Is there a chance you will be adding a mouse over frequency/ note readout? This and optional spectrum weighting would both be amazing. This thing is stunningly versatile without the drawbacks of standard fft analyzers. It is already amazing for helping out with sound design.
Really happy to hear that you found a use for it, not only me then that has a use for this :-D
I'm planning to do a post-challenge release with all of the requested features that popped up during the challenge.

I'm not sure I got what you meant with 'optional spectrum weighting'? What would it do?
Many analyzers will let you add a curve/ tilt to the display to more closely represent how the human ear hears etc. basically weighting the spectrum to where a level at the low frequency end is as strong to the eye as a level in the high frequencies even though they aren’t actually equal in power.

If you run pink noise through the seeker, you will see that it is already flat? That's partly why I did the plug-in in the first place, because I hate how most FFT-based analyzers don't show an audibly flat signal as a flat spectrum.

What would be the use-case of seeing it weighted like FFT-style analyzers? I've not seen any analog analyzers do that. The way it displays now is the way the human ear perceives sound, so that each bar should sound equally loud independent of frequency, if they show the same level in the graph.

I like having it weighted like pink noise. It's just handy to be able to manipulate that curve. You can do things like correct for your room and such depending on how flexible it is. pink noise is definitely the way to go if it's not configurable.
