Hi, I'm Back again. This time I have a different problem.... I tried to record a sinusoidal tone using a pair of microphones by plugging the microphones into the line-in port of my sound card. I used Sony Sound Forge to record the signal.But what i saw was that both the channels were identical.It seemed like the recorded file was a sum of the individual mic ouputs. I connected the mics ...

Hi, Hope I'm posting to the right group here. I have recorded a sound file on my mp3 player but when I play it back there's quite a lot of interference. It's basically a taped conversation (personal). I'm looking for someone who could give me a quote to repair it for me as I don't know the first thing about sound editing. If interested please email me at vervoom@hotmail.com and I'll forw...

Hello everybody! Here is a kind of silly question, you know. I write a radio station program that reacts on some sound events detected within a continious audio stream received through a sound card input channel or whatever. A program runs and at the specified moment starts to listen to the input audio stream and tries to detect a sound pattern that it's been trained before (a PCM file or so...

Hello, My name is maz and I am working on simple sound source localization. I have to find the location of a sound source on a 2d plane. (I am not considering z axis). I have 4 mics placed on a wooden platform, the co-ordinates of which are m1(0,0), m2(0,6), m3(4,6), m4(4,0). del12 is the difference between the distance from mic 1 to the source and from mic 2 to the source. del12=(delay betw...

Hi all. I have used MPGWRITE with some success to make small MPEG movies from data I manipulate and plot with matlab. Now I want to put a sound track with the movie, but have a very vague recollection of having seen somewhere (I can't find any mention of it now) that MPGWRITE does not handle sound tracks at all. So my question is if there is any code available anywhere to generat...

http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/Hbase/Sound/refrac.html When sound refracts should we not be able to detect a change in pitch like the doppler effect? (because the wavelength must shorten - hence pitch increase). How do we model refraction - is this a non-linear effect ie it cannot be modeled with a LTI transfer function. Hardy

I made a program that makes a spectrogram out of a sound (with log base 2 frequency) output it as an image file and then is able to input it again to turn it back into a sound. However, I'm meeting a problem. In order to make the spectrogram, I bandpass the original sound many times with an array of filters which frequency and width vary logarithmically and get the enveloppe out of each ban...

Hi all, I have implemented FM demodulation(including Mono and Stereo) on FPGA. When it work on Mono mode, the audio quality sounds good. But if I changed the mode to the stereo, the audio quality sounds not very well. I have checked the spectrum of m(t), and there are high noise floor over high frequencies(looks like the response of a high pass filter). Even I changed the differentiator from ...

Can I simply connect a Y-cable to combine the two amp outputs into a single, stereo i...

Hello, I was wondering if any of you knew anything about this, or could point me to some resources. So I have spectral data at about 100 time points which was taken over a one second time period.
