Vokator, NI-Spektral Delay
Native Instruments (NI) today released Vokator 1.2 and NI-Spektral Delay 1.6, adding Universal Binary support to the vocoding synthesizer and FFT-based effect processor applications. Vokator boasts a sophisticated synthesizer and a granular sampler, as well as advanced features and multiple modes of operation. NI-Spektral Delay uses real-time FFT (Fast Fourier Transformation) to split each channel of a stereo signal into as many as 160 separately modifiable frequency bands. The software allows users to set the levle, delay time, and feedback amount for each band while applying various modulation effects to the signal in the frequency domain. Vokator and NI-Spektral Delay are each priced at $200, with upgrades available for $30. Customers who registered after September 12th, 2006 can upgrade for free.
