Did you ever used a analyser vst in FL Studio?

Did you ever used a analyser vst in FL Studio? It helps improving your mix. In this article I will explain what a analyser vst does and how to use those plugins. I also will recommend two free analyser plugins that are useful for your projects.


What does a analyser vst do?

As the name suggests, a analyser plugin is used to analyse sound. It is a EQ but without the knobs to make adjustments. The free plugins I use are also more precise visualizing frequenties peaks. The reason to use a analyser besides it’s more precies, is that it comes with extra settings like “peak tracking”, compare your sound to other genres, pausing the screen, adjust the speed of the movements, changing the background and much more (See image 1).

The Manalyser vst is a really nice plugin, I use it in my FL Studio template project for almost every song I produce. Usually I use to much bass in my tracks, thanks to the analyser it is easier to see the levels of you low bass sounds.  If you gonna use the Manalyser plugin I can recommend to use the “compare to pop” preset. You can also turn on “track peaks” by clicking: settings – graph – track peaks. As you can see in image 1 the background is a sonogram colors. This is not standard, it is also a setting. Just fool around with it and see what you like.
