Announcing the release of Sonic Visualiser 1.0pre3, a pre-release for
the soon forthcoming Sonic Visualiser 1.0.
Sonic Visualiser is an application for viewing and analysing the
contents of music audio files. It contains advanced waveform and
spectrogram viewers, as well as editors for many sorts of audio
annotations. Besides visualisation, it can make and play selections
based on the locations of automatically detected features, seamlessly
loop playback of single or multiple noncontiguous regions, synthesise
annotations for playback, and time-stretch playback while retaining
Sonic Visualiser also makes use of the Vamp plugin API, for plugins that
extract descriptive or analytical data from audio. Vamp is an easy to
use plugin API with a comprehensive and well-commented SDK, and is now
frozen for the Vamp 1.0 release.
