Visual Sound Analysis
The “sensAI SINGING VAD” from audEERING is a modern tool which uses artificial intelligence technology to detect lead vocals and choruses in music pieces, marking the passages containing vocal lines. This provides you with a quick overview of complex mixing projects. SOUND FORGE Pro 12 has Phase Scope and mono compatibility meters added to the main meters window. The Phase Scope helps you to find phase cancellation among the channels in an audio file. The mono compatibility meter helps detect correlations or differences between the channels that can cause phase cancellation when downmixing to mono. CALM-targeted metering provides super-accurate loudness metering. It allows you to get a good clear visual indication of the dynamic range of your audio. The Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation Act (CALM) regulates the overall volume during commercial breaks. It is comparable to EBU loudness recommendation R128. This is great when you get to the mastering stage and want to have accurate meters on your audio’s perceived levels. Multichannel-capable spectrum analysis shows multiple graphs depicting fundamental frequencies and overtones in your recordings depending on how many channels are selected. Monitor audio and effects changes, take multiple snapshots, and overlay views to compare and match frequencies.
