Re: Real-time spectrogram for Mac

I wrote my own real-time spectrogram that runs on the Mac in the very fun Processing environment (which is basically a front-end and some wrappers on Java). Â

If you install the free processing environment from http://processing.org , you can download and run my "sketch" from:


I have made a lot of variants on the basic spectrogram (with waveforms, with pause, log scale) etc. if this one isn't quite what you need. ÂIt's quite easy to compile a Processing sketch into a stand-alone binary, I just didn't bother because it's nice to be able to change it rapidly.

Hi -

Background: I have been using the real-time waveform/spectrum (RTSpect) and spectrogram (RTGram) Windows apps from UCL (http://www.phon.ucl.ac.uk/resource/software.php) for several years for teaching and outreach/public engagement as very easy to use to achieve intended results.

Question: Is there anything similar out there for Mac/OSX?

I've had a bit of a search with no luck; needs to be real-time and similarly easy to use for a varied audience. I'm aware of iPad apps that do something similar but am looking for something for Macbook.

Many thanks in advance for any leads.

Cheers, Daniel
