# Installation¶

## Requirements¶

Obviously, you’ll need Python. We normally use Python 3.x, but it should also work with Python 2.x. NumPy and SciPy are needed for the calculations. If you also want to plot the resulting sound fields, you’ll need matplotlib.

Instead of installing all of them separately, you should probably get a Python distribution that already includes everything, e.g. Anaconda.

## Installation¶

Once you have installed the above-mentioned dependencies, you can use pip to download and install the latest release of the Sound Field Synthesis Toolbox with a single command:

python3 -m pip install sfs --user


If you want to install it system-wide for all users (assuming you have the necessary rights), you can just drop the --user option.

To un-install, use:

python3 -m pip uninstall sfs
