EAnalysis: new features

EAnalysis is a sound based analysis software developed for MTI Research Centre (De Montfort University, Leicester). Since last updates, EAnalysis contains some new important features. Download EAnalysis – Free for Macintosh OS10.6 or later

Differential sonogram

The differential sonogram shows only spectral differences, you can analyze morphologies, onsets, spectral motions, etc. diffSona2

Representation of structure

This view draws simple segmentation in several layers with various designs: linear segmentation, formal diagram, similarity matrix from segmentation, or arc diagram from pattern recognition. Here is an example with the fourth designs (from bottom to top: linear, formal diagram, arc diagram, similarity matrix): EAnalysis-structure-02

Data visualization: cloud of points

When you import data from an other piece of software (like audio descriptors from Sonic Visualiser), you can draw diagram in two axis and explore it by selecting an area: EAnalysis-data-01

Use CTRL+click to play extracts linked to each point. You can also draw more than one diagram:

points

An other example:

EAnalysis-data-02

I imagined these representations from the amazing CataRT application developed by Diemo Schwarz for musical creation.

Data visualization: complex line

This second type of view draws three datas in two curves (value, size, and color):

EAnalysis-data-03

Data visualization: shaded colors

There is also two new types of data visualization: horizontal graph (like a waveform) or gradient like in this example (top): gradient

Data hierarchical correlation

I added an other type of view to visualize hierarchical correlation between two set of data:

corr

Analytical events

Lasse Thoresen system of representation is under implementation. The first step is realized: form-building and time-field. Typomorphology will be available for the fall. EAnalysis-thoresen-01
