DUY has released the DUY Magic Spectrum mastering tool.
Available for TDM, RTAS, Audio Units, VST and MAS/MOTU for Mac, DUY Magic Spectrum is a high-quality mastering tool that allows you to modify frequency contents in a flexible and precise manner. Any frequency content of any kind of audio material can be edited.
DUY Magic Spectrum's practical design includes a range of functions that vary from a very basic spectrum Matching use to a total control over the audio spectrum, with an impressive high resolution and an unprecedented degree of quality.
How does DUY Magic Spectrum work?
The most basic utility that Magic Spectrum provides is the matching of spectrums. For example: take a track you like the sound of, and "play it" to Magic Spectrum. Then, take your track and analyse your sound. Finally, apply the sound character of the song you like to your own song, in whichever amount you like.
If you have no songs to use as a reference, you may also load any of the many included presets, analyzed from some of the best recordings of all time, or from specific-sounding masters.
Magic Spectrum can also be used as an EQ that emphasizes the results, or you can even load 4 different responses and vectorially combine these responses in the way you like, to add "more character" of one sound or more of another.
The "Advanced" mode literally lets you manipulate the spectrum by providing graphic edition tools that enable you to have direct access to the spectrum of the song itself.
Who should use DUY Magic Spectrum?
Anyone wanting to make the spectrum of a song sound like another. For example, if producer "A" has made a lovely recording of a song, you can analyse the song and apply the "sound" to your track.
If you're adding a bonus track to an album, for example, and you'd like to make the track not stand out sonically from the rest of the album, use Magic Spectrum to re-master it and make it more "even" in comparison to the other tracks in the album.
High quality for TDM, RTAS , AU, MAS & VST users
In the designing stage of Magic Spectrum, DUY has strived to develop and ultimately achieve proprietary techniques and algorithms that have enabled to treat the audio signal in a highly professional manner, with internal 56-bit resolution, phase coherence, immediate-response algorithms, in-depth statistical analysis and much more.
The design of DUY Magic Spectrum provides different edition levels: the basic mode allows you to match frequencial contents, whereas the very powerful advanced manual mode provides intelligent tools and plenty of graphic information.
DUY Magic Spectrum is shipping now, and ships in 2 different versions:
DUY Magic Spectrum: native version for RTAS, AU, VST & MAS is priced at 249 EUR.
DUY Magic Spectrum PRO: is the TDM version, priced at 349 EUR.
What is the difference between the standard and the PRO version?
Magic Spectrum Pro for TDM provides basically the same functionality as Magic Spectrum. However, as an added value, the PRO version adds even higher precision in the frequency bands, allowing for breathtaking accuracy in the edition and processing of each of the bands. Magic Spectrum PRO's process takes place in the time domain, using DUY's exclusive OFIR (Optimal Frequency Impulse Renderer) technology algorithm, allowing to render audio with extremely complex equalizations within TDM with zero-latency. The great advantage of the OFIR technology is its great resolution and definition, preserving virtually no delay. Magic Spectrum Pro for TDM is presented as a Mono process. For multichannel applications, the plug-in is inserted as a "Multi-mono" plug-in, with the "Link" button active within Pro Tools. Magic Spectrum for AU, RTAS, VST and MAS processes the signal within the frequency domain, using an evolution of the FFT algorithm that provides huge quality to the processing, thanks to the inmensely high overlapping rate. The algorithm is processed in an accelerated manner using the vectorial unit of the processor, allowing for an extremely light load on processors. Magic Spectrum for RTAS, Audio Units, VST and MAS is presented as a Mono and Stereo process, except for VST, which is always Stereo but allows Mono processing as well.
