Using Python in music
Examples of audio and MIDI with Python 3.
The examples are being published in the wiki at LinuxCabal:
wsine.py has a simple function that generates a sine wave at a given frequency, with a specified sampling rate, for a certain duration.
The data is stored in a simple file that can be reproduced with a standard audio player.
This produces the file sine.raw. Each data is 16-bit signed little endian, with a sampling rate of 44,100Hz and a single channel (mono).
To playback on the ALSA default PCM device:
aplay -f S16 -r 44100 -c 1 sine.raw
- The meaning of the options:
- -f = format
- -r = sampling rate
- -c = channels
