    Any recomendations for an Audio Spectrogram?


    Hi..

    I'm having some voice coaching. I need an application that gives a live audio spectrogram analysis of the microphone input. I've taken a look at Audacity but as far as I can see it can only provide one from an already saved file. I need to do it live. My tutor has given me one but of course that is in Windows and I would much prefer to do it in Linux.
    So any suggestions for spectrogram or other voice analysis applications for Linux?

    Thanks!

    I haven't used it, but praat might suit your needs.

    Here is a list of other audio related programs. No idea how up to date it is or whether the listed projects are maintained.

    Ah yes Praat (Dutch for talk). I wasn't aware of it but initial impressions are that it might do the job. Thanks for the link!

    Well I installed Praat. While it seems to be a sophisticated application it doesn't seem to offer any facility to give me a live spectrogram display of the microphone input (at least that I can see..please correct me if I'm wrong)

    What I need is quite simple. I need to be able to monitor the frequency of the voice, i.e microphone, input live for voice training purposes. Nothing more really. I can find all sorts of Linux spectrogram apps but they all seem to work from a pre-recorded file not live.
    So for right now I'm stuck with a simple Windows application. I may just have to run it using Wine but would prefer a native Linux one.

    So if anyone has any further ideas?

    Thanks
