Playing multiple sounds at once
This tutorial will explain different methods attempted in getting multiple sounds to play concurrently, as well as the method that was most valuable.
- Pick wav files desired to be played.
- Load wav files in code and save it to a variable that can be called later.
- Find a line of code that will play the sound.
- Find a line of code that will allow the sound to be played while different notes are being played at the same time.
Pydub and Pygame
These two libraries were used in finding the best way to play a sound by itself.
Using pydub: Using pygame:
firstSound = pygame.mixer.Sound('/home/pi/laserharp-sounds/samples/ambi_dark.wav') secondSound = pygame.mixer.Sound('/home/pi/laserharp-sounds/samples/ambi_choir.wav') firstSound.play() secondSound.play()
or firstSound = pygame.mixer.music('/home/pi/laserharp-sounds/samples/ambi_dark.wav') secondSound = pygame.mixer.music('/home/pi/laserharp-sounds/samples/ambi_choir.wav') firstSound.play() secondSound.play()
