GNUsound

GNUsound is a sound editor for GNU/Linux. It supports multiple tracks, multiple outputs, and 8, 16, or 24/32-bit samples. It can read and write many audio formats through a number of supported file format libraries (such as AudioFile, libsndfile, and libmp3lame), and it can extract audio from a variety of video files through FFmpeg. It supports OSS, ALSA, or JACK for playback/capture, as well as a large number of high-quality audio effects through the LADSPA plugin architecture.

Great program
I've tried a few of the other multi-track recorders out there for Linux and this one gave me the fewest problems. It's very user-friendly and rather sophisicated. I was able to cut a rough demo with my band with minimal effort with this program. I can't think of a better hard disk recorder for linux.

Documentation
There seem to be little documentation, the web site for the project is a simple file listing :)
The app is working though which is more than several other audio app on linux can claim .
All in all keep up the good work and please do make installation instructions available even a simple INSTALL in the tar with a "make install" would be nice ; )

Good job ..and happy hacking

Make the source available please
Right now when you click the url all you get is a README file with the following content:

"GNUsound is a sound editor for Linux. It is available on request." :/

If you're concerned about the bandwidth you could host it on savannah.gnu.org/
