This forum board is a place where people may offer feedback on feature suggestions. If a suggestion garners support, then we can log the feature request with a note of the number of “votes” from people that support the feature request.
Personally, I find those “stereo-colorised spectrogram” much less clear than Audacity’s current displays. Speaking for myself, I would have no interest in developing a feature like that, and do not personally support this proposal, but thank you for proposing it. If others support the idea, it could still be implemented, but even if not, it is always useful to consider new ideas, even if they are not ultimately implemented.
Your example looks fuzzy but a true stereo file in 1 wave i think would look sharper. I think your idea is useful to see at once the different db differences betweeen left and right channels [not sure of colors, idealy the user would choose them]:
and can’t align with precision, if someone does it with i think eg Gimp, the resulting stereo song in 1 wave will be fully sharp, with the parts that don’t overlap keeping more red or more yellow, overlaping parts would be orange tones.
Sort of, but way sharper than this low res:
redo of earlier stereo-spectrogram sample,
using audacity’s reassigned (might need oversampling to look less grainy)
(2048, reassignment, blackman-harris, zero-pad16, gain0db, range80db, grayscale, bark)
Actually, your Waveform doesn’t look so fuzzy if more zommed in, [if one sees it in the post it’s too small vs seeing the Waveform in Audacity], and if the peaks were lighter it would look even clearer.
Also with this idea the Waveform would look more than double vertically vs the usual, ± this size [here]
