the spectrum view is really great, but sometimes you need to determine an exact frequency. For example currently I work on a synbass, that is already compressed and sounds good overall. But since it uses unison and a chorus, sometimes a special bass frequency will stick out for a moment.
Now I would like to exactly find this bass frequency. Of course I can see a lot on the spectrum, I could search for the highest amplitude. But this isn’t so precise.
Instead what about adding a “simple sine generator”, that is always available in the spectrum view and generates a sine sound on mouse-down (or some shortcut + mouse), exactly with the clicked frequency and volume…? I think this would be so helpful to quickly find a frequency by ear*!
What do you think?
*P.S: And then, in my dreams, there would be an option on right click: “setup dynamic eq with this frequency and volume margin”
