|Kjaerhus Audio has announced the release of a new software synthesizer called Spectra.
Spectra is a synthesizer plug-in which combines multistage additive synthesis with subtractive
synthesis in an easy to operate and intuitive product. It provides you with a wealth of timbral
possibilities, ranging from classic synthesizer sounds to re-synthesized instrument sounds and
sound morphing. It features a 250 partial additive engine with up to 8 detune-able oscillators per
Voice. Up to 100 harmonies can be made on a timeline for re-synthesis and harmony morphing. An
audio analyzer is available to convert wave files into harmonies. The subtractive part includes 12
analog modeled filters with resonance, two of those to self-oscillation. Two LFO’s are available for
tremolo, vibrato and filter modulations.
Five flexible multipoint envelopes with looping and timestretch
capabilities are available to control amplitude, filter cut-off, pitch and modulation level for
each of the two LFO’s. The effect section features Chorus / Flanger, Delay, Phaser and Reverb. A
two bank preset system is available for easy program handling; you can, for instance, browse
through one bank and easily save your favorite sounds to the other bank. There is no latency, which
makes this the ideal instrument for real time performance in the studio or on stage.
“Our goal was to make a musical instrument with new and interesting sound possibilities that was
also easy and intuitive to work with. We have done our best to make this synth as logical and nontechnical
for the user as possible, focusing on the quality and features that make a difference to the
musician.” says Torben Larsen, founder of Kjaerhus Audio.
Spectra will be available for online purchase beginning January 3, 2006. The price will be $198.00,
but until February 3, 2006 it can be purchased for only $158.00 as an introduction discount.
