Project Description


The `audio` package exists to simplify the installation of the following packages:

- `audio.bitstream`,
- `audio.coders`,
- `audio.filters`,
- `audio.fourier`,
- `audio.frames`,
- `audio.index`,
- ``,
- `audio.lp`,
- `audio.quantizers`,
- `audio.shrink`,
- `audio.wave`.

The easy way to install it is to use the [pip] package manager:

$ sudo pip install --upgrade audio

Use the same command to update all packages to their latest stable release.

Follow the instructions below if `pip` is not available on your system.


Most of the dependencies of these packages are automatically managed, but
some dependencies still need to be manually installed beforehand:

1. **The `pip` package installer.**
[Installation instructions](
for all platforms.

On Ubuntu:

$ sudo apt-get install python-pip


2. **[NumPy] -- Numerical Python.**
Unless you know what you are doing, use existing binary packages.

On Ubuntu:

$ sudo apt-get install python-numpy


3. **[PyAudio] -- Python bindings for PortAudio.**
Refer to [PyAudio] for general installation instructions.

On Ubuntu:

$ sudo apt-get install python-pyaudio


4. **[NLTK] and [TIMIT] -- Natural Language Toolkit & Acoustic-Phonetic Speech Corpus**

TIMIT is an extra corpus that be installed separately, see [here][NLTK-install-data].
