The following applications allow you to analyze a music file. Some of these tools will analyze the encoding data (bitrate, frequency, compression level, etc.) of those music files, while others will analyze their sound parameters (offering features such as oscilloscopes and FFT frequency analysis functions). They support a large variety of music file formats, including MP3, WAV and WMA.

These programs can help you with what you're intending to do:
Similarity can help you solve the problem of organizing your music and picture collection by finding and eliminating duplicated items. Unlike standard duplicate-search applications which base their results on such file characteristics as size, filename, format and tags, Similarity actually compares the files’ contents to find the coincidences.
As its name implies, it is a spectrum analyzer. Features: Basic Module - Wave recording for the line in and the mic input - Mp3 player to analyze Mp3 files (Mp2, atx) - Two Peak Level Labels that give you control of the highest amplitude - Peak hold option - Generator leveling calibrated to 1/100 of a dB. - Mp3/Wave Tools etc.
This program started as a simple FFT program running under DOS a long time ago, but it is now a specialized audio analyzer, filter, frequency converter, hum filter, data logger etc . Spectrum Lab runs under Windows 98, 2000, ME, XP (home and professional), Linux/WINE, but obviously not under Windows Vista.
Spectro Spectrum Analyzer consists of a Frequency Analyzer and Octave Analyzer with the ability to perform real-time acoustic analysis on your PC with a sound card. The Frequency Analyzer computes the averaged auto power spectrum using RMS or peak hold averaging with a linear or exponential weighting. The program is compatible with Windows 2000/Windows XP.
Overtone Analyzer is a software for anyone interested in sound or music. It can work with multiple files, tabbed file interface, has visual and auditory side-by-side comparison of audio files and recordings, best supported bit depth: 32 bit and it has studio audio quality.
RightMark Audio Analyzer (RMAA) suit, as its name reflects, is the idea of testing audio parameters objectively with frequency analysis algorithms. It is designed for testing the quality of analog and digital paths of any of the common audio devices.
This program is an audio analyzer with FFT and n-th octave frequency analyzers and oscilloscope. With the FFT frequency analyzer you can see the spectrum on a linear scale, which can be useful for harmonics and other analysis tasks. Also on board is a real time oscilloscope which is always useful when analyzing audio signals.
NCH Tone Generator comes with a very simple and easy-to-use interface. It makes choosing the different types of frequency and waveforms a very simple task. It can generate sine, square, triangle, saw tooth, impulse, noise waveforms, and so on. Different types of noises can also be produced.
