STFT vs FFT for pretty visualization? 2017-10-04 12:12:29 When using log scale to display the bins, low frequencies usually look ugly unless you use a big FFT size (assume same window type), then at the same time high frequencies are too dense and the monitor has not enough pixels to show the details. Also, using higher FFT size reduces time resolution and uses more CPU.Then I read about STFT, which I roughly understand as using different resolutions at different frequencies.So my question is, human hearing works more like log scale than linear scale, why I can't find any animated STFT analysis on typical DAWs? Because FFT is faster? Because STFT is not suitable for displaying animation? Other reasons?
