The inspiration for this project came from a series of YouTube videos I was
shown, called 8D Audio.
Yeah, the name doesn't make a ton of sense, but anyways, I thought this was pretty neat. I think it would be cool to try and make a series of signal processing methods to make any song "8D Audio". This is what it looks like so far.
The dependancies required to run the script are in
requirments.txt. This was built using python 3.6.5, you can install the dependancies with the command
pip install -r requirements.txt
To add effects chains to the songs such as reverb, you need SoX installed on your computer. If you are on Windows, make sure you add SoX to PATH in enviorment variables. The web app also now has the funcitonality to download a song from youtube given a link. In order for this to run locally, you may also need ffprobe or avprobe. I use ffprobe, you can download it here.
The system architecture is as follows.
Currently, audio moves on horizontal plane and vertical plane with effects chain and is pretty close to achieving "8D" status. Some other things I am wanting to approve:
