Subject: Sum: Spectrogram Software for PC/Windows95


A few months back (12/97) I inquired about PC/Windows95 software for
producing spectrograms. I am enclosing the responses, edited for brevity.
Thank you to all who replied.

Try CoolEdit. You can get it at http://www.syntrillium.com
Another excellent software is Hypersignal.	
- -------------------------------------------
All us win95 users use Cool96 from Syntrillium.

It is shareware, and I have used it thru the last three 
versions, and paid for it. Really outstanding. DL It from

www.Syntrillium.com, try it, if you like it, buy it and get
full functionality by email password. 
- -------------------------------------------
What about Sound Forge 4.0 and its plugins ?
See http://www.sfoundry.com . It does the job quite well.

Another modest sugestion, much less expensive, could be the COOL EDIT.
See http://www.syntrillium.com 
- -------------------------------------------
My favorite is GRAM23 available at:

- ------------------------------------------
- You might want to check our database on sound analysis software at:

http://dsg.sbs.nus.edu.sg/datasoft.html

It describes 20+ software packages and has links to the products' web pages.

Try Spectrogram v. 4.1. by R. Horne. The program is available as freeware
at www.winsite.com and probably at other download servers.
- -------------------------------------------
Yes, try Spectra Plus, by Pioneer Hill Software, (360) 697-3472. 


www.telebyte.com/pioneer 


It offers good control over frequency range, duration, number of points,
etc. If you can live with its copy protection, I use it and I recommend it.
- -------------------------------------------
I've used spectra plus for some time, (mainly to analyse the acoustic
structure of consonant-vowel syllables) and I think it's an excellent product.

For more information see:

http://www.telebyte.com/pioneer/index.html
- -------------------------------------------
We are using "Goldwaves" on the PC with Windows95 to edit .wav files, but
we are unaware of a spectrograph in that free internet program.
- -------------------------------------------
"Spectra Pro" from Sound Technology is a very good signal analysis package
that operate in Windows95. You can download a fully functioning version
from their web site. It will operate for 30 days. After that time you'll
need to contact Sound Technology for a key. Go to my web site at
www.eskimo.com/~cetacean and click on the SOFTWARE link to get to a page
with a link to Sound Technology. Please mention my name if you decide to
purchase the software.

Good luck,

You should check out the following site and the following product:

"Winpitch" by Philippe Martin


www.winpitch.com 

I have worked with this product at length and find it to be truly
excellent.
- -------------------------------------------
I know of such a program working under Windows 97 and quite inexpensive. It
does real-time spectrograms, Fo analysis and synthesis. You can get a
detailed description and a demo from the web site "www.winpitch.com".
- ------------------------------------------
I'd suggest MultiSpeech by Kay, it is the software version of CSL.
- -------------------------------------------
the Praat program ( http://fonsg3.let.uva.nl/praat )
is a comprehensive system for doing phonetic by computer.

Though only the Macintosh, SGI, Solaris, and HPUX versions
are available now, a Windows95 version is under development
and will appear in March 1998.
- -------------------------------------------
I've been using WinSal speech analysis running on Windows 95 with
reasonable success at a reasonable cost. There is a website for further
information: http://www.media-enterprise.de 

My only real negative comment is that the quality of printouts on a laser
printer is not very high. I've had better results, though, on a BubbleJet
or ColorJet printer. 
- -------------------------------------------
I have been using WINCECIL from SIL (www.sil.org). The organization allows
free academic use. It has undergone periodic upgrades.

What I would like to use is the Multi-Speech program from Kay, but I 
dont have departmental approval yet.

Both of these options can be investigated on the web, I'm sure.
- -------------------------------------------
Matlab is great for all data analysis jobs, including spectral analysis.

Look at http://www.mathworks.com
