    Audio Analysis

    Hi,

    I am looking for a web site, book, tutorial, or other to teach me how
    to analyze audio streams being inputed to a computer or through files
    already in place (MP3, WAV, etc.). I have not worked with Audio
    before but have read up enough that I should not have to start at the
    basics.

    The reason behind me learning this is so that I will be able to
    implement it into my program that will analyze a voice stream and
    detect certain qualities that are standard and unique to a person's
    voice. This will then be inputed to a database along with the
    person's identification. Basicly, a Voice Print Identification system
    using Biometrics.

    If anyone is able to help with this I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thank you very much,

    - D

    > web site
    Try google

    > book
    Try a local university library

    Seriously, if you can't figure that out, the problems you face are beyond you.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    wow, obviously i've tried google. Of course, once I got past the first 50 results of nothing, I decided I would try and get other people's opinions on where to go

    Library - never have time to go.

    So try being a little more helpful next time

    You may teach a person from now until doom's day, but that person will only know what he learns himself.

    Now I know what doesn't work.

    A problem is understood by solving it, not by pondering it.

    For a bit of humor check out xkcd web comic http://xkcd.com/235/

    Which is exactly what you got, and now you're moaning about it.

    You only stated your problem, not what you had already done about it. So I took a shot and guessed that you had done nothing.

    Now if you had said that the first 50 hits of "Voice Print Identification system" on google provided no useful information, then that would have at least given us something to work with. But 50 hits of one search term really doesn't sound like much effort on your part either.
    You didn't even mention what search term you had actually tried. For all I know, it could have been "tom and jerry episode guide".

    Not that it would help much, because there's still the small matter of your skill level, despite what you presume of yourself ("but have read up enough that I should not have to start at the basics.")
    Anything we suggest would fall into one of 3 categories
    - "too easy" - yeah, thanks, I knew that already
    - "too hard" - geez, slow down buddy, thats way over my head
    - "just right"
    So that would be a 66% chance of another round of people trying to help you and you not getting anywhere.

    So saying something like
    I tried this site but it was too difficult for me to follow would have given us an objective calibration of your skill level.

    Oh yeah, you were massively off topic posting this on the C++ board in the first place.

    How is it off-topic? It's a C++ Program.

    And that long lecture you gave just wasted everyone's time, including yours. Why didn't you just say somethin like "OK whatever"?

    And to manofsteel972, thanks. Those links should help me a bit.
