newbie questions re: pvoc and blur
« on: April 02, 2021, 05:30:47 PM »
hi,im trying to get blur working
for this i need to use pvoc right? but pvoc is outputting a .wav file
what should be typed for blur to work?

pvoc anal 1 u3.wav u4

gives me a .wav file output called u4.wav, but that file cant be played back

also is there a way to activate windows command line to remember things so i can use the arrow keys to scroll through previously typed text?

thanks for your help!

pvoc is outputting a .wav format file that you should actually name .ana which is the extension for a spectral audio file. Only cdp programs can read this format and only pvoc can convert it back to .wav and only pvplay can play it. So you should be fine with
  pvoc anal 1 u3.wav u3.ana
  blur blur u3.ana u3blurred.ana 12
  pvplay -i u3blurred.ana
and if you like the result
  pvoc synth u3blurred.ana u3blurred.wav
(check exact syntax yourself, writing this out of my memory)

The windows shell (command line) has a history function, just look it up on
