Spectrograms and Spectral Analyzers in Linux

Post by Plug&Play »

This is an astonishing demo of overtone singing, and I wonder if there is any Linux software that is close to this analyzer.
At minute 3:20 she introduces the spectrogram, at 16:30 the final demo
TEDxGenova | Anna-Maria Hefele

Some of her talk included MRI of her sound track, and obviously that was pre-recorded. The spectral analyzer is operating in real time.

Is there anything like this available in Linux?
I am trying to improve my vocal capabilities ( and jaw harp too) and I think some visual feedback might help.
JAAA and JAPA will probably be enough help, tbut that streaming visual representation is amazing!

This one comes close and works in real time - http://friture.org/ . The 2D Spectrogram display is similar to the one in the presentation. Doesn't have the ability to isolate frequency bands like the VoceVista program shown there, but then it costs infinitely less money ie.free. Only comes as Appimage or source, no distro packages unfortunately.
Friture is free and open-source, licensed under the GPLv3+.

The 2D spectrogram widget display on tribute looks like it isolates bands: it was messy because the signal was complex.
Thanks!
