Spark! v2.0 to enlighten users 11/10/00 TC Works has launched an updated version of its audio editor and processor, Spark! v2.0 (exclamation mark mandatory). This version offers 'an all new set of features and major enhancements for the popular MacOS application, including dramatically enhanced file editing speed and an increased powerful FX Matrix for up to 40 instances of real time plug-in processes,' says the company.
A major feature of Spark 2.0 is a new completely rewritten virtual file engine, which results in a speed improvement of all the editing functions in Spark's Wave Editor and allows for instantaneous and unlimited undos. With this improvement many Spark functions are now processed at speeds which are exponentially faster for instant results. Spark 2.0's new FXmatrix increases the original configuration from a 4x5 routing grid of Plug-Ins to 4x10 with even more creative ways to increase the routings possible by adding FXmatrices with the main FXmatrix, providing an huge number of possible effect processing and routing variations.
There's also a real-time analyzer, a classic guitar wah-wah pedal plug-In called TouchWah, and an increased number of bundled plug-ins:18 total in Spark! v2.0; 20 plug-ins with Spark XL, the version with Pro Tools TDM plug-In support and de-noising and de-clicking restoration features.
Comments Ralf Schluenzen, CEO of TC Works, 'Now massive multi-band FX configurations become a reality so musicians, sound designers, engineers and creative music professionals have even more possibilities than ever before, with lightning fast response in real-time.'
