Plot spectrogram

Description

Internal soundgen function

Usage

plotSpec(
  X,
  Y,
  Z,
  audio = NULL,
  internal = NULL,
  dynamicRange = 80,
  osc = c("none", "linear", "dB")[2],
  heights = c(3, 1),
  ylim = NULL,
  yScale = "linear",
  contrast = 0.2,
  brightness = 0,
  maxPoints = c(1e+05, 5e+05),
  padWithSilence = TRUE,
  colorTheme = c("bw", "seewave", "heat.colors", "...")[1],
  extraContour = NULL,
  xlab = NULL,
  ylab = NULL,
  xaxp = NULL,
  mar = c(5.1, 4.1, 4.1, 2),
  main = NULL,
  grid = NULL,
  width = 900,
  height = 500,
  units = "px",
  res = NA,
  ...
)

Arguments

X

time stamps, ms

Y

frequency stamps, kHz / mel / bark

Z

time in rows, frequency in columns (NB: this is the transpose of the exported spectrogram!)

audio

a list returned by readAudio

dynamicRange

dynamic range, dB. All values more than one dynamicRange under maximum are treated as zero

osc

"none" = no oscillogram; "linear" = on the original scale; "dB" = in decibels

heights

a vector of length two specifying the relative height of the spectrogram and the oscillogram (including time axes labels)

ylim

frequency range to plot, kHz (defaults to 0 to Nyquist frequency). NB: still in kHz, even if yScale = bark, mel, or ERB

yScale

scale of the frequency axis: 'linear' = linear, 'log' = logarithmic (musical), 'bark' = bark with hz2bark, 'mel' = mel with hz2mel, 'ERB' = Equivalent Rectangular Bandwidths with HzToERB

contrast

spectrum is exponentiated by contrast (any real number, recommended -1 to +1). Contrast >0 increases sharpness, <0 decreases sharpness

brightness

how much to "lighten" the image (>0 = lighter, <0 = darker)

maxPoints

the maximum number of "pixels" in the oscillogram (if any) and spectrogram; good for quickly plotting long audio files; defaults to c(1e5, 5e5)

padWithSilence

if TRUE, pads the sound with just enough silence to resolve the edges properly (only the original region is plotted, so the apparent duration doesn't change)

colorTheme

black and white ('bw'), as in seewave package ('seewave'), or any palette from palette such as 'heat.colors', 'cm.colors', etc

extraContour

a vector of arbitrary length scaled in Hz (regardless of yScale!) that will be plotted over the spectrogram (eg pitch contour); can also be a list with extra graphical parameters such as lwd, col, etc. (see examples)

xlab, ylab, main, mar, xaxp

graphical parameters for plotting

grid

if numeric, adds n = grid dotted lines per kHz

width, height, units, res

graphical parameters for saving plots passed to png

...

other graphical parameters

Details

Helper function called by spectrogram() etc to plot a spectrogram.
