[chuck-users] Analyse voice and choose animal

There's an external for pd / max-msp called soundspotter designed for doing
the kind of thing you want: http://www.soundspotter.org/

I'm not intimately familiar with it's workings, but it is open-source and
Michael Casey has written several papers on the subject which you'll find
under 'Research' on that page.  So, if you definitely want to use ChucK (I'd
suggest pd with that external may be the easiest route in the short term),
there'll be lots of useful information there.

If you did what you described with FFT, you would probably be vaguely on the
right track, but I'm afraid it could turn out to be quite a long track...

Good luck, it sounds like a fun idea; and soundspotter should be a perfect
