Installation guide

The latest release is availabe on pypi. Assuming you have already numpy installed, you can install pysptk by:

pip install pysptk

If yout want the latest development version, run:

pip install git+


git clone
cd pysptk
python develop # or install

This should resolve the package dependencies and install pysptk property.


If you use the development version, you need to have cython (and C compiler) installed to compile cython module(s).

For Windows users

There are some binary wheels available on pypi, so you can install pysptk via pip without cython and C compilier if there exists a binary wheel that matches your environment (depends on bits of system and python version). For now, wheels are available for:

  • Python 2.7 on 32 bit system
  • Python 2.7 on 64 bit system
  • Python 3.4 on 32 bit system

If there is no binary wheel available for your environment, you can build pysptk from the source distribution, which is also available on pypi. Note that in order to compile pysptk from source in Windows, it is highly recommended to use Anaconda , since installation of numpy, cython and other scientific packages is really easy. In fact, continuous integration in Windows on AppVeyor uses Anacona to build and test pysptk. See pysptk/appveyor.yml for the exact build steps.
