Re: [AUDITORY] Real-time spectrogram for Mac

Hi again

Many thanks to all who responded to the below request. I am very grateful.

Below is a list of the recommendations I received, in case this is useful for anyone else. I have tried several of them but certainly not all and won't attempt to provide reviews: all those I trialled had something going for them and it just depends on your purpose and budget. For better or worse, I'm currently using Voice Analyzer for this particular purpose (demonstrating acoustics to non-experts and encouraging them to take it further).

Many thanks once again for the assistance.

Best wishes, Daniel

Subject: Real-time spectrogram for Mac

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
