In addition, SoundHack Spectral Shapers for Windows will soon be released and will feature a new version of the VST plugins and an RTAS release for Protools.
The four plugins in the Spectral Shapers bundle are filters which reshape the timbre of sound: +spectralcompand, a spectral version of a compressor/expander which can be used for broadband noise reduction; +spectralgate, a multi-band noise gate and ducker; +morphfilter, which morphs between two filter settings that can be drawn or learned; and +binaural, a spatialization plug-in optimized for headphone use.
Spectral Shapers 1.2 is available as an electronic download from the SoundHack website, or from authorized dealers. It is a free update to registered users.
