Inspector 1.2 updated
Elemental Audio Systems has released version 1.2 of its audio analysis plug-in, . The new version adds Digidesign RTAS support, an enhanced user interface design, automation support, and new spectral display modes. Digidesign Pro Tools users can now utilize Inspector's alarms to be notified of adverse conditions in their audio. Inspector is available as a free download from the Elemental Audio Systems web site and supports the following plug-in formats: RTAS (MacOS X and Win XP), Audio Unit (MacOS X) and VST (MacOS X, Windows).
Inspector is a compact but powerful analysis tool with integrated spectral analysis and extensive metering. It can also be used to configure the spectrum to display peak or average and may choose from a fast or slow decay rate. Inspector's configurable peak and RMS meters allow users to set the caution and warning zones, while realtime numeric readouts offer information on the state of the audio. Version 1.2 also features improved graphics performance and improved Audio Unit support.
Inspector supports sample rates up to 192kHz and is Mac OS X Panther (10.3) compatible. The MacOS 9, 1.1 version, remains available for download from the Elemental Audio Systems web site.
