I am a new user of Sonic Visualiser, which I have been mainly using to work out transcriptions of songs into standard musical notation. I have found a combination of a Melodic Range Spectrogram with a Melodia layer really helpful by showing a representation of the melodic line and enabling me to approximate notation of the melody. The Melodia layer effectively highlights the vocal melody amongst what can sometimes be a quite busy-looking spectrogram. There is, however, one annoyance associated with using this combination. With just the Melodic Range Spectrogram by itself, wherever the pointer is situated on the spectrogram the pitch of the note closest to that point is identified. However, when the Melodia layer is added, (as far as I can tell) that is no longer possible. The pointer gives a value in Hertz, but not the music notation value. I realise I could convert the Hertz value, but this would be fairly tedious and time-consuming, so what I tend to do is keep my eye on the spot and alternate between the spectrogram plus Melodia and the spectrogram only (where I’m able to read the note value). So, my question is this: Is there any way, with the Melodia layer in place, that the note value (equivalent to the pointer position) can be shown?
