The impression I had is that passed 50% you'll be having the sound of the band more prominent than the sound of the entire source. In other words, this should be only useful to isolate the frequencies which processing will be manipulating.

One or more white dots misbehaving.

Hi,

Ever since I bought Spectre a week ago or so, now when I sometimes call up an instance ONE of the white dots ( mostly the utmost right one) behaves as a normal overall volume knob ?! Meaning : I do a subtle rise on 10K and the whole audio gets VERY LOUD ( not the behaviour I have seen during the test) , It really only behaves as a total volume knob across the board, not a side chained subtle harmonics addition of some highs.. Anyone else seen this? Did I miss a setting that may cause this behaviour? Any help welcome.

Hi,

I am using 1.0.2 already so I guess something else must have changed. The problem persists with the right most white freq-dot.

I get exactly this problem also, Spectre 1.02, MacOS 10.9.5, Live 9.6. Spectre setting "Subtle", but it's anything but…;-)

The Trouble with trebles.

Hi Jesús, @ Wavesfactory @ Spitfire31

As Reported above the High-Shelf white dot regulates the entire volume of the track Spectre 1.0.2 is on. The configuration of MAC OS X ( Sierra) and DAW ( Logic 10.4.1) hasn't changed. The dot just started acting as a volume control.

VIDEO REMOVED BECAUSE BUG RESOLVED, See posting Wavesfactory below

Hey guys, have you all downloaded and installed the latest version from the website? I know they both say version 1.0.2 but there was this bug the first time it was uploaded and I fixed it a few hours later.

Hi guys,

We were getting some errors in Mac - Pro Tools saying that Spectre was an invalid AAX 64 bit plug-in. I fixed this issue and created a new installer for Mac.
If you have this issue you can update here:
https://spectre-wavesfactory.s3.amaz...e%201.0.2b.pkg

I'm already working in the saturation per band feature

Man this is interesting. So few posts compared to other plugins. Am i craxy or something? I have pretty much all of the best saturators and to me this thing is next level. I cant believe the results i am able to get with this. Incredible. I just need to buy it now! haha. So many sales over the summer, but i want to buy this soon. So impressed!

It's a small developer who has already produced TrackSpacer, a long time secret little weapon for creating space in mix fast. I do feel the smaller developers have it rough in the music biz so I try to support them as much a possible because ideas like Spectre and for instance Gulffoss ( from SoundTheory MUST see!!) are worthy innovations that take a new approach hitherto unknown or at least unused.

After long testing since the first version I now use it at least twice in a mix with steel strings or harsh sounds. It also can make the use of UAD's VOG or similar Bass-Boost plugin ( with the added hassle of added loudness) unnecessary .
Very flexible. I still hope for a better and longer organised list of starting points ( presets) in the menu for specific tasks. In conjunction with Gulffoss and Ozone Master Assistant I find I have a fast solid starting point for a mix.

Kudos WavesFactory!

Yeah, I use TrackSpacer on every mix too. So damn good (and so fast to dial in), and works a treat on busses.

Gullfoss is also exceptional.

Spectre still sounding and performing great here. It would be even greater with saturation per band and resizable GUI

Guys.. go to Library => "plugin" folder it's there instead of in "components"
installer issue i guess.. found it doing a "deep" search in my computer
FWIW, to increase size of the GUI, you'll have to click several times to go further in size..
you can now get rid of the white background also.. and new saturation modes are there

Good find. It's there and it does work. And thanks for the tips about getting rid of the white background. Much better now!

I just updated the installer and now it points to the right folder.

By the way, the background hide / show functionality was there from version 1.0

Finally looking into this one as they have a 50% off BF sale. I already have Ozone 8 and just wondering if Spectre has anything more to offer over Ozone 8 Exciter which also does multiband saturation with a choice of saturation types on each band?
