I have an audio signal (.wav) and would like to view its spectrum in matlab. Can anybody help me in this manner?
Thanks in advance.
Read it in with wavread()
[signal,fs] = wavread('file.wav');
If signal is Nx2 (two columns), extract one of them
signal = signal(:,1);
If you have the Signal Processing Toolbox, enter
you should first read the audio signal using wavread() function. as a result of reading, the signal will be vectorized. after that, you should use fft() function to get the fourier transform of vectorized signal. at the end plot() the fourier transform of signal. sample code
[xn fs]=wavread('signal_name.wav'); nf=1024; %number of point in DTFT Y = fft(xn,nf); f = fs/2*linspace(0,1,nf/2+1); plot(f,abs(Y(1:nf/2+1)));
