Whether you’re conducting species inventory, presence/absence surveys, endangered species detection, or habitat health monitoring, Kaleidoscope Pro significantly minimises the time it takes to find what you’re looking for.

This software allows you to set parameters on target frequencies and pulse lengths so that you can get to the useful parts of the recording quickly. GPS information can be extracted (where an appropriate unit with GPS capabilities has been used). The data includes date, time, latitude, longitude, and audio file name data for each trigger. Waypoints at user-defined intervals can also be extracted.

Kaleidoscope Pro also includes a package of classifiers for the UK, Europe, U.S., Neotropic, and South African bat species. Once the files have been processed the results include a margin of confidence and a p-value signifying the maximum likelihood estimator for each classified call. Kaleidoscope viewer allows you to view, analyse and customise spectrograms.

Key Features:
  • Kaleidoscope Viewer (spectrograms)
  • File Converter (convert among WAV, WAC, and Zero-Crossing files)
  • Virtual Call Library
  • Automatic Species ID (North America, Neotropics, U.K., Europe, South Africa)
  • Access to Bat Classifiers
  • High-Speed Batch Processing
  • Data Export Tools
  • Acoustic Cluster Analysis
  • Classifier Creation Tools
  • Noise Analysis Tools


File Conversion: conversion from WAV (16-bit uncompressed PCM), WAC (Wildlife Acoustics Compression) or Zero Crossing to any of these three formats.

Output files: file organisation into daily or nightly sub-directories can be achieved, with the file name including date, time, and Song Meter unit information.

Reduction of false positives - selection or deselection of the species you are interested in.

Cluster Analysis - pattern recognition algorithms to automatically scan wildlife recordings and sort them into clusters of similar sounds. Clusters can be labeled, annotated, or used to create classifiers.

Bat Auto-ID - analysis of recordings of bat echolocations and automatic identification of the most likely bat species.

Sound Level Analysis - analysis of the noise spectrum and generation of a report. Analysis includes weighted SPL and SEL measurements as well as third octave band analysis.

Smart Search & Cloud Storage - secure storage of recordings in the cloud for safe backup, collaboration with others, and notification for when the results are ready.

The software runs on Windows, Linux and Mac operating systems.
