Dear list,

I just wanted to let you know about some new software that may be of 
interest. SPEAR (Sinusoidal Partial Editing Analysis and Resynthesis) 
is an application that implements sinusoidal analysis (MQ/PARSHL 
style) and a full-featured GUI. It supports flexible selection and 
immediate manipulation of analysis data, cut and paste, and unlimited 
undo/redo. Hundreds of simultaneous partials can be synthesized in 
real-time and documents may contain thousands of individual partials 
dispersed in time. It also supports a variety of standard file 
formats for the import and export of analysis data.

If you are already working with other analysis/synthesis systems such 
as ATS, Loris or SNDAN, you can import your analysis data into SPEAR 
for editing. The native file format is SDIF 1TRC, but you can also 
export your data into text files. Rick Taube has generously added 
some functions to CM (currently in CVS -- see spectral.scm) for 
importing these text files. Native SDIF support for CM is planned for 
the future.

More information and downloads at:


Currently it is built for MacOS X, MacOS 9 and Windows (probably 2000 
or later).

If you find it useful, please spread the word, and do let me know if 
you have suggestions or encounter bugs.

Best regards,

Michael Klingbeil
