Intro 5.4. The Formant object

The formant contours that are visible in the SoundEditor or TextGridEditor window, can be copied as a separate Formant object to the List of Objects. To do this, choose Extract visible formant contour from the Formant menu.

Another way to get a separate Formant object is to select a Sound object in the list choose Sound: To Formant (burg)... (preferred) or any of the other methods from the Formants & LPC menu.

Saving formant contours to disk

To save formant contours to disk, select the Formant object in the list and choose one of the commands in the Save menu.

Later on, you can read the saved file again with Read from file... from the Open menu.

Drawing formant contours

To draw a Formant object to the Picture window, select it and choose any of the commands in the Draw menu. From the Picture window, you can print it, save it to an EPS file, or copy it to the clipboard for inclusion in your word processor.
