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,

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

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:

    On Ubuntu:

    $ sudo apt-get install python-pip


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

    $ 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
