A spectrogram is a visual representation of audio waves. It displays time on the x-axis and frequency on the y-axis.
Utilizing a spectrogram is an invaluable way to locate intermittent sounds known as dropouts in recordings and to repair and restore them. Furthermore, its use can identify formants like F1 and F2, helping identify vowels more precisely.
1. Spectrogram Pro
No matter if it is a bird’s call or electronic whistling in your headphones, this app can analyze the frequencies within each sound to reveal hidden images in music composer’s compositions, giving insight into what he/she intended with their musical creations.
Spectrogram Pro features four FFT resolutions, logarithmic and linear frequency scales, colour schemes, adjustable sensitivity controls, peak hold capabilities and gain adjustments of up to 24dB in analysis audio mode – making details much simpler to visualize!
Highlight certain parts of audio with a bar graph that you can set to zoom in or out as needed, plus build rule sets for the highlights, which can serve either an absolute or relative value, and have different color scales applied accordingly.
Free versions of this software offer limited functionality, while its full version comes with a lifetime license granting access on multiple computers and more powerful integration into third-party audio and MIDI programs than its competitors.
As an added feature, this software can detect short sections of missing or corrupted audio – appearing as gaps on a spectrogram – which then analyze the surrounding audio to attenuate or replace intermittent sounds for consistency in an audio track.
2. Spectro Real
With Spectro Real, you gain a powerful three-dimensional representation of audio that displays time, frequency, and amplitude – enabling you to visually identify broadband or electrical noise, other problems, or anything that disrupts its signals, then isolate them quickly. Furthermore, the app includes features for audio analysis like harmonics/formats/voice signal analysis/articulation as well.
This Windows spectrogram tool reads important metadata from compressed files, which helps identify transcode issues and analyze music quality data. Furthermore, this visual waveform tool supports most major audio editing software solutions.
Hubble is famous for taking breathtaking images of our universe, but scientists relying on its spectrographs rely on these devices to gather crucial scientific information such as atmosphere composition on exoplanets, stars and nebulae. Matthew Sheridan’s team of color experts has designed innovative handheld spectrographs that tether to smartphones – these handhelds are useful for brand owners, designers, paper manufacturers and printers who use benchtop spectrophotometers but require expensive calibration processes whereas portable colorimeters offer simplicity without complex calibration processes or calibration processes; portable colorimeters don’t tether to a mobile device either!
Audiotool has outlived its initial host site Hobnox to become an established music creation platform. This free and non-commercial program continues its active development to this day, offering users from around the globe to collaborate and share their work. Audiotool provides everything needed by professionals for making, editing and mixing music easily; its features and tools include spectrogram, looping drum machines effects MIDI keyboard support etc.
The user interface of Ableton Live is modern and sleek, providing musicians with full control over the production process via a visual pipeline. On the left side of the dashboard are modules and samples which can be dragged and dropped onto the main work area at the center of the screen; then played and edited using controls at the bottom of dashboard.
The Spectrogram is an invaluable tool for monitoring and editing audio files. It displays audio data as boxes on a graph representing sound/silence ratio. By clicking any box, a section of the file can be played back by selecting that box – along with options such as frequency range selection as well as audio filter options like equalization/amplitude compression/echo effect for filtering purposes.
4. Voice Spectrogram
A spectrogram represents how energy in different frequencies in sound is distributed over time, giving insight into pitch, breathiness, larynx height and other subtle aspects of voice production. Furthermore, it can show harmonics as well as other acoustic phenomena like vocal fold vibrations. Furthermore, it can be interpreted as either a 3D surface plot of frequency and amplitude or waterfall graph; with time being displayed along a vertical or horizontal axis and either linear or logarithmic frequency axes.
An oscillogram displays a waveform with its own individual properties; in contrast, spectrograms provide a graphic representation of acoustic signals which can be analysed for signs or absence of certain phenomena – especially helpful when these phenomena can be difficult to recognize from recordings alone.
Example: Someone speaking while excited and agitated can produce sounds with rapidly shifting intonation patterns and darkened harmonics on the spectrogram, which could be taken as signs of frustration or anger.
A spectrogram can be used as the input source for a neural network to train a model of speech style or emotional characteristics. First transformed into feature maps and then fed into the training set of a 5-layer fully connected neural network which judges similarity between two input spectrograms, this process leads to improved speech style modeling capabilities.
