Topic: Hearing cracks, aka. I did it. (7 msgs / 106 lines)
1) From: Jim Gundlach
In addition to the sound of the roaster hiding the cracking sound, my  
ears have suffered from the noises from loud rock and roll, dragsters  
without mufflers, rifles and shotguns, as well the sounds enjoyed by  
kids and grand kids.  As a result I simply cannot hear the roasting  
sounds I need to hear.  I got an application for my iPhone called  
Spectoghram which visually displays sounds.  First and second crack  
sounds are distinct and easily detected on the screen.  The last time  
I over roasted, I simply forgot to put Spectogram running on the  
iPhone by the roaster.

Pecan Jim, this is just too cool!
Every day I find a new reason to pay attention to this list.
Say, Jim, I will be going to the IGnoble awards this year in San  
Diego. AS a past recipient (I believe) is there anyone there to who  
you wish me to offer your greetings?

Do you mean "Spectrogram," an app that costs $4.95?

Heh, did you start using that because of my initial report, or was it independently of that?
I did find that the scrolling of the app is jerky on my original iPhone if you use the built-in mic, but smooth with an external mic.
Also note that the internal mic has a big notch at around 4K.

I'm afraid it was independent.  I was browsing through iPhone  
applications and ran across it while the roaster was running just to  
my left.  I put left and front together and ordered it.  For  
monitoring the roaster for first and second crack sounds, the built in  
mike does a good job putting distinct graphical blips so I haven't had  
to make improvements.   What do you use it for?
