Avid Technology Inc. subsidiary M-Audio on Wednesday announced that it’s begun distributing exclusively iZotope Inc.’s
Spectron, Ozone 3 and Trash
— three software applications aimed at computer-using musicians, available for Mac OS X and Windows.
Spectron is a spectral domain effects processing package that includes standard effects like delay, chorus, filter, flange, panning and morphing. But it it also provides the ability to selectively delay, feedback and modulate specific ranges of frequencies, as well. It supports 64-bit processing and 192kHz audio. Ozone 3 is an integrated 64-bit mastering system with analog modeling designed with a single interface instead of as a collection of plug-ins. And Trash is a 64-bit distortion processor that acts as a guitar rig simulator capable of rectified overdrive and 85 different cabinet models. It supports 48 algorithms, 36 filter types, multi-band compression and gating. Delay modeling includes analog, lo-fi and tape-style.
Standard features on all applications include unlimited undo; they all support Live 4, Cubase SX 1.0.6, Logic 6.4.1, Pro Tools LE/TDM 6.1 and other hosts supporting Audio Unit and VST. System requirements call for a G4 running Mac OS X v10.2 or later. Spectron costs US$129.99; Ozone 3 costs $249.99 and Trash sells for $199.99.
