HawkEye comprises the most versatile audio measuring instruments in one toolset. It has been developed with the highest precision in mind to set a new standard in audio analyzing.
Unique features like bit-depth analysis and high-frequency monitoring offer a new window into the world of high-resolution audio recordings.
The user experience follows aviation industry guidelines for designing cockpit instruments. Therefore, HawkEye presents all information uncluttered, minimizing eyestrain over extended periods of use.
HawkEye’s main view shows all measurement instruments within a single window, yet this is only one mode of operation. To be as flexible as possible any instrument can be undocked in its own resizable window by a simple double-click, and then freely arranged on your screen!

SPL has been developing and manufacturing analog and digital audio gear for the music, film, multimedia, and broadcasting industries since 1984. SPL products are respected worldwide for their…
This collection contains 2 Analog Code plugins that emulate both the classic single and modern dual band versions of SPL’s analog hardware de-essers - considered by many to be the very best in professional recording. Just like the hardware versions, no other de-esser plugin gets the job done as easily and precisely while maintaining the character of the original source.
Traditional de-essers compress the frequency range where esses typically occur. Without constant knob-tweaking, these de-essers can deliver lispy- or nasally-sounding vocals, especially on tracks with high amounts of sibilance. SPL´s Auto Dynamic De-Esser eliminates these challenges by monitoring the entire frequency spectrum and automatically detecting the sibilant frequencies.
The bandwidth is set so narrowly around the range of the sibilance that neighboring frequencies remain unaffected. This frequency band is mixed back into the main signal phase-inverted to cancel out the sibilance. The result is precise de-essing that is incredibly simple to apply, while preserving the original character and timbre of the voice - even at high reduction settings.
The SPL De-Esser plugins also contain features not found on the original hardware, such as an M/S Stereo mode that allows you to de-ess a full mix and without losing the high frequencies of cymbals, guitars or keyboards. This makes the SPL De-Esser a valuable tool during mastering.
