tone x hertz x

Hi everyone,

I recorded my voice on a track in audacity, how do I know which tone? What is the frequency in Hertz?

thank you

You can switch the timeline to Spectogram View with the pull-down menu on the left. That will give you time from left to right and frequency (pitch) up the left. Pull the track taller to get better accuracy.

But I don’t think that’s going to give you what you want. Voices do not perform in one pitch. Each voice has many different pitches at the same time which is why we all sound different, even when singing the exact same note.

If you whistle, that will give you more of a single note performance.

Real world sounds are not a single frequency. Analyze → Plot Spectrum will show you the frequency spectrum (frequency components).

The “pitch” or “note(s)” you hear are usually the lowest & strongest frequency.

Thank you so much, you helped me a lot.

Good day. My matter is this. Please tell me, how can I find in Audacity the tone of any song? When I usually try to change the tone of a song, it appears the same tone for differents songs.Dont change from a song to another. It means that it´s impossible to know the apropiate tone. My situation is that I need to introduce to the band the tone of a sogn for sing it in live. Sorry for my English. Thanks a lot for your help.
