A command that creates a Pitch object from every selected Sound object.
to perform a pitch analysis, optimized for speech.
The settings that control the recruitment of the candidates are:
Note that if you set the time step to zero, the analysis windows for consecutive measurements will overlap appreciably: Praat will always compute 4 pitch values within one window length, i.e., the degree of oversampling is 4.
A post-processing algorithm seeks the cheapest path through the candidates. The argument that determines the cheapest path is:
This is the algorithm described at Sound: To Pitch (ac)..., with all the parameters not mentioned above set to their standard values.
