Thank you guys! The basic setup for monitoring a single signal is a very useful technique... I'm stucked at the how to set Span/C♭B so I can see the freq. spectrum of >1 track in a single Span instance.

AFAIK,

SPAN works on one track at a time

Multi-track require SPAN Pro 

The Vogengo descriptions are a little confusing as both support

multi-channel analysis, and can be set to display spectrums from two different channels or channel groups at the same time. 

This is not the same as multiple tracks. 

Note the additional info in the SPAN Pro description (emphasis added)

SPAN Plus is an extended version of the freeware SPAN plugin: SPAN Plus provides several additional features such as PNG file export, real-time spectrum import/export for cross-track spectrum comparisons, static spectrums display, and a “wide” display mode.

I know you gonna laugh at me but the thing is that months ago when I started learning C♭B, previous REAPER trial period, I actually managed to have 2 tracks, and their own freq. spectrums, analyzed in real time in a single Span window. Span was running in a exclusive BUS, just beside the MASTER BUS... I'm not gonna rely on my memory but that was sort of a SEND and/or PLUGIN PROPERTY setting, can't recall, anyway... Tomorrow is my day off and I gonna try to accomplish it again.

Cakewalk makes three additional stereo inputs available to SPAN giving you a total of four. I think some of the videos talk about that. I don't think the one suggested above talks about using multiple inputs. I usually put span in a Group or Mix bus. Once SPAN is loaded in the bus, I go to up to three of the tracks feeding the Group or Mix bus and assign sends to the additional three inputs allowing me to analyze all four track spectrums and overlay one over another. Only two spectrum graphs can be displayed at a time.

Exactly. The first SEND/TRACK must go alone to the BUS running SPAN. Other 3 kind of goes like a Sidechain SEND, and are named SPAN Input 1 that actually will work as MID/SIDE comparison and is, in fact, the second SPAN input. I just don't recall how to set the first step of the whole process... Thanks!

OK, if I understand, what you are wanting is information on how to setup sidechains in CbB and Channel Routing in SPAN.

After adding SPAN to bus or aux track (or even a regular audio track), the sidechain inputs to the plug-in show up in track/bus sends and main outputs.

One track has a send to the bus or aux track hosting SPAN (if not on a regular track).

Send the other tracks to the 3 sidechain inputs to the SPAN.

Of course any number of tracks may be summed and sent to SPAN's main or sidechain inputs too.

Click the Routing button in the SPAN UI to display the Channel Routing dialog and assign In3 through In8  to the sidechain inputs

This will allow viewing two groups; one as the main display next to the Routing button and another as the Underlay

Is this what you are looking for?
