Audiofile Engineering Debuts Spectre 1.0.0 Audio Analyzer

Audiofile Engineering has introduced Spectre version 1.0.0, a multi-instrument real-time audio analyzer for Mac OS X.

Designed in Cocoa from the ground up, Spectre takes advantage of Quartz, OpenGL, CoreAudio and other solid OS X interface features. Spectre is now available for an introductory price of $88.

The essential audio analysis tool for Mac OS X, Spectre is flexible and accurate in its display. Utilizing optimized Quartz, OpenGL and clever memory management, each meter can be resized in real time without interruption. Every meter has a set of factory presets, and meter settings (or sets of meters) can be saved.


No Need For A Plug-in

Spectre’s approach eliminates the need for the application to run as a plug-in. It not only analyzes inputs from your audio hardware, but can also receive input from network sources by using Apple’s AUNetSend/AUNetReceive Audio Unit pair. With this feature, users can analyze audio from any Audio Unit insert on their multitrack (or other AU host) to Spectre running on the same or on another computer. Spectre is the first-ever analysis tool to adopt this method.

Pricing & Availability

Spectre is available for purchase through Audiofile Engineering’s online store for a special introductory price of US $88 (retail price is US $150). Spectre requires Mac OS X Tiger (10.4).

Spectre is the essential audio analysis tool for Mac OS X. Designed in Cocoa from the ground up, Spectre proudly takes advantage of CoreAudio, OpenGL, Quartz Extreme, and other core features within Mac OS X.
