Spectral analysis and editing based on a sinusoidal sound model

SPEAR (Sinusoidal Partial Editing Analysis and Resynthesis) is an application that implements sinusoidal analysis (MQ/PARSHL method) and a full-featured GUI. It supports flexible selection and immediate manipulation of analysis data, cut and paste, and unlimited undo/redo. Hundreds of simultaneous partials can be synthesized in real-time and documents may contain thousands of individual partials dispersed in time. It also supports a variety of standard file formats for the import and export of analysis data.

SPEAR SPEAR v 0.7.4 Jul 17, 2010 MacOS X UB
This version fixes a bug with SNDAN files.

* Support for Unicode filenames/pathnames. This fixes the long standing problem with pathnames containing non-ASCII characters.
* Reorganized and streamlined synthesis options in the Sound menu. Choose various options under the "Synthesis Method" submenu.
* Reorganized synthesis preferences.
* Preferences for controlling noise resynthesis. The noise bandwidth and filter order can be adjusted. High filter orders will produce a noise band with a steeper amplitude cutoff slope.
* Adjustments to the scaling effect of the noise slider.
* Windows bug fixes.
Michael Klingbeil SPEAR v 0.7.1 Aug 27, 2008 MacOS X UB
  • No expiration date!

  • The pencil tool now works! Amplitude is proportional to horizontal velocity: the faster you move to the left or right the higher the amplitude.

  • Many small bug fixes and interface improvements for Windows.

  • Support for DirectSound and ASIO sound devices on Windows (select in the Preferences window).

  • Fade in/out selected partials.

  • Improved Windows and Mac installation.

    Wow! amazing potential here... From just playing around with it, this looks amazing - ability to control every partial down to the minutest detail. crazy. Resynthesis has not sounded very full for the audio i tried, but it was very polyphonic and i have not yet fooled around with the FFT resolution, which i think would help this.
