STEINBERG SpectraLayers Pro 6 £342


The audio waveforms that are drawn in our DAWs – and that we’re all familiar with reading, editing and generally messing around with – visualise the overall amplitude of the audio at any given point in time. In other words, the waveforms are showing the amplitude and time domains of the audio. This allows for certain kinds of editing to be performed directly on the audio waveform – cropping, editing, crossfades and so on – but when working in the third domain, frequency, the tools are much more abstracted. You couldn’t, for example, set up an EQ by interacting directly with a conventional audio waveform.

The Holy Grail of audio editing, then, would be to work in all three domains simultaneously. This is precisely what Steinberg’s new SpectraLayers Pro 6 audio editor has been designed to do.

Get Your Pitch Perfect
Drums and rhythmic loops are a big part of sampling but things are different when it comes to sampling pitched instruments. Early samplers lacked the memory to capture sustained sounds in full – a single piano note allowed to decay naturally could be
