It's a screen capturing program which should make things a whole lot less tedious. Capture -> "Grab windows object or scrolling window" seems to be the one we want to use. This software is Windows only, but there's probably similar programs for folks on Macs and Linux to use.
Ooh, nice program. Thanks.

I just downgraded from the Audacity beta to the last stable version to get rid of those neon green bars. Upon doing this, I noticed a pronounced change in the spectrograms. Here's how each versions analyzed the same song. The first graph is from the last stable version and the second graph is made with the beta.





Which one is "right"?

I think it may be an issue with the FFT, not the program. The top one is "right" per se.

we definately need some people to start adding articles on Dynamic Range Compression and Clipping, and waveform reading, etc.

I have recieved a few messages from people requesting that I compress and upload their images for them. I will gladly do this on a limited basis to help the wiki grow, but please don't expect me to compress ALL the images and upload all of them. This wiki relies on the community, not just me!

Well yes, it is harder to turn 400kb into <100kb images than it sounds from the instructions on the site

I understand completely, LFL_SL, but please understand that the wiki is young. If anyone has found a straightforward, general method of compressing their images, please post it on the "Image Tips" section of the wiki. Thanks.

I turned a 1280X1024 screenshot into a 78 kb 16-colour .gif with the instructions on the site. I used Photoshop. If you're having problems with other programs, GIMP will make quick and free work of it.

I would like to jump in on this project, however I can't get Audacity to display the same format as you have on the wiki. All I get is something like this...


Song is The Rhythm Of The Heat BTW.

How do I get audacity to display the second part of the waveform that you have under this one?

Edit: I figured it out.

I'll take back what I said about GIMP. As it turns out, for all the free and relative power it provides, it's not very good at making small, decent looking .gifs. Photoshop is still winning that race for now. I'll look for other options.

Irfanview seems to work pretty well for this project. Just have the .gifs decreased to 16 colors with Floyd-Steinberg dithering turned off.

Nice, thanks. I'll be sure to check it out.

EDIT: Just checked it out. Works really well with these instructions. I'll put them up.

Thats incognito for the excellent suggestions. We STILL need people to write articles on Dynamic Range Compression and Clipping, etc. SeagramSeven, we need your knowledge! Contribute! All others are welcome too!

Why not just borrow the articles from Wikipedia? All of the content is under the GNU free documentation license.
