I don’t own spectral layers because I use RX but I thought id put a post here on a feature that would set SL apart from everyone else.
As a full-time dialogue editor (mainly audiobooks) part of my job is to remove breaths. There is no tool out there in the market that does it properly. I have used them all inc rx de breath, waves de breath, gates, etc. None of them get it right, they can get you close but they cut off words and if you want to do it right, you still need to do a manual review.
What would be great, is if you can use the function to find similar events in SL. So you highlight or take samples of some breaths in the recording, and SL finds all the breaths in the recording. It would then select all entire breaths and show them in the SL editor,
then SL, goes through all the breaths it finds 1 by 1 so you can review and adjust the start and ends. Once they are all confirmed, you can then select a function to remove or reduce the volume.
no company is doing this, if you pull it off you will be saving people hours, and it would make people like me jump to SL for this purpose.
