I am doing some scripting where I intend to create many spectrograms and save them to image files. First I used the interactive Spectrogram in the Signal Analyzer and identified the settings that I want to use in the script. However I cannot find a combination of settings in the function that gives the same appearance as the interactive tool output. Specifically the interactive spectrogram looks like it may have been smoothed in the frequency direction whereas the scripted spectrogram is much more noisy.
The input data are the same in both cases. My scripted spectrogram is:
I've tried many combinations of parameters but the smooth vs. noisy appearance always remains.
There is no Leakage setting in the function but that is not the difference.
I read the manual page for how the spectrogram is constructed but there is no clue there.
