The improved transient detection algorithm can now be adjusted in the following ways...
The spectrum matching algorithm has been re-written to provide more reliable matching of spectral content. In addition, spectral filters can now be created from a single signature and no longer require two or more spectral signatures as did previous versions of Drum Gator. When matching to a single signature, a “similarity” threshold is used to control the rejection of unwanted signals.
