Need advice on how to install this piece of free software

Hello everyone,

I am starting a YouTube channel, and require the use of two usb microphones, which is proving to be a challenge. Fortunately, I stumbled across this free software on github:

The downside is, that it seems to require PIP, which I understand is not included in the repos because it has the potential of installing non-free software. I have no intention of using non-free software.

If anyone has any advice, it would greatly be appreciated. It would be a shame to need to install a non-free distro on my other system, just so I can use this free software. I understand the principle of not including PIP, but it this case it seems it would would have an undesirable effect (forcing non-free software to use free software).

Just search "install pip manually" on duckduckgo. There's an official pip documentation page with easy to use tools to install it on any distro with a python environment. Trisquel doesn't package it, although Guix does, so there's a legitimate dispute about its status between two FSF approved distros.
