Hardware rackmounted Spectrum Analyzer...?

Hi,

Does anyone know of any other brands that produce these items (it's a spectral RTA realtime analyzer):


Alto: Products

I was looking for one a bit more comprehsive and clear. Preferably midrange priced though... not overly scientific or vintage.

I do always use my ears when mixing, but one of these could be handy, and nice to look at too.

Thanks,
Dara.

The Klark Teknik DN360 seams to be a common model in the high end.
A cheaper alternative is
Behringer ULTRA-CURVE PRO DSP8024.
Audio Source Model EQ-One is another one if you can find one secondhand.

Hrm... thanks guys. I was kinda looking for more of a graphic representation 20hz-20khz type of thing, rather than an paragraphic EQ tool with an analyzer stuck on. Just something to stick in the rack as a visual referance when recording.

See the blue/green spectral LCD readout in the centre rack?




Something like that would be perfect... considering that's actually what it does, and it's not just a 31band eq with a nice display instead. Anybody know what it is..?

Cheers lads.

I found this one too:


Klark Teknik DN6000

But it's about €3500. Eek...

I can highly recommend the older brother, Klark Teknik DN60, because it has analogue filters before the AD-conversion, which means not FFT-filterband latency and VERY accurate representation of the bass frequencies. All frequency-bands reacts at the same time and the frequency-band crossover is fenomonally low.

I love it to death. Saves me a lot of time when mixing and mastering, because it adds a visual element that IMHO is very useful.

I have yet to see a digital spectrum analyzer with coherent frequency response from 20 to 20kHz.

Klark Teknik DN60 is the best spectrum analyzer for dynamic content that I've found so far.


Cheers
Frederick
