The Snack Sound Toolkit is designed to be used with a scripting
Snack adds commands to play, record, and process sound and supports
in-memory sound objects, file based audio, and streaming audio.
It handles fileformats such as WAV, MP3, AU, AIFF, and NIST/Sphere.
Snack is extensible, new commands, filters, and sound file formats can
be added using the Snack C-library. An easy to build example extension
is contained in the source distribution.
Snack also does sound visualization, e.g. waveforms and spectrograms.
The visualization objects update in real-time and can output postscript.

Snack works with Tcl8.0 - Tcl8.4 and Python 1.5.2-2.0

Subject: Distributing Python
Message-ID: <3a0fecee@news.xtml.co.uk>

I'd like to distribute some Python files. I use Win95/Win2k so Zip archived
files are preferrable/natural for me.

How portable are Zip files?

What would be a better solution?

    Python 2.0 has a linuxaudiodev module. You can also use PyESD.

    Hmm, the linux audiodev modules (or simply audiomodule) shipped with python 2.0
    does not support playback of soundfiles. Or this is at least what I think, but I'm
    not a sound guru. It seems like the audiodev modules only support manipulating raw
    audiodata. What I need is a simple way
    to play back some wav files and I need to do this in a non-graphical environment.
    This means that I cannot use the Snack toolkit. I would also like to avoid having
    to use a systemcall and a third-party soundprogram such as "play". I can very
    well use C-code with a simple python wrapper around it but ultimately I would like
    to avoid having to install any code.

    In other words:

    I need some simple code that I can include directly into a non-gui python
    application to allow me to play back wav files.

    I run python 2.0c1 on Linux Redhat 7.0. All help is welcomed,
