BuzzMac Software has three titles that it’s hoping to ship soon, and it has put out a call for beta-testers interested in shaking down its offerings. The company is presently working on Instrument Tuner 2.0, Buzz-o-sonic 3.0 and Buzz-o-sonic (EM) 3.0.
Instrument Tuner 2.0 has been developed to make it easy to tune an instrument quickly and consistently. It uses a pitch meter and a built-in QuickTime synthesizer, enabling you to either tune by ear or use the built-in meter. The final version will cost US$25.
Buzz-o-sonic 3.0 is an audio spectrum analyzer that sports a frequency range of 10Hz to 20kHz. The software has been developed to measure the resonant frequencies of impulse-excited ceramics and elastic solids, according to BuzzMac Software. The new version eschews the previous versions’ requirement for having Microsoft Excel installed. Currently used in the ceramics industry, Buzz-o-sonic 3.0 will cost $550 on release.
Finally, Buzz-o-sonic (EM) 3.0 is a version of the spectrum analyzer that has been developed for middle/high-school science, weather research and other analysis. This version excludes the calculation of elastic constants of impulse-excited solids, according to BuzzMac. Registration for this version will cost $55.
