Wheel PyPI Versions Downloads

This package was inspired by MATLAB's msalign function which allows alignment of multiple signals to reference peaks.


pip install msalign


pip install git+


Usage is relatively straightforward. Simply import the function msalign from the package and provide xvals, zvals and peaks. Other parameters can be passed-in using kwargs.

import numpy as np
from msalign import msalign

fname = r"./example_data/msalign_test_data.csv"
data = np.genfromtxt(fname, delimiter=",")
xvals = data[1:, 0]
zvals = data[1:, 1:].T

peaks = [3991.4, 4598, 7964, 9160]
kwargs = dict(
    weights=[60, 100, 60, 100],
    shift_range=[-100, 100],

zvals_new = msalign(xvals, zvals, peaks, **kwargs)
