Figure 4.33. Analyzer View Settings

On this dialog you can choose the appearance and behaviour of the Analyzer View.

Analyzer Display

This selects the kind of analysis that you want to show. The main analyzer window can show a single view, or it can be split into a long-term view (for the spectrogram) and short-term view (for the spectrum). If both views are active, the cursor position in the long-term view determines the content of the short-term view.

The spectrum shows a graph of intensity per frequency. The spectrogram shows how the spectrum changes over time. Pitch shows the fundamental frequency. Showing neither spectrogram nor pitch can useful if you want to work with the Overtone Sliders alone.

Scroll Mode

The Scroll Mode determines what happens when the time cursor reaches the end of the visible range during recording and playback.


Keeps the time cursor at fixed position and scrolls the window to the left.


Switches to a new empty page and then moves the time cursor across the page.

Spectrum Type

Here you can select various options for the appearance of the spectrum.

Pitch Display

These options allow you to customize the appearance of the pitch display. The current note always corresponds to the fundamental pitch at the current cursor position.

Display current note name

If the short-term view is active, the name of the current note is displayed on top of the spectrum.

Display frequency

If the short-term view is active, the frequency of the current pitch will be shown in Hz on top of the spectrum.

Show current note on piano and staff view

If this is checked, the current note is highlighted on the piano, and shown as musical note on the staff view.
