Abstract: The SOAR Telescope now counts with a new observation mode called SAM-FP. It consists of a Fabry-Perot (FP) interferometer installed within the SOAR Adaptive Module (SAM) and allows us to perform 3D spectroscopy over a field of 3 x 3 arcmin. Depending on the FP used, a resolving power of 4500 or 11500 near Hα can be reached. We present here the status of our efforts in developing tools to reduce FP data. This is currently being done using Python and the standard libraries for Astronomy. The available tools can be used to perform the basic image reductions, build data-cubes, extract phase-maps, fit them and apply them to the science cubes. Finally, they perform wavelength calibrations and extract the main 2D maps from these cubes. We will focus on performance of the existing tools applied to simulated and real data.
