Sound generator, synthesizer and editor
Splat is a programme to generate some audio data which you may call music. It’s written in Python to make it easy to use, and all the crucial processing parts are implemented in C for fast number crunching. It’s distributed under the terms of the GNU LGPL v3 so you remain a free individual when you use it.
Splat is not a programme to generate live audio in real time, at least not at the moment. So it’s better suited to the studio than to the stage.
To install it, clone the repository or download and extract a source archive, then run:
python setup.py install
Then to generate the included piece called “Dew Drop” with an optional reverb:
python dew_drop.py reverb
This creates dew_drop.wav which you can now play with your favourite player.
Here’s a very small Splat example which creates a 440Hz sound for 1 second, with fade-in and fade-out:
import splat.gen import splat.filters gen = splat.gen.SineGenerator() gen.filters = [splat.filters.linear_fade] gen.run(0.0, 1.0, 440.0) gen.frag.save("A440.wav")
