Pythonic Audio Library and Codecs Environment
Palace is a Python 3D audio API wrapping around alure. To quote alure's README,
It uses OpenAL for audio rendering, and provides common higher-level features such as file loading and decoding, buffer caching, background streaming, and source management for virtually unlimited sound source handles.
- 3D positional sound rendering
- Environmental effects: reverb, atmospheric air absorption, sound occlusion and obstruction
- Binaural (HRTF) rendering
- Out-of-the-box audio decoding of FLAC, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, Opus, WAV, AIFF, etc.
- Modern Pythonic API:
withcontext manager, type annotation
Palace requires Python 3.6+ for runtime and pip for installation.
Palace can be install from the Python Package Index via simply
pip install palace
Wheel distributions are built exclusively for GNU/Linux on amd64. If you want to help packaging for other platforms, please reach out on our mailing list.
Aside from the build dependencies listed in
pyproject.toml, one will
additionally need compatible Python headers, alure, a C++14 compiler,
CMake 2.6+ (and probably
git for fetching the source).
Palace can then be compiled and installed by running
pip install git+https://git.sr.ht/~cnx/palace
One may start with the
examples for sample usage of palace.
For further information, Python's
help is your friend and
the API is also available for online reference.
