New in 7

From manual control to full autopilot

Already well known for its surgical precision and extensive editing tools, SpectraLayers Pro 7 adds the automatic processes you’ve been asking for, including clip and click repair, hum reduction and de-essing. But that’s only the beginning. Fresh new features, fundamentally shaped by artificial intelligence, use advanced pattern recognition to manage selection and extraction processes with speed and accuracy. From manual control to full autopilot, SpectraLayers Pro is essential for editors in every audio field.

Major Features

Your new AI partner

Just as audio engineers focus on separating increasingly fine details in sound, the new AI in SpectraLayers Pro 7 uses algorithms to learn from the data flowing through its built-in neural network. In the same way that these algorithms can now accurately determine how to apply color to a black and white photograph, the AI in SpectraLayers Pro can sense discrete events in a sound field and isolate them on independent, colorful layers for processing. AI is changing faster than its history can be written — be at the leading edge with SpectraLayers Pro 7.


Unmix - Tracks to stems

This AI-assisted process in SpectraLayers Pro scans the finished file of a song, allowing you to “unmix” it and extract the different instruments to separate layers, with default settings for vocals, piano, bass, drums, and more. (SpectraLayers Elements allows extraction of vocals only.)


Unmix - Components

Unmix stems into tone, noise and transient component layers. Reconstruct missing noise hidden by tones and transients. Comprehensive learning algorithms clear the path to clean extraction.

Pattern finder

Significant advances in pattern recognition are a hallmark of today’s rapidly evolving AI technology. SpectraLayers Pro 7 allows you to select a target sound and then trigger a search to automatically locate and select every other similar sound in the spectrum.

Pro • Elements

Voice Denoiser

Perfect for cleaning up location interview recordings, the Voice Denoiser algorithm is trained to recognize and isolate the human voice. You can automatically attenuate everything but the voice for maximum intelligibility.

Pro • Elements


Spectral de-essing is the most precise and least invasive way to tame and shape vocal sibilants. Manual de-essing in SpectraLayers Pro has always been quick and easy. Now, the new automatic de-essing feature makes it even easier. Manual or automatic — either approach is far more accurate than typical waveform-based plug-in processing.

Repair processes

Hum reduction

This automatic process detects and eliminates unwanted hum, as well as higher harmonics generated by the fundamental tone. Hum harmonics can be independently attenuated to the level you choose.


Clip repair

Clipped peaks come in many shapes and sizes. The AI in SpectraLayers Pro 7 has seen and evaluated 32,000 of them, so it knows exactly what to look for and how to automatically apply the best repair.

Pro • Elements

Click repair

Automatically detect and repair clicks, crackles and pops. Invert the process to audition problem sounds in isolation, then execute the repair after you’ve dialed in the fix you need.


Improved healing

Better interpolation and faster performance, now assisted by AI, looks more closely at noise, tones and transients, making this easy repair process more versatile and precise than ever.

New and Improved Tools

Additional new features

Playback VU meter

This small, unobtrusive meter shows the mix output level to help you avoid clipping while producing and mixing multiple layers.

Avoid unintended selections

A four-pixel drag is now required to create a selection, resulting in less unintended selections.

New Cut/Copy/Paste options

can create new layers or transfer selections to existing adjacent layers. Simply reposition Layers in the Layers Panel to set your paste destination.

Single layer/Group mute/Solo

Hold down Ctrl/Cmd to limit soloing and muting to one layer or group at a time.

Export Layer Audio

option is now available in the File menu. Render a selected layer directly with no need to isolate it in the mix first.

Rapid tool toggling

Use any tool’s shortcut to cycle through the tools that share it.

Customizable UI luminosity

UI luminosity is now configurable to provide the brightness that best suits your monitor and workplace environment. Set the control to optimize your spectral view and avoid screen fatigue, day and night.
