    Following its official acquisition of Sony Creative Software for audio, MAGIX now releases a new version of SpectralLayers Pro for Windows and Mac. This version came about under the guidance of Robin Lobel, who created the concept and has developed every SpectraLayers Pro version from the very beginning. The software uses realtime technologies to deliver deep audio spectrum editing. Three main principles make SpectraLayers Pro 4 one of the most innovative solutions found on the market: Real time spectral editing, direct control of spectral sample and a layer system for spectral compositing.

    What's new in SpectraLayers Pro 4?

    The new version primarily focuses on optimizations of the Audio Engine, more efficient project and layer management and cooperation with other DAWs (especially Pro Tools®). In this way, SpectraLayers Pro 4 makes possible seamless project exchange with Pro Tools® as a plug-in (AAX). Now audio files can be transferred with just one click directly from the DAW to SpectraLayers Pro, where they can be edited and re-imported back in realtime.

    It is also now possible to work in the software on multiple projects in parallel. Data can be exchanged between projects quickly and easily. On the other hand, the new "layer grouping" is more than just a management tool. Precision joining and selective editing of various layers takes a huge load out of the mixing process and sound design. Frequency and harmony selection tool optimization also delivers excellent results, for example with "lock to frequency". This function makes it possible to quickly navigate, select and specifically edit a certain frequency. This works thanks to a new algorithm, which automatically sets the areas you have selected!

    Robin Lobel and MAGIX are excited about the successful cooperation and are pleased with the harmonious result:

    "This is the most polished release to date and improves on the foundations set by SpectraLayers Pro 3."

    Artists on SpectraLayers Pro 4

    "I love using SpectraLayers Pro to help create Sounds that appear to spring naturally from another dimension. I can deconstruct and reconstruct familiar as well as unidentifiable sounds into shadows or translucent projections with its unique tools and structure."
    Dane A Davis, Danetracks president, Oscar winner for "The Matrix"

    "The ability to interact with audio on such a new and graphical interface opens up incredible potential for both restoration and sound design."
    Tim Nielsen, sound designer, Skywalker Sound (A Lucasfilm Company)

    "SpectraLayers Pro provides a unique toolset for visualizing and manipulating sounds the way we actually perceive them. No other application on the market can match its potential for true creativity!"
    Johan Althoff, lead sound designer, Starbreeze Studios

    "Our main work these days is providing music and illuminating sound design for film scores like Hercules, Total Recall and the Fast & Furious franchise. I've become a big fan of SpectraLayers for the apparently magical powers of audio dissection it possesses. It has given us practically forensic tools to be able to manipulate audio and is a great addition to a sound designer's palette."
    Mike Truman, composer, Hybrid (Total Recall, Fast & Furious)

    SpectraLayers Pro 4 is available immediately in the following versions:
