Greetings, first, I'm totally new to python.

What I'm attempting to do is rebuild a clipped off sound wave.

As I've been poking around I've come across things like "cubic spline interpolation" (that sounds like what I need -- but really is way over my head)

I've come across other posts that I've gleaned some code from and have put together the following test program.

The data points are from a real (clean) wave cycle out of a sound file.

I'm then clipping a number of them to simulate a clipped wave.

The spline and interp1d routines do run, but output what I'm putting in.

So, looking for some experience/help/direction ... thanks

What I'd like to see are values similar to the original values I clipped.
