Plot contains many plot functions that can be used to visualize pyfar audio objects in the time and frequency domain for inspecting data and generating scientific plots.

The plots are based on Matplotlib and all plot functions return Matplotlib axis objects for a flexible customization of plots. In addition most plot functions pass keyword arguments (kwargs) to Matplotlib.

This is an example for customizing the line color using a keyword argument and the axis limits using the Matplotlib axis object:

>>> import pyfar as pf
>>> noise = pf.signals.noise(2**14)
>>> ax = pf.plot.freq(noise, color=(.3, .3, .3))
>>> ax.set_ylim(-60, -20)

Interactive plots

It is often helpful to quickly navigate through the channels of multi-channel data or zoom into the plot around a specific frequency or amplitude. This can be done with the pyfar keyboard shortcuts and requires an interactive backend like QtAgg.
