Audio in python

This page tries to provide a starting point for those who want to work with audio in combination with python. If you are looking for podcast and such on Python you are not at the right place here, but PythonAudioMaterial is. If you are creating a game, most of what you are looking for may already be included in the many PythonGameLibraries that are available.

Built in modules

The [http://docs.python.org/lib/mmedia.html Multimedia Services] allow for some basic audio functionality in python. It consists of the following modules:
