Is there anyway to analyze the EQ of a bass master track?

    I have a lot of bass master tracks, is there any tool I could use to analyze what their EQ settings were? Maybe get a graph of the most prominent frequencies?
     
  2. You could use a spectrum analyzer but that would only give you a general idea. The waveform/sound is actually very complex.
     
  3. Har-bal software will analyze the track and show the frequency plot. It's really meant for mastering. But I've found the visual information helpful even when I wasn't applying any processing.

    A spectrum analyzer is what you really need.

    There's a lot of vst spectrum analyzers available. The whole point of a spectrum analyzer is to illustrate the intensity of signal across a frequency spectrum. A good one will have a setting that shows the max intensity at each frequency slot and this will roughly show the equalization if you believe the original source was flat.

    +1 on the spectrum analyzer

    This one is cool

    I got a lite version photosounder spiral in an issue of computer music. It's cool in that it's wrapped in a spiral and shows the harmonics stacked up. It's an interesting visual twist.

    Any free ones?
