Spectra is a powerful digital additive resynthesizer built exclusively for the Reason platform. Spectra’s ability to analyze and re-synthesize any periodic harmonic waveform with its built-in spectral waveform analyzer means you can never exhaust Spectra’s sound creation capabilities. If you’ve ever wanted to create sound by drawing your harmonic spectrum, waveform, or drawing a spectral filter response, then Spectra might be what you’ve been waiting for.
Each voice in Spectra’s synthesis uses two spectral generators, giving you complete control over the harmonic structure of your sound. Built-in and user-defined spectrum modulators ensure you can control multiple harmonics, individual harmonics, morph spectra, sequence spectrum transform, transform filters, sequence filter transform – all with automation.
The Spectra Waveform Analyzer ensures you never go without sound options by allowing you to analyze internal and / or external sound sources, draw your own waveforms, and save harmonic spectra from any periodic source.
The Spectra Editor lets you draw your own harmonic spectrum, draw your own filter responses, and easily design your own filters and spectrum transform sequences.
Spectra has a variety of built-in modulators that let you shape sound in almost any way imaginable. Spectra’s 2 harmonic envelopes each contain 256 DADSR envelopes allowing you to shape, simulate or contour sound spectra beyond your imagination, while 3 sixteen-step MSEGs provide additional modulation options. 2 LFO Spectra let you draw your own LFO shapes and also include Sample and Hold functions.
In the past, additive synthesis was difficult. Not anymore. Spectra makes it relatively easy to program complex additive patches. Spectra’s design is based on the principle that it should be as simple or complex as the user wants. This is also borne out by our core philosophy that synthesizers should be fun, no matter how you define it.
