Hi
is there a way to make Spek portable with yaP yet another Portablizer?
Spek (IPA: /spɛk/, ‘bacon’ in Dutch) helps to analyse your audio files by showing their spectrogram. Spek is free software available for Unix, Windows and Mac OS X.
  • Supports all popular lossy and lossless audio file formats thanks to the FFmpeg libraries.
    Ultra-fast signal processing, uses multiple threads to further speed up the analysis.
    Shows the codec name and the audio signal parameters.
    Allows to save the spectrogram as an image file.
    Drag-and-drop support; associates with common audio file formats.
    Auto-fitting time, frequency and spectral density rulers.
    Adjustable spectral density range.
    Translated into 19 languages.
it's really a cool utility to analyze audio , i can't find a portable tool in the main page
thanks

There seem to be 2 download options for Windows users ...
1. MSI file - clearly an installation file
2. Zip file - intended as a portable version (unpack and run)

I don't know if it is stealth etc, but clearly "absolute" portability will not be an issue as it has FFmpeg dependencies.

So, in summary, a portable version is available.
