Sonification Talk Page[edit]

Added some stuff about techniques of sonification... not conclusive no, but I don't think most readers would know what an auditory envelope is :) Mind you, I don't know any researchers using them in sonifications either, but that's not to say they couldn't be used. --Sparkleyone 09:19, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

If anyone knows about sonification, as in the cell lysis technique, that'd make a good addition. Maybe I'll do that when I have a bit more time. Sean 07:08, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

Does Morse Code count?[edit]

Does Morse Code count?

I am not an expert in sonification, but I would call Morse Code more of an encoding scheme than a technique of sonification. I believe that data sonification usually deals with continuous quantities (or time series) as opposed to providing a standard encoding a closed set of symbols. -- mbsullivan

No. morse code is a form of Character encoding. Sonification is more complex and translates large volumes of data. Artlondon (talk) 13:34, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Interest in a Simple Data Sonification Tool[edit]

About a year ago, for a research position at UC Irvine, I created a simple program to convert time-series data to sound. If anybody is interested in such a tool (probably for simple visualization/demonstration purposes) I would be happy to allow free use of the program and even build in support for different data formats. If there is no interest, I would prefer not to do so simply for my own health. There is a SF page @ http://sourceforge.net/projects/wave2wav/ should anybody have use for the tool. It should work under Windows or most Unix variants (I think I was too lazy to post a suitable binary, if anybody wants them for Linux let me know and I'll compile the program for you). -- mbsullivan

Code to music ?[edit]

Is it possible, or nonsense, to reverse the process of sonification ? I mean, you give a music in input, and you obtain a code written in Java or another programming language. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.48.232.14 (talk) 13:07, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

This page is to discuss the article itself, not ask questions of the subject. Artlondon (talk) 13:31, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

What's the verb of sonification?[edit]

For a research topic I'm searching the verb of what happens with sounds which are a result of (parameter mapping) sonification. How would you say: Is the data being sonifyed or sonificated? I couldn't nowhere find a hint to answer this question, maybe because sonification hasn't established as a well-known rendering technique yet. sjor 16:25, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Trimming external links[edit]

The external links are excessive and bewildering. I'll be cutting most of these out, down to two or three, to fit in with the Wikipedia policy on links. If you think a tool or technique is worthy of mention in the article, please find a good source to cite and add it to the article where relevant. I'm happy to chat about this more, so chime in if you have any thoughts. Statisfactions (talk) 00:03, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Sonification do-a-thon at ICAD 2017[edit]

The International Conference on Auditory Display (ICAD) 2017 is taking place at Pennsylvania State University's University Park campus on June 20-23, 2017, and will feature a sonification-focused do-a-thon with a focus on improving sonification-related information on Wikipedia, particularly by way of adding sonifications to existing articles (e.g. as in dysgraphia). Ideas for the event are most welcome. We'll also set up an event page soon. -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 12:52, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
