Winamp Spectrum analyzer is much more equal

I'd also love to have Winamp's spectrum analyzer as a VST plugin just because I'm so used to looking at it while listening to music with Winamp.

Haven't found it yet though.

But maybe by "CURVE" you actually mean the "slope" of an analyzer ?

This can be adjusted in Voxengo Span for example.

Here's a post talking about it a little, if you shouldn't be familiar with it.

Justin, the guy who created Winamp, also created the DAW called Reaper. They have a bunch of Free Reaper plugins that can be used for Windows and I believe Mac OS as well. If you can't get an answer here, maybe try the Reaper forum. Good luck and feel free to report back your findings if you do get an answer.

I did not know that! Winamp was my go-to for many years. I pretty much grew up on it. Got the Reaper demo as I'm considering moving away from Live but haven't tried it out yet. This bit of info has blown my mind!

Thanks guys. Glad that I can help.

I checked and Reaper does indeed have free spectral analysis tools. Here is the full list. They are in js (jeausonic format native to reaper). But on the reaper website you can download the JS plugins for free to use and I believe they have vst/au wrappers so you can use any of these tools in any DAW.

Analysis Tools in JS Format:
JS: Analysis/compscope
JS: Analysis/compscope_src
JS: Analysis/fft_noise_generator
JS: Analysis/gfxanalyzer
JS: Analysis/gfxscope
JS: Analysis/gfxspectrograph
JS: Analysis/spectropaint
JS: Analysis/zoomanalyzer

Also, check out the reaeq/reacomp (with built in analyzers) that you can also download for free that is for Reaper but also can be used in vst/au format in any DAW:
