Snail 是一款非常高精度的频域分析仪,可根据频谱活跃区域中对齐的音阶和音符提供直观的声音表示。

它可作为 Mac 和 Windows 操作系统的独立应用程序以及 AAX、AU 和 VST3 插件使用。


Snail 的内部工作原理包括两种模式和三种不同的显示视图

音乐模式 – 最适合观看您的音乐,例如它包含复杂的和弦内容。

调谐器模式 – 是帮助调谐仪器的首选,因为它提高了分析的分辨率。

Snail View – 实时提供基频和所有相关谐波或泛音的表示。

声音从中心的低频到螺旋形 GUI 上的较高频率(及其各自的音符)沿螺旋形视图显示为“斑点”。

缩放调谐器视图 – 显示六边形形状,当您在准确的参考频率上将零调零到绿色时,它会旋转并减速。


Sonogram View – 提供声谱随时间(垂直)的更标准表示,突出显示主要频率。


The Snail is a very high-precision frequency-domain analyzer that delivers an intuitive representation of sounds based on the scales and notes aligned in spectrally active zones.

It is available as a Standalone application for Mac and Windows OS, and AAX, AU and VST3 plug-in.

This plug-in offers a new way of tuning and analyzing an instrument in an extremely accurate way. It displays the intonation and visualizes music and sounds in a way that can help anyone improve their listening and intonation!

The inner workings of Snail comprises of two modes and three different display views

The Modes
Music Mode – is the most suitable to view your music with, if for instance it contains complex polyphonic content.

Tuner Mode – is the preferred to help tune an instrument as it increases the resolution of the analysis.

The Display Views
Snail View – provides a representation of the fundamental frequencies and all related harmonics or overtones in real time.

Sound is displayed as ‘blobs’ along a spiralled view from the low frequencies in the center to higher frequencies (and their respective musical notes) up the spiral GUI.

Zoomed Tuner View – displays the hexagonal shape which rotates and slows down as you zero down to green on the exact reference frequency.

This display is the closest view to a traditional tuner while being incredibly more precise.

Sonogram View – offers a more standard representation of the sound spectrum over time (vertically), highlighting the prevailing frequencies.
