One of my interests involves creating software algorithms that manipulate audio in various ways. This frequently involves analyzing various numerical data.
Tired with writing specialized scripts corralling specific data and/or wrestling with Excel, I set out to make my own tool to aid in development and analysis of my various audio processing algorithms.
I've used Qt to help with this and, so far, I'm fairly happy with the results. I've built and used this software on Windows, Ubuntu and MacOS. Here's a screenshot of it running on MacOS:
Currently the Audio Analysis Tool's only feature is analyzing audio transients. A detailed description of my transient detection algorithm can be found here. The Audio Analysis Tool allows key transient detection settings to be tweaked in attempt to improve the transient detection results under various conditions. I plan on adding additional audio analysis features in the near future.
Building this project requires CMake version 3.0 or later.
Building this project requires a C++14 compliant compiler. This project is routinely built in my continous integration system which currently uses MS Visual Studio 2017, GCC 5.3.1 and Apple LLVM version 7.3.0 (clang 703.0.31).
Qt binaries, including QtCharts, must be installed. I've been using Qt v5.9.2 but I imagine this project should build with earlier versions of Qt (possibly even back to Qt 4) and I would be surprised if it didn't build with later versions of Qt.
Steps for Building
Clone this repo.
Create a new directory at the parallel level as the cloned repo. This directory will hold the project files CMake creates.
cd into this new directory.
From the command line, run cmake -G YourDesiredGeneratorType -D CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=QtPath ../AudioAnalysisTool/Source
Run make or open the project file in an IDE and build.
Continuous Integration and Automated Release
The Automation directory contains scripts that can be used with Jenkins to setup continuous integration and automated release building of the AudioAnalysisTool project. These scripts work on Windows, OS X and Linux. For more information on how to setup Jenkins to use these scripts please see this document.
