Sound Field Synthesis Toolbox
Python implementation of the Sound Field Synthesis Toolbox.
- Python Package Index:
Obviously, you’ll need Python. We normally use Python 3.x, but it should also work with Python 2.x. NumPy and SciPy are needed for the calcuations. If you also want to plot the resulting sound fields, you’ll need matplotlib.
Instead of installing all of them separately, you should probably get a Python distribution that already includes everything, e.g. Anaconda.
Once you have installed the above-mentioned dependencies, you can use pip to download and install the latest release with a single command:
pip install sfs --user
If you want to install it system-wide for all users (assuming you have the necessary rights), you can just drop the --user option.
To un-install, use:
pip uninstall sfs
If you want to keep up with the latest and greatest development version you should get it from Github:
git clone https://github.com/sfstoolbox/sfs-python.git cd sfs-python python setup.py develop --user
