This is part 3 in a growing now-trilogy of swarmatron-inspired free Kontakt instruments! It uses 6 different acoustic stringed instruments, with 40+ different strings playing at any given moment, all of which can bend in and out of tune with one another up to an octave in either direction with a CC control.
SPAN is a free real-time “fast Fourier transform” audio spectrum analyzer AAX, AudioUnit and VST plugin for professional sound and music production applications. For the most part it was derived from Voxengo GlissEQ dynamic parametric equalizer and reproduces its spectrum analysis functionality.
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 supports multi-channel analysis and can be set to display spectrums from two different channels or channel groups at the same time. Spectrum’s color can be chosen to taste.
SPAN also features output level metering with adjustable ballistics and integration time, EBU R128, K-system metering (including calibration K-system metering). SPAN displays level metering statistics, headroom estimation and true peak clipping detection. Correlation metering is available as well.

This audio plugin can be loaded into any audio host application that conforms to the AudioUnit or VST plugin specification. Plugins with AAX version available can be loaded in ProTools 12+.
This plugin is compatible with Windows (32- and 64-bit Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10 and later versions) and macOS (10.7 and later versions, 64-bit Intel processor-based) computers (2.5 GHz dual-core or faster processor with at least 4 GB of system RAM, SSE4.2 instructions support required, e.g. any Intel Core i-, AMD Bulldozer- or Zen-based processor). A separate binary distribution file is available for each target computer platform and audio plugin specification. If supported on a specific processor, the plugin may internally utilize AVX2-optimized code.
Compatible Windows and macOS plugin software: Cubase, Logic Pro, ProTools, Ableton Live, Reaper, Presonus Studio One, FL Studio, Cakewalk, Nuendo, WaveLab, GarageBand, Vegas, SoundForge, Audition, Samplitude, Digital Performer, Mixcraft, Bitwig Studio, Edius, others.
If you cannot get plugin to work on macOS High Sierra/Mojave, you have to logout from the system and login again, it’s a known issue not caused by plugin’s own bug.
List of changes in version 3.11:
Added Apple Silicon native compatibility.
Added 1/48 octave spectrum smoothing option.
Improved spectrum smoothing precision.
Enabled the “asynchronous drawing” window mode on macOS; may fix the user interface “lagging”.
The “Copy to” button is now called the “Copy”: this button now copies parameters FROM the selected group, NOT TO the selected group. This should improve the workflow.
Improved font rendering slightly.
Oliver Schmitt von Resonance Sound hat mit KEYS-Freestuff ein üppiges Samplepaket von über 1,5 Gigabyte exklusiv für KEYS-Leser geschnürt – kostenlos. Knackige deftige Drumloops für (Deep) House, Minimal Techno and Techno machen einen Großteil der Samples aus, die mitunter auch ohne Kickdrum vorliegen. Knarzige Elektrobässe und verspielte ElektroHouse-Arpeggio-Sequenzen, sind genauso Bestandteil wie spritzige Glitch- und Clickloops. Synthwave-Liebhaber erhalten ein komplettes Construction Kit. Gefühlvolle Vocals und sphärische Atmogesänge sind hier zudem zu finden, wie auch bedrohliche Atmos und Texturen aus fernen Galaxien. Ein gelungenes Starter-Kit für die Produktion elektronischer Beats, deren Samples auch frei in kommerziellen Projekten verwendet werden dürfen.
Oliver Schmitt from Resonance Sound has created a lush sample package with more than 1.5 gigabytes exclusively for KEYS readers with KEYS-Freestuff – free. Crisp hefty drum loops for (Deep) House, Minimal Techno and Techno make up a large part of the samples, which are sometimes also available without kick drum. Creaky electro basses and playful electro house arpeggio sequences, are just as much a part as lively glitch and click loops. Synthwave lovers get a complete construction kit. Emotional vocals and spherical atmospheric vocals can also be found here, as well as threatening atmospheres and textures from distant galaxies. A successful starter kit for the production of electronic beats, whose samples may also be used freely in commercial projects.
