Making a metronome. (Need help with the sound part)

Here's my code for a text based metronome:

import time tempo = input("What tempo would you like your beeps in? ") print("Outputting the word \"Beep\" at {} times per minute".format(tempo)) count = 1 while 1 == 1: print("Beep number: {}".format(count)) time.sleep(60 / int(tempo)) count += 1

so it takes the input value tempo through a question, then has a count that increases each time and outputs this Beep number: 1 Beep number: 2

and so on until 1 stops equaling 1 which is never.How would I add a sound to this code so when the beep comes the computer will output a sound? links or directions to where to learn about this would be much appreciated. using python 3. Thanks

The mechanism for sound creation might depend on your operating system. But if you're on windows, you can make use of the windsound library. A very short duration "Beep" might sound much like a metronome tick.
