  1. Hello, dear all.

    On the site below is pictured a woman on the photo. She is using a program to produce an audiobook I guess.

    The link talks about the most best-selling audiobooks in Brazil by Google Play.

    Do you know which program the woman is using? You can notice that the audio bar on the PC screen is very big. Probably to get a very precision time on the wave audio bar.

    For timing / analysing speech ( ex: subtitling or dubbbing ) such big / very visible audio bar helps a lot.

    I get very interested in such kind of program. If you know such program I would like to know. Or very similar ones. Freewares or not freewares.

    Don't recognize it. Maybe ProTools. But Adobe Audition and Audacity (free) can give you as big a waveform display as you like.

    Hi. I thought it was Cubase. Or some similar professional audio program. Such big waveform is very nice for subtitling purposes!

    Audacity can give a very big a waveform display just like the photo?

    Thanks for your help!

    Best regards

  5. For subtitles and something of this nature, Aegisub it's the best, you can choose waveform or spectrum display, this helps a lot.

  6. Hi, dear all.

    @ amaipaipai

    Hello. Thanks for your tips! I like Aegisub too for timing. But does it possible to make that program to show us a very big waveform on the screen, for timing the audio?

    In the picture at the beginning of the thread the waveform audio is very very big. This help a lot for timing with high precision.

    spectrum display
    Just for newbie curiosity: such feature is for what? I never use it until now. Does it help for timing with more precision? How to use it properly?

    Thanks for your time!

    Best regards

    That DAW on the screen is Reaper.

    Yes, it can get big as you want.

    Yes, it does help to do a more precision job and correct timing.

    A spectrogram mesures signal amplitude or strength that is represented by graphics as demonstrated above, since we are talking about voice there is a thing called vocal sibilance in the syllables C, S, T and Z. This vocal sibilance leaves a pronounced mark in the spectrogram you can't see with a waveform, specially when there are two or more people talking together or the voices are overlapping each other.

    We use the spectrogram so we can have a graphic representation of what is happening in some critical point and especially for precision marking. I've attached a small sample showing some people talking with their voices overlapping, you can clearly identify who is person "A" and who is person "B". The spectrogram is a much more powerful tool to be used to do subtitling and transcriptions than the waveform, the waveform can get the job done but it's is very, very limited.

    Have a good one johner.

    Hi. Nice tips!

    Thanks for your help too! I'll try using spectrum display on Aegisub.

    For curiosity I could found that Reaper can produce subtitles too. Such program is not for subtitling purposes, but can do it also. Maybe not so simple as Aegisub, Subtitle Edit or Sub Station Alpha, but can do it.

    I'll post the links for all interested people in other thread.


    Best regards

    The one pictured might be Reaper. My version is antique but looks quite similar.

    OOps....already mentioned.
