Audio Brush: What You See is What You Hear

Hearing, analyzing and evaluating sounds is possible for everyone. The reference-sensor for audio, the human ear, is of amazing capabilities and high quality. In contrast editing and synthesizing audio is an indirect and non-intuitive task needing great expertise.

To overcome these limitations we are creating Audio Brush, a smart visual audio editing tool. Audio Brush allows to edit the spectrogram of a sound in the visual domain similar to editing bitmaps. At the core is a very flexible audio spectrogram based on the Gabor analysis and synthesis. It gives maximum accuracy of the representation, is fully invertible, and enables manipulating the signal at any chosen time-frequency resolution.
