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

I heard that Bodo Maass is working on a Mac version of the Overtone Analyzer. Maybe you ask him ...

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.

If I create group "International overtone numbering" to discuss an international overtone numbering system who of You would join? :)
Comment by Filip Rydlo on July 3, 2008 at 10:43pm
Good idea, Stuart!

Well, I use Sibelius 3 for writing down scores of overtone melodies which I would like to learn. And I really like this software. I usually create one "tenor"-G-key and another G-key above it with "flute" instrument and I transpose it "sounding octave higher" - so there appears little "eight" symbol in upper index of the G-key. While writing the notes I put there also numbers under the tenor part. (We probably all know: Overtones are two times, three times, four times etc... higher than the base freqency), so I write there the "number of times" the freq.is higher - just like it is numbered in Overtone Analyzer! :)

I dislike other numberings! I feel it only mystify me and people that use it. But I have seen one, yesterday! Oh, how terrible experience for me. :(
I would like to create discussion here, or maybe a new group for this topic, about overtone numbering system.

And when I cannot find some tone by hearing it then
I use Overtone Analyzer to find out. :)
