====== pebsaq ====== pebsaq is a poor synthesizer. License ======= pebsaq is free software under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 3 (or any later version). The author of pebsaq is Niels Serup, contactable at ns@metanohi.name. This is version 0.1.0 of the program. Installing ========== Way #1 ------ Just run this (requires that you have python-setuptools installed):: $ sudo easy_install pebsaq Way #2 ------ Get the newest version of pebsaq at http://metanohi.name/projects/pebsaq/ or at http://pypi.python.org/pypi/pebsaq Extract the downloaded file and run this in a terminal:: # python setup.py install Dependencies ============ Python 2.4+ is probably a requirement. In any case, it does not work with Python 3. ``pyalsaaudio`` + Web address: http://pyalsaaudio.sourceforge.net/ + License: Python Software License + Installing: + In general: ``$ sudo easy_install pyalsaaudio`` (requires ``libasound2-dev`` and ``python-dev``) + On DEB-based distributions: ``$ sudo apt-get install python-alsaaudio`` + On RPM-based distributions: ``$ sudo yum install python-alsaaudio`` + On other distributions: probably something similar + Author: Casper Wilstrup <cwi at aves dk> ``pygame`` + Web address: http://www.pygame.org/ + License: GNU Lesser General Public License + Installing: + In general: ``$ sudo easy_install pygame`` + On DEB-based distributions: ``$ sudo apt-get install python-pygame`` + On RPM-based distributions: ``$ sudo yum install pygame`` + On other distributions: probably something similar ``qvikconfig`` + Web address: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/qvikconfig/ + License: GPLv3+ + Installing: ``$ sudo easy_install qvikconfig`` + Author: Niels G. W. Serup Note that ``qvikconfig`` is included with pebsaq, so you don't really have to install it. Optional extras --------------- If present, pebsaq will also use these Python modules: ``termcolor`` + Web address: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/termcolor/ + License: GPLv3+ + Installing: ``$ sudo easy_install termcolor`` + Author: Konstantin Lepa <konstantin lepa at gmail com> Note that ``termcolor`` is included with pebsaq, so you don't really have to install it. ``setproctitle`` + Web address: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/setproctitle/ + License: New BSD License + Installing: ``$ sudo easy_install setproctitle`` + Author: Daniele Varrazzo <daniele varrazzo at gmail com> Using ===== Running ``pebsaq`` with no arguments will start the utility in interactive mode. In interactive mode you can interactively change the frequency and the strengths of the waves. A nice wave will also be drawn to the screen. Running ``pebsaq --help`` will show a list of available command-line options. These options can also be specified in config files. Config files use a ``property = value`` syntax (e.g. ``frequency = 367`` or ``square strength = 2``) separated by newlines. Press 3 to decrease the frequency by 10Hz. Press 6 to increase the frequency by 10Hz. Press down arrow key to decrease the amplitude by 0.1. Press down arrow key to increase the amplitude by 0.1. Press 1 to decrease the sine strength by 1. Press 2 to increase the sine strength by 1. Press 4 to decrease the square strength by 1. Press 5 to increase the square strength by 1. Press 7 to decrease the triangle strength by 1. Press 8 to increase the triangle strength by 1. Press 0 to mute pebsaq. Press ESC to exit pebsaq. This document ============= Copyright (C) 2010, 2012 Niels G. W.
