Pitch Section

SpeechFlair uses Cepstral analysis to calculate pitch. Below are the parameters.

Window Length (ms): the length of windowing in milliseconds. This parameter will affect the male/female voice ranges. For lower pitch (men), you want to increase the window length and for higher pitch (female and children), lower.

Step Size (ms): the step size that above window will follow to complete the analysis. The fewer number will take longer but provides more detail and visa-versa.

Threshold (%): the noise floor that the analysis will ignore for calculations. For noisier signal increase, and reduce for cleaner signals.

Frequency Deviation (Hz): this parameter stablishes a range bar around the track, so that any spurious pitch values outside this range will be ignored.

Calculation range (Hz): the lower and upper limits of calculation in Hertz.

Add frequency grid with spacing (Hz): select if you want to see the grid lines displayed

Spectrogram Section

Show or Do Not Show: Since spectrogram will take some time to complete, you may not want to show this image to save time. However, this display will provide a wealth of information and intriguing visual display of audio.
Bandwidth: the filter selection to display a wide range of display selections. Higher filter values in Hertz, less frequency details and visa-versa.
Frequency Range (Hz): the upper bound display range.
Dynamic Range (dB): the lower the value, the less information will be displayed and visa-versa. In general, for cleaner signals, you want to increase this number to see more details.
Add Frequency Grid with Spacing (Hz): select if you want to see the grid lines displayed
