Kaleidoscope Pro 5 Analysis Software

Analyze terabytes of acoustic or ultrasonic recordings quickly and easily.

Kaleidoscope Pro is an integrated suite of software tools that let you cluster and visualize recordings, automatically identify bats, and analyze sound.

Kaleidoscope Pro 5 features:

Cluster Analysis

Identify species and create custom classifiers, fast.

The Breakthrough of Cluster Analysis

Within minutes, Kaleidoscope Pro can quickly analyze thousands of recording files. The software detects and identifies similar vocalizations and groups them into Clusters. This innovative feature eliminates hours of tedious listening, making it easy to examine vocalizations, label recordings, and identify species. Kaleidoscope Pro can also transform Clusters into species-specific classifiers – making future identification efforts easier.

Auto ID Image

In addition to Cluster Analysis, Kaleidoscope Pro includes auto-ID bat classifiers that suggest the most likely species of bat found in the recordings. Currently, Kaleidoscope Pro helps you identify bat species from North America, the U.K., Europe, South Africa, and the Neotropics – with more regions and species in development. We also work continuously to improve the accuracy of existing classifiers.
