Wiki:Aldous Leonard Huxley (26 July 1894 – 22 November 1963) was an English writer and one of the most prominent members of the famousHuxley family. He spent the later part of his life in the United States, living in Los Angeles from 1937 until his death in 1963. Best known for his novels including Brave New World and a wide-ranging output of essays, Huxley also edited the magazine Oxford Poetry, and published short stories, poetry, travel writing, and film stories and scripts. 

Aldous Huxley was a humanist and pacifist, and he was latterly interested in spiritual subjects such as parapsychology and philosophicalmysticism.[1] He is also well known for advocating and taking psychedelics.

By the end of his life Huxley was considered, in some academic circles, a leader of modern thought and an intellectual of the highest rank, and highly regarded as one of the most prominent explorers of visual communication and sight-related theories as well.[

AudioAnalysis: Displaying the Spectrum and Spectrogram of Incoming Audio in Realtime

Software Is Found Here: AudioAnalysis

Features

It is possible to control the following features:
colour or greyscale plotting of spectrogram
amplitude or phase (amplitude is probably most interesting)
linear and logarithmic frequency distribution
amplitude range (= “filtering”)
low and high frequency values

The program also have the optional feature of displaying the following perceptually relevant features:
Pitch is measured with an adapted version of fiddle~ from Miller Puckette
Brightness is measured with the spectral centroid
Loudness is measured with the spectral energy
Noisiness is measured with the Bark-based spectral flatness measure (SFM)
The bark spectrum is an auditory model spectrum decomposition
