I'm checking into this sleepy forum to tell you about some software that runs on iOs devices. It's great to have tools like this in your pocket!
There are a number of real-time spectrogram programs you can look at for your iPhone or iPad , just search for Spectrogram and you'll find a few. I like Spectral EyePro because it lays out the spectrum in a logarithmic spiral, which just happens to be the same way I visualize intervals in my program Droneo.
Droneo is a drone synthesizer which lets you specify eight simultaneous droning voices. The pitch of each voice is made from a interval over a shared base pitch. These intervals can be specified in cents, as just ratios, or as degrees of equal divisions of other intervals. It itself has a number of timbres, including timbres that change their harmonic content randomly over time. It fits in well with this community of overtone singers and players. It was featured in Pauline Oliveros' Droniphonia (2009). Take a peek: Droneo Website

HARMONIC VISION 1.8.1 software program, 1998-2008. We announce completion of our latest version of this Macintosh/Max Runtime-based audiovisualization program which tracks notes, harmonics 1-32, with advance coloration and shaping of cymatics forms and interaction of harmonics 1-12, and other key features used in my Harmonic Vision compositions. For information, contact harmonicvision@gmail.org

Hi Sol,
sorry but I see your comment only now. This is not the right place to ask something because here there is not a feedback control, so we cannot know when people write a comment. You must write as a reply on a forum above, then you can click on the FOLLOW ME button, so you will receive a email when people will answer to you.
I don' use EGG. It can be a very important tool, but for me it si not necessary. If you want try it with a little fee you can buy the complete set of Vocevista, 50 euro for book (with a good explanation about EGG)+software and 700/800 euro for EGG.

To opera singer I suggest Overtone Analyzer and Adobe Audition.
For free I suggest a software that allow you to see sonogram and spectrogram in real time, like Visual Analyzer.
Can be, in the future, there will be an "Overtone Analyzer" free demo version.

Hi, Marco.

I've been seeing the software lists and it refreshed the beat knowledge I acquared in University Music School (UNAM) mainly.
Although my teacher is not specialized in singing voice, he studied his PH Degree in Acoustic at Dept of Speech, Music and Hearing at KTH, Sweden.

That's why I wish ask you some tutorials about the electroglottografh non invasive uses, becouse VOCEVISTA package does not includes the EEG.
By other way, is affordable to get EEG by themselves, but must know wich friendly softwares use with, even with
interface for clinical voice analyses.

The aim I'm looking for is the behavoir and re-education of vocal folds.
Would you give me some guidance about the best way to acquire the EGG set, without caring the model?

Thank you
Best regards
