Ten years, ten versions. SpectraLayers 10 has been reinvented from the ground up, with all-new, state-of-the art AI systems which establish new benchmarks for precision, speed and control. New tools and processes provide unmatched levels of power for editors in every field, from repair to post-production, mastering, music production and 21st century sound design.

Unmix Your World

Unmixing in SpectraLayers 10 has been radically restructured and expanded. Capture more instruments, including guitar tracks and drum hits. Unmix multiple voices into their own independent layers, unmix multichannel content, selected time ranges and employ a variety of new processes tailored to your unmixing objectives.

Song Unmixing

The stem unmixing process now adds guitar, for a total of six generated layers. New controls allow you to perform the unmixing process in various ways to best suit your source material.

Unmix Drums

After unmixing a track into six stems, you can now apply a dedicated unmix process to the drums layer alone, to acquire clean kick, snare and cymbals layers.

Unmix Multichannel Content

Select a small portion of a specific sound, engage Unmix Multichannel Content to analyze its relative power across multiple channels and then extract the entire sound evenly across them all.

Other Improvements

Every AI-assisted process has been updated. Achieve better-sounding results when unmixing music and sound, and also when making corrections using the Reverb Reduction and Voice Denoiser processes.

Speech Processing and Refinement

Post-production specialists will be pleased with the new approaches we’ve taken to speech recognition and processing. New features and re-energized legacy features come together here on a platform with immense power for shaping dialog. ARA integration with Nuendo and Cubase seals the deal.

Unmix Multiple Voices

Use Unmix Multiple Voices to extract two or more voices to their own independent layers. A discrimination control is provided to help optimize the process for given sources.

Unmix Noisy Speech

Separate speech from background noise with a new AI-assisted process specifically trained on human speech. Every noise reduction algorithm in SpectraLayers 10 has been upgraded.


Speech layers can now be transcribed into nine different languages, with words, phrases, and sentences conveniently listed and visible on the timeline for easy selection and editing.

Reverb Match Process

Reverb Match now partners with Ambience Match, EQ Match and the improved Reverb Reduction process to provide a new level of ambient space control.

More Processes, More Control

On top of the redesigned core and vastly evolved AI potential, we’ve added a host of new features for enhanced control. Classify sounds by type, identify competing sounds, set spectral thresholds, normalize at the layer level and take advantage of many other new features for a truly enhanced editing experience.

  • Logical Layer Colors

    As well as new options to create more automatically generated layers, there are new ways to stay organized. This improvement helps ensure that your layers will default to alternating colors.

  • Improved Value Sliders

    Another small workflow improvement is that we’ve improved the feel of every slider in the application, to help you get to the settings you need as smoothly and effortlessly as possible.

  • Preview and Apply Keyboard Shortcuts

    These new shortcuts help you to take advantage of more options for getting things done in SpectraLayers in ways that best suit your workflow.

  • Time Insert / Cropping

    New insert and cropping options allow you to use these operations on a per-layer basis, as opposed to making changes across all layers of a project.

  • Contextual Cut/Copy/Paste

    Yet another way to keep your eyes on the prize: perform cut/copy/paste operations by simply right-clicking over your selection and accessing this new menu.

  • Improved Online Help

    Every tool and process now links directly to its user guide page. Learn as you explore the program and enhance your understanding as you work.

  • Multiple VST3 Plug-in Support

    Now you can chain multiple plug-ins in the VST3 effects process. In conjunction with the new selection-based processing, this provides greatly expanded and more precisely-targeted plug-in processing options.

  • View Multiple Processes At-Once

    Expanding on the Dynamic Spectral Processing functionality, now you can have multiple process dialogs open at once. Toggle between them to evaluate the differences between selected processes.

  • Import Multiple Audio Files At-Once

    Launch a new SpectraLayers project or add layers to an existing project quickly by importing multiple audio files at once. Each will appear on its own independent layer.
