Indeed, Chris' dayjob is making your crackberry's software work.

BTW. He is quite isolated from the usual audio lit... feel free to send him interesting or relevant pdf articles.

Just got back confirmation that Fuzzmeasure does not provide the standard FFT plots, instead they provide 2nd and 3rd harmonic full range distortion plots. Not exactly what I was hoping for, but I'll see how the demo does.

Quite a bit more money to get all the plug-ins for Mac the Scope, but it does have the features.

Room EQ Wizard is written in Java, is Mac compatible (in addition to Windows and Linux), and is actively being updated. A major update to v5.00 was released just a couple weeks ago.

No luck so far. Room EQ Wizard refuses to permit calibration of the sound card; I get back errors about impulse response, and no matter what I do cannot get around it. Even trying an uncalibrated FFT, I get meaningless results- certainly nothing like their screenshots. I verified clean sine wave outputs and clean sine inputs, but still garbage results.

Mac the Scope, far as I can tell, will do RTA but not FFT.

Fuzzmeasure does not do FFT.

Any other options?

This is a long shot but the NIH has some public domain (boy have we paid for it) programs with FFT capability in JAVA so they are browser not platform based. Start by looking for NIH-IMAGEJ (I might have this wrong, it's been a long time).

Well, I have never been one to insist Mac or Win was the answer for everything; use whichever platform performs the task best.

In this case, I have had much better results with AudioTester and Arta on the PC. Specifically, running as a spectrum analyzer, with low emphasis on mic-RTA. Might even experiment to see how they perform in a virtual machine, so I can still use the Mac at home. Prices are more than reasonable, and I can use full functionality in demo mode for now.

In case anyone ventures down the same path.

Have you checked out Baudline? To me it looks very promising, but I don't know that much anyway.

baudline signal analyzer - FFT spectrogram (and it is FREE)
