how do you install and use it?


You download the zip and drag it into foobar's File - Preferences - Components list.

Check out the View menu to display it.

the link in the first post is for default UI only. if you check post #6, it has a version that works with columns.

That would be even more awesome to have an option of showing freq instead of notes.

Or there's a plugin which shows spectrum in all audible range labeled with actual freqs?

Well, that's the weird part... the default included Spectrum does show frequencies along the bottom, Seems to depend on the number of bars visible... with just 40 bars they always show but go to 80 or 160 and they only show if you've got a wall screen...

PS. if you have tooltips enabled for the Musical one it shows the frequency in the tooltip together with the corresponding note... not the same but at least you can find out which freq goes with which note

EDIT: Argh. completely forgot the default included Spectrum can't be shoved into a panel in Columns UI...

Was going to ask the same thing but since you didn't get an answer I'm guessing this isn't possible. Was looking for a way to flip it upside down (mirrored).

Edit: Never mind, found it. Yes, I'm blind.

I would just like to say, what a smokin awesome job,, such a incredibly useful tool for mastering engineers,, why cant the people we pay nearly 1,000 bucks come up with something as useful as this! many thanks  man! keep u the great work! i cant wait to see what you will come up with next..How about some super peak meters! ! just awesome work! Many thanks!

Thank you very much for this useful eyecandy. I love the possibility to adjust the frequency range. I was looking for a Default UI spectrum analyzer that displayed frequencies below 50 Hz for quite a time and now I finally found this little plugin that even looks awesome with default settings. Very happy about that!

I've got one favor to ask though: The frequency is now being displayed in the tooltip; would you please make it possible to show the frequencies at the top / bottom labels? Also, if the number of bars would be adjustable then this plugin would leave no more desired.

Feature Request - in peak hold mode, I'd like to be able to set gravity to a very low value.  The setting appears to be limited to integer values, i. e., it will not accept a decimal point.

I listen to a lot of downloaded audience concert recordings.  I've been experimenting with using the Foobar equalizer along with your spectrum display with peak-hold as a rough tool for spectral sculpting.  (Have you noticed that the eq's  bands are all, effectively, at A & D#?)  I expand the amplitude to 80 dB, & the bandwidth out to D#10 (19.912 kHz - close enuff to 20 for gov't work, amirite?), and I put splitters in the display areas for the spectrum & eq to align A1 with the 55 Hz slider, and A9 (14080 - anybody wanna quibble?) with 14k.  This aligns the eq sliders very nicely with the the spectral display.  I enable peak hold, with a very long hold times (a minute or more!), and have been playing with gravity values.

The scheme would work ideally with a VERY slow peak decay - 1 is quite a bit too fast for this purpose, but 0 will hold the extreme peaks forever, so that's no good either.  I'm trying to tweak the peak decay, via hod & gravity, to work as a sort of an averager.  Not what they're designed for, I know, but I come from an applications engineering background, and finding new ways to use existing tools is sorta what I do.  Anyhow, a fractional setting would be an interesting thing to experiment with.

Just wondering of this is possible - thanks for a really useful tool, in any event.

Why does my install not want to run musical spec even though I have pasted it into both components and the main folder. anyone have any ideas..
