There's a master spectrum view but is there a way to use some static graphical representation of the frequency spectrum to adjust the different samples/instruments?

Something to make it easier to play with the EQ of the tracks with graphical feedback.

This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.

I'm not familiar with Renoise, but according to this tutorial it's possible to configure VSTs for a Windows environment.

So, if you're using Windows, here's your solution:

I personally use MAnalyzer.

If you don't like any of the solutions OR you're not using Windows you should try googling: spectrum analyzer

I'm aware that you did ask for a 'static' graphical analyzer, but I'm wondering if you're problem is that the master spectrum is capturing the whole song instead of a single channel.

And btw: I really wouldn't recommend anyone to do audio changes based on a graphical spectrum - music is about what you hear, and not what you listen.

While doing that is fine when experimenting, it shouldn't become something you do all the time.
