Query:   Greetings,

I am trying to locate a software package capable of analyzing sung
speech, including tools for analyzing formants, loudness, and
(especially) providing *accurate* pitch tracking (even in the presence
of low level background noise or music) and (ideally) pitch histograms
also, as well as enabling user entry of phonetic/phonemic labelled
segments, and (perhaps) other signal processing operations.

The ideal package would be able to handle long excerpts of several
minutes. With some packages priced in the thousands, cost could be an
issue; if you can recommend products at several price levels please

I'd be most grateful for any advice you can provide.

Thank you very much.
Michael Frishkopf
