Hi, Basically I want to do a project on 3d visualization of sound data and 3dprinting these 3d models as a small experiment.
Right now my problem is with extracting the sound data (amplitude , Frequency and time etc.) from a sound file and input these data into my parametric design software of choice (grasshopper)
I have found a freeware -SPEAR- which can analyze an audio file based on fast fourier transform and export the data as a [login to view URL] problem is I can't parse the text file and list the parameters like time , frequency etc. logically to then use them as 3d model parameters.
I have the ability to parse the file by grasshopper if I could recognize the pattern and order of the parameters but I can't seem to find out. So does anyone have a solution with these text files or overal another way to extract the parameters from a sound file ?
p.s: I have basic knowledge about characteristics of sound waves so I might have some blank spots in describing the problem
I have attached two types of text file which i have exported from the spear software:
