Normalized Spectrum for easy comparison of relative harmonic intensity in Overtone Analyzer

Video

Published on Apr 11, 2013
This video shows how to compare the relative intensity of the harmonics in a recording with the new normalized spectral display in Overtone Analyzer. Instead of showing the absolute intensity in the spectrum, each point in time is scaled so that the loudest harmonic at that point has zero decibel, and the intensity of all other harmonics is relative to the loudest one. This makes it easier to visualize the spectral composition and the timbre of the sound.

The overtone singing is done by Wolfgang Saus (http://www.oberton.org), and the software is Overtone Analyzer (http://www.sygyt.com).
