South-Australian based plug-in developer Crysonic has released for sale their new, updated mastering grade plug-in – Spectra’Phy V2HD. What sets this dynamics processor apart from the rest is that it utilizes Crysonic’s proprietary “Nephilim Audio Physics Engine” allowing the user to achieve a more crisp, clean master without any undesirable artifacts.
The Spectra’Phy is available now demo or purchase for a discounted $58 USD ($29.95 for previous Crysonic customers) until June 28th, where it will be available for the regular price of $144 USD. Available formats are VST and AU for Mac OS X 10.5 or later and Windows 7, Vista and XP.
Want to know more about the unique functions of this new physics-based processor? See what Crysonic has to say:
“Spectra’Phy V2HD – is the second generation Mastering grade look-ahead brickwall audio limiter / maximizer and is now a full Multi-Band processor as well as the only audio plug-in to utilize the principals of mechanical physics for Audio processing. SpectraPhy Pro V2 breaks new ground in Audio processing for quality and easy of use to achieving amazing professional results for Mastering, Mixing, Tracking and all Audio/ Music Production.
It is incredibly efficient in processing while maintaining predictability and providing the best of breed outcome for all Pro Audio use together with it’s gorgeous user Interface. SpectraPhy V2 provides complete independent gain threshold control for all individual L/R channels for each band and this is carried over to the Final Mastering level on the input channel. By utilizing the new Crysonic “Nephilim Audio Physics Engine” unlike other limiters, an unusual amount of audio limiting / maximization can be applied without any unwanted audible artifacts.
The innovative approach represents a paradigm shift in the way these types of DSP effects have been designed to date. The unique method employed easily allows the mastering engineer to achieve maximum perceived “loudness” transparently without ever getting overshoots (Digital-over’s) and with minimum audible distortion. The characteristics of the final audio can quickly be adjusted to taste, be it analog or digital with only a single click. The smooth dial component can be used further when “running hot” to tame and impart warmth in either Linear or Exponential modes, this can naturally be disabled if not required. Spectraphy has been designed for ease of use and efficiency in mind without sacrificing creative freedom.
ALL NEW NEXT GENERATION SPECTRAPHY V2HD PHYSICS ENGINE ‘ POWERED BY NEPHILIM AUDIO’
What makes the Spectra’phy V2 process unique is the novel approach used for its dynamic signal analysis. Internally Sprectra’phy utilizes a special physics engine (Nephilim Audio) to accurately simulate multiple response signals to maximize the perceived signal volume and to also “brick wall” upper limit to peak set levels. Final response curves are computed on the analysis of multiple simulations each having different characteristics that are driven mainly by incoming transient signals concurrently. This approach tends to produce a more natural sound, almost completely eliminating the risk of introducing audible nonlinear distortion.
