In python, I'm going to create a spectrogram from a .wav file

Like this image, I want the final saved image similar to this

I just need a spectrogram that has many colors. I also tried tinker with this code, to give a try and add the colors, but after spending too much time, I couldn't able to figure it out. 

When I tried this tutorial

In this code, on the 17th line, the code got crashed, when I tried to run the code with the error

TypeError: 'numpy.float64' object cannot be interpreted as an integer.

Line 17:

samples = np.append(np.zeros(np.floor(frameSize/2.0)), sig)

I also tried fixing it by casting

samples = int(np.append(np.zeros(np.floor(frameSize/2.0)), sig))

Tried in this way too,

samples = np.append(np.zeros(int(np.floor(frameSize/2.0)), sig))

None of these worked. I just need to know how to convert my .wav file to spectrograms with many colors, so that it would be helpful for me to analyze them.

Try scipy.signal.spectrogram

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

from scipy import signal

from import wavfile

sample_rate, samples ='path-to-mono-audio-file.wav')

frequencies, times, spectrogram = signal.spectrogram(samples, sample_rate)

plt.pcolormesh(times, frequencies, spectrogram)


plt.ylabel('Frequency [Hz]')

plt.xlabel('Time [sec]')

Make sure, that your .wav file should be mono (single channel), not a stereo (dual channel).

I recommend you to read this scipy documentation. Just click on this link for documentation
