If you want to try some sound processing in Python (with neural network or otherwise) and don’t know where to start, then this article is for you. This post is for absolute beginners. What do we want? Basically 3 tasks. Read and write audio files in different formats (WAV, MP3, WMA etc.). Play the sound on your computer. Represent the sound as a waveform, and process it: filter, resample, build spectrograms etc.
