Something of a long shot, and more of a creative than a scientific purpose behind this question, but hopefully of interest to some out there and not inappropriate for the forum.
I was wondering whether any plugins exist to allow an audio file to be opened as an image, and then subsequently re-saved as an audio file. The purpose would be to allow visual editing of sound files.
I got the idea from the Audacity software, which which can display sound information as a ‘frequency map’. In this display, the x-axis is time, the y-axis is sound frequency, and amplitude (i assume) is represented by the pixel colour value. Picture below.
would be interested if anyone knows of any capacity to open sound files in a visual medium and re-save them?
