My work involves seeing sound as well as hearing sound: spectrum analyzers allow me to work with utter confidence. Being able to tune the parameters of visual, real-time display along the various frequency areas is key to my mixing and mastering work. Voxengo SPAN Plus has the greatest FFT control of any analyzer in my kit - enormously helpful. For spline work, CurveEQ is a constant fascination while being the key ingredient in many situations.Professionally-speaking, Karl Mohr is a top-class sound designer for film, primarily designing special sound effects creations for the giant IMAX screen.
