Abstract

Sonic Visualiser is the name for an implementation of a system to assist study and comprehension of the contents of audio data, particularly of musical recordings. It is a C++ application with a Qt4 GUI that runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux. It embodies a number of concepts which are intended to improve interaction with audio data and features, most notably with respect to the representation of time-synchronous information. The architecture of the application allows for easy integration of third party algorithms for the extraction of low and mid-level features from musical audio data. This paper describes some basic principles and functionalities of Sonic Visualiser.
