Sonic Visualiser

Sonic Visualiser is an open source application for analyzing and viewing audio files. It may look complicated, but you will pick up the basics pretty fast.

Some features:

  • 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 labeled 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 plug-ins to calculate annotations automatically, using algorithms such as beat trackers, pitch detectors and so on.

Operating Systems:
Linux, Mac OS X, Windows 10, Windows 7 (32 bit), Windows 7 (64 bit), Windows 8, Windows Server, Windows Vista (32 bit), Windows Vista (64 bit), Windows XP

My Name Biz Renol a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-native. I've been in the music scene for over 20+ years, everything from being a Audio Technician, Music Artist, DJ, Independent Music Producer to now owning my own Independent Music Production Company, itzbizness productions™. My ultimate goal is to enable the youth of today to invest in their communities and lead productive lives through music. I have a insatiable thirst for all knowledge especially musically, I hate to be stereotyped and work very hard to remain and maintain my eclectic style. I like to think outside the box, I strive to find inspiration from everyday sounds, I listen to all kinds of music in search of the right sounds that will help me make the perfect masterpiece. Many years of listening to the greatest producers and composers have resulted in the creation of my own original style. I love music and being an entrepreneur, because I love my job, my freedom and no one will ever pay you what your worth which is insurmountable.
