+ Spectromatic is a program for generating spectrograms from audio
+ files. Spectrograms are a form of simple time-frequency analysis which
+ lets you see how the distribution of energy at different frequencies
+ in an audio stream change over time. For example, if you play a scale
+ on a musical instrument, you will see a climbing and/or descending
+ pattern of blobs as you move from left to right.
+ Spectromatic reads its input as mono or stereo 16-bit wave files, and
+ writes the output image to an elongated PNG image (colour for stereo,
+ grayscale for mono audio).
