Class

FFT

Name

analyze()

Examples
import processing.sound.*;

FFT fft;
AudioIn in;
int bands = 512;
float[] spectrum = new float[bands];

void setup() {
  size(512, 360);
  background(255);
    
  // Create an Input stream which is routed into the Amplitude analyzer
  fft = new FFT(this, bands);
  in = new AudioIn(this, 0);
  
  // start the Audio Input
  in.start();
  
  // patch the AudioIn
  fft.input(in);
}      

void draw() { 
  background(255);
  fft.analyze(spectrum);

  for(int i = 0; i < bands; i++){
  // The result of the FFT is normalized
  // draw the line for frequency band i scaling it up by 5 to get more amplitude.
  line(i, height, i, height - spectrum[i]*height*5 );
  } 
}
Description Calculates the current frequency spectrum and returns it as an array with as many elements as frequency bands.
Syntax
.analyze()
.analyze(value)
Parameters
value float[]: an array with as many elements as this FFT analyzer's number of frequency bands
Returnsfloat[]
