FFT is a program to decompose a piece of recorded music into its constituent musical notes.
To actually retrieve the notes that were originally played is not a trivial task, and this program
certainly only provides a smattering of clues, but it does provide some assistance in the task
of transcribing a piece of music by ear.
- Supports WAV, AU and MP3 format soundfiles
- Choice of central channel, left or right channel, or stereo difference channel
(via the ‘Stereo effect...’ button on the toolbar)
- Adjustable brightness (the first slider on the toolbar)
- Adjustable time resolution / note definition (the second slider on the toolbar)
- Cached and multithreaded display ensures that the user-interface is always responsive
