scikit-maad, soundscape analysis in Python

Project description


scikit-maad is an open source Python package dedicated to the quantitative analysis of environmental audio recordings. This package was designed to (1) load and process digital audio, (2) segment and find regions of interest, (3) compute acoustic features, and (4) estimate sound pressure level. This workflow opens the possibility to scan large audio datasets and use powerful machine learning techniques, allowing to measure acoustic properties and identify key patterns in all kinds of soundscapes.



scikit-maad dependencies:

  • Python >= 3.5
  • NumPy >= 1.13
  • SciPy >= 0.18
  • scikit-image >= 0.14

scikit-maad is hosted on PyPI. To install, run the following command in your Python environment:

$ pip install scikit-maad

To install the latest version from source clone the master repository and from the top-level folder call:

About the authors

This work started in 2016 at the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle (MNHN) in Paris, France. It was initiated by Juan Sebastian Ulloa, supervised by Jérôme Sueur and Thierry Aubin at the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle and the Université Paris Saclay respectively. Python functions have been added by Sylvain Haupert, Juan Felipe Latorre and Juan Sebastián Ulloa in 2018. New features are currently being developed and a stable release will be available by 2021.
