Analyze and compare bioacoustic recordings

Project Description

Chirp provides a number of related tools for analyzing and comparing bioacoustic recordings. It can operate on recordings stored in standard wave files, with the option of restricting analyses to specific spectrotemporal regions of the recording. Regions are defined with polygons in the time-frequency domain. The tools consist of the following programs:

  • chirp :: inspect spectrograms of recordings and define regions
  • cpitch :: determine the pitch of recordings
  • ccompare :: compare libraries of recordings using pitch or spectrograms

Chirp is not supported on Windows. The Windows binaries are provided only as a convenience.
