Python bindings for the gnuspeech tube resonance model
This package is a Python wrapper for the [gnuspeech] Tube Resonance Model (TRM).
Install with the setup script :
python setup.py install
Or with pip :
pip install lmj.trm
The primary interface provided by the package is the lmj.trm.synthesize function. This function converts a numpy array containing a sequence of control parameters into a numpy array containing sound samples, using the functionality provided by the TRM. Under the covers, the control parameters are serialized into the data structures used by the gnuspeech code, and the resulting tube model synthesizes audio samples that are produced by the vocal tract model when using those control parameters.
The lmj.trm.TubeModel class performs the waveguide simulation, and the lmj.trm.Parameters class wraps the tube configuration parameters with some documentation.
## Gnuspeech wrapper
The gnuspeech C code is copied verbatim from gnuspeech/Frameworks/Tube/ (available from [http://svn.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/osx/trunk/?root=gnuspeech]), then swigged to provide a low-level Python wrapper, and finally wrapped again in a higher-level Python library that integrates numpy and performs memory and data structure conversions between user code and the wrapped gnuspeech library.
Many, many thanks go to the gnuspeech folks, who have released gnuspeech as open source and provided a well-written, usable library for acoustic simulation. This package would not exist without gnuspeech.
NB: The code here does not wrap the entire gnuspeech project !! The TRM is just a small part of the overall project : it is just one of the boxes in the block diagram on the gnuspeech web site.
