Hey, my names Stuart, Ive only been on once before and recieved some excellent help with my project from Jessica Sant so many thanks to her. It really is appreciated. It now turns out that its best to write my music analysis program in MATLAB. Apparently this shouldnt be too hard but I do need to write code for a music player. Heres the story...
This program in MATLAB needs to read in a file, analyse it via the fourier series and come out with some frequency analysis results. From these, with the right parameters, the program should be able to distinguish between different styles of music (types of music use different instruments and hence different frequencies). Apparently you cant alter or 'tag' the file with a genre so I need to create a seperate text file or a list with an identifier in it i.e. a number or a reserved letter. The player written in java needs to look at this list and pick out certain files depending on which genre the user has chosen from the very simplistic player. Simple.
Not for me. In my head the idea seems really simple and clear but I dont have the java knowledge to back it up. Do you have any ideas concerning the player or list? Im not sure where or how to start. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again,
Stuart.

Hey, Im a student in Leeds (uk) who's currently bumbling through his degree course. The simple fact is Im crap at Java and have unfortunatly been assigned a project to determine musical structure i.e. frequency analysis etc. I then have to create a media library tool that after analysing an mp3 can categorise it through generic traits present in i.e. Rock music. The easiest way I can think of is by finding the frequency of particular instruments and using parameters once such figures have been obtained. Is there a tool that can do such an analysis that is already coded? Otherwise I have a long ay to go ..... help!! If anyone has any bright ideas please let me know, Ive started to fear this project.
