Music and Audio Research Library

Project Description
MARLib - A Music and Audio Research Library
Under development by the Music and Audio Research Lab (MARL) at NYU


1. Abstracted audio file reading & writing (internal buffering)
2. Integration with SoX for various CODEC support

Under Development
1. Basic time-frequency transforms
2. Integration with SoX for various CODEC support

How to use the documentation
Documentation is available inline as docstrings provided within the code. In
time, it is our intention to host a Sphynx-like online reference to facilitate
ease of use.

Examples provided assume that each module has been imported as its first
characters in uppercase::

>>> import marlib.audiofile as AF
>>> import marlib.timefreq as TF

...where code snippets are indicated by three greater-than signs.

Use the built-in ``help`` function to view a function's docstring::

>>> help(TF.mel)

Available subpackages

This package builds upon freely available Python libraries at various
stages of maturity:

- NumPy: Numerical Computing in Python
- SciPy: Scientific Computing in Python

Additionally, this library takes advantage of SoX, a command
line utility for non-wave file support and audio file conversion.
If you do not currently have SoX, it can be obtained here:

SoX functionality is currently supported under Unix-like OS's only,
(sorry, Windows). However, extending this library should be straightforward
if necessary. Note that SoX is required only for file conversions and
non-wave file formats, so - while strongly encouraged - SoX is not
truly mandatory.
