Harmonious Monk

A python program that allows you to jazzify your voice.

A Northwestern University EECS 352 Final Project

Team Members:

Instructor: Prof. Bryan Pardo


Harmonious Monk (HM) currently assumes that you are comfortable with using the command line. HM runs on any OS as long as your OS can install and run the following:

  • Python (>= 2.7)
  • Numpy (>= 1.12.0)
  • Librosa (>= 0.5.0)
  • Aubio (0.4.4) and it's Python Module
  • SciPy (>= 0.9)

An easy way to check if these are installed correctly is to import them. If no errors come up, you should be good to go.


Open your favorite command line interface (CLI) and navigate to a convenient folder on your computer. Run the following command:

$ git clone

And you're done!

If you don't have git, you can download the ZIP to a convenient location and unzip there.


Use your favorite audio manipulation program to record a clip of your speech. Save it as a .wav file. Once that's done, save it in the folder where Harmonious Monk is.

If you don't have a favorite audio manipulation program, we recommend Audacity. It's free and easy!

Next open your CLI and navigate to the folder where Harmonious Monk has been installed on your computer. Run the following command:

$ python your_sound_file.wav {volume} {threshold}

where volume is a postive float greater than 0 and threshold is a float between 0 and 1.

Congrats! Open up the folder where Harmonious Monk is to find the harmonized sound file, listen, and enjoy!
