Hello, I would like to do a fft on an mp3 in python. I beleive I have 
all of the fft stuff straight in my mind but am not sure of the best way 
to get the sample data into a python array. I ran accross a web site a 
while back which suggested using sox to convert a wav file into a raw 
sample file and then open the raw file with python. However, I did not 
bookmark this site when I came accross it and cannot seem to find it 
now. If anyone has any suggestions as to a good way to get sample data 
out of an mp3 and into a python array for an fft I would greatly 
appreciate your suggestions. Thanks a lot. -Garett
