There is a speech analysis product for the mac called Mac SpeechLab.
I haven't used it myself since I'm a NeXT user, so I have no comments
regarding the quality of this tool. It is sold by a company called
GW Instruments. Their address is:

35 Medford St.
Somerville
MA 02143

No, Phil Gaines is not dreaming. Signalyze(TM) 2.0 runs on a
MacPlus with 2 Mb of RAM and all Macs above. It does three
types of pitch extraction: by temporal structure analysis, by
FFT-comb, and by autocorrelation. There are also lots of signal
editing tools and input from MacRecorder, Apple mike,
AudioMedia and MacAdios devices. The program is entirely on the
16 bit-standard. The spectrograms adjust to B/W, 16 and 256
colors/grays. Also included: spectra and cepstra, LPC,
statistics, dB measurement, interpolated signal resampling,
transformations, envelopes, zero passages, filtering and a
simple macro facility. The manual is 224 pages, the on-board
contextual Help is in English and French, and the whole
interface is switchable to English, French and German. The
program is about 700 k at the present.
 Is it "cheap"? Well perhaps: Individual US$350, site US$500.
That's as cheap as is commercially realizeable with a small
market, and at any rate much cheaper than any comparable
competition.

Re Mac Software for Pitch analysis:
We have a freeware UCLA-Uppsala analysis package that will provide quite
good pitch curves of MacRecorder or similar speech files. Write to:
Software Manager, Phonetics Lab, Linguistics Dept, UCLA, Los Angeles,
CA 90024-1543 for our order form. It's $5 for just this disk -
