Absolute Tuning & Sound Visualization

The Snail is a very high-precision frequency-domain analyzer that delivers an intuitive representation of sounds based on the scales and notes aligned in spectrally active zones.

It is available as a Standalone application for Mac and Windows OS, and AAX, AU and VST3 plug-in.

This plug-in offers a new way of tuning and analyzing an instrument in an extremely accurate way. It displays the intonation and visualizes music and sounds in a way that can help anyone improve their listening and intonation!


The inner workings of Snail comprises of two modes and three different display views :

The Modes:

  • Music Mode - is the most suitable to view your music with, if for instance it contains complex polyphonic content.
  • Tuner Mode - is the preferred to help tune an instrument as it increases the resolution of the analysis.
The Display Views:
  • Snail View - provides a representation of the fundamental frequencies and all related harmonics or overtones in real time. Sound is displayed as 'blobs' along a spiralled view from the low frequencies in the center to higher frequencies (and their respective musical notes) up the spiral GUI.
  • Zoomed Tuner View - displays the hexagonal shape which rotates and slows down as you zero down to green on the exact reference frequency. This display is the closest view to a traditional tuner while being incredibly more precise.
  • Sonogram View - offers a more standard representation of the sound spectrum over time (vertically), highlighting the prevailing frequencies. This view provides more detail of the frequencies' energy for analysis.
