How to view Audacity time domain screen in your document and Frequency Analysis (frequency domain) screen? Trying to analyze a voice sample recording and view time domain and frequency domain using Audacity?
Drag-select the portion of the show you want to analyze. Analyze > Plot Spectrum. That’s frequency versus amplitude. Somewhere in the show there is a medium size 430Hz tone.
Drop-down menu to the left of the track > Spectrogram. That one is frequency versus time.
Koz do you mean Algorithm when you say “Drop-down menu to the left of the track > Spectrogram. That one is frequency versus time”
There’s a little black arrow to the left of the audio track. That’s the touch point for a menu system. One of the menu items is change the timeline from amplitude up and down over a time reference, to frequency up and down over a time reference.
Koz I’ve found what I think is the black arrow that you preferring to but which is the actual selection I should use to change setting?
See here in the manual: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/audio_track_dropdown_menu.html
I’m totally new to audacity, and I am given particular instructions on an assignment and I’m trying to distingush between time domain and frequency domain to no avail. Is the default time domain and if so I need help going to frequency domain. Please Help
Analyzing your Signal Copy and its Spectrum
Use your mouse to select an area of the recording such as shown below.
Next, click on Analyze on the menu bar and select Plot Spectrum
Without closing Audacity, open Word (or your normal word processor)
Set up for a New document
Click on Audacity to put its window on top of others
Press your Print Scr key (on some computers, you may need to hold the Alt key) Click on Word and click on Edit, then Paste
You should now have a copy the Audacity time domain screen in your document Repeat the process for the Frequency Analysis (frequency domain) screen
You should now have both screens in your document.
Who set the assignment for you? Have you asked them for help?
A “spectrogram view” shows frequency levels and how they change over time. See: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/audio_track_dropdown_menu.html#spgram
A “waveform view” shows amplitude and how amplitude changes over time. See: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/audio_track_dropdown_menu.html#wave
