As the name suggests, with a analyser vst you can analyse sounds. It is a EQ but without the knobs to make adjustments but with extra settings to analyse your mix. The free plugins I use are also more precise for analyzing frequenties peaks. Besides 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).
