Hi everyone. I recently decided to stop operation of synthetech sound as a company and this has some implications for spectra in the App Store. I could have either removed spectra altogether or offered it for free. I chose the latter knowing that people who purchased it would potentially be upset but what can you do?

I wanted to thank everyone for their support and I hope you enjoy spectra. For those persons concerned about on going support I can only say that I only received one defect for spectra since 3-2018 so I’m feeling like the code is stable. Again thanks to all for the kind words about and support for spectra. It was fun coding it up.

Thank you. It's sad that you have made the decision to cease trading but it was amazingly honourable to give away your software as an alternative. All the best with your future endeavors, whatever they may be

I've said it before, Spectra is the only instrument in the shop that ever made me say, "that's more synth than I know what to do with." That thing was ahead of its time. Your offering is highly appreciated!

Very generous, but somehow bad to hear that you stopped the developing. I was always hoping for a separated filter from you.

Whish you the best!
