Python Audio Tools is a collection of audio handling programs that work from the command line. These include programs for CD extraction, track conversion from one audio format to another, track renaming and retagging, track identification, CD burning from tracks, and more. It supports internationalized track filenames and metadata using Unicode. It works with high-definition, multi-channel audio as well as CD-quality. Track conversion uses multiple CPUs or CPU cores if available to greatly speed the transcoding process. Track metadata can be retrieved from MusicBrainz, FreeDB, or compatible servers. Audio formats supported are WAV, FLAC, WavPack, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, M4A, Apple Lossless, and more.
mididings is a MIDI router and processor for ALSA and JACK MIDI. It supports filtering and modifying MIDI events in many different ways, and allows for seamless switching between different patches even while playing. mididings is scriptable and extensible in Python, while the core MIDI processing code is written in C++ in order to allow low latencies and realtime usage.
PyKaraoke is a karaoke player which supports the CDG (MP3+G, OGG+G), MIDI (.KAR, .MID), and MPEG formats. The project consists of a GUI frontend and separate pycdg, pykar, and pympg player modules. The GUI provides a full application frontend, with playlist functionality and a searchable database. The pycdg, pykar, and pympg modules can also be used as standalone command-line players or imported into any Python programs that would like CDG, MIDI/KAR, or MPEG playback.
aubio is a library for audio labelling. Features include onset detection, silence detection, beat tracking, and pitch detection. The goal of this project is to provide automatic labelling features to other audio software projects. Functions can be used offline in sound editors and software samplers, or online in audio effects and virtual instruments.
The TunePimp library is an audio file tagging library that uses MusicBrainz for track identification/lookup. It will attempt to automatically identify the files, and will present the user with possible matches for files that are not automatically identified. Once the files are identified, it writes new metadata tags to the music files and writes the files to a user-defined directory hierarchy. It supports WAV, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, and FLAC files.
