Re: Real-time spectrogram for Mac

Here's a powerful acoustical analysis tool for OSX that does what you're asking.  It might be a little more advanced than what you're looking for, but I like to use it in my teaching.  (The developer is a colleague who is open to feedback for application-specific software improvements. You can contact him through the website.)
