Linguistic LingField(s):  Computational Linguistics

Query:   I am about to buy some speech analysis software for the Mac, and after
speaking to several colleagues and reading past postings on LINGUIST, I had
just about decided on Signalyze. However, a couple of people pointed out
the following problems with Signalyze: clicks when recording, near
impossibility of importing/exporting sound files, can only deal with one
file at a time, maximum about 30 seconds length.

I am wondering whether anyone else out there has had these problems, knows
how to avoid/solve these problems, or could suggest better software.

I want something relatively cheap with which to perform basic
spectrographic analysis. I'll be running it on a Mac with 64MB RAM and a
4GB hard drive. I'll be recording on regular audio cassette so the software
has to be able to digitise this.

Cheers, and thanks in advance,
