TC Works’ real-time audio-editing and authoring applications SparkLE and SparkLE Plus have been updated to version 2.5.

Both products are based on TC Works’ hi-end audio-processing application Spark, with the same browser view, access to the Project Database, Wave Editor and Play List – all in one window.

SparkLE is compatible with both Mac OS 9 and OS X. It includes a Plug-In bundle featuring a "mastering quality" Audio Maximizer, a Tempo Delay, and a One Band EQ with selectable equalization types – from Notch to Parametric – and a Master window with high resolution metering. It provides a real-time VST FX Chain with the ability to load four VST plug-ins.

Performance boost SparkLE Plus offers all the features of SparkLE and adds a number of tools. It has QuickTime support and an extra plug-in – the Native PerformanceVerb.

The new versions of SparkLE Plus and SparkLE feature enhanced editing and speedier file navigation. Projects with multiple audio files now open up to ten times faster. All major audio file formats are supported, including AIFF (Audio Image Format File) and WAV (Windows Wave), and all available QuickTime codecs.

SparkLE – priced at $19.95 – and the $49.95 SparkLE Plus are available for download from TC Works’ Web site.
