Fix missing spectrum plot on Android P.
If you always love playing with the real-time audio spectrum analyzer on any device, you’re sure to love Spectroid Android app. It’s actually fun using this app on the bigger screen, aka, on your PC or laptop too as you get better visuals along with clear frequency.
The dB values that you find in this application are negative and users are always confused about it. That’s because Spectroid 0 dB has a maximum value that a microphone can measure that sound. And if you see negative value in the graph, don’t panic because it’s just because of the system that works in a different way. Once you hit the 0 value, it means the sound has hit the maximum value in the app.
To study more about the spectrum and the real-time frequency resolution in the complete spectrum, it’s essential that you use the zoom in option by using a two-finger pinch-to-zoom gesture. This will help you to understand how the audio varies as compared to the frequency in detail. However, you need to be an expert to understand this overall result as it’s a bit technical. Once you get used to it, it will be all fun using this app on your Android devices or on Windows systems as well.
At times you might see some gaps in the spectrum plot and that is because this app uses multiple FFTs so that it can overlap the frequency and provide better frequency resolution. If a single FFT is used, it will result in lower frequency which you don’t want to see in the results. Hence, this app uses multiple FFTs so as to get maximum frequency resolution in each spectrum.
Of course, it cannot hear as good as our ears do but it’s good up to some extent and you can give it a try now! Download Spectroid today on your devices if you want to study how spectrum works.
