Our Highlights from 2014

2014 was a great year for Spektro Audio. We worked on some great projects and we received a lot of support from our costumers, audio / music related websites and professionals from all over the world.
In this blog post, we'd like to highlight some great releases and achievements from 2014:

CV Toolkit - Standalone Version

The first version of CV Toolkit - Standalone Version was released in Janurary and it was greatly received by the modular synth community. CV Toolkit - Standalone Version 1.0 was reviewed by Resident Advisor and it received a 4/5 score. 
Since the first release, our goal for CV Toolkit has been to offer an incedibly flexible, easy to use and affordable solution.
Throughout the year, we released the 1.1 update that added important features such as VCO Calibration and a CV Quantizer, and the 1.2 update that introduced the new Virtual Slot System and four new virtual modules. 

Interface changes from the first 1.0 release to the latest 1.2 update.

Interface changes from the first 1.0 release to the latest 1.2 update.

Many professionals in the audio / music community such as Richard Devine, Sonic Mayhem, Cyrus Rex, Celldweller, Brent Daniels and many others have shown their support for CV Toolkit.
Our plan for 2015 is to continue to improve and expand CV Toolkit and even add support to other products (more about that in the near future!).


GrainFlux & Komplex 1.1 – Max for Live Synthesizers

This year we also released an amazing new Max for Live synthesizers called GrainFlux and a new 1.1 update for Komplex.

GrainFlux is a monophonic virtual synthesizer that combines different synthesis techniques such as granular, wavetable, and subtractive synthesis to create unique and distinctive sounds. It uses audio samples to create different waveforms which can be morphed and modulated.
If you'd like to know more about GrainFlux, visit http://www.spektroaudio.com/grainflux and check out the audio demos and video overview.

We also released a new 1.1 update for Komplex, our FM-based Max for Live synth. The 1.1 update added polyphony, adjustable envelope curves and many other minor enhancements.

Free Projects

In 2014, we decided to give back to the community by offering free projects such as the Wired Bass instrument pack for Ableton (which was featured on Create Digital Music and has had more than 5.000 downloads) and the Spektro PS-8, a free MaxforLive sequencer for the Ableton Push. 


We'd like to thank everybody for their continuous support and assure you that we'll continue to work hard to offer great new products and updates during 2015.
