We present PyMAiVAR, a versatile toolbox that encompasses the generation of image representations for audio data including Wave plots, Spectral Centroids, Spectral Roll Offs, Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients (MFCC), MFCC Feature Scaling, and Chromagrams. This wide-ranging toolkit generates rich audio-image representations, playing a pivotal role in reshaping human action recognition. By fully exploiting audio data's latent potential, PyMAiVAR stands as a significant advancement in the field. The package is implemented in Python and can be used across different operating systems.
