We're partnering with ERM to provide bat acoustics training courses

We know that the demand for training courses is always high, so we are happy to announce that we are partnering with Environmental Resources Management to provide several bat acoustics training courses in 2017.

The first of these is a 3-day, hands-on bat acoustics and analysis training course. It's taking place from January 9-11, 2017 in Amherst, Massachusetts and immediately precedes the Northeast Bat Working Group meeting in the same location, making it convenient for those who are already planning to attend the meeting. 

The course will cover bat echolocation, data management, visual vetting, troubleshooting, and more. Participants will also learn how to use the Wildlife Acoustics Song Meter SM4BAT, Echo Meter Touch, and Kaleidoscope Pro software. 

Making the move from Song Scope to Kaleidoscope 4.0

Making the move from Song Scope to Kaleidoscope 4.0

Earlier this week, we announced our breakthrough new product, Kaleidoscope Pro 4.0 with Cluster Analysis.

Kaleidoscope 4.0  allows you to quickly sort through massive acoustic audio recording collections to detect vocalizations and sort them according to similarity into "clusters" which can then be quickly reviewed, marked, and exported to other statistical analysis tools like Excel, R, and MatLab.  These clusters can also be used to create classifiers which can find those similar vocalizations in your other recording data. 

You may have built classifiers (recognizers) in the past using our Song Scope software. If so, we believe you will be even happier with how easy and efficient it is to build classifiers with the new Cluster Analysis feature in Kaleidoscope Pro 4.0.

Behind the newest hidden feature in Kaleidoscope 2.0

You may be aware that the latest version of our spectrogram analysis software has just been released.

Kaleidoscope 2.0 has been rebuilt from the ground up, and includes new classifiers as well as a new feature known as the Virtual Call Library.

But wait...what is a Virtual Call Library anyway?

Simply put, it is our brand new feature that allows you to visually understand why the software chose to identify the pass as a particular species.
