The Sound Analysis Toolbox (SATB)

Sound analysis software applications have become com-monplace for exploring music and audio, and important factors including responsive/fast data visualization, flexi-ble code development capabilities, availability of stand-ard/customizable libraries/modules, and the existence of large community of developers have likewise become integral. The widely used MATLAB software, in particu-lar, has played an important role as an all-purpose audio exploration and research tool. However, its flexibility and practicality when exploring large audio data, its lim-itations for synchronized audiovisual exploration, and its deficiencies as an integrated system for audio research is an area that can be improved. In this paper we report on developments on the Sound Analysis Toolbox (SATB), a pure MATLAB-based toolbox that addresses some of MATLAB’s basic deficiencies as an audio research plat-form. We introduce solutions including efficient visuali-zation for literally any sized data, a simple feature ex-traction “plug-in” API, and the sMAT Listener module for spatiotemporal audio-visual exploration
