Voxengo SPAN version 3.0 update is now available for download.  SPAN is a free real-time “fast Fourier transform” audio spectrum analyzer plugin for professional music and audio production applications.  For the most part it was derived from Voxengo GlissEQ dynamic parametric equalizer and reproduces its spectrum analysis functionality.  SPAN is available in AudioUnit, AAX, VST and VST3 plug-in formats (including native 64-bit support), for Mac OS X (v10.6 and later), and Windows computers.

List of changes in version 3.0:

  • Added "RT Sigma" analyzer type.
  • Added "Spectrum Offset" display modes.
  • Made bottom group selector switchable.
  • Fixed "zoom in" function's issue.

SPAN provides you with a very flexible “mode” system which you can use to setup your spectrum analyzer preferences.  You may specify Fourier block size in samples, FFT window overlap percentage, spectrum's visual slope.  Beside that you can choose to display secondary spectrum of a desired type (e.g. real-time maximum, all-time maximum).  Spectrum can be smoothed out visually for an easier examination.

SPAN also features output level metering with adjustable ballistics and integration time, K-system metering (including calibration K-system metering).  SPAN displays level metering statistics, headroom estimation and clipping detection.  Correlation metering is available as well.

SPAN features:

  • Output signal power statistics
  • Spectrum smoothing
  • User interface window resizing
  • Clipping statistics
  • Correlation meter
  • K-metering
  • Stereo and multi-channel analysis
  • Mid/side analysis
  • Internal channel routing
  • Channel grouping
  • Preset manager
  • Undo/redo history
  • A/B comparisons
  • Contextual hint messages
  • All sample rates support

Those of us who have Span+, does this new Span3 have anything new or extra or are we already covered by the Span+ version?

Thanks.

SPAN Plus does not have Spectrum offset options yet, these will be added later.

Ok, thank you :)

I just gave the VST2-32bit version a quick test-run (to see the spectrum-offset in action) in Reaper5.27-32bit, and it works perfectly and great as Voxengo-plugs usually do :)

Thanks for your feedback!

Thank you very much Aleksey! it works flawlessly in PT AAX on windows.

I wonder if it would be possible for span to rememer the maximum peak and rms values after the GUI is closed and opened?

It would be a great way to check mixes maximum peak values, without the need of a separate meter plug-in, or having to keep SPAN always open.

Keep up the great work!!

Sorry, but this is technically hard to implement since user interface does not have its state stored like plugin parameters are stored.
