aubio is a library for audio labelling. Features include onset detection, silence detection, beat tracking, and pitch detection. The goal of this project is to provide automatic labelling features to other audio software projects. Functions can be used offline in sound editors and software samplers, or online in audio effects and virtual instruments.
Sonic Visualiser is an application for viewing and analysing the contents of music audio files, containing advanced waveform and spectrogram viewers as well as editors for many sorts of audio annotations. It supports sophisticated audio selection, looping, and playback features, as well as the Vamp audio feature extraction plugin format.
Audacity is a cross-platform multitrack audio editor. It allows you to record sounds directly or to import Ogg, WAV, AIFF, AU, IRCAM, or MP3 files. It features a few simple effects, all of the editing features you should need, and unlimited undo. The audio I/O uses PortAudio, which fully supports OSS, Mac OS X CoreAudio, and Windows WMME, and can be compiled with support for ALSA and Jack.
Freecycle is a beat slicer providing amplitude domain and frequency domain beat matching and zero crossing algorithms. It exports sliced audio chunks and generates a MIDI file which can be used to play the sliced loop. Alternatively, you can jam with it as soon as you've made slices using a MIDI keyboard or sequencer. Freecycle also exports AKAI S5000/S6000/Z4/Z8 .AKP files to be used with your favorite sampler, SoundFont files, and supports slice drag and drop from the application to the desktop. It can process the audio inline using LADSPA effects, as well as applying envelopes to seperate slices.
AudioSlicer is a Cocoa GUI application that finds all silences in an audio file and allows you to split it into several smaller audio files and to name/tag them properly. While most other tools split automatically according to certain criteria, AudioSlicer shows you all silences within a certain range of duration. You can then listen and decide whether you want to split there. The splitting is done without loss; there is no decoding and re-encoding of audio data.
soniK is a digital audio editor for the KDE platform. It allows you to record, edit, and process sounds on your computer. Its main features include recording and playback using your computer's sound card, visualization of the audio as a waveform or a spectrogram, the ability to edit audio and transform it with a wide variety of plugins, and the generation of new sounds.
KPlaylistCreator is a jukebox for KDE. It scans for MP3 and Ogg Vorbis files, located in various directories, creates a unique tree view with genre, artist, album, and song title information, features a user rates mechanism, a user playlist manager, and a wizard playlist creator, edits tags for both MP3 (ID3 v2) and Ogg Vorbis files, checks directories for new and missing files automatically, sends playlists to a directory, XMMS, or to K3B, displays and sets the album art of MP3 files, creates playlists from a virtual library, and includes popup windows to indicate change of song.
The Snack sound extension adds commands for sound play/record and sound visualization, e.g. waveforms and spectrograms. It supports in- memory sound objects, file based audio, streaming audio, WAV, AU, AIFF, and MP3 file formats, synchronous and asynchronous playback. The visualization canvas item types update in real-time and can output postscript. New commands and file formats can be added using the Snack C-API.
