Sound spectrogram showing first 6 chirps of 10 s sample above. Click on sound bar to hear graphed song.
spectrogram
Sound spectrogram showing first 3 chirps of 10 s sample above; chirps are slowed to one-eighth speed. This lowers the dominant frequencies to one-eighth of what they were (frequency range at normal speed = 6.0-5.3 kHz; range at one-eighth speed = 0.75-0.66 kHz [=750-660 Hz]) and increases the duration by a factor of 8. Click on sound bar to hear graphed song. spectrogram
Sound spectrogram, again showing first 3 chirps of 10 s sample above, but chirps are slowed to one-twelfth speed. This lowers the dominant frequencies to one-twelfth of what they were (frequency range at normal speed = 6.0-5.3 kHz; range at one-twelfth speed = 0.50-0.44 kHz [=500-440 Hz]) and increases the duration by a factor of 12.
