Feature request: Spectrum Frequency Analysis

Post by FBX » Fri Jul 12, 2019 10:23 pm

A friend of mind uses Audacity and it has a very useful feature for looking at a spectrum frequency plot of a music track (i.e. a line graph showing all frequencies used). Here's an example pic:

Would love to see this added to Goldwave!

Thanks for your time on this.

Also check out the Noise Reduction and Spectrum Filter effects. They display a frequency spectrum as well. You can adjust the time slider below the graph to view the spectrum at different times.

I knew about that method, but it only shows one time slice. I believe the Audacity one shows the entire track combined into one graph, and that was what I was after.

Edit: I see the "Spectrum" does in fact show peaks for the entire spectrum after playing the track, so I'm good. Thanks!

Related question --

Is there a way to export the time-averaged spectrum (frequency, magnitude, phase, or frequency Real/Imag) to a text file?

Similarly, is there any way to import a spectrum and use it in the Spectrum Filter?

I haven't found a way to do either, perhaps future features? :D

Unfortunately there is no way to import/export the spectrum data. May consider it in the future, but it would rarely be needed by most GoldWave users.
