Description of Spectroid
Why are the dB values negative?A: Spectroid uses dBFS (Full Scale) where 0 dB is the maximum power that the microphone can measure, so the decibel values are negative because the measured power is less than the maximum power.Q: Can I zoom in on the spectrum plot?A: Yes, do a two-finger pinch-to-zoom gesture.Q: Why are there discontinuities/gaps in the spectrum plot and waterfall?A: Spectroid uses multiple FFTs overlapped in frequency in order to provide better frequency resolution at lower frequencies than a single FFT. The caveat of this method is varied impulse response and minor discontinuities in frequency. The upside is that it can efficiently produce a spectrum that better matches the frequency resolution of human audio perception. It's still probably not as good as your ears though!
