Basic Questions

Hello, I came here because I would like to find out more about audio recording and came here for assistance. I admit I don’t know anything really, and hope
to be steered in the right direction. I am interested in finding some kind of software that compares sound and voice, I was having a debate with someone
regarding an actor’s performance, I said this actor is currently using a completely different voice (a higher pitched voice) for this character than used previously.
The other person couldn’t hear it. I don’t know what it would be called, but I’m interested in finding something that shows the sound waves, with the pitch differences and such. I don’t know what I’m looking for would be called. I’m interested for personal reasons as well, I’ve never liked my voice, I’ve always been shy and softspoken, and I would like to find something that shows a picture of my voice.

I’m grateful for your assistance,

You might be able to use The analyze tools.

Select the sound to be analyzed.

Analyze > Plot Spectrum > Algorithm > Cepstrum.

Cepstrum: The cepstrum of an audio signal is related to the spectrum, but presents the rate of change in the different spectrum bands. It’s particularly useful for properties of vocal tracks and is used, for example, in software to identify speakers by their voice characteristics.


Few Audacity tools work in real time. You record the voices and analyze them later.
You still have to know how to record the voice. Koz
