Installing aubio

.. highlight:: bash

A number of distributions already include aubio. Check your favorite package management system, or have a look at the download page.

aubio uses waf to configure, compile, and test the source. A copy of waf is included along aubio, so all you need is a terminal and a recent python installed.

Source code

Check out the download page for more options:

The latest stable release can be found at

$ curl -O
$ tar xf aubio-0.4.1.tar.bz2
$ cd aubio-0.4.1

The latest develop branch can be obtained with:

$ git clone git:// aubio-devel
$ cd aubio-devel
$ git fetch origin develop:develop
$ git checkout develop


To compile the C library, examples programs, and tests, run:

$ ./waf configure

Check out the available options using ./waf configure --help | less. Once you are done with configuration, you can start building:

$ ./waf build

To install the freshly built C library and tools, simply run the following command:

$ sudo ./waf install


If you wish to uninstall the files installed by the install command, use uninstall:

$ sudo ./waf uninstall

To clean the source directory, use the clean command:

$ ./waf clean

To also forget the options previously passed to the last ./waf configure invocation, use the distclean command:

$ ./waf distclean
