All available audio/file descriptors
A string describing the relative path to the selected folder.
Contains both path and filename.
See also Classes for more information.
One or more matching categories for the sound.
Note that if more than one category is present, secondary categories will appear slightly dimmed.
|Length||The total duration (playing time) of the sound.
The value is expressed as minutes:seconds:milliseconds
|Samplerate||The samplerate of the sound, e.g. 44100 for CD-quality audio.||File Info|
|Channels||Number of audio channels in the source file.||File Info|
|Bits||The bit-depth of the source file, e.g. 16 or 8-bit .||File Info|
|Peak||The peak amplitude in the sound, expressed as decibel (dB).||-|
|RMS||The average amplitude (RMS) expressed in decibel (dB).||RMS/Loudness|
|Pitch||The percieved pitch expressed as a note value.
Base frequency is 440 Hz, with +/- denoting detuning.
|Pitch-conf.||The 'pitch confidence'
A low value indicates that precise pitch measurement was not possible.
|BPM||The detected BPM (beats-per-minute) of the sound.
The tempo is not necessarily available for all sounds.
|BPM-conf.||The 'tempo confidence'
a low value indicates that the tempo was found to be unstable.
|Brightness||The perceived 'brightness' of the sound
A value of 100 is very bright, while 0 is the opposite - a 'dark' or 'dull' sound.
|Harmonicity||The perceived 'harmonicity' of the sound
This is a measurement of the distribution of harmonic partials, with 100 being a perfect distribution and 0 considered a very dissonant sound. Note that this is not an indication of whether a sound should be considered 'tonal' or not - aiming for a low 'noisiness' is often a better approach here.
|Noisiness||The perceived 'noisiness' of the sound
This value indicates how 'noisy' the sound appears to be, with 100 being very noisy, and a value of 0 being the opposite. Or in other words, if your sound has a low noisiness, it's probably closer to a sine wave than white-noise.
- Can I manually change/override the category of a sample?
- Does Sononym support metadata (e.g. BWAV, iXML or ID3 tags)?
- Can Sononym show audio properties such as number of channels and bit-rate?
