I am using Audacity to look at Bat data. So very short HF files usually a couple of MB, lasting a couple of seconds. I have thousands of files to look through to determine if there are bat calls in each file. Each time I open up a WAV file in Audacity I have to change the preferences to be able to view the spectrogram in the right way to determine if there is any bat data.
I seem to be unable to save my preferences. I want to be able to open a sound file on spectrogram default rather than wavefile. I have changed this in Edit>Preferences>Spectrogram. Then set the Scale, colours and Algorithm to what I want to be able to look at the files. Then Apply and Ok.
In a previous post I put about this (now closed) it mentions to set the “default view mode”, but I cannot see where to do this exactly.
I have looked in the help files and it suggests to Reset the preferences, but I cannot find them. I am working on Windows 10 now. I have looked in the Program Files Audacity folder but there is no audacity. =cfg file that you mention.
I look forward to your response. Many thanks. Sarah Barry.
