SQA – Prominent Tone Analysis

Sound Quality Analysis conducts Prominent Tone Analysis on audio WAV file recordings

Prominence Ratio (dB) – A standardized method for analyzing a sound for tones that will be judged as being “prominent” by most listeners to the sound.  Prominence Ratio is similar to Tonality in that it compares the energy in tones within a sound to the broadband energy around tone, using a Fast Fourier Transform Analysis.  Prominence Ratio has been standardized in international standards such as ISO 7779 and ECMA-74.
