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. 

"Should I Update My Firmware?"

"Should I Update My Firmware?"

What is firmware?

Firmware is software that is embedded inside of hardware. In this case, the hardware is a bioacoustics recorder.

What does a firmware update do?

Firmware updates often improve the function of the hardware in some way, such as making it compatible with other devices, debugging it, or adding new features.

Why should I update my firmware?

Updating firmware helps users avoid running into bugs that we have already identified and fixed or adds functionality.

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.
