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.) Brian On Mar 2, 2013, at 11:42 AM, James W.
