
Looking at sound on a spectrograph display is one thing, but being able to easily touch, sculpt, and shape what you see is what sets SpectraLayers apart. And now you have an experienced, well-trained AI partner who can recognize patterns, perform operations, and accelerate your path to perfect sound.
The basis for data processing using artificial intelligence
The manual selection tools in SpectraLayers allow you to perform everything from wide brush editing to microscopic interference. AI-enabled workflows provide even greater speed and precision, making the SpectraLayers toolbox and layer-based workflow more powerful and flexible than ever.
From pure science to free improvisation
Use the speed and precision of AI to layer your sample and create free-form mixes. Automatically split tracks into stems and stems into component parts. Quickly identify, isolate, and work on the tone, transients, and noise signatures of extracted instruments. Do you make experimental music? Get granular sound with surgical precision with SpectraLayers. It’s a freeform music creation tool… a real musical instrument.
Repair and restoration
Find and remove errors and unwanted sounds, reduce noise, repair clips, remove clicks, control transients, and more—manually or automatically—with new AI processes in SpectraLayers. Work with speed and precision and enjoy regularly restoring tracks and enhancing your sound in ways you never thought possible.
Modern audio production platforms must work in both the wave and spectral domains. Engineers need serious application power combined with the flexibility to deliver the best in creativity, accessibility and workflow. With advanced ARA 2 technology designed to bridge audio editing applications, SpectraLayers can be run inside Nuendo, Cubase, and a host of third-party applications to provide comprehensive, non-destructive visual editing right on the DAW timeline.
Use high-precision tools for ultra-detailed sound selection on the spectral display. Extract this material into independent layers for processing in SpectraLayers or anywhere in the DAW ecosystem. Mix and render or save your changes to the DAW timeline. With ARA 2 support, you can launch SpectraLayers directly in the Cubase/Nuendo waveform display for maximum real-time program integration.
Your personal path
SpectraLayers provides AI-assisted spectral editing and seamless DAW integration. The entry-level version of Elements can perform precise error correction and includes automatic noise and hum reduction processes, as well as separate AI-assisted processes, including vocal separation. The Pro version includes more comprehensive tools as well as the most sophisticated implementation of artificial intelligence. Now with 2nd generation AI and improved support for ARA 2, SpectraLayers is a standalone powerhouse and superior extension for Cubase and Nuendo, bringing the magic of SpectraLayers directly to the DAW timeline.
