To my knowledge, Audacity can be used to create glitch art, the workflow will look something like the following:
Convert your image to TIFF
Import into Audacity as raw data (using A-Law)
Apply sound effects, such as reverb
Export as raw data (using A-Law)
Open the exported image as TIFF
Is it possible to create a plugin for Audacity to do the non-fun part of this?
The plugin would have to have access to the filesystem and be able to interface with Audacity to import and export the data.
To make things much easier, maybe the plugin would open a window and display the glitched image in real-time, as it is being modified.
I have absolutely no experience with developing for Audacity and I understand several ways are possible. What do I need to know in regards to this (e.g. Nyquist scripting cannot do this)?
I am a decent programmer, but I’ve never touched this domain.
You’re probably right that developing a plugin isn’t the most practical approach, as it probably requires a lot of work.
However I am still interested in whether it is possible or not to extend Audacity for something like this.
The project would be for fun.
