Advanced audio analysis for your Mac or PC, and also your iOS device courtesy of IRCAM.

Research experts IRCAM have come up with yet another clever application for working with audio in the form of TheSnail, a multi-talented piece of software that the developers describe as "a very high-precision frequency-domain analyzer that delivers an easy to understand representation of sounds based on the scales and notes aligned in spectrally active zones. It offers a new way of tuning and analyzing an instrument in an extremely accurate way, displaying intonation and visualizing music and sounds in a way that can help anyone improve their listening and intonation."

Currently available as a plugin for Mac OS X and Windows, it is also coming to iOS in the next couple of months.
