Sound recognition
May 13th, 2009, 7:03am
Hi.  I want to have processing recognize when Im blowing into the microphone and when the sound has stopped and then to activate a command when this is happening.  Does anyone have any idea on how to accomplish this? thanks.

Prowler had an interesting project with recording notes.

Might be overkill for just having a sound/no sound test. Undecided
You could use Minim (or another sound library) to get the volume level from the mic.

Hi! Did you ever manage to read the blowing sound via your mic? I would  love to see your solution code as I am trying to do something similar and am so stuck!

Thx for your time!

I have written a simple processing sketch that moves a small cloud across the screen when someone blows into the microphone (or makes any other noises Smiley)

the code is available here

Thanks, Guru.  Works like a charm for testing in both windows and linux.
