Raven Pro Introductory Tutorials


The Cornell Bioacoustics Research Program is pleased to announce the release of a series of short video tutorials introducing the most widely used features of Raven Pro 1.5 bioacoustic analysis software.

Although these tutorials "begin at the beginning," experienced users may learn something as well.

At present videos are available with English and Hindi soundtracks, but we plan to produce versions with other languages as well.


Now available with soundtrack in Hindi




Sound Analysis Workshop

The next session of the Cornell Bioacoustics Research Program's Sound Analysis Workshop will take place October 15 - 19, 2018 at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in Ithaca, New York, USA.

This introductory workshop features Raven Pro and is intended primarily for biologists interested in analysis, visualization, and measurement of animal sounds. The workshop covers basic principles of spectrographic analysis and measurement of animal sounds, as well as specific tools and techniques in Raven Pro, a sound analysis application program developed by BRP.

Two scholarship positions are available in this workshop for residents of low- and middle-income countries. Scholarships cover tuition for the workshop, morning and mid-day meals, lodging for six nights, and transportation to and from Ithaca. Applications for scholarships must be submitted no later than 22 June. Further information about the scholarships, and application instructions, are available here.

For details, see Sound Analysis Workshop and Scholarships.




SWIFT Autonomous Recording Unit


We are pleased to announce the SWIFT, our new terrestrial autonomous recording unit.

Our hope is that this unit will enable not only researchers, but also hobbyists, from all over the world to collect acoustics data in support of wildlife conservation efforts.
