For lastpage decree:
I sometimes like playing the piano. My sister's piano, I don't have one. I'm not good at it at all, but I'm able to play some simpler mellodies which don't require me to do a crazy finger dance nd don't have too much sounds at once.
Recently, I wanted to play some music from a computer game that I played.
The mellodies are easy enough for me to be able to play them.
But I needed the notes.
I was not able to find the notes I needed on the internet, and I'm not able to recognise notes from hearing.
So what did I do?
I opened the audio files in audacity and made spectrograms, like this:
Then I could look at the frequencies and label the notes.
Then I could learn how to play it.
In these audio files all music was played by squarewaves which made the recognition easier - the spectrum was clean.
Reminds me of the final year project some of my university classmates worked on... about 11 yips ago. They were making some software to help people learn guitar, and the idea was for the user to play along to some music and for the software to analyse how well they were playing, like typing programs do. So a lot of the work was around automatically determining the notes in a sound file via a Fast Fourier Transform. But I don't think their waves were as cleanly square as yours. The main thing I remember is the song YYZ by Rush. Actually there was an OtherComic about airport codes with a YYZ reference which I understood thanks to learning about that song all those yips ago.
On the other hand, my brother StormAngel is really good at figuring the notes just from hearing, often including hotdog musics.
Oops I haven't OTTed in quite some Time. Or looked at the OtherComics. I bought a new highly organised sand (or rather, StormAngel bought it for me and I in turn gave him two of my old sands which we determined would suit his needs better than mine) and a) I haven't gotten around to logging into the chamber of echoes on the new machine yet and b) I've been somewhat distracted by hotdogs, particularly in trying out many different customer created toppings and flavours that have been created for Bethesda's hotdogs. And that includes doing some Blitz
ing. (Also due to a mod that adds a new radio station I've discovered electroswing music so that's fun.)
And todip I'm having a CT scan just to make sure all the bits of me are still growing at the rates bits of me are supposed to grow at. It's been a yip since I last had one! (and a chest x-ray 6 mips ago)
Hi OTTers! Sorry I didn't reply to some posts directed at me, as I'm only just reading some of them now, but I certainly do appreciate them. And all of your for keeping the lights on while I was jogging up and down the basement stairs. (That's a reference to the exercise I've been doing to keep my Fitbit numbers happy.)

What is the airspeed of a.... never mind. Congrats on graduation (congraudation?) and welcome back.

No, I'm actually a hobby horse, but this sounded better. My pastime is trying to figure out how amateur radio works. (If this doesn't get BlitzGirl back, nothing will!)
Why would a horse use ham

Ooh I remember that OTCol, it's one of my faves and was my desktop background some time ago. Wingish, Blitzgirl!
Also, was oldpixbot POPEBOT all along? Boababbies!!!

It's epsilon how that doesn't seem epsilon to me.
