Unusual recording requirement?

I’m wondering whether someone could give me some advice or ideas on what I want to use Audacity for.

Basically, I want to analyze the spectrum of an incoming signal continuously, and save the results at intervals of say, one minute. But I want this to happen automatically. In other words, it must run unattended.

Wishful thinking?

Audacity is not an appropriate tool for that job. Audacity does not do anything in “real time” as you record or play back.

There is one. Audacity has a timer tool, but it’s only good (last I checked) for one event.
