Sonic Visualiser is a program for viewing and analysing the contents
of music audio files.
With Sonic Visualiser you can:
* Load audio files in various formats and view their waveforms
* Look at audio visualisations such as spectrogram views, with
interactive adjustment of display parameters
* Annotate audio data by adding labelled time points and defining
segments, point values and curves
* Run feature-extraction plugins to calculate annotations
automatically, using algorithms such as beat trackers, pitch
detectors and so on
* Import annotation data from various text formats and MIDI files
* Play back the original audio with synthesised annotations, taking
care to synchronise playback with the display position
* Slow down playback and loop segments of interest, including
seamless looping of complex non-contiguous areas
* Export annotations and audio selections to external files.
* Sonic Visualiser can also be controlled remotely using the Open Sound
Control (OSC) protocol

2019-01-30 - Konstantin Voinov <>
- Update to version  3.2.1
* Fix failure to record from built-in microphone on macOS 10.14
(caused by lack of microphone permission request text)
* Fix crash when closing SV or starting a new session during recording
* Fix crash on exit in some builds that disable OSC support
* Fix flashing effect when scrolling certain configurations of colour 3d
plot layer leftwards
Changes in version 3.2
* Add ability to zoom closer than one sample per pixel, so as to see
the interpolated signal level between samples
* Add oversampling control to the spectrogram and spectrum layers
* Highlight and label frequency peaks in the spectrum as the mouse
rolls over them, when enabled in the parameter area
* Add feature to convert and import audio from a CSV data file
* Add some new colour maps, and restore the old Blue on Black one
* Speed up spectrum rendering at high resolutions
* Fix failure to pass Nyquist bins correctly to
frequency-domain-input Vamp plugins in some circumstances
* Fix sometimes incorrect shortcut associations for new-layer menu
* Various other rendering improvements and bug fixes
- Refreshed sonic-visualiser-system-dataquay.patch
2018-10-26 - Wolfgang Bauer <>
- Use gcc7 on Leap 42.3 to fix build
2018-10-12 - Luigi Baldoni <>
- Update to version 3.1.1
* Fix failure to record correctly into an empty session with
certain audio drivers
* Fix failure to run LADSPA plugins at all, except with some
unusual path layouts
* Fix failure to silence sonified notes when rewinding backwards
or jumping back from a loop endpoint
2018-08-06 -
- Fixed the tests and dropped
2018-07-17 -
- Update to version 3.1
* Add Plugins tab to Preferences dialog, from which you can
review the plugin load paths and see which plugins were
loaded from which locations, and also customise load paths
(though the various path environment variables are still
* Stream the export of audio data and other CSV data so that
very large exports don't hang the UI or run us out of memory
(thanks to Lucas Thompson)
* Ensure vertical scale appears for auto-align layers when
there is nothing else to auto-align them to
* Fix another long-standing Windows-platform wide-char/utf8
conversion problem, with environment variable naming and
* Improve handling of incomplete session loads, i.e.
situations where the audio files referred to by a session
could not be found - previously the session could be re-saved
immediately thus losing the audio reference; now at least we
disable Save (enabling only Save As) and show a warning
* Update pane and layer menu shortcuts so that the
waveform/spectrogram/etc shortcuts (Shift+G etc) operate on
the source model in the currently-selected pane rather than
the main model. This is a backward-incompatible change but is
a far more intuitive way for the function to work
* Use dark background for bright colours in time-value/note/etc
layers as well as e.g. waveforms - this is how it was always
"intended to" work, but it is a backward-incompatible change
* Make "Select All" select the whole span of everything that
exists, not just the main model
* Add horizontal scale to Spectrum layer
* Improve spacing and labelling of vertical log scales
* Update build system for better Cap'n Proto version support
and to use Repoint for code management in the repository
* Various other bug fixes
- Dropped piper.capnp (fixed upstream)
- Refreshed sonic-visualiser-remove-svcore-test.patch
- Added sonic-visualiser-system-dataquay.patch
- Spec cleanup
2017-09-14 -
- Build against dataquay also in Tumbleweed
