Spexx is a plug-in for spectral manipulation of sound in real-time. It features a smooth spectral freeze and provides various functionalities for interaction with sound, allowing the user to create a wide range of spectral effects, from unusual, beautifully sounding reverbs to experimental spectral transformations.
Spexx is built in a modular fashion, individual effects can be switched on as well as dragged around within the freeze stage (which applies the effect to the captured sound continuously) and the output stage (which modifies a snapshot from the currently frozen signal). Additionally, the freeze stage can be bypassed entirely, which directly applies the output effects to the incoming sound.
Multi-core support prevents any glitches or audio dropouts. User-controllable parameters for various aspects of spectral resolution allow the user to find the best settings for any environment – in the studio, on the road or in live settings. Parameters can be fully automated or mapped to external MIDI controllers.
Spexx consists of two processing stages: A freeze stage captures and accumulates the incoming sound, applying the audio effects to the captured sound continuously, causing the output signal to change over time – like the reverb tail of an echo – plus an output stage which applies a user-defined spectral operation to the signal. Bypass the freeze stage entirely to apply the output effects directly to the incoming sound.
Two categories of audio effects for the shaping of all kinds of spectral effects: Focus, Feaze, Decay, Damping for the creation of unusual, beautifully sounding reverbs. Mirror, Pitch, Slope to generate experimental spectral transformations. Any combination of these is possible for other unique soundscapes.
The user interface of Spexx has been built in a modular fashion: Drag an individual effect into the desired position in the processing chain to define the signal manipulation. Set an effect to “active” to apply it to that processing stage. Or turn it "inactive" for the signal to remain unaffected. Click on the button again to restore the main sequence.
Spexx comes with multi-core support to prevent any glitches and audio dropouts. It also features user-controllable parameters for various aspects of spectral resolution that allow you to find the best settings for any environment – in the studio, on the road, or in a live setting. Parameters can be fully automated or mapped to external MIDI controllers
