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.
