Publisher's Description

View waveforms of audio recordings in many formats like MP3, OGG:

The aim of Sonic Visualiser is to be the first program you reach for when want to study a musical recording rather than simply listen to it.

We hope Sonic Visualiser will be of particular interest to musicologists, archivists, signal-processing researchers and anyone else looking for a friendly way to take a look at what lies inside the audio file.

Sonic Visualiser is Free Software.

Sonic Visualiser features and highlights:
  • Load audio files in WAV, Ogg and MP3 formats, and view their waveforms
  • Look at audio visualizations such as spectrogram views, with interactive adjustment of display parameters
  • Annotate audio data by adding labelled time points and defining segments, point values and curves
  • Overlay annotations on top of one another with aligned scales, and overlay annotations on top of waveform or spectrogram views
  • View the same data at multiple time resolutions simultaneously (for close-up and overview)
  • Run feature-extraction plugins to calculate annotations automatically, using algorithms such as beat trackers, pitch detectors and so on
  • Import annotation layers from various text file formats
  • Import note data from MIDI files, view it alongside other frequency scales, and play it with the original audio
  • Play back the audio plus synthesized annotations, taking care to synchronize playback with display
  • Select areas of interest, optionally snapping to nearby feature locations, and audition individual and comparative selections in seamless loops
  • Time-stretch playback, slowing right down or speeding up to a tiny fraction or huge multiple of the original speed while retaining a synchronized display
  • Export audio regions and annotation layers to external files
