Software for Real Time
Analysis of Musical Sounds
For Macintoshes with Sound Input
Created in 1999 by Timothy J. Madden and James W. Beauchamp
Edited by Boon Pang Lim in 2001OS Notes: Armadillo works in real time and non-real time (with aiff files) under Mac OS 8.x and 9.x and in Classic Mode under OS 10.2-4.
The primary objective of Armadillo is to provide a convenient way to quickly analyze musical sounds on an inexpensive computer without the need for specialized hardware. The development of high speed computers with excellent graphics and high quality audio I/O in the 1990's made this possible. While a number of analysis programs have been available on PC or Macintosh platforms, there are few that are dedicated to the analysis of musical sounds as Armadillo is.
