SpectraLayers is a digital audio editing software suite published by Magix Software GmbH. It is designed for advanced audio spectrum editing, catering to professional and semi-professional users. It was previously published by Sony Creative Software under the name Sony SpectraLayers until most of their products were acquired by MAGIX on 24 May 2016.
SpectraLayers is an advanced audio spectrum editor which allows extraction of sounds, audio restoration and creative sound design through the use of a spectral view. Its interface is similar to an image editor.
SpectraLayers is an audio editor first developed by Divide Frame and published by Sony originally as SpectraLayers Pro in July 2012. SpectraLayers Pro 2, released in July 2013, improved speed and added features like Spectral Casting/Molding, markers and metadata support, and non-linear scales. SpectraLayers Pro 3, released in January 2015 further improved performance, also adding 24-bit/192kHz audio support, and redesigning many UI components. December 2016 saw the release of SpectraLayers Pro 4, which is the first update released by Magix Software GmbH after its acquisition of SpectraLayers. Up until this point it had been designed and written entirely by Robin Lobel  but in 2017, Dr. Bill Evans made additional contributions to the features design and user interface.
