info Time Domain

The normal wave plot shown when making a recording in Mp3 Audio Editor is a time domain representation of the signal. When recording, Mp3 Audio Editor has taken samples of the signal at certain intervals, quantized them, and stored them as series of digitized values. The wave plot is the result of drawing these samples on the screen with the time evolving along the horizontal axis.

 

3. A selected region indicated with yellow curve on a white background (colors depend on your system settings). The current cursor position is indicated by a blinking line.

 

4. The quick command bar. You can perform various operations with audio data.

 

5. The region list window.

 

6. Time Domain.

 

7. The navigation toolbar for recording, playback and cursor positioning.

 

8. The bar indicating the selected region, the viewed region and the cursor position. During processing, the progress is displayed in the status bar.
