Here's the full error log I receive when using the code I submitted with
both ..effects and sound.effects. It also includes a print out of the sys
path as run from vocoder.

I tried running this in 3.7.2 and still get the same errors. It seems like
it's already on the sys path? I'm not saying there is a bug in python
itself, it's just not at all clear from the documentation that what is
described as being a way to access sibling packages actually works.

Given the attached code sample, as a newb I'd greatly appreciate an example
of how to take that sample and turn it into functioning code with whatever
modifiers is necessary. Ultimately whatever changes are made I'd like to
see reflected in the documentation for the intra-reference section.
