FreqAnalyst ~ Spectrum Analyzer VST


Blue Cat’s FreqAnalyst is a free spectrum analyzer plug-in that lets you monitor the spectral content of your audio signal in real time.

This plug-in has been designed to provide extreme smoothness and high resolution for both time and frequency: unlike most spectrum analyzers, Blue Cat’s FreqAnalyst is able to display continuous variations even with a very high frequency resolution, thanks to its unique smooth interpolation algorithms.

Most aspects of the audio to frequency display conversion can be managed, which lets you total control over the monitoring. A special thresholding system has been developed to help you see the important parts of the spectrum easily. In case you need extra precision in a particular frequency range, you can zoom the display and check the part of the graph you are interested in.

Tune It! ~ Tune Your Instruments


Tune It! is a piece of software that helps musicians to tune their instrument. It can also be used to monitor the pitch during live performance.

Tune It! is based on a original and very accurate pitch detection algorithm. It can tune a wide range of instruments such as guitar, bass, piano, flute, violin, saxophone, etc…

Tune It! is available for both Windows and Macintosh platforms. It can be ran as a standalone application or as a plugin within a VST or AU host.

Features:

  • Automatic note recognition from A-1 up to A6.
  • Programmable A440 reference from 400 to 480Hz (step of 1Hz or 0,1Hz).
  • Programmable Precision
  • The highest precision, the finest tuning.
  • The lower precision, the lower latency (suited for tuning control during live performance)
