Splitting audio into frequency bands for spectrum analysis

    Nov 02 2013 | 12:54 pm
    I'm in the process of building a basic metering plugin consisting of a goniometer and a spectrum analyzer similar to Logic Pro's Multimeter (see below).
    My question is how will i go about splitting the incoming audio signal into frequency bands, and what is best to use for displaying such a thing?
    i have included my patch, which so far includes some rough ideas for what i thought may be needed.
