Hello! I am trying to use this software for a class project by using it to edit audio from class but I am having trouble installing it and starting it up. I have python installed and pip too but for some reason it says I have not installed it. Can someone give me a quick rundown of getting it installed and what commands or things I need to do to get started. (yes i have all ready looked online in Github and their website too) thank you for any help!

Hi

Have you activated your virtual environment before installing trying to install Pyo ? If you don't know what I mean, I suggest you to read this doc https://packaging.python.org/guides/installing-using-pip-and-virtual-environments/ . When you set up a virtual environment it's much more easy to work with Python and the many librairies availbale, it's also safer for your system. Once you have set it up, you just have to activate it and install Pyo with pip as in this link: http://ajaxsoundstudio.com/pyodoc/download.html . After that you can launch your Python IDE while the VE activated, after your session is finished you just have to deactivate it. I found weird to work like that at the beginning but it's not complicated, plus like that it's easier to control the Python versions your working with.

Hi,

Simplest way to get started:

Windows:

1- Open a Command Prompt
2- Make sure pyo and wxPython are installed
    py -3 -m pip install pyo wxPython
3- Start the python interpreter
    py -3
4- Then, enter these lines:
    from pyo import *
    s = Server().boot()
    a = Sine(mul=0.3).out()
    s.start()

You should hear the sine wave!

MacOS:

1- Open a terminal
2- Make sure pyo and wxPython are installed
    python3 -m pip install pyo wxPython
3- Start the python interpreter
    python3

4- Then, enter these lines:
    from pyo import *
    s = Server().boot()
    a = Sine(mul=0.3).out()
    s.start()

You should hear the sine wave!
