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.
Explore Kaleidoscope Pro:
Label recordings and create custom classifiers, fast.
Within minutes, Kaleidoscope Pro can quickly analyze thousands of ultrasonic or acoustic recording files. The software detects similar vocalizations, and groups them into Clusters. This innovative feature eliminates hours of tedious listening, making it much easier to examine vocalizations and label recordings.
For acoustic recording files, Kaleidoscope Pro's clustering technology lets you build your own classifiers from known recordings to help you find matching patterns in new recordings.
Auto-ID Bat Classifiers
Identify bat species faster.
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.
Listen, view, identify and label.
For examining ultrasonic and acoustic sound files visually, Kaleidoscope includes an easy-to-use viewer that displays the details of each recording. Listen to recordings, apply bandpass filters, and adjust playback speed and amplitude. For bat work, the Viewer works with full-spectrum, time-expansion or zero-crossing recordings.
Kaleidoscope Viewer is FREE!
After your Kaleidoscope Pro Trial expires, you can continue to use Kaleidoscope Viewer and Kaleidoscope File Converter, free-of-charge.

A complete online solution. Cloud Storage brings all of your bioacoustic files together in a single, easy-to-access location – right from within Kaleidoscope Pro. Your files will be secure and backed-up. And becuase they're in the cloud, you'll be able to share files and metdata with other Kaleidoscope Pro users.
Cloud Database provides fast and easy access to all the meta data contained in your recordings. Quickly search for any combination of meta data. Add custom fields and create custom project forms – ideal for standardized meta data used for projects and initiatives such as the North American Bat Monitoring Program (NABat).
Together with Cloud-Based Storage, this convenient feature takes the processing burden from your computer. This powerful feature is well-suited for analyzing large batches of files. Use it when your computer is too slow, you're on the road, or you just need to focus on other tasks.
File Sharing and Collaboration
Designed for geographically dispersed teams who need to share bioacoustic recording files and meta data. User access is easily controlled from within your Managed Cloud account. Invite as many other Kaleidoscope Pro subscribers as you like, and control what each user has access to.
The Kaleidoscope Pro Noise Analysis feature allows you to scan a batch of recordings to analyze the noise spectrum and generate a report of noise levels in accordance with various standards. Analysis includes weighted SPL and SEL measurements as well as third octave band analysis.
Easy Report Generation
Kaleidoscope Pro presents the cluster or classifier results in a table that's easily exported into Excel and other applications for pivot table and chart creation.
