Option 1: Audio Onset

If you want to analyze music with obvious percussion or abrupt sound effects, select Audio Onset.

In the Threshold of Onsets option, you can set the value in dB, under which the onset will not be detected.

If the percussion in the audio is strong, increasing the threshold should analyze and mark peaks of the audio waveform precisely. If the percussion is quite weak, you need to decrease the threshold to make sure it can be detected, meanwhile more detections might appear in the result.

Option 2: Audio Beat

In the Highlights Interval option, you can set the value of beats to decide the interval between every two highlights.

In the detection results, red points represent highlights and gray points represent general beats. If the highlights are located on undesired beats, you can change the Offset to move them forward.
