Python Tone Generator

A new Python-based Tone Generator application is available from the AA6E software library at It was a learning exercise for me to get acquainted with the wxWidgets cross-platform library for software development. We are also using the wxPython library that provides a Python "wrapper".

The present version is for Linux and Unix only, since it makes use of the OSSaudiodev module for sound generation.

Tone will work with dual soundcards, and will provide single or dual tones with sine-, square-, or triangular-waveforms. It can be useful for many kinds of system tests, including intermodulation distortion.

Thanks for releasing this little tool, wish it was a command line tool though, so it would be easier to study, but still. :)
