Software for finding music frequencies

Recommended Posts

I figured a spectrum analyzer would be a good way to find out what bass frequencies are in some of my music. I downloaded a Windows program today and added a spectrum analysis plugin and got it running. Its fun to play with the real time analysis, you can limit the display to a frequency band, which is what I was hoping for. This is my first attempt at doing this sort of thing so I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong, but the graph looks like a smooth rolling hill and doesn't move much when the bass line hits. I suppose it might have to do with the sample rate or maybe its averaging or maybe that's normal, I have no idea. There are quite a few settings.

Just wanted to find out what you all use to figure out the frequencies of bass notes.

One track I'm trying to analyze:

E-40

The D-Boy Diary

Check

This track really exposes how poorly I have my system set up. The peaks and valleys are extreme on my system.

Another:

E-40

Sharp on all Corners

Jumpin' Like Mine

This plays pretty well but the lowest bass note is too quiet.

I realize there is a thread for posting songs you want people to analyze but I'm more interested in learning how to do it myself.

Thanks for reading.

I'll try using a frequency analyzer on my phone with test tones instead. I'm getting nowhere fast with trying to analyze my source files with software.
