That's already possible, I've actually lately worked on a plugin to replace the item waveforms with a spectrogram... Note that implementing this is going to be somewhat involved...The way to do it is to implement your own PCM_source subclass where you implement the Extended() method to handle the item graphics drawing etc...To keep the item playing the original audio, you should have another PCM_source object inside your custom object which you use to implement most of the other stuff the PCM_source objects are supposed to do. (Such as playing the audio samples...)
