Beautiful. Zero resource usage. Nice default colormap. Horizontal B is my choice

This definitely solved my UI dilemma and I added one more tab stack to my layout, to hold these great components foobar has

Wow, I have been wanting this for quite some time now! Thank you for your time and work!

One suggestion/addition - would it be possible to change the legend to terms of 'frequency' as opposed to 'notes'?

EDIT: also, if there is a way to change the number of bars used that would be cool too

Having trouble to unzip , tried on two computers.
One says files corrupted other invalid directory.
Using Foobar 1.1.5 Win XP Winzip.

Other components unzip OK.

Can see zipped file in components folder but can not unzip.

Any idea what I could be doing wrong ?

you don't need to un-zip. file>preferences>components. drag zip onto window or use the install button to locate it.

the zip works fine from here so if you still have problems, try clearing your browser cache or use another browser.

Hello Fismineur, you component is very nice and quite exactly what I was long looking for.

If possible, in your next release, add also the support of 64k FFT and even 128k FFT.

I know, are very CPU heavy-options, but are useful for time to time very low-freq check that the current best 32k FFT doesn't allow.

Many thanks and kind regards,

First thing - thanks for this nice component

I have a feature proposal. One checkbox dropdown list containing two options - "display signal before DSP/dsiplay signal after DSP". This will help watching correct spectrals for diferent channels while using active downmix or upmix DSPs. Currently everything is calculated after DSP chain. For my purposes I need option "before"

Is it possible to have Musical Spectrum displayed within Foobar? instead of having a separate window pop up of spectrum meter ?
