I am looking for the best tool to visualize and analyze some nmr spectroscopy data. I have data registered on Siemens in .rda format.
I have found nmrglue and I am impressed with its capabilities. I want to use it for my data. 
How I can read .rda files in nmrglue?
My specters are a bit complicated and different so I have to make some shifts and line broadenings to make the look similary to visualize them on one, common axis.

I will be very grateful for your help :)

Unfortunately nmrglue does not have the ability to read data from Siemens .rda files.  As discusses in the GitHub issue [1] on this topic this ability could be added to nmrglue.  This is not something I will be working on but would be happy to review a pull request if anyone wanted to determine how to read these files. 

    From some brief searching I found the "suspect" Python library [2] which may be able to read in this type of data.  The library is open source [3] and so the code might be able to be adapted for use in nmrglue.
