Expert Sleepers Spectral Conquest is a new effect plug-in that lets you directly manipulate the frequency spectrum of audio signals.
The incoming signal is analysed via a FFT (Fast Fourier Transform), resulting in the familiar spectrum plot where the full audio spectrum is split into a number of narrow frequency bands. The outgoing audio is then regenerated by an Inverse FFT. The interesting bit is that the plug-in lets you modify the frequency spectrum in between.
Spectral Conquest allows you to modify the spectrum in two ways:
- By setting a multiplier for each frequency band. You can simply draw out the multipliers in the GUI.
- By applying a script to the spectrum. Some basic scripts are included with the plug-in to perform operations such as filtering and gating, but you can also write scripts yourself to do whatever you like.
You can see Spectral Conquest in action above.
Expert Sleepers Spectral Conquest is available now for Mac OS X (AU, VST) and Windows (VST) for $29. Spectral Conquest is also available as part of the Ultimate Bundle (now priced at $155) and the Creative Effects Bundle (now priced at $55).
