Python bindings for sox and libsox.

Project Description

pysox - python bindings for libsox

Installation from source

Required prerequisite are the development libraries of sox at version 14.3.x, i.e. the header files and libraries to link against. Specifically you need sox.h in your include path and and libsox.a in your link path. Pysox will not compile against any sox version prior to 14.3.0.

Then simply run:

python build

python install


See the examples included in the source, or the api doc at

import pysox

#open an audio file
testwav = pysox.CSoxStream("test.wav")
#create an audio file with the same parameters as the input file
out = pysox.CSoxStream('out.wav', 'w', testwav.get_signal())

#create an effects chain using the signal and encoding parameters of our files
chain = pysox.CEffectsChain(testwav, out)

Python 3

This package is compatible with python 3, tested on 2.6.6, 2.7.1, 3.0.1, 3.1.3 and 3.2. It is however not compatible with python 2.5 and prior.
