Simulators and More

Use simulators and other tools to understand acoustics properties.

Wave on a String

Explore the wonderful world of waves! Even observe a string vibrate in slow motion. Wiggle the end of the string and make waves, or adjust the frequency and amplitude of an oscillator.

Sound Wave Simulator

This simulation lets you see sound waves. Adjust the frequency or volume and you can see and hear how the wave changes. Move the listener around and hear what she hears.

Spectrogram Lab

This spectrum analyzer creates a graph of all the frequencies that are present in a sound at a given time. The resulting graph is known as a spectrogram.
