I'm trying to capture sound wave patterns from mp3s. At the moment I'm doing screen grabs from audacity, then fixing them up in photoshop. Does anyone know any other software I could use for this?

Many thanks in advance.

  • This question doesn't seem to be very much about design. – Ryan Dec 10 '14 at 17:28
  • Cheers Ryan. I want to manipulate the waves when captured, I guess that could be classed as design. – Rico Shaft Dec 10 '14 at 17:31

    When you have a question about that you know where to ask :) Just might be more on topic right now in either the sound exchange or superuser since its more about capturing the sound waves at this point then anything design related. – Ryan Dec 10 '14 at 17:32
  • I think image capture questions are on topic. – Scott Dec 10 '14 at 17:41

You should check out Sonic Visualiser. It's free, has image export built in and is generally designed for this sort of thing.

  • Alternatively, you could download a demo of iZotope RX4 - should provide you with both waveform and spectrum images. – christiancoriolis Dec 10 '14 at 18:24
  • Cheers guys thats what I was after. – Rico Shaft Dec 10 '14 at 19:45
  • @christiancoriolis: Nope - Sonic is the best! ;) – jojek Dec 11 '14 at 9:35
  • Certainly for the price it is :-) – christiancoriolis Dec 14 '14 at 11:23
