Is there a Linux way of recording sound from a club or pub/bar using a
real time analyzer
and then getting an average DB level reading?
I would then need to take another reading later and compare the two.
In the UK there is a lot of new legislation re sound levels from bars
and I would like to offer a service to show them the levels they are
I would need some way of printing the levels out in a document.
This will show that if the clubs has a certain sound level on the dance
floor it can't be above a certain level at the street.
75db in the club may read only 65db in the street, meaning they are not
causing a noise problem.
I'm using 64studio/Ardour/Jamin at the moment on debian, but have also
use the planet on Redhat/Fedora.
I'm sure its all in here somewhere I just need to know what to learn.
