VertexDSP - MultiInspector v1.0 (Pc/Mac/Universal)

Making Music

Based on the technology of FaderWorks and MultiInspectorFree to handle multiple dependent instances of the same plug-in, MultiInspector extends the usage of spectrum analyzers especially in multitrack environments by providing an easy way for simultaneous spectral analysis of several audio signals.

The first instance of MultiInspector behaves like a standard 31 band spectral analyzer. Additional instances automatically send their spectral analysis result to all other instances of MultiInspector. By default, every editor window of MultiInspector shows the same content, but there are numerous options for customizing the display content so that different views of the audio signals can be achieved. After opening all necessary plug-in instances it is sufficient to leave just the editor windows open you really need. The width of the level bars is adjusted according to the current number of signals that are selected for display.

MultiInspector incorporates a standard third octave frequency analyzer. The centre frequencies of the bands are based on the ISO 266:1997 standard (20 Hz to 20 kHz). Pink noise will appear flat in the frequency spectrum with the default slope setting of 3 dB per octave.

MultiInspector supports up to 16 instances at any sample rate from 32 kHz up to 192 kHz.


The following settings are unique to the editor window of every instance and are also part of the presets. This enables the creation of different views for the analysis content.

For smooth operation, the attack and release time of the level bars can be adjusted from 1 to 800 dB per second.

The default slope of 3 dB per octave leads to a flat display of pink noise. The slope value can be changed from -10.0 to +10.0 dB per octave.

The display of peak values and of the level bars can be turned on and off. It is also possible to enable peak hold with a hold time from 0.1 to 5.0 seconds.

The average mode allows a time range from 0.1 to 5.0 seconds.

For quick selection of the signals to display, MultiInspector incorporates solo/mute switches for the analysis result from every instance. The width of the level bars automatically adjusts to the current number of signals selected for display.

There are 8 memory slots for every signal which add up to 8 x 16 memory slots (for all instances) per editor window.

MultiInspector lets you customize the color of every signal.
