[freeware] FreqAnalyst plug-in + Pro - Updated

Post by bluecat » Mon Jan 22, 2007 6:34 am

Here is a new freeware we are happy to share with all Live users (on windows platforms): Blue Cat's FreqAnalyst is a freeware real time spectrum analyzer with extremely smooth response and complete control over the audio spectrum analysis. Its customizable user interface and unique transparency feature let you make it totally integrated in your favorite audio application: check the audio spectrum and see behind it!

It is available as a single download or within the Freeware Pack bundle, together with all Blue Cat Audio freeware products.

Features:
- Mono and stereo real time spectrum analyzer.
- Total control over the audio to frequencies tranformation.
- Smart interpolation algorithm for extreme display smoothness.
- Zoomable display.
- The user interface can be made transparent.
- Custom absolute and relative threshold.
- Skinnable user interface.
- DirectX and VST plug-in formats support on Windows platforms
- Full automation and real time MIDI control support.

Product & Bundle links:

Enjoy!

A Pro version with even more features (such as frequency information extraction to be reused as MIDI CC for other effects control, see our existing audio analysis tools) is expected for next month.

If you ask for it very loud, maybe we will hear you :).

More seriously, there have been requests for Mac port of our plugins, and this is something we might consider some day this year, if there are enough requests to make it worth the investment...

The issue is that we don't make a living out of freeware, so the Mac port will be possible only if we have enough requests for our commercial products...

But how can we mac users get to appreciate a company without trying out some of your stuff first.
The best way to gauge the demand for your commercial products, is to build up a user base with your free products. (IMHO)

As long as you don't go mental like elemental, you should be fine ;)
We need a good analyzer. But not one that costs a kidney like the inspector xl.

That's right. Install Windows XP on your Mac then...! :lol: - Just kidding, do not take it seriously! -

We are serioulsy thinking about the port, but it's not free so... Its needs some more thinking and resources allocation.

Sure...!

Do what elemental did before RND. Free light version, charge for the full featured.

Yes, that's exactly what's happening here: "A Pro version with even more features (such as frequency information extraction to be reused as MIDI CC for other effects control, see our existing audio analysis tools) is expected for next month."

Hey very nice!
Great idea with the transparency mode!

I would pay if this had a sonogram mode, like AG-Works Sonogram plugin, but better, and able to switch between the 2 analysis methods.

Is there any hope of this working stand alone mode accessing the main outs of the DAW in use? I have been looking all over for software that can do this. To have the meters on there own screen all the time and not having to constantly switch over to my master track to see what effect my change has had on the mix would be fantastic. I have found only one company that offers it and the package is too much cash for me at the moment. Any thoughts? I would be willing to pay but just not an arm and a leg.

*Edit* even just a feature that forsed it to remain on the screen no matter what channel you select in live woul do the trick. Just a thought.
