I rarely used mathmatica, but I'm pretty sure this was matlab in the background. Labview sounds vaguely familiar but its been a long time. Anyway, sorry for the digression.
LabVIEW is a standalone, measurement software which has many-many add-on modules, which port different types of analysis and reporting. The Full Version comes with Signal Express, which is a rather neat app, which permits the development of quick and easy visual interfaces and measurement displays.
The software, directly communicates with many frontends and as such, permits more complex analysis over that of most dedicated audio analyzers. It also permits customized reporting of the measured data. Data logging is very useful.
LabVIEW and MATLAB can exchange data and run parallel, sharing resource while running routines.
I will most definitely be using LabVIEW to improve the communication of the measurements that I capture. It's adding up to me having to create a custom test and report routine, which will save a bunch of time, post development. I need to firstly determine the actual context / scope of work.
It reads like you have a related, professional background. If I am properly inferring such, I welcome your assistance, in translating the measurements that I post, into a common, relatable language, if you will.
I can be matter of fact to a fault, which helps some, but in equal portion can leave others mostly in the dark/frustrated.
Hardly a digression, cheers.
