Audio Engineering Spectre

Audiofile Engineering has released version 1.5 of Spectre, a multi-instrument real-time audio analyzer for Mac OS X.

Spectre focuses squarely on live audio analysis by offering 17 different multi-channel and multi-trace meters. Each meter can have any number of traces or indicators, and each trace can have it’s own number of input channels, gain, mixing, filtering, ballistics and color (including transparency). You can have as many meters (or copies of meters) as your screen will allow! Spectre also gives you very precise control over color gradients.
