I always try to avoid using things like frequency spectrum analyzers because even random music listeners don't hear music with their eyes but with their ears.

Training your ears is definitely a beneficial thing in the long run but comes with putting in a lot of hours just listening to so much music.

Of course, frequency analyzers are useful although they can be a little distracting and make you make mixing decisions that are more pleasing to what you see instead of what may sound best when heard by an average music listener.

What's frequency analyzer would you use?

Voxengo Span or DMG Audio Dualism. Better yet Fab-Filter Pro-Q 2 comes with an excellent spectrum analyzer which allows you to even define the resolution up to 8192 sample points, i think.
