Hey everyone! Today I'm super excited to announce that a long overdue performance update to the RE, Optic Multi Channel Analyzer, is now live! This is a free update to existing owners. It is also currently 25% off!

A lot of people had some very valid complaints when it came to the performance of this device on initial release. It took me awhile, but I'm confident in saying that this update solves ALL of those problems. But you don't have to take my word for it:



For those who are unfamiliar, Optic is a multi-channel spectrum analyzer capable of analyzing up to 7 different stereo channels at once, displaying their frequency content side by side for comparative and creative purposes.

All trials have been reset, so if you tried it in the past and you weren't happy with the performance or have never seen it before I highly suggest giving it a shot.

Store Page (with full change log): https://shop.propellerheads.com/rack-ex ... -analyzer/

To long time users, I really appreciate your patience in waiting for this update.
I have also created an additional video to answer one of my most frequently asked questions: How to see Mix Channel changes in Optic

I am just curious, what you did for the optimisation or is this companies top secret stuff?

A lot of the improvements came from gradually gaining a better understanding of the SDK through work on other RE's, better understanding its drawing system and throttling draw calls properly. The DSP side of things was already pretty well optimized in version 1.

Bough it! Really great stuff - thanks!!! :)

Some ideas for future versions (also posted on FB):
- automatically populate the name of the frequency spectrum with name of the track it comes from or at least the name of the device, or patch,
- in "Peak Hold" mode, would it be possible to still have the spectrum graph bouncing, but leave the "shadow" or "outline" of the peak signal, so that you could see both the peak and momentary levels? sometimes the peak can be far above the average levels, so that can be misleading,
- can you consider adding "masking" indicator like iZotope Neutron or FabFilter Q3, where the plugin actually highlights the are where frequencies are clashing the most, based on some criteria (eg. loudness and persistence of the overlap, freqency [the lower the freq, the more audible the clashing]),
- could you move the "Precision [FFT]" setting to the front?
- could you add global "M" / "S" switches to mute and un-solo all tracks at once?
