With all the media and 3D graphics capabilities available on modern hardware I'd like to see a nice visualisation application that listens to the microphone.

If anyone knows the G-Force winamp plugin they know what I'm talking about.


Some 3rd-party apps can do this, such as:

  • Spectral Audio Analyzer

    Free real-time audio analyser with 8 kHz spectral bandwidth. Display any sort of audio from the microphone as a coloured spectrogram. Identify environmental noise, search for annoying tones, view harmonic patterns of instruments and voices, analyse the frequency range of your speaker... .

  • Ah thanks very much, I hadn't found those. The AudioScope one is getting there but none are anything close to G-Force or Milkdrop or anything like that. I'm sure given time something will appear in the market. These are still handy analysers though!
