Ircam announced that the Partiels audio analysis software is now free to download and use.
Partiels is an audio analysis suite consisting of a standalone application and a collection of Vamp Plug-ins. The collection is now free to download from Ircam’s website.
To download Partiels, you must sign up for a free Ircam user account. The software is compatible with Windows, macOS, and Linux.
If you need a program for detailed audio analysis, Partiels is absolutely worth downloading. It’s a robust collection of audio analysis tools for FFT, transient, formant, and many other types of analysis.
After opening Partiels, you can simply load an audio file to run the analysis. The software will show the spectrogram by default, but you can run multiple analysis methods.
Partiels can load various audio formats, including WAV, MP3, AIFF, and more. It also offers multi-channel audio support, detailed visual customization of the analysis data, and batch file processing.
So, who is this software for?
If you simply need an audio analyzer for mixing, then Partiels is probably overkill. SPAN by Voxenfo is an excellent spectrum analyzer that you can download for free, and you can pair it with the new TDR Prism analyzer from Tokyo Dawn Labs.
If, on the other hand, you’re a professional sound designer, a musicologist, or any other type of professional who requires detailed audio analysis, I suggest giving Partiels a try.
However, keep in mind that the software isn’t very intuitive. It’s recommended to study the provided user manual, because it will help you understand Partiel’s workflow and features.
All things considered, this is a wonderful Christmas gift from Ircam! Check out our Holiday Deals article for more freebies and special discounts you can get this holiday season.
