Plug-in maker Wavesfactory announced Spectre, a rather striking multi-band enhancer for Windows and Mac. The tool combines a boosting parametric equalizer and multi-band enhancer, saturating the signal with a variety of harmonic content derived from 8 saturation algorithms based on classic studio gear.
There are five bands with adjustable Q so you can add to or take away from the signal as you wish. Unlike a regular EQ which cuts or boosts the volume of specific frequency bands, Spectre adds harmonic content that didn’t exist in the original track, making for a more musical end result.
Spectre’s 8 saturation algorithms are as follows:
- Warm Tube
- Class A
- Additional “clean” channel that converts Spectre in a parallel boosting EQ

Spectre will be sold from February 21 at an intoductory price of 69 EUR, down from 99 EUR, until March 8. The plug-in is available in VST, AU, and AAX formats.
